THE GRAHAM NORTON SHOW BBC1, 10.35pm A STAPLE of Friday nights, this is still the best place to go for an entertaining chat show - sorry Jonathan Ross, but Graham wins the crown.
Often flexing his comedian muscles, he always manages to unite his diverse guests into a banter-filled conversation on the red sofa.
Tonight, he welcomes triple Oscar-nominated Laura Linney, who is returning to the London stage in the critically acclaimed My Name Is Lucy Barton. Another triple Oscar nominee, Irish actor Saoirse Ronan, is also on the couch to talk about playing the title role in Mary Queen Of Scots, released in UK cinemas today.

GRANTCHESTER STV, 9pm OUR nice young vicar Sidney can be a bit of a bad boy sometimes. That's why we love him.
With Violet gone, he loses himself in a bottle of whiskey, waking on the vicarage couch after a seriously heavy drinking session. The ever grumpy Mrs C (Tessa Peake-Jones) is not impressed.
"Time we had a full and frank discussion. You look done in," she tells Sidney (James Norton).
But of course there are bigger fish to fry. Back at the station, Geordie (Robson Green) is called to a young woman in a bad way. She wants to see Sidney, but by the time the pair return, she's dead with a curious puncture wound on her neck.
Sidney had spoken to her the night before, but barely remembers anything about their conversation. She offered him a light, he knows that much.
As Geordie and Sidney investigate, heading into the murky world of prostitution and poverty, Sidney begins to have flashbacks.
Hitting the threeway THE GRAND TOUR AMAZON PRIME WHOEVER could have imagined that three middle-aged men talking endlessly about cars would still be such a big hit? And yet here we are. Ditched from the BBC and happily settled in their new home at Amazon, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May can still pull in the ratings.
Episodes will be released weekly in more than 200 countries and territories across the globe.
And with a huge budget, there's no shortage of action or worldwide travel to keep things entertaining.
Pick of For this third series, the trio have travelled through tricky terrains in Colombia, Mongolia, China, Detroit and Stansted Airport, while their giant studio tent remains back home in 'Jeremy's garden' in the Cotswolds.
day In a tease montage of what to expect over the series, we see everything from exploding helicopters and cars screeching around race tracks, to Jeremy dressed as a French policeman and an inquisitive bear.
Mostly of course, this is boys with toys, all banter, rivalry and idiocy - and it's thoroughly the entertaining. In the first episode, the gang make a pilgrimage to Detroit to drive three highly tuned muscle cars and are horrified to find that the oncegreat motor city is a shadow of its former self.
They decide to stage a drag race on the deserted streets and perform a noise test in an old theatre.
Later on there's a battle between good and evil at a local airfield.
Noisy, fun and stupid, this is another lap of honour for the petrol heads.
