House of Fools BBC2, 10pm
In the unlikely event Vic and Bob turn up to do your washing up, it’s not a great idea to let them in given the mess they make of their own kitchen chores in the first of a new series. Though a visual gag about broken mugs is literally smashing, Bob’s birds and bees chat with his son lurches into plain annoying. That’s the thing with House of Fools: you have to sift through a lot of mildly amusing haystacks to find a comedy needle, and that includes a musical interlude halfway through that might leave some opting to do their own washing up.
