TV.com's pick of the best TV shows on Aussie screens this week.
Australia's Got Talent
Final. This week will decide the winner of Seven's talent quest and the hot favourites are singer Bobby Andonov and dance act Justice Crew. Last week the judges told Andonov he may have chosen the wrong song, while Justice Crew again proved they could deliver another showstopper. Or will another act upstage them all? The final also includes performances from 2009 winner Mark Vincent and judge Brian McFadden.
Airs: 7:30pm Tuesday on Seven
Final. The re-opening of an old case in Mexico has turned out to be a plan to get to Gibbs (Mark Harmon), and avenge the death of a drug dealer. Now an angry daughter, Paloma Reynosa (Jacqueline Obradors), has him in her grasp -- and in a season finale that's never a good place to be. She is threatening to wreak revenge on his family. TEN's most popular crime drama will switch to repeat episodes from next week.
Airs: 8:30pm Tuesday on TEN
This is the second to last week ever for Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) ahead of next week's double episode finale. He's isolated just about everyone in his fury over the killing of Renee Walker (Annie Wersching), and determined to get to President Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin). Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub) is effectively the only one who believes in Bauer, but can she stop him from going too far?
Airs: 8:30pm Tuesday on 7TWO
The Gruen Transfer
New series. Wil Anderson is back with Todd Sampson and Russel Howcroft to rip apart the advertising industry with cheeky insight. On the agenda this week are those ads for and against the government's proposed mining tax, plus The Pitch and a new segment looking for the Worst Ad ever.
Airs: 9pm Wednesday on ABC1
New series. One of television's best dramas returns to the screen with the diabolical Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) pitted against the wealthy Tobin family in a huge fraud case. Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) is now working for the DA's office, but you just know she still treads a delicate line between friend and foe with Hewes. Joining the cast are Lily Tomlin and Martin Short, both in dramatic roles, plus Campbell Scott.
Airs: 7:30pm Thursday on W Channel
Hamish & Andy's Caravan of Courage
Special. Last year they criss-crossed the US, now the boys have been caravanning through Great Britain and Ireland. This likeable pair are just about as popular as you can get, and there is talk they may be looking to increase their television output in the future. TEN can only hope it's true. They would be a great successor to Rove.
Airs: 8pm Thursday on TEN
How I Met Your Mother
Returning series. When Lily (Alyson Hannigan) finds out the co-worker Marshall (Jason Segel) is always telling funny stories about is actually a woman, she doesn't get jealous -- which irks Marshall. And when Robin (Cobie Smulders) finds out Ted's (Josh Radnor) students watch her show, she gets a little full of herself until she realises they’ve created a drinking game based on it. This episode is directed by Neil Patrick Harris.
Airs: 8:30pm Thursday on Seven
New series. The vampire, the werewolf and ghost are back in a new series that is sexy, violent and dramatic. There is now a fourth flatmate to share the house while a new villain in the form of Professor Jaggat, suspicious of their powers, is determined to vanquish our heroes. Solid acting, spooky adventures -- this looks like a great season.
Airs: 8:30pm Friday on ABC2
The Good Wife
The "12 Angry Men" episode? Not quite, but the jury in this week's case features heavily. When a shooting takes place at a sorority party a jury is divided over what took place. Interestingly, the story isn't linear either with timeline moving backwards and forwards. Look out for an appearance by Gary Cole -- and wait for a great ending.
Airs: 8:30pm Sunday on TEN
This week the focus shifts to the youthful Michael "Doc" Kanaan (Ryan Cor) and the underlings of Danny 'DK' Karam (Dan Mor). Under DK's instruction they become a reckless, violent force on the streets of the Cross, proving a challenge to both John Ibrahim (Firass Dirani) and Det. Joe Dooley (Wil Traval). This series still works best when it allows actors to show what they can do. There has been an awful lot of window-dressing montages.
Airs: 8:30pm Sunday on Nine
