The Jonathan Ross Show
A rare boon for Rossy, who so often seems to be beaten to the A-listers by Graham Norton: this week he’s managed to reunite the Spice Girls! Well, four of them – Victoria Beckham is missing from the sofa as well as the arena tour the group have just announced. Perhaps they could convince Kylie Minogue, performing here alongside Jack Savoretti, to join in her stead? Playing very much second fiddle to Baby, Scary, Ginger and Sporty is John Bishop, who will be discussing his latest standup DVD and recent UKTV series. Gwilym Mumford
10.30am, Sky News
Seeking to be a snappier alternative to Newsround is this weekly pairing between Sky News and Sky Kids. FYI runs at an attention-holding 15 minutes and promises to answer questions children may have about current affairs and politics. It also, in a first for TV, will see junior reporters’ questions put to the prime minister. GM
The X Factor
Fright Night turned into a true horror show last Saturday, with technical problems leading producers to repeat every single performance (yes, really) on Sunday’s show. Here’s hoping the judges, acts and poor, sweet, put-upon Dermot are luckier this week as the live shows reach week four. Hannah J Davies
Egon Schiele: Dangerous Desires
9pm, BBC Two
Iggy Pop is one of the contributors to this doc about an Austrian painter who died 100 years ago, aged just 28, but whose artwork is, as Pop puts it, “dirty and punky”. Considered pornographic in his day, we see how his work speaks eloquently to us about sexuality a century on. David Stubbs
Beck: The Thin Ice
9pm, BBC Four
The Swedish detective series continues with Steinar, clever copper in the guise of a Viking warrior, investigating the murder of a suburban ice-hockey coach. Meanwhile, the newly promoted Beck’s job is now to keep a watching brief on investigations, which he does with patience and canniness. Jonathan Wright
The Damned: Don’t You Wish We Were Dead
10pm, Sky Arts
“There’d be fire engineers, police, dogs, and in the middle there’d be us, throwing water over each other.” Original drummer Rat Scabies there, recalling an average night on the Damned’s 1979 US tour. Film-maker Wes Orshoski tells the story of punk rock’s answer to Tiswas in this larky documentary. Ali Catterall
Mud, 12.15am, Channel 4
Like a latterday Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, 14-year-old Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) like to mess around on the Mississippi – where they discover a boat in a tree and the enigmatic fugitive, Mud (Matthew McConaughey). It’s a rich, intriguing mix of thriller and rite-of-passage movie. Paul Howlett

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading The Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our reporting as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Guardian is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias and not influenced by billionaire owners, politicians or shareholders. No one edits our editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.
