Just when you think you can’t get enough new shows… Here comes Same Name, Camelot, Top Gear Australia, The X Factor Australia and series two of James May’s Toy Stories. It’s crazy. Mind you, just when you thought reality talent shows were resting, The X Factor comes back with a massive push across 4 nights a week at 7:30pm through the auditions for this series. It looks… big, brash, and predictable (sadly).

James May’s Toy Stories is back with a new series – and if the first was anything to go by, this will be more of the May insight into some of the joyous toys of our childhood, and how to turn them into a massive challenge.

While it only lasted one season, Camelot premieres tonight on Channel 9, featuring Joseph Fiennes as Merlin. It’s a confusing one as it’s reportedly a great series even though it was canned at the end of it’s debut collection of eps. Tune in and work it out for yourself (just don’t get attached).

Suits, while getting bumped around on Monday nights, is a lot of fun and deserves better treatment by Channel 7. Intelligent, brash and smart it’s unusual for a US legal drama – so give it some eyes and show it some support.
