TANYA'S BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
All the TV that's mad, bad, or just a little bit evil for Friday. Our Tiny Tanya Turner ratings show just how low each show goes – the more Tanyas a show scores, the more mental it is.
» V. GOOD! Same Bridget, Brand New Diary, ITV1, 10.00pm
Hurrah! Bridget's back, and so are the big pants. Just in case there are a few people living under a stone in Norfolk who aren't aware that Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is out now at a cinema near you, this well-timed featurette contains interviews with the stars (Renee Zellweger! Hugh Grant! Colin Firth! Sally Phillips!) and some highlights from the movie. It won't win any awards for groundbreaking television, but if you're the sort of person that likes to get to the flicks early to watch the trailers, this could be for you.
» V. V. GOOD! Peep Show, Channel 4, 10.00pm
Just when you thought the demise of Green Wing was going to leave a gaping hole in your Friday night, the best new show of last year returns with a new series. Robert Webb (whom we plan to marry, somehow) and David Mitchell return as Jeremy and Mark, two co-dependent and hopeless flatmates with aspirations wildly beyond their abilities. Sophie and Toni the love interests are back, but how will the dynamics change now that Jeremy has a beautiful American girlfriend? Not much, we'll wager, because the chances are Jeremy won't be able to hang onto her for long. Cancel your plans, shut the curtains and unplug the phone.
» NOT V. GOOD! Posh Swap, five, 10.00pm
The "swap" school of television gets stretched to breaking point as Linda Robson and James Hewitt try to learn how to talk posh and common, respectively. Boring! Watch Peep Show instead.
