7.30pm, Go!

PG. 2009. Hor­ri­ble com­edy that will turn you off go­ing for gro­ceries. Shop­ping mall se­cu­rity guard Kevin James con­stantly an­noys cus­tomers when he’s not stalk­ing the girl in the hair sa­lon. Jokes ar­rive deep frozen and past their use-by date. The sort of es­capist com­edy you want to es­cape from. Kier O’Don­nell. 8.30pm, One

M. 2002. Neo-Nazis de­velop a plan to en­gulf the Su­per­bowl in a nu­clear holo­caust and fin­ger the Rus­sians for the cul­prits thereby trig­ger­ing WWIII. Tom Clancy thriller comes to the screen with a rick­ety plot but, af­ter 9/11, it will res­onate well with view­ers who now sus­pect this could hap­pen. Ben Af­fleck, Mor­gan Free­man. 9pm, Seven, Prime7

PG. 2003. Passed over for a job, re­porter Jim Car­rey com­plains to God, who un­wisely lets him run things for a while, where­upon he shows what a jerk he is by us­ing his pow­ers self­ishly (mak­ing his girl­friend’s breasts big­ger). It’s fun for a while but it soon palls and Car­rey be­comes ir­ri­tat­ing. Mor­gan Free­man. 9pm, Ten, Ten SC

PG. 2009. There may have been a good rea­son for re­mak­ing (or ‘‘reimag­in­ing’’) the 1980 ver­sion Fame but it’s not ap­par­ent on screen. Once again we fol­low a bunch of kids go­ing through a per­for­mance school from their fresh­man year to grad­u­a­tion – but it rather re­sem­bles a se­ries of videos strung to­gether with some di­a­logue. Kelsey Gram­mar, Bebe Neuwirth.

Don Rick­les and ac­tress Teri Hatcher at 209’s TV Land Awards cer­e­mony.
