Russell Howard's Good News, Comedy, 9.30pm
There are a few chuckles to be had as British comedian Russell Howard reviews the week's news and viral videos - even though this week's news is from September. It can be a little crass, but still in much better taste than the vile and unfunny Tosh.0.
Witness, Showcase, 9.35pm
TWO more riveting and bloody instalments of Michael Mann's documentary series about the work of war photographers. In the first, French photographer Veronique de Viguerie heads to South Sudan in search of the bloodthirsty madman, Joseph Kony, and his Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). She joins up with the Arrow Boys, a ragtag group of farmers fighting back against the LRA with bows and arrows and antique rifles, and heads out into the bush. Along the way she meets several children who managed to escape from the LRA, who tell her of the tortures they endured and the atrocities Kony forced them to commit. The other documentary follows American photographer Eros Hoagland into the maze-like slums of Rio de Janeiro, where drug gangs burn their enemies alive and use snipers and hand grenades in their war on the paramilitary police. With the football World Cup headed to Rio next year, the official homicide rate has fallen - though this seems to be because the police and army have taken to burning and burying bodies. The documentaries are shocking, but provide great insight into the stories and the work of the photographers.

Tonight, some dangerous-looking quad-bike action will put hearts in mouths, and there's barely time to recover before Alana's sister, Chickadee, is rushed to hospital in what looks like premature labour.
