Vicious

Today sees five different comedy TV series come to the end of their runs. In Vicious, things are wrapped up (for now at least) with a big wedding. It's a sign of how far society has come that ITV's prime time sitcom is about two men getting married - this script would perhaps have been handled differently in the 1970s. The arrival of an unexpected guest ensures that things do not go smoothly for Freddie and Stuart though. ITV, 9pm. Guide

Also: It's A Funny Old Week; Episodes; Man Down and My Mad Fat Diary. Repeats include a re-run of Plebs on ITV. Schedule
