Noot vir Noot 44

Noot vir Noot is back for its 44th season with a new host for the first time since the show's inception - Emo Adams - who replaces Johan Stemmet.

The show still features all of the fan-favourite classic games, including "Stop die Klok", "Noot Assosiasie" and "Laslappie".

Contestants battle it out against one another. They put their music knowledge to the test by trying to be the first to answer the game questions and clues, performed by DJ Shelly (aka Rochelle de Bruyn).

Emo Adams brings his comedic charm and humour to the role of presenter, creating a fresh and modern take on the game show.

DJ Shelly provides the music clues on both her DJ decks as well as her keyboard. Her love for music and engagement with the contestants creates a new dynamic for the show.

Season 44 also features a new modern visual style. As part of the new season's evolution, the set has been redesigned to incorporate new technology such as video bars, which create an energetic party atmosphere.

A large DJ booth with LED screens is positioned opposite the contestant podiums, which allows for fun and engaging interaction between the host, DJ and contestants.

The new set also features a massive screen on which the games are played, another new element which has been added to the show.

This large game screen will further involve the viewers and encourage them to play along, making them feel part of the action.

The games are also depicted through the use of 3D graphics which are overlaid on our television screens. All of these elements serve to create a new fresh and modern look.

Undercover Billionaire

Channel: Discovery Channel (DStv 121)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Reality

Undercover Billionaire

Glenn Stearns is a self-made billionaire. He grew up poor in the remote outposts of Maryland and was just 14 years old when he became a father.

A few years ago, he sold his company for $2.2-billion and he believes if he can do it, anyone can.

Now, he's putting his belief to the test in a series that taps into his expertise to see if it's possible to create a million-dollar company in just 90 days, as he partners with a deserving candidate.

But, there's a twist: the real identity of the mogul will remain anonymous to everyone around him. He'll be dropped off in a remote community with little resources and no contacts.

The road to success is rarely an easy one – he will need to build connections, relationships and get a job that pays cash to build a company from scratch.

If he's successful, at the end of the 90 days, he'll turn over the company he built to the people who helped him out along the way – and he'll reveal his identity to those around him.

Escape at Dannemora

Channel: M-Net City (DStv 115)
TX Time: 21h40
Genre: Drama, True Crime, Miniseries

Escape at Dannemora

Directed and executive produced by Ben Stiller, Escape at Dannemora is an eight-hour limited series starring Benicio del Toro, Patricia Arquette and Paul Dano.

The show is based on the stranger-than-fiction prison break in upstate New York in the summer of 2015 which spawned a statewide manhunt for two convicted murderers, aided in their escape by a married female prison employee who carried on months-long affairs with both men.

Del Toro plays convicted murderer Richard Matt, an artistic yet intimidating force within the prison, who masterminds the escape.

Arquette plays Tilly Mitchell, a working class wife and mother who supervises the prison tailor shop and becomes sexually involved with both men, ultimately agreeing to hide hacksaw blades in frozen hamburger meat to help them get out.

Dano plays David Sweat, a convicted cop-killer who may have genuine feelings for Tilly and becomes a reluctant partner in Richard Matt's plot.

Genre: Reality Makeover, Home Improvement, DIY, Reality

Flip or Flop Nashville 2
Page Turner and DeRon Jenkins are busy house flippers in Nashville, Tennessee – and to add a little drama they also happen to be exes.

In this series, the driven former couple fight the market – and sometimes each other – in their quest to turn problem homes into profitable ones.

With over a decade in the real estate game, the duo know more than most about houses but hidden difficulties can trip up even the most canny flipper.

Coming up this season, a bizarre basement in a tranquil suburb makes a seemingly easy flip into something more complicated.

And, sparks fly when DeRon buys a modern cottage without consulting Page that turns out to already have many small residents in the form of a termite infestation.

Can the pair overcome their problems, personal and professional, and come out with a profit?

In the Season 2 premiere, "The Dragon in the Basement": DeRon and Page rehab a brick ranch-style house in the tranquil Nashville suburb of Whispering Hills, Tennessee.

When unexpected costs start to mount, however, they attempt to add value by remodeling the home's bizarre basement.

The series looks at the exceptional measures taken to treat these astonishing injuries.
