Australia’s Got Talent, 7.30pm, Seven
‘‘ Hold on to your hats, Australia, the most unpredictable talent show this country has ever seen is back.’’ So says Grant Denyer, pictured, the most unpredictable weatherman the country has seen, as he heralds a second season of Australia’s Got Talent . The judges are Dannii Minogue, Red Symonds and Tom Burlinson. It’s all so . . . unpredictable.
Millionaire’s Mission, 8.30pm, ABC1
Oh, brother. Development agency World Vision challenges eight top British business leaders to improve the living standards of a remote Ugandan farming community. With a tone somewhere between Celebrity Big Brother and Survivor , the show demonstrates the abject failure of rich egomaniacs to get along harmoniously enough to agree on much of anything that will help.
Jennifer Byrne Presents Peter, Paul & Ian, 10pm, ABC1
Nope, they’re not a new folk group harmonising their way through Leaving on a Jet Plane and Early Morning Rain . The three are writers Peter Carey, Paul Auster and Ian McEwan. From the get- go, Byrne is so effusive she makes freshly opened champagne seem flat. Is everything really so funny and wonderful, Jennifer?
Balls of Steel, 10.30pm, Nine
Despite its vaguely pornographic title and opening comments from host Mark Dolan (‘‘ This is the show where new comedians and performers gather together to impress you with the size of their balls’’), it is more testing than testicular, as regulars such as the Annoying Devil do their best to get the collective dander of the British public up.
