Pre­miere Movies ( Fox­tel), 6.45pm

CBGB is the movie equiv­a­lent of a hot model wear­ing a Mo­tor­head T- shirt – looks good but com­pletely misses the point. Alan Rick­man is decades too old to play bar owner Hilly Kristal and the film comes off like one long pro­ces­sion of fa­mous band looka­likes turn­ing up to mime along to hit records. Punk was raw and en­er­getic with an in­cred­i­ble DIY ethos. This doesn’t cap­ture it.

Com­edy Chan­nel ( Fox­tel), 8.30pm

You get the im­pres­sion Ilana Glazer and Abbi Ja­cob­son ( far right with Glazer) start writ­ing each episode with ab­so­lutely no idea where it’s go­ing to end up. That may be why in this episode, Abbi gets her pri­vates waxed, misses her chance to lead a class at the gym be­cause of a woman pre­tend­ing to be go­ing through chemo, she snorts co­caine at a char­ity event then she and Ilana hook up with two DJs who keep man­u­fac­tur­ing the pre­con­di­tions for group sex. It’s all over the shop.
