His TV show in the Netherlands, Peter Powers' Payback, a 10-part series, was broadcast in early 2009.[1]

On 2 June 2012, he appeared on an episode of "Australia's Funniest Home Videos" (themed "Everything's Cool"), where he hypnotised three audience members, first convincing them their dancing was "cool", then that their pants were down around their ankles.

In October 2015, the six-part series Mesmerised, fronted by Powers, began airing on Channel Seven in Australia.[2] It was promptly pulled from air after one episode.
