Hot on the box

2010-05-17 00:00

A COMEDY about relationships is set to air on SABC3 on Wednesdays from tonight. Rules of Engagement (7.30 pm) looks at the sometimes confusing phases of relationships through the eyes of a recently engaged couple, Adam and Jennifer, a jaded married pair, Jeff and Audrey, and single guy on the prowl, Russell (David Spade).

They soon find out, no matter what stage of life they’re in, that when it comes to love connections, life is full of twists and turns, conflicting needs and varying points of view.

Other highlights this week:


• 50/50 — SABC2, 7.30 pm: Tonight’s episode examines the demand for rhino horn, which is driven by a combination of poverty, the existence of a lucrative black market in South East Asia and sophisticated channels to ship the cargo out of South Africa. In this showing, the team meets a game farmer who believes the most effective way of reducing poaching is to open up legal trade from naturally harvested horns and thereby force the price of rhino horn on the black market down.


• The Oprah Winfrey Show — SABC3, 5.35 pm: Oprah talks to former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson about his childhood in Brooklyn, the bullying that made him a fighter and his training under the legendary Cus D’Amato that made him a champion.
