TV round-up: 4th – 11th July


Whether you want to revel in the last ever season of True Blood, or whether you want to watch an even more dramatic Come Dine With Me with a new twist on the programme, The Edge have got the answers. Read below our full TV round-up for the next seven days.

True Blood: Returning for it’s seventh and final season we rejoin our favourite supernatural anti-heroes for “Jesus Gonna Be Here”. With the previous season hinting that Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) would be returning in some way in the new season, we wait with baited breathe to see if Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) will prove herself as a heroine and deal with the new ‘zombie-vampires’. Airing over on FOX UK on Monday July 7th at 9pm.

Couples Come Dine With Me: Narrated by the comical Dave Lamb and each episode tending to feature a relentless meat-eater, a vegan, a fusspot and a microwave-mealer pit against each other, Come Dine With Me has always been a TV favourite. Now, Channel 4 have decided to make things more interesting by creating Couples Come Dine With Me where now we can see three couples compete for the cash prize over tomato soup and oven-cooked pizza that they ‘made themselves’. Beginning this Monday on Channel 4 at 5pm, this new twist is bound to make things even more entertaining.

624John Bishop’s Australia: As a 25 year-old, John Bishop rode through Australia but at the time didn’t take much of the country in. The 47 year-old comedian has decided to revisit his journey, using his old diary as a tour guide and appreciate Australia for the exquisite country that it is. Meeting incredible people and seeing exceptional places, this three-parter is going to be an interesting exploration of Australia, in John Bishop style. Catch it on Monday, 9pm, BBC One.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Back for it’s fourth season the show is perfect if you’re looking for a bit of light entertainment that’s bound to include hilarious situations and cat-fights. A reality show based around rich ‘housewives’ who certainly never pick up a hoover. Join the favourite crazy Richards sisters, Kyle and Kim, and sit back while British Lisa Vanderpump puts everyone in their place. Tune in Tuesday, 9pm, Lifetime

Stacey-Dooley-2-460x327Stacey Dooley in the USA: Stacey Dooley continues her second investigative series with ‘Homeless in Detroit’. Following from last week’s episode where Dooley investigated the effects of the adoption system in the USA, this week Dooley looks into the vast amount of homelessness in the USA. Visiting Detroit in one of the coldest ever winters, Dooley experiences the life of many people in shelters which are bursting at the seams. Watch the documentary this coming Thursday, at 9pm on BBC Three.

Extant: A brand new sci-fi starring Halle Berry about an astronaut (Berry) who returns home from a year long solo mission in space. She tries to reconnect with her husband, a gifted scientist, and son in their everyday life. Though all is not as it seems as the son is actually a ‘prototype’ for ‘humanichs’ designed by his father. Her experiences in space and home lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history. Airing on Amazon Prime Instant Video on Thursday at 9pm.
