TANYA'S BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
All the TV that's mad, bad, or just a little bit evil for Tuesday. Our Tiny Tanya Turner ratings show just how low each show goes – the more Tanyas a show scores, the more mental it is.
» HUNDRED! Charmed, LivingTV, 4.15pm
LivingTV continues its seemingly endless stream of Charmed repeats with the 100th episode - notable generally for being The One In Which Cole Gets Vanquished For Good - No, Really, We're Absolutely Positive This Time, Julian McMahon Was Desperate To Get Off This Sinking Ship. Anyway, if we're discussing the actual plot of the episode, Cole casts a spell to ensure that Paige never meets her sisters to reform the Charmed Ones after Prue's death, but Paige's Cold Of Contrivance saves the day. Couldn't he have gone back just a few more weeks and stopped Prue from dying at all? We miss Shannen Doherty these days.
» BLUNDERED! The Smoking Room, BBC Two, 10.00pm
We still come across a lot of people who don't find this funny at all, but we think it's rather brilliant, so we're going to carry on recommending it regardless. This week's set-up is fairly contrived (no one can find a working lighter), but it's all played out with such charm by a generally excellent cast that it's not too hard to go along with it. Just beware the after-show nicotine cravings.
» PLUNDERED! The Sex Inspectors, Channel 4, 11.05pm
There seem to be an awful lot of shows like this around, but what right-thinking person passes up the opportunity to look through the grubby window of the window of other people's sexual problems? It's a bit like Play School for grown-ups, when you think about it like that. Except perhaps not. Keep a pen and paper handy, just in case any useful tips are revealed.
