Catch up TV Guide: from Party Down to Footballers' Wives

7 October 2011 4:08 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

TV: Party Down

Despite losing Jane Lynch to Glee after season one, Party Down returned for a second, final series (currently on Virgin's On Demand), with Jennifer Coolidge filling her shoes. It's a deliciously deadpan sitcom about a bunch of creatives working catering jobs to make ends meet, and it may have been unceremoniously cancelled, but it's well worth watching, if only to get outraged about that fact.

Virgin On Demand

TV: X Factor USA

The UK version's live shows begin tonight, with a two-and-a-half-hour run through 16 performances. Meanwhile, the Us version has been ticking over on ITV2; if you need more crying, singing, crying, drama and crying, it's all here.

Former EastEnders star Zöe Lucker has revealed that she was happy with the surprising circumstances surrounding her character Vanessa Gold's departure from the soap.

Lucker has now insisted that Eddie's decision was the right one due to the way Vanessa had plotted against him with Michael earlier this year. She told BBC Three's EastEnders: The New Moons: "Eddie did the right thing in leaving Vanessa, because he can't trust (more) »
