What’s on TV this week? Mon 6 Oct – Sun 12 Oct

What are you holding your breath for on TV this week? While last week was the week for reality TV, thanks to a lack of ratings season, this week could start to be different.  Personally, we can’t wait for Party Tricks that starts tonight and Madame Secretary which kicked off last week.   The two new dramas that will likely be well-followed in coming weeks.

In Party Tricks, a show by the producers of Offspring, Asher Keddie & Rodger Corser take opposite sides of Victorian politics but are joined by a secret affair.  And in Madame Secretary is an American drama television series about Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, a female Secretary of State.  It features Tea Leoni, a widely loved TV star.

But dramas aren’t the only thing to talk about.  There’s an exciting week of TV ahead starting with a heart-wrenching Australian Story, then a unique bio on Steve Jobs, a spot of X-factor, and some lingering entertainment.   Enjoy our picks and tell us today the shows you like to watch on TV!
