Londonist Stays In


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


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...).


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
