Babylon

This police-based comedy drama continues tonight, once again mixing thrills and drama with some razor sharp comic lines. This week there's a bomb threat. The audience ratings for the series hasn't been great (in TV terms), which is a shame. Not a surprise though perhaps - it's on at 10pm, competing with multiple other comedy shows. We still don't understand why schedulers think that's a good thing to do. Channel 4, 10pm. Guide

Also: the final Drifters; Russell Howard's Good News; Puppy Love; and repeats including Gavin & Stacey. Schedule
