Channel: SABC1
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Reality Competition, Fashion

Aspiring fashion designers compete in weekly challenges, receiving mentoring and guidance, with one contestant winning each week until a winner is crowned.

Each week the designers are given a brief and are followed by a camera crew as they go about doing their research, buying suitable material, doing measurements and sewing.

At the end of the task each designer showcases their work in front of the three judges and one designer's dream is shattered by elimination at the end of every episode.

TX Time: 21h00

Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy) is a new series regular as Samantha Wheeler - a talented new partner at Pearson Specter Litt who challenges the status quo and will either become the firm's greatest ally... or most powerful enemy.

This season, Harvey and Zane grapple over who should lead as the firm works through its transition.

Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby 2

Channel: BBC Lifestyle (DStv 174)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Reality

The aspirational series exploring extraordinary hotels, their staff and communities is checking in for a second stay.

Writer and critic Giles Coren teams up again with international chef Monica Galetti to embark on a journey through the world's most remarkable hotels - offering behind-the-scenes insights, compelling characters and experiences of local life beyond the hotel lobby.

In the first episode of the new season, Giles and Monica fly to the other side of the world to work in one of the world's most luxurious eco resorts on the small island of Tetiaroa in French Polynesia.

One Mic 2

Channel: SABC1
TX Time: 18h00
Genre: Reality Competition, Music

Each week four MCs compete against each other in a two round knockout battle. In the first round they're given a word and they have to spontaneously improvise a rap/poem/hip hop performance around it. They do this with a beat - and without a beat.

The judges choose the two best MCs who move on to the second round where they perform their own track in a battle to win the episode.

Ultimately one winner is determined by the resident hip-hop judges and the studio audience.

So the Mike character really had to leave Suits because of Meagan Markle's departure from the show?  So unfair if that is the case (same thing happened with the Agnes Matabane character on Isidingo, she also had to leave following the firing of Don Mlangeni Nawa  from the show, talk about collateral damage, so cutthroat)
I hope they won't live to regret the addition of Katherine Heigl  to the show.
