The channel that doesn’t do list shows, there, doing a list show. But it depends what they’re about and this should be entertaining enough with the various participants all turning up to reminisce and the fact that at least some of them are among the funniest shows ever made, and the bonus that The Mad Bad Ad Show won’t be included. And then at eleven, we’re promised a full hour-long episode of the winner followed by two documentaries about it. We dunno what it is, but we can certainly have a guess, because there’s been one really big Channel Four comedy that’s surprisingly not been in this season so far, featured an hour-long episode and has been the subject of two documentaries which you’ll assume would be repeats given it’s midnight, so… “Ted! Ted! You’re not going to believe this! Clint Eastwood’s been convicted for a crime he didn’t commit… oh wait, it’s a film.” Er, unless it’s The Inbetweeners, of course.
Creamguide's Pick of the Day
Iain Banks – Raw Spirit
Tuesday, 22.00, BBC2
Tragically this final ever interview with one of the most influential and popular authors of the last few decades, recorded a few weeks ago, now has to be screened posthumously. Viewers in Scotland will have seen it last week and now the rest of the UK gets the chance, albeit in slightly truncated form.
