1/ X-Factor: The Live Finals

When?
ITV1, Saturday 7.30pm

Why should I watch it?
It's possibly the fiestiest live final we've seen so far from the pop-star producing reality TV show, that appears to be taking over the weekend. It's been reported that, due to his unprecedented success in television producing, Simon Cowell now thinks it's about time that he run for PM... that's not true, but he is on the brink of taking over the world. MOO HA HA HA. The blend of cat fights, politically incorrect jibes, x-rated wardrobe and Cheryl Cole's stroppy little pout is genius Cowell, well done.

Highlights:
Infamous 'fag hag' Danni Minogue, outing Danyl after his blinding rendition of And I am telling you, I'm not going: "And if we're to believe what we read in the papers, there was no need to change the gender reference in the song." Ouch. There goes all her new found popularity.

Four hot ex-pole dancers singing Addicted to Love in black leather knickers, otherwise known as Kandy Rain.

Cheryl and Simon's bitch fight over Kandy Rain's outfits: were they slutty or just right? Cheryl looks so cute when she's angry. Aww.

2/ Flash Forward

When?
FIVE, Monday 9pm

Why should I watch it?
It's been hailed (by a select and complimentary few) as the new Lost. Whether that's because you haven't got the foggiest what's going on for about 95 percent of the time, or because it's genuinely brilliant, we'll have to see.It's another sci-fi drama loosely based on the novel written by mental Canadian, Robert J. Sawyer.

It's a fictional futuristic 2009 and CERN is messing about with the Large Hadron Collider again. An experiment goes awry with peculiar consequences; everyone sees themselves 6 months into the future... wow. This isn't as cool as it sounds. People start going a bit insane, seeing their future and all, and Joseph Fiennes is on the case, to sort it out. A big question posed in the first two episodes presents a conundrum; what happens if you didn't get a vision? Uh oh.

3/ Michale McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow

When?
BBC 1, Saturday 9.30pm

Why should I watch it?
Comedians. You either love them or hate them. Michael McIntyre appears to be the comedian 'in vogue' at the moment, and his comedy roadshow has become a staple of the television diet. Even if you think McIntyre sounds like an excitable barking puppy with a cold, there are other plenty of funny men and women to wet your humourous appetite. Last week he travelled to the Manchester Apollo (cue Northern jokes) and invited Jason Manford (responsible for the reasonably funny Walk on the Wild Side), plus John Bishop, Sarah Millican and Mick Ferry. Enjoy the best of British comedy.
