This is it. The final episodes of The Renovators (a few weeks too late for some). Week 42 brings more suprises and new shows, with some other shows still banked up to air (with only 7 weeks of the ratings season left, it’s getting squeezy!). Today for the first time the SuperCheapAuto Bathurst 1000 is being broadcast in Australia in HD on 7mate, though the number of ads Ch7 are airing is wearing thin on an already skeptical audience only just getting their event LIVE live to air. Seems you can’t keep everyone happy all the time.

Some great movies on TV this week, starting with the Australian thriller/horror classic Wolf Creek. John Jarratt’s laugh will haunt you.

The new Chaser series The Hamster Wheel is exactly the irreverant fun expected of the team, with Ch10 copping a hiding last week. Expect more of the same this week.

One of the strangest and funniest movies is on GO! this Saturday night in The Big Lebowski. The Dude abides.
