The Bernie Mac Show 5
eExtra (Openview 105 / DStv 195 / StarSat 489)
Features comic actor Bernie Mac with material loosely based on his stand-up comedy acts, exploring his humorous parenting style as he attempts to raise his sister's three children while she recovers from addiction.
Much of the humour in the show is derived from Mac's continual adjustment to and his unique take on parenthood.
A frequent motif of the show is the juxtaposition of Mac's acerbic comments, such as his threats to "bust the (children's) heads 'til the white meat shows," and the deep parental affection he feels towards the trio, which often brings him to the verge of tears during happy moments.
In the Season 5 premiere, "Father Knows Best": Bryan, a cool guy from the Chicago block, arrives on Bernie's doorstep, claiming he's Bryana's father.
Bernie is cautiously supportive - until Bryan ignores Jordan and Vanessa and tries to buy Bryana's affection.
In the second episode (new episodes air on Saturdays and Sundays at the same time), "Wrestling with a Sticky Situation": Jordan is recruited onto the wrestling team and starts winning by default as there is never anyone to compete against in his weight class.
But when he eats himself out of that class, Jordan is forced to lose weight or lose face.
Bernie gets some expert advice when superstar pro wrestler Steve Austin joins him in his confessional.

Total Blackout 2
eReality (Openview 108)
Game show which features contestants that have to complete challenges such as identifying things with either their hands, nose, or mouth; gathering items; or getting from point A to Point B, while being totally in the dark.
There is nothing more terrifying than being in complete darkness. When the lights go off, our imaginations take hold and our nightmares come to life.
Contestants get plunged into blinding darkness to confront their deepest fears in Total Blackout.
Hosted by Jaleel White (Family Matters), Total Blackout is a half-hour, extreme game show in which contestants battle each other and their fears in a series of challenges.
However, all the challenges are played in complete darkness. There are no lights, no blindfolds and no-holds barred as the players face their anxieties and unexpected surprises in a series of nerve-wracking games.
The contestants see nothing but the audience sees all. Here's where imagination can be one's worst enemy. It's like Fear Factor – but in the dark.
Challenges include walking across a plank without the benefit of actually seeing the plank (or how far above the floor it really is), crawling through tunnels filled with unidentified objects, and guessing the weight of objects and/or people (from a large snake to a sumo wrestler) just by touch.
But the highlight of Total Blackout episodes tends to be the challenge that requires contestants to identify the contents of six boxes.
Those challenges have produced freak-outs and squeamish responses to things as scary as live tarantulas and as benign as teddy bears and hairbrushes.
Through Jaleel's guidance, contestants have to heighten their senses of hearing, smell and touch as they try to identify objects, which may include creepy crawlers of every kind, traverse through obstacles, real or imagined and beat their opponents' performance in order not to be dropped through the stage and eliminated out of the game.
After three rounds, the contestant who can overcome their own fears and out perform their opponents, will stand victorious and win five thousand dollars.
