TV: What to watch this week


Share This Article:

Switched on

Football on ESPN – ESPN’s coverage is putting much of our established sports shows to shame. With its abundance of ladies, flashy technology and pitch side analysis at half time, ESPN has brought its American Superbowl style over the pond. A point that is only emphasised by the recent Gray/Keys-Gate on Sky, ESPN shows off a woman’s asset to the most – her brains! The presentation is slick, HD and commentary good. It’s all good.

Blue Blood, Sky Atlantic – The only show Sky Atlantic hasn’t been publicising to a ridiculous amount, this slick US precinct drama is one for those who love Law and Order, mixed with a bit of dry American humour. The show is dark at points, but it is riveting stuff.

Switched off

Celebrity Juice, ITV2 – The edgy and risque comedian Keith Lemon has become a bit of marmite character in recent weeks, with the show getting mixed reviews. Whilst Holly Willoughbooby and the ever-cool Fearne Cotton carry the show through week after week, patience is waning when it comes to the grotesque gurning of Avid Merrion/Keith Lemon/Soon-to-be-has-been chap.


Masterchef, BBC – What have they done to this show? First few series were riveting, all about the cookery and one of those organic-feeling shows. We now have more dramatic soundtracks than a Bourne Identity film and the show is becoming more about the hosts than the Jonathon Ross show. REMEMBER: Organic is ALWAYS best!

Soap Dish

Coronation Street – Maria turns up the heat with a potential customer at Underworld, and she falls for the charms of a rich businessman. However, things start to turn nasty as the fellow forces himself on poor Maria, and she yet again suffers fool. Becky confesses to taking the money after the tram crash to pay for their ‘son’, and Dev and Sunita fall out big style with the blonde beauty.

Eastenders  - Roxy and Glenda hatch a plan to catch out Phil, only for him to be one step of the game and suss the girls out well before they put their plan into action. Glenda also causes trouble when she makes the comment ‘All babies look the same’ to Ronnie, whose mind goes into overdrive, as she thinks her guilty secret is about to be outed.

Emmerdale – Cain and Charity continue to spar as she finds the greasy lothario in her new fella’s bed, and things begin to piece together in Jai’s mind. Elsewhere, Jackson and Aaron patch things up, as Aaron says those three little words to his paralysed ex, after failing to ‘perform’ with a different man. Who said Emmerdale was for old people?

Guess who? Our TNS insider dishes the dirt on who's getting up to what this week (...well, almost!)

Which TV super-mum has actually got a nanny by her side, but keeps it on the quiet to save her perfect mum image?

Which glamorous soapstar has made a last minute decision to take months off filming, to the dismay of the show’s bosses?

Which TV beauty is kicking up a fuss at the British weather and has requested to be posted to be in Neighbours in Australia, which would devastate her cult following?
