What to Watch: April 25 - May 1

TV.com's pick of the best shows on Aussie screens this week.

Melbourne International Comedy Festival Great Debate
Special. Ajudicated by Corinne Grant, six comedians will argue the topic "It's the end of the world ... as we know it!" Tom Gleeson, 'Lady' Julia Morris, Jason Byrne take on Paul McDermott, Cal Wilson and American Paul F. Tompkins -- this should be fun!

Airs: 8:30pm Monday on Ten

The Tender Hook

Movie. Hugo Weaving, Rose Byrne and Pia Miranda star in this 1920s drama about a beautiful young women caught in a love triangle with her lover, a rogue boxing promoter and his new protege.

Airs: 9:45pm Monday on Ten

Season premiere. Damian Walshe-Howling (Underbelly, East West 101) returns to host another season of the series that gives viewers unprecedented access to the real crusaders serving on the frontline of border control operations.

Airs: 7:30pm Tuesday on Nine

Adam Hills in Gordon St Tonight
Finale. Adam Hills wraps up the season of what is possibly the last successful talk show currently on air. Of course the Royal Wedding will be mentioned and gifts from the audience will be featured. Guests include Meshel Laurie, Celia Pacquola, John Doyle aka 'Roy' from Roy and HG and Dave O'Neil, with musical performances by Melbourne band Oh Mercy and The Soweto Gospel Choir.

Airs: 8:30pm Wednesday on ABC1

William & Kate: A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Movie. Being touted as the worst production about the royal couple, this American telemovie is cheesy, loosely based on fact and terribly cast -- the New Zealand actor who plays Prince William looks more like Harry and Kate Middleton could be almost any long-haired brunette. You have been warned.

Airs: 8:30pm Wednesday on Ten

The Cleveland Show
Finale. Like many a soap or sitcom, the season ends with a wedding episode -- Cleveland's parents are getting remarried, an idea that horrifies him until he is asked to be the best man. However, when he gets dumped in favour of Donna's ex, he takes things into his own hands. Followed by the season two premiere.

Airs: 9pm Wednesday on Eleven

The Royal Wedding
It's all anyone's been talking about for the last few months, but this week has seen Wills and Kate mania become completely overwhelming. The media saturation culminates on The Big Day with Australia being 'lucky' enough to get all the action live during prime time. All the major commercial channels as well as several pay TV channels will give you plenty of choice so you don't miss a moment.

Airs: From 6pm Friday pretty much everywhere.

Movie. Diablo Cody's teen pregnancy story with a difference stars the fantastic Ellen Page in the title role, with notable performances by Michael Cera and Jennifer Garner. Heartwarming and real.

Airs: 8:30pm Saturday on Eleven

MasterChef Australia

Season premiere. The highly-anticipated third season of Ten's massive hit show kicks off with celebrity chef Matt Moran joining Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston on the judging panel.

Airs: 7:30pm Sunday on Ten
