TV tonight: Killing Eve’s toxic but tantalising final season | Television & radio

Killing Eve

9.15pm, BBC One

Eve (Sandra Oh) is zipping around on a motorbike and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is leading a church choir as we rejoin them for the fourth and final season of the killer series. Carolyn, (Fiona Shaw) meanwhile, is bored stiff in her new embassy role. All of them are still very much focused on The Twelve. While it’s massively dropped off since that brilliant first season, fans are desperate to see how things end for Eve and Villanelle’s oh-so toxic but tantalising relationship. Hollie Richardson

Celebrity Mastermind

6.30pm, BBC One

There is a fairly high camp quotient on the austere quiz this week with contestants including beloved Eurotrash narrator Maria McErlane and celebrated drag queen The Vivienne. Debonair host Clive Myrie even takes time out between rounds to explore why drag is currently having such a moment in pop culture. Graeme Virtue

The Wall Versus Celebrities

7pm, BBC One

“Polar opposites” Ellie Taylor and Shaparak Khorsandi team up to tackle Danny Dyer’s ball game-cum-general knowledge quiz. Challenges include distinguishing Boyzone from Westlife and identifying meals made from animal genitals. You may be able to guess which they fare better with. Alexi Duggins

The National Comedy Awards for Stand Up to Cancer

9pm, Channel 4

Award nights might not seem relevant in 2022 (the film industry boycotted this year’s Golden Globes), but this one is in aid of charity – with a few promised laughs from a room full of comedians. Tom Allen hosts, with nominees including Sarah Millican, Mo Gilligan and Aisling Bea. HR

Paul Sinha’s TV Showdown

9.40pm, ITV

A raucous performance on RuPaul’s Drag Race, a naughty moment on Catchphrase, and Esther Rantzen pulling a taxidermy cat out of a black bin bag on That’s Life! – these are just some of the clips providing the questions on tonight’s telly trivia show. HR

Mariah Carey at the BBC

10.35pm, BBC Two

She owns Christmas and she doesn’t do stairs, but behind the legend of Mariah lies 30 years of hits. Here are some of her best Beeb performances, charting the evolution of a superstar. For every tiresome ballad (“Can’t liiiiiive”) there’s a banger such as Shake It Off from the golden age of mid-00s Mimi that shows off her versatility. Hannah Verdier

Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim’s classic musical is here given a wonderful, respectful reworking by Steven Spielberg. Despite some visual callbacks to Robert Wise’s 1961 version, his 1957 New York is a darker, scuzzier place – the territorial rumbles between the Sharks and Jets play out in an urban landscape of demolition and decay, reinforcing the hollowness of their small victories. Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler, playing Tony and Maria – the Romeo and Juliet of this cross-cultural romance – make for a sweet couple but are upstaged by a fiery, forceful Ariana DeBose as Anita (particularly in a kinetic take on America) and Mike Faist as sinewy gang leader Riff.
