Underbelly, 8.30pm, Nine ( except Melbourne) Along with Wildside , Underbelly is on the edgier side of Australian television crime drama, but in many ways that’s like talking about being on the wrong side of the tracks on Thomas the Tank Engine . Consequently, Underbelly occasionally struggles to balance being hard core without alienating a mainstream audience, and comes off as a gritty soap. Take on the Takeaway, 8.30pm, LifeStyle Food Here’s an interesting idea for a cooking show: a celebrity chef goes out each week on a mission to convince a takeaway food addict to junk the junk food and make their own versions of typical takeaway meals. But here’s the catch: can they do it in the time it would have taken from order to delivery, and at the same price or less? Tonight’s celebrity chef is John Burton Race, pictured, who is only slightly miffed that a guy in a takeaway curry house in Newport thinks he can make a better curry than him. The nerve! The Crown Prince, 8.30pm, Ovation This lavish 2006 Austrian miniseries, produced in English, recounts the Mayerling incident: the murder- suicide of Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria and his lover, baroness Mary Vetsera, in 1889. It puts the romance in its political context, handling the necessary exposition deftly. In its homeland, it attracted almost half the TV- watching audience, but it’s more pleasing to discover that its production company has also made a biopic of 1980s synth pop artist Falco. Rock Me Amadeus, indeed.
