TV Tonight: Kate Garraway Takes On Piers Morgan’s Life Stories | Television

The Life Stories of Kate Garraway

9 p.m., TVI

Taking over from Piers Morgan for the in-depth and meaningful talk series, the much more affable Kate Garraway is sure to inspire cooler times with her 60-minute celebrity interviews. First up, Charlotte Church – the child prodigy and singing sensation, who has lived in the spotlight of fame since she was just 11 years old. Also in the hot seat of this series: Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain and former footballer John Barnes. Hollie Richardson

Go vegetarian and vegan with Matt Tebbutt

7 p.m., Channel 5

This admirably easy-to-follow series — recorded before Tebbutt’s recent bout with appendicitis — demonstrates that “living your life on vegetables” doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor. Tonight, the friendly host proselytizes for the palate-invigorating effects of homemade chili oil, before extolling the virtues of humble butternut squash. Graeme Virtue

The dragon’s lair

8 p.m., BBC One

It’s game night for the nation’s favorite panel of entrepreneurs. Businesses featured include a pirate-themed escape room, a bouncy ball that creates music as you play with it, and, for no apparent reason, an oral cosmetics business. No one told program creators not to mess with dental hygiene? Alexis Duggins

The Forbidden Art of Mary Beard

9 p.m., BBC 2

When a wealthy banker made a generous donation of sculptures to the British Museum in 1865, it created an awkward moment – it was a collection of phallic votive statues, politely accepted, but never put on public display. In her new two-parter, classicist Beard rediscovers such taboos in the art world, beginning with the theme of “vile bodies” (watch out for living vomit). TIME

The apprentice

9 p.m., BBC One

The increasingly tired but still fun and guilty business schadenfreude-fest continues to make faces of its attendees. Tonight, a creative task of the kind that can be counted on to elicit sneers: suitors must develop, brand, and market a video game. Spot the misadventures and contempt of Lord Sugar. Phil Harrison

And just like that…

9 p.m., Sky Comedy

And just like that, it’s the end of a frenzy that had Sex and the City fans cringe. In fairness, most fans warmed to the show as it got better (two words: sex in the kitchen). Big’s shock death reset everything in the opener, and the show saw Carrie go through heartbreak – is closure even possible for this finale? TIME
