The Big Bang Theory – 7:30pm on Nine
Nice of Nine to cross promote the return of Game of Thrones to Foxtel next Monday given this episode is all about Sheldon and Leonard coming to blows during a Game of Thrones viewing party. The first run episode is followed by a repeat episode at 8pm, with more repeat episodes on Seven and the Comedy Channel. Given this new episode is number 204, there are plenty int he vault to play ad nauseum. [AM]

Some Like It Hot – 1:50am on ABC
It has been voted the best Comedy Film of all time by the American Film Institute and is a deadset classic with Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in drag alongside Marilyn Monroe in her prime. Believe it or not, Curtis and Lemmon both returned as Daphne and Josephine for a 1961 TV pilot that would have starred Gilligan’s Island’s Tina Louise but thankfully never made it into a series. Watch out for Marilyn Monroe’s near-nude dress, just one of the incredible costumes Australian designer Orry Kelly made for this film and deservedly won the Academy Award. [AM]

The Only Way Is Essex – 9pm on Lifestyle YOU
It only started in 2010 but somehow we are now up to the 17th series! It has introduced us to 28 TOWIEs who have gone on to further success (?) in other UK reality shows such as Celebrity Super Spa and Tumble (where celebrities learn gymnastics. Yes really). It has already been renewed up to Season 21. [AM]

Somewhere – 10:05pm on 7Flix
A slow and plodding Sofia Coppola film that will frustrate a lot of viewers, but the film will stick with you. In the days that follow, the film will prove itself to be a rewarding experience. Actor Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorf) is living at the Chateau Marmont following an injury, but is forced to look after his daughter after her mother has an unspecified medical issue. [DB]


The Good Wife – 8:30pm on Ten
If you haven’t given The Good Wife a proper look in the seven seasons it has run, you’ve missed out on one of televisions most relevant and dependable dramas. Every week the show highlights unique approaches to the US legal system, with various types of court systems in place. With tonight’s episode, the fourth to last ever episode of the series, they start tying up a whole lot of loose ends – starting with the NSA storyline that has been bubbling alongside adjacent to the main plot of the series.
