It's a month of laughs and challenges and sparky stuff (luckily, it's more the 'forged in fire' and 'great ideas' sort of thing, rather than big bad fires) on SBS VICELAND's early evening line-up in March. 

The 'World of Entertainment' line-up brings you top-rating shows from across the globe, from Asia's Next Top Model to crazy comedian challenges in Taskmaster Norway.  

Here's what's coming up:

Forged in Fire Latin America

New Series Premiere

Mondays 6.15pm from 1 March

There is no better time to use the phrase 'sparks fly' in the context of a reality show than with the world of Forged in Fire… The battles as world-class bladesmiths recreate historical edged weapons in a cut-throat competition have proved hugely popular since the show debuted in 2015, and in the Latin American version of the original, eight entrants from Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and Spain go to it making bowie knives, the Spear of Destiny, kerambits and more.

Asia's Next Top Model

New Season Premiere

Tuesdays 6.05pm from 2 March

Would you hug a scaly reptile for the sake of your career? Get ready for Asia's Next Top Model series 6 as the competition finds itself in brand new territory in the Land of Smiles – Thailand. Starting off with an energetic selfie catwalk in public, and later a 'Wild Things' photoshoot with some less than cuddly animals, this series' challenges push the model hopefuls to their limits. Cindy Bishop returns as host and Yu Tsai returns as creative director, guiding the girls through their modelling journey. It's also the first time in Top Model history where the top model alumni have been brought back to mentor the new contestants.

VS. Arashi

New Season Premiere

Wednesdays 6.05pm from 2 March

With challenge names such as Gogo Sweeper, Popcorn Hitter and Kicking Sniper, this show is fast and funny, as Arashi's boy band members once again challenge other entertainers and celebrity guests through a series of contests of physical strength, general knowledge and dares.

Taskmaster Norway

New Season Premiere

Thursdays 6.10pm from 4 March

The slightly bad news: The last episode of Taskmaster season 5 airs on Monday 1 March. Nooooo. The good news: If you’ve missed any of the current season that’s aired so far, eps are available at SBS On Demand. Even better news: Taskmaster Norway is arriving to keep the laughs going, with Atle Antonsen in the role of the almighty presenter. In typical style, the first episode sees five of Norway's best comedians try to provoke tears, put on a frozen shirt and fry a waffle in a slightly different way. It does not slow down from there: challenges in following episodes include trying to run on water and making a film to be played backwards. 

Taskmaster: Champion Of Champions

Mondays 8.30pm 8 and 15 March 

And more good news for Taskmaster fans: In the two-part Champion of Champions super-special, past champs go head-to-head. A quintet of comedy goliaths are put to the definitive test to find out just who is the worthiest of them all.

If You Are The One

Fridays 6.05pm from 5 March

Rounding out the weekly parade of early evening entertainment, If You Are The One continues with host Ming Fei overseeing the action as a lone male suitor tries to impress a panel of 24 single women in new episodes of this popular Chinese dating show.
