The Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot.

The Graham Norton Show

10.35pm, BBC One

Dawn French leads the guest list on tonight’s show, ahead of her performance alongside Jennifer Saunders in the upcoming Death on the Nile adaptation. Tick, Tick … Boom! star Andrew Garfield, comedian Rob Beckett, and, Magic Mike himself, Channing Tatum, also join Norton in the studio, while the Australian-British singer Natalie Imbruglia marks her return to music with a performance of her new single Nothing Missing.

Your Garden Made Perfect

8pm, BBC Two

The show that lingers for a bit too long over garden transformations heads to London, where a sloping lawn suggests a pretty obvious solution: terracing. The execution is full of smart ideas, however, as is the revamp of a narrow space outside a Manchester mental health clinic. Jack Seale

Death in Paradise

9pm, BBC One

Reggae musicians sway behind mics, a hooded figure appears, a gun is brandished and a singer ends up with a bullet in the head. So runs the set-up for tonight’s episode of this lighthearted Caribbean crime caper, plunging DI Neville Parker (Ralf Little) into more enjoyably frothy procedural antics. Alexi Duggins

Gogglebox

9pm, Channel 4

Nearly 10 years after viewers wondered what the appeal of watching other people watching telly would be, here comes Gogglebox’s 19th series. The Siddiquis and Dave and Shirley are among the armchair favourites returning. And, from Boris Johnson to the Beijing Winter Olympics, there is plenty to dissect this week. Hannah Verdier

A Discovery of Witches

9pm, Sky Max

In this supernatural caper’s final episode, Matthew is in a bad place (read: being tortured to death by Benjamin). It’s up to Diana to unite various vampires and witches to save him. Amid earnest debate about “daemon DNA”, the cast is still having fun – especially Trevor Eve as the nefarious Gerbert. Henry Wong

Dating No Filter

10pm, Sky Max

Rosie Jones and the hosts of The Receipts podcast help pick apart blind dates. And nobody is impressed by cocky Kyle the skater (“I hope she’s hot, and potentially blonde,” he declares). HR

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (David Blue Garcia, 2022), Netflix
“Try anything and you’re cancelled, bro.” Find out if that threat works on Leatherface in this social media-era reboot of the slasher saga. Ignoring the seven sequels, and beginning 50 years after the events of the 1974 original, it follows Lila (Elsie Fisher, so good in Eighth Grade, here facing terrors of a more visceral nature), her sister Melody (Sarah Yarkin) and other friends. They set up a business in a ghost town in the Lone Star State, only to fall foul of the hitherto dormant killer. So it’s lucky the “final girl” from the first film is still around and tooled up, isn’t it? Simon Wardell
