Pawn Stars 6

It's clear that the Gold and Silver Pawn shop in Las Vegas, Nevada is no ordinary pawn shop as Pawn Stars Rick Harrison, Corey Harrison and Chumlee Russell wheel and deal items ranging from iconic movie props to historical weapons.

If these items are as real as their owner's say they are, they can be worth a lot.

Pawn Stars returns with an all new season and will introduce exciting and unique new items to the shop that cannot be passed up.

With some key appraisers and visitors separating and verifying the real from the fake, what deals are in store?

In the Season 6 premiere, "Patton Pending": The Pawn Stars snap to attention as they check out a photo album signed by one of history's greatest military leaders – General George S. Patton.

Containing pictures labeled as "classified", can the gang make a strategic advance for these images from World War II or will they be out-maneouvered and forced to retreat?

Then, it's off the races when Rick and Chumlee come across a pair of jockey boots autographed by horse-racing legend Willie Shoemaker.

Will Rick chomp at the bit for this rare piece of sports history or will he back the wrong horse?

And later, a man comes in hoping to sell his Kevlar bulletproof vest.

Will Corey take aim at buying this heavy-duty body armour, or is this deal too tough to penetrate?

Jane the Virgin 3

Channel: SABC2
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Comedy-Drama

Jane the Virgin 3

This has been a year of growth and change for Jane Villanueva as she adapted to her brand new role - as a virgin mother.

Totally normal, right?

Luckily, she had her mother, Xiomara, and her grandmother, Alba, to lean on, as she struggled to balance graduate school, work and her son Mateo (aka the cutest kid on the planet).

And oh yeah, she was also in a much debated love triangle.

Would Jane choose to be with Michael, the steadfast detective? Or Rafael, Mateo's father?

And at last Jane chose Michael. And the wedding planning began.

Of course, no one was more thrilled than Jane's telenovela star father Rogelio, who was #teammichael from the start.

Oh, and speaking of Rogelio - he was in love with Jane's mother, Xo. But alas, he wanted to have kids and she didn't.

So they broke up and he threw himself into his new telenovela... and into his new telenovela headwriter.

Complicated, right?

And speaking of complicated - let's talk Rafael.

He found himself a father of three this season, after his ex-wife Petra inseminated herself with his last sperm sample. And they had twins.

Plus, poor Rafael found out his mother was a crime lord. So yeah. Pretty heavy stuff.

Also heavy... Rogelio threw Jane the wedding of her dreams. But then, in the final moments, Michael was shot.

Which is where we left off...

In the Season 3premiere, "Chapter Forty-Five": Jane discovers that Michael was shot and finds herself having to make difficult choices.

With Rafael focused on keeping Mateo safe, Anezka, who is pretending to be Petra, "helps" the cops with their investigation.

However, it isn't long before everyone starts to notice that "Petra" is acting odd.

Meanwhile, Rogelio is trying to keep everything out of the press for Jane, but in order to do so finds himself in an awkward position and asks for Xo's help.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine 8

Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows the exploits of Det. Jake Peralta and his stoically ever-professional Capt. Raymond Holt, along with their diverse, lovable colleagues as they police the NYPD's 99th Precinct.

In this final season of the series, Jake and the squad must try to balance their personal lives and their professional lives over the course of a very difficult year.

Rounding out the ensemble is Sgt. Amy Santiago, who has a passion for organisation and a weakness for dork dancing; Lt. Terry Jeffords, a mountain of a man whose most powerful muscle is his sweetheart; Jake's best friend and human puppy dog, Det. Charles Boyle; and the incredibly secretive, tough-as-nails Rosa Diaz.

Also part of the Nine-Nine are veteran officers Det. Scully and Det. Hitchcock, whose only skill as police officers is their ability to make a passable pot of coffee.

In the Season 8 premiere, "The Good Ones": Amy returns from maternity leave as Jake and Rosa work a difficult case.

In the second episode next week, "The Lake House": The squad takes up Holt on an offer for a weekend getaway.

Border Security: America's Front Line 3

Constantly on the lookout for weapons, illegal travellers and contraband, there's never a dull moment for the men and women who protect America's border.

Border Security: America's Front Line follows the work of US Customs and Border Protection agents and officers as they screen travellers entering the country, inspect cargo and agricultural products destined for US soil, all the while securing the longest border in the world.

Guns, drugs, undeclared money, and much more - it's all in a day's work for these officers.

In the Season 3 premiere: A criminal past and concealed pistol could spell trouble for one traveller; and CBP crack the case on some undercooked eggs.

At the San Francisco International mail facility, a parcel is packing more than protein powder and in Buffalo, a Canadian seeks entry without her US green card.

Meanwhile, a traveller's tiger claw necklace is not up to scratch with CBP.
