Grand De­signs Abroad, 6.05pm, ABC1 This ex­cel­lent and much- loved Bri­tish pro­gram about house de­sign pulls up stumps and heads over­seas. In tonight’s de­but, we’re in Malaga, Spain. Ev­ery year, 100,000 Brits buy prop­erty in Spain, host Kevin McCloud, pic­tured, tells us. Most of th­ese peo­ple end up with de­vel­oper- built homes, but if you want to build the house of your dreams and re­ally make a state­ment, you’ve got to look else­where. Ah, Kevin, into your hands we com­mend our build­ing plans. Bat­tlestar Galac­tica, 9.30pm, TenHD One of the finest US dra­mas of re­cent years ( Time mag­a­zine says so too) doesn’t rate well enough to make it in this slot on Ten’s stan­dard chan­nel, but Medium does? That’s wrong. Al­though, come to think of it, we’re prob­a­bly bet­ter off not be­ing able to see Al­li­son Dubois’s vi­sions in high def­i­ni­tion. Amer­i­can Dad, 10.50pm, Seven The world con­tin­ues to be di­vided into those who love the car­toons of Seth McFar­lane and those who are be­yond mys­ti­fied that any­one is amused by them. ( OK, there’s prob­a­bly a third cat­e­gory of peo­ple who have never heard of McFar­lane or Fam­ily Guy , but let’s not com­pli­cate things.) There’s no doubt that Amer­i­can Dad ’ s char­ac­ters are not as well de­vel­oped as those of Fam­ily Guy and it isn’t as funny as a re­sult, but it is still quite chuck­le­some, such as in this episode where Stan dis­cov­ers how many men Francine slept with be­fore they were mar­ried.
