The Golden Girls, 3pm, Seven

Is Seven se­ri­ous? The Golden Girls ? Well, I sup­pose it’s a notch above On the Buses and Ge­orge & Mil­dred , both of which the net­work ex­humed and dusted off re­cently. This episode, from the first sea­son of TGG ( 1985), con­cerns the de­sire of that Si­cil­ian sweet­heart Sophia ( Estelle Getty) to go home with a man she was once en­gaged to. Nat­u­rally, the girls de­cide to go bowl­ing to solve the ar­gu­ment about whether she should leave them, with a win­ner- takes- all prize pool.

Star Trek: The Next Gen­er­a­tion, 6.30pm, SciFi

I, Borg is one of the all- time great episodes, in which a sin­gu­lar Borg drone is res­cued and re­vived by the well- mean­ing Dr Crusher.

I’m a Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! 9.30pm, Ten

If you’re get­ting a feel­ing of deja vu while read­ing this, do not ad­just your brain. Yes, it has all been on be­fore. This sixth sea­son of I’ma Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! first aired in Bri­tain in 2006 and was shown here on pay- TV chan­nel UKTV last De­cem­ber. For many, that will make the an­tics of the likes of Ja­son Dono­van, pic­tured, David Gest ( ex- hus­band of Liza Minnelli); and jour­nal­ist Lauren Booth ( half- sis­ter of for­mer Bri­tish first lady Cherie Blair) seem very old hat in­deed as they strive to sur­vive in the wild and are tor­tured by some of Queens­land’s creepi­est beast­ies. Even if hu­mil­i­ated celebri­ties aren’t your cup of camp­fire cof­fee, there’s al­ways the beauty of Queens­land to revel in.
