8.30pm on Ten

Special guest star tonight is Michelle Obama – and why not? This is still the world’s most watched TV drama with over 16 million viewers every week in the US alone. With that many eyeballs, it’s no wonder the White House allowed it to become the first TV drama to film inside. [AM]

The Grinder
8pm on Eleven

New US sitcom about an actor who played a TV lawyer (Rob Lowe) returning to his hometown to work in the family business as lawyer, despite his lack of training. While much is made of Lowe playing the older brother of The Wonder Year’s Fred Savage, most miss that their father is played by the wonderful William Devane. He is known for playing Kennedy brothers, 24 and one of the most interesting and complex villains ever seen on a nighttime soap, Greg Sumner in 269 episodes of Knots Landing. [AM]
