SATELLITE PICK OF THE DAY.

Live Cup Football

Sky Sports 1, 7.00pm

As Carling Cup holders, Spurs are hopeful of retaining the trophy this season.

Tonight, they will be aiming for a place in the last four by turning in a good game against fellow Londoners Watford.

The Tottenham turnaround has given Spurs fans renewed faith in their chances, as new manager Harry "Houdini" Redknapp has given a talented bunch of players new life.

As they take on lower league opposition here, they must be looking for a good away win.

We Own The Night

Sky Movies Premiere, 8.00pm

THIS excellent all-star thriller has Eva Mendez, Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg in fine form.

Phoenix plays a club manager who gets involved with the cops when they try to bring down a dangerous drug dealer.

He has to become an informant in the police action to bring the pusher down, but gets into some serious complications as he tries to stay in the middle and stay alive.

Office Space

Sky Movies Modern Greats, 6.30pm

ONE of the most over-looked comedies of recent times, this is the kind of movie that your street cred and pop culture awareness will thrive upon.

Written and directed by Beavis & Butthead and King Of The Hill creator Mike Judge, this is a fantastic and very funny look at the average working place - and is like a great precursor to our own The Office.

Jennifer Aniston and Ron Livingston (Berger from Sex And The City) star as office workers who rebel against their evil boss.

But the best thing about this comedy is Gary Cole, who makes David Brent seem an angel.

Travels With Vasari

BBC Four, 9.00pm

IN this second episode, we discover paintings documented by Giorgio Vasari in his book Lives Of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors And Architects.

This 16th century writer believed the artists of his time had attained perfection in their work, surpassing anything created in Ancient Greece or Rome.

We look at the three "titans" of the era - Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Michelangelo - and explore their great works, including The Last Supper, The Mona Lisa and the Sistine Chapel.

Beehive

E4,10.30pm

THIS new all-girl sketch show is written and performed by Alice Lowe, Sarah Kendall, Barunka O'Shaughnessy and Clare Thomson.

It's a nutsy world of oddball characters and peculiar takes on celebrity.

Tonight kicks off with the girls as four Russell Brands, busking for cash and fighting over chicken in a bin.

Others sketches feature the rudest air hostesses in the skies, Sarah Kendall re-enacting her favourite film scene, and Sex And The City getting a raunchy re-make.
