Entertain Us (7-8-2018): The good, the bad and the ugly of TV

WELCOME to the mid-season ratings period, where channels test out new content and wheel in shows they have been promoting for far too long.

Channel 7 has brought back Little Big Shots on Sunday nights — to me it’s like Australia’s Funniest Home Videos. Not that people get a lot of balls thrown at their groin but it’s cute, people like to laugh and have a fun time as well as be amazed at talented tots.

On Monday they are wheeling out Dance Boss, which to be honest, I haven’t watched and am unlikely to.

Wikipedia tells me it is a reality TV dance competition presented by Dannii Minogue where teams of workers from the same workplace or profession compete to win $100,000 while being judged by Tap Dog Adam Garcia, reality TV product Timomatic and former Home and Away actress Sharni Vinson.

Seven is still spruiking the Julia Zemiro-led All Together Now, and has been since the tennis, with no actual air date seen and has also started pumping up an If You Are The One homage in Take Me Out.

The Block is back on Channel 9 and how that show continues to get bigger and more intense I will never know. It does seem like the right place to be a tradie is somewhere in the Melbourne suburbs though as they never seem to stop production.

Hamish and Andy’s True Story is back for a second year, which is a good thing. The comic duo sit down with an everyday person and recount something which actually happened to them while events are being recreated and filmed as dramatizations. Think Drunk History. But with  less alcohol.

Channel 10 has brought back Russell Coight’s All Aussie Adventures which rightly deserves its own column with hundreds of words praising slapstick humour and the sheer ridiculousness of the situations.

Survivor is also back, this season pitting competitors like football stars against supposed challengers. I don’t know how it’s going, I’m waiting for it to be finished so I can watch The Bachelor. ­
