A low-key, but potentially fun day of sport on the free-to-air channels. First off breakaway non-league heroes Afc Wimbledon take on Stevenage (12.35pm, ITV1) who – cruelly for curious neutrals hoping for a grudge match – knocked out Wimbledon's franchised forebears Mk Dons on penalties in the previous round. Then Sue Barker is at the O2 for the semis of the Atp world finals (2pm, BBC »

The Beeb's decent teen strand continues its run of smart kids' shows with online soap The Cut (now in offline mode) featuring a guest appearance from DJ Ironik (ask your kids).

The Office: An American Workplace

Another winning double bill of the Us adaptation of the sitcom. In the first episode, the return of laconic Hr rep Toby Flenderson leads to Michael (Steve Carell) trying to frame Toby – his bête noire – for possessing weed. Which is, unbeknown to Michael, a bag of caprese salad. The second episode sees Michael taking pitches for his budget surplus. »

Iconic comedian David Cros tells us all about his upcoming IFC series that finds Todd Margaret destroying London one bad life choice at a time
David Cross has a strange reputation. Some consider him abrasive and too hyper-intelligent for his own good. Even he acknowledges that he can be a supreme dick on the not-so-rare occasion. A man with no patience for the dulling of American, he's really not a bad guy at heart. He's a comedian after all. And very approachable when not being scrutinized about some of his more lofty career choices such as Alvin and the Chipmunks. Sometimes, people have a problem with his attitude simply because he never hides under a fake façade. He's just a dude, and that authentic average Joe enthusiasm sometimes throws people for a loop.
Approach David Cross as an admirer and a fan, he's as cordial and polite as any »
