Ghost Whis­perer, 7.30pm, Seven When­ever a net­work starts bang­ing out first- run episodes in dou­bles, you can be pretty sure they’re not that pleased with the pro­gram or its per­for­mance. Delia’s First Ghost kicks off tonight’s two- hour marathon, in which ghost whis­perer Melissa Gor­don ( Jen­nifer Love He­witt) ‘‘ comes out’’ about her su­per­nat­u­ral abil­i­ties to her mate Delia ( The Prac­tice ’ s Cam­ryn Man­heim), whose dead hus­band ap­pears to be try­ing to screw her chances with dates. The dis­clo­sure doesn’t go well. This is episode No 41, and the one to fol­low, The Cra­dle Will Rock , is No 38, in which reg­u­lar char­ac­ter Delia won’t have a clue. So much for con­ti­nu­ity. Amer­i­can Chop­per, 7.30pm, Dis­cov­ery Golf metaphors abound in this episode, about cre­at­ing three iden­ti­cal bikes to hon­our Amer­i­can golf leg­end By­ron Nelson. Will there be three holes in one, or a triple bo­gey? Paul Sr, Paul Jr and Mikey have their work cut out, and ten­sions be­tween them mount. Nelson re­tired at 34 and then re­fo­cused on char­ity work, which the Amer­i­can Chop­per lads aren’t strangers to them­selves. Guru Greg, 8.35pm, ABC This doc­u­men­tary fol­lows for­mer Aus­tralian cricket star Greg Chap­pell’s tu­mul­tuous term as coach of the In­dian team. Nar­rated by John Doyle, it be­gins on that mys­ti­cal day in May 2005 when Chap­pell took on the tough­est job in world cricket: to coach In­dia to World Cup glory in just two years. Was Chap­pell ready for the cul­tural phe­nom­e­non that is In­dian cricket? Did he take on more than he could chew?
