Bringing you the most Londony shows on TV over the coming week.

Monday

University Challenge (BBC2, 20.00-20.30) London School of Economics versus University of Manchester versus Jeremy Paxman.

Million Dollar Traders (BBC2, 21.00-22.00) Curiously timed show in which everyday people attempt to manage hedge funds and acquire the skills of a City trader (emptying desk draws, packing boxes, canceling gym memberships...).

Tuesday

Derren Brown: Evening of Wonders (C4, 22.00-23.40) From the Garrick Theatre. We want to hate Derren Brown, but he's so compelling. Like he has some kind of spooky suggestive powers or something.

Wednesday

Southend United Vs Chelsea (ITV2, 20.00-22.10) FA Cup, Third Round replay. Can the Blues overcome the mighty Shrimpers? Yes.

The City Uncovered (BBC2, 21.00-22.00), Evan Davis on why the banking system went so horribly wrong.

Thursday

Paul Burrell: What Really Happened? and In his Own Words (C4, 22.00-00.10) Daily Express readers, set your videos for over two hours of Butlerfest.

Friday

Live at the Apollo (BBC1, 10.35-11.20) Russell Howard and Jo Brand raise a few titters at the Hammersmith venue. Cakes may be mentioned.

Saturday

Demons (ITV1, 19.40-20.40) Dick van Dyke's chim-chumminy mockney accent is finally repaid with interest as Philip Glenister talks Yank as hammily as a Grange Hill spam sandwich. Oh, and there's some monster hunting and stuff.
