The Week The Landlords Moved In (BBC1, 9pm) The Beeb offers landlords the chance to look great by getting them to spend a week living in their long-suffering tenants’ shabby homes so they can experience all that’s wrong with them before theatrically putting everything right.

Chance with Hugh Laurie

EastEnders (BBC1, 7.30pm) As if Albert Square’s pervasive dreariness wasn’t bad enough already, they’ve brought back Robbie Fowler to save the day. Good luck with that. A thrilling development as Dean Gaffney’s clapped-out character returns to take up his high-flying job as the market’s new part-time enforcement officer. Brilliant.

Eat Well For Less

By The TV Grump @TheTVGrump

Formulaic television is big business now. Nothing is cheaper and easier to churn out than programmes where essentially the same thing happens, day in day out, week in and week out.

Come Dine With Me, Four In A Bed, A Place In The Sun, Flog It, Bargain Hunt. The list is almost endless. And what do they all have in common ? Viewers love them. They're loyal to them. They can't get enough of them.

Sean Bean in Broken

By Andy Lloyd @ScarfmanAndy

Jimmy McGovern's BBC1 sociopolitical drama Broken is unequivocally the best thing on TV right now. This week was the fourth instalment and its brilliance remains ever strong. It is brilliantly written and acted and has truly secured actor Sean Bean's status as being a living national treasure.

Ackley Bridge

Ackley Bridge (Channel 4, 8pm) Week two of TV’s weird and unwonderful school for scandal… a kind of Waterloo Road without the laughs but with racism. Headmistress Mandy (Jo Joyner) is less than thrilled after her PE teacher husband punched a problem pupil in the face. The rest of the kids seem to be obsessed with hijabs. Is this anything like life at a real school?

The Voice Kids

Having failed miserably to discover a grown-up star, TV’s epically pointless The Voice has moved on to not discovering a child star. No one knows why.

Welcome to The Voice Kids, your golden opportunity to endure youthful show-offs singing tunelessly shortly before they experience the heartbreak of devastating rejection. Brilliant. That’s entertainment. Or is it a form of cruelty? You decide.

After last week’s poorly-staged police shooting of vulnerable teenager, Father Michael (Sean Bean) continues to seethe over the injustice of it all. Oh, and just to cheer things up, the troubled priest confronts the teacher who abused him when he was a kid.
