Through The Keyhole

Television - particularly ITV - is returning to old formats to help guarantee ratings. Harry Hill is bringing back Stars In Their Eyes later, and a bunch of comedians are due to deliver a modern version of Sunday Night At The London Palladium soon. The key to success seems to be putting a twist on the old format; that's very evident in this new version of the property-based quiz. This modern incarnation is basically a sketch vehicle for Keith Lemon - with over 4m viewers last series, it's a winning move. ITV, 9:25pm. Guide

Also: Corporal Jones is low on meat in Dad's Army. Schedule
