Schedule Watch: September 14

On this weekend’s Sunday (TVNZ 1, 7.30): All Blacks captain Richie McCaw hit rock bottom in 2007 after losing the Rugby World Cup. Facing self-doubt, vulnerabilities and learning how to perform under pressure, Richie credits Dr Ceri Evans with teaching him the tools he needed to change his mindset. Ceri shows us all how we can not just survive, but thrive in our own worlds of stress and pressure. Also: intrepid adventurer George Kourounis on his breathtaking but dangerous adventure to the top of a mammoth piece of ice that’s thought to be at least 10,000 years old; and musician Teeks takes us to his Hokianga home to meet his whānau and into the music studio.

Appearing on this week’s Real Time With Bill Maher (SoHo/SoHo2, various times) are:

  • Guests: filmmaker Michael Moore and New York Times staff editor and op-ed writer Bari Weissis (author of the new book “How to Fight Anti-Semitism”)
  • Panellists: Krystal Ball, author of “Reversing the Apocalypse: Hijacking the Democratic Party to Save the World”; Michael Steele, former chair of the Republican National Committee; and political strategist Fernand Amandi.

On Sunday’s 60 Minutes (Prime, 10.30): Anderson Cooper profiles Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, and Jon Wertheim reports on allegations of bribery and money laundering among top Maltese officials.
