‘IT is hard on a Friday to find anything that touches Will And Grace (Channel 4, 9pm) for entertainment value.

Worth more than 10% of audience share

The entire concept of Restoration on BBC2 (9pm) is so painfully dull that the best thing would be to put the programme into one of the crumbling piles it features and send for the explosives.

Eyes Down on BBC1 (9om) is a tired formula from the off – the stale bingo hall serves as the hi-de-hi holiday camp.

So Will And Grace it is, and after that Trevor’s World of Sport (BBC1, 9:30).

This show is what British TV can do very well. While not exactly a sitcom, and not a drama, it sits comfortably between the two, reliant of good writing and talented acting for its appeal.

Paul Reynolds and Neil Pearson are perfectly cast as the sports agents – one with a heart the other a psychotic disorder.

Tonight’s episode features footballer’s Robbie Keane and Graeme Le Saux. And as any body who has even seen footballers attempt acting knows, their presence should garner a laugh.’
