Big Brother: Friday Night Live, 7.30pm, Ten I have a friend, an articulate, intelligent and discriminating middleaged man, who says the problem with Big Brother this year is not that the housemates are self- conscious twaddle merchants of the highest order ( he says this lot are the best ever), but that everyone is disappointed not to be seeing, um, more of the housemates in the Uncut version, available late at night in previous years. My friend says that being naked on national television is a necessary humbler, a reducer of masks and so on, without which things can never be truly honest. True or not, Friday Night Live was the highest rated Big Brother outing of last week, but it came in at 49 in the top 100 shows nationally. Hardly a ratings winner. Could time be running out for Big Brother ? Sex, Censorship and the Silver Screen, 8.30pm, Ovation In one of those spooky coincidences where the media competes with itself, this series was released here on DVD in June by VH1. So if your subscription to pay TV gives you the Ovation channel, you can see it without forking out $ 39.95 for the privilege. Nominally hosted by Raquel Welch, the series explores the 100- year evolution of sexuality and censorship in motion pictures. Across the six parts of the series, you’ll also hear narration by luminaries including Billy Zane, Sally Field, Harrison Ford, Melanie Griffith and Patrick Stewart. Also, see excerpts from film classics such as The Graduate , Bonnie and Clyde and Basic Instinct , featuring Sharon Stone, pictured.
