Now that we’ve hit the first week of non-ratings leading into Christmas, I’d love to say the dross is fading… but I’d be lying. Here it comes thick and fast. We are being treated to some great re-runs over summer that are worth watching again: Offspring is being repeated from S01E01 starting this week every night on Channel 10; Sherlock re-runs are here over the next three weeks on Channel 9 (which will be awesome); and expect some decent movies to pop up here and there. We’ve got some series finales too, as well as some first runs – welcome to nearly December.

Here we go, people… It’s A Knockout is back and should be a lot of fun. At least we’re not being expected to think over summer.

Matt Passmore’s break into the US in The Glades finally airs here. You have to question if it’s so good why have they held it until now. We’ll find out on Monday night.

There are a couple of shows left to finish up this week: Good News Week has become a much-maligned gem, and worth catching the last ep on Tue 10:30pm, Ch10; Good Game will wrap with it’s games of the year in various categories – and there will be heaps on Tue 8:30pm, ABC2; After 21 episodes Crownies offers us the finale, and not a moment too soon on Thu 9:30pm, ABC1.
