The Biggest Loser 18

A revamped version of the original series, The Biggest Loser will provide the contestants with a 360-degree view of what it takes to make a serious lifestyle change, rather than focus solely on weight loss.

Twelve people who have struggled with weight for their entire lives compete to lose the excuses, lose the fear and, ultimately, lose the most weight.

For the winner, there's $100,000, but for all the contestants there's the chance of a long-term, healthy lifestyle in this new and updated version of the format.

With the help of host Bob Harper and trainers Erica Lugo and Steve Cook, the contestants will face a series of tough challenges - physical, mental and emotional - that will change the way they eat, think and move.

Who will have the willpower to win the money AND win back their life?

George Clarke's Old House, New Home

Restoration man George Clarke shows that it's possible to create a modern interior without destroying a property's historical charm.

In the series premiere, "Devon": George visits a Victorian semi where the kitchen has been plonked in completely the wrong place.

First Apocalypse

Sixty five million years ago the dinosaurs were wiped off the face of the Earth. Over the years there have been a number of theories as to why.

For the last three decades it has been thought that the cause was an asteroid impact in Mexico.

Now, some scientists believe that a giant volcano in India was the culprit, as well as other environmental factors.

Either way, many agree that the demise of the dinosaurs could not have been a simple story of a single impact event, followed by complete extinction.

How can we learn from the dinosaur's fall from grace and how much our own fate may be intertwined with theirs?

Are we doomed to follow in the dinosaurs' footsteps, or do we face extinction?

Dinner at Somizi's

Somizi cooks up a storm and lays out his finest china for family and friends in a cooking show that sees culinary deftness meeting hearty conversations.

The idea is to create a fly-on-the-wall format that will showcase both Somizi and his guests.

The Idols judge and radio personality, accompanied by his husband Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo, open the doors of their house to the guests and Somizi shares his story about each guest before heading to the kitchen to introduce the ingredients and the meal he will make.

From a traditional dish or bake to exotic concoctions, Somizi brings his kasi flavour and humour as he experiments with his favourite recipes and techniques.

The topics on the table vary from lighthearted to "mature and insightful" as the dinner party indulges in what Somizi whips up.

In the moments between the cooking, Somizi and guests talk, play games and make cocktails. The show closes the cooking and guests section with Somizi making a cocktail that best represents the guests.

He recaps the meal and the preparation and concludes by sharing an inspirational quote called "food for thought".

In the series premiere, the entertainer hosts actress, singer and author Rami Chuene for a night of good food and conversations.

Dive into the world of Chuene as she opens up about the entertainment industry and its hard truths, her love life and her feisty social media presence.

To give them a fighting chance against such an experienced and successful chef, the contestant chooses what recipe they and Bobby make, before the judges decide whose was best.

In the Season 11 premiere, "All at Stake": Nostalgia is in the air as Chopped judge Amanda Freitag and The Chew's Carla Hall aim to put an end to Bobby Flay's golden era.

They've called in butcher Charles Bauer and top Miami chef Todd Erickson to get the job done.

Who's got the old-school skills to become the new star of Bobby's arena?
