TV High­lights

Your guide to what’s on free- to- air TV this week

Townsville Bulletin - - PREVIEW -

SBS, Fri­day, 6pm If you can ig­nore the an­noy­ingly posh ut­ter­ings of the fe­male voice busily nar­rat­ing this se­ries ( and the twee mu­sic), Ray­mond Blanc’s lov­able French ac­cent and happy de­meanour will win you over. Fea­tur­ing lots of close- up shots of rather de­li­cious fruits, veg­eta­bles and meats be­ing crafted into some­thing de­li­cious- look­ing, these step- by- step in­struc­tions are straight to the point, but de­liv­ered with fi­nesse and a smile by Ray­mond. Tonight, he gen­er­ously lets us in on his se­crets to mas­ter­ing the BBQ and grill. In­cluded on the menu is a grilled egg­plant salad and bar­be­cued chicken.

Stalker

WIN, Sun­day, 11.10pm Brace your­self if you’re a fan of this US se­ries, be­cause things are go­ing to end abruptly – US net­work CBS gave the se­ries the chop af­ter one sea­son. But you might as well en­joy the ride as Dy­lan McDer­mott and Mag­gie Q tr y to pro­tect vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple from stalk­ers. De­tec­tive Jack Lar­son ( McDer­mott) and Lieu­tenant Beth Davis ( Mag­gie Q), her­self a for­mer vic­tim of a stalker, tr y to get to the bot­tom of things af­ter a woman is robbed of her en­gage­ment ring just mo­ments af­ter ac­cept­ing her now- fi­ancé’s pro­posal. There are sev­eral sus­pects who might not be happy about her get­ting mar­ried, and one of them will soon end up dead.

Lip Sync Bat­tle

WIN, Mon­day, 8.40pm Let’s face it, karaoke isn’t for ever yone. Most peo­ple can only muster the courage to belt out a tune af­ter a few drinks, and the per­for­mances are al­most al­ways ter­ri­ble. If you are won­der­ing how a show con­sist­ing en­tirely of karaoke can hold your at­ten­tion, it’s the celebri­ties who are brave enough to do it. Big names have lined up and, as a bonus, these guys ac­tu­ally have tal­ent to spare. Tonight, grid­iron player Deion San­ders is on board, but the face to re­ally get peo­ple talk­ing will be Mr Bad Pub­lic­ity him­self, Justin Bieber. In a hi­lar­i­ously fan­tas­tic per­for­mance, he morphs into Ozzy Ozbourne. Even Bieber’s haters might have a soft spot for him af­ter this.

The Bach­e­lor Aus­tralia

SC TEN, Wed­nes­day, 7.30pm The guilty plea­sure and jewel in Chan­nel Ten’s crown is back. You couldn’t buy the pub­lic­ity the re­al­ity dat­ing show drummed up ear­lier this year when “bach­e­lor” Blake chose and pro­posed to Sam, only to dump her just be­fore the fi­nal episode aired. To make mat­ters worse – or even more en­ter tain­ing – he then hooked up with third run­ner- up Louise. Phew! How will this sea­son’s smooth bach­e­lor Sam ( yes, another Sam, just to con­fuse us) com­pete? Tonight, in a per­fect ploy to get com­pet­i­tive juices flow­ing, it’s up to the Bach­e­lorettes to choose who will go on the night’s first sin­gle date.
