K-Ville (Five, 10pm)

K-Ville fol­lows the work of of­fi­cers on the beat in New Or­leans, just two years af­ter it was dev­as­tated by Hur­ri­cane Ka­t­rina. The dis­as­ter de­stroyed many of the flood walls that pro­tected the city and left much of it un­in­hab­it­able. An­thony An­der­son and Cole Houser star in the new 11-part po­lice drama as NOPD Of­fi­cers Mar­lin Boulet andTrevor Cobb, who face an un­en­vi­able task; not only do they have to pur­sue the crim­i­nals who seem in­tent on pre­vent­ing the city’s re­cov­ery, but they must also strug­gle to put their own lives back to­gether in the wake of the dis­as­ter. In this first episode, Boulet and Cobb are on the trail of gun­men tar­get­ing fundrais­ing events.

Match of the Day Live: 2010 FIFA World Cup (BBC One, 2.15pm)

Slove­nia and Eng­land meet at the Nel­son Man­dela Bay Sta­dium in Port El­iz­a­beth, along with the goals and talk­ing points in the other 3pm kick-off be­tween USA and Al­ge­ria. Matches in the last 16 against the Group D qual­i­fiers await the top two sides, and Fabio Capello will fully ex­pect Eng­land to progress, as they have done in each World Cup they have at­tended since 1958. The teams have met just once, in a friendly at Wem­b­ley Sta­dium in Septem­ber last year, when goals by Frank Lam­pard and Jer­main De­foe were enough for the hosts to se­cure a 2-1 vic­tory.

Des­per­ate Housewives (Chan­nel 4, 10pm)

John Bar­row­man claims he took the role of evil Pa­trick Lo­gan to prove there was more to him than play­ingTorch­wood’s Cap­tain Jack Hark­ness and ap­pear­ing in Bri­tish light en­ter­tain­ment shows. The jury is still out on whether or not he’s man­aged to ex­or­cise his im­age as an ever-smil­ing singer, dancer and ac­tor - Lo­gan may well be the most de­vi­ous char­ac­ter to have ever stepped onto Wis­te­ria Lane, but Bar­row­man’s shin­ing per­son­al­ity is a dif­fi­cult one to hide. Lo­gan has al­ready shown him­self to be a cad of the worst kind (he killed an el­derly woman the very first time we saw him!)

Come Dine with Me: Wags Spe­cial (Chan­nel 4, 8pm)
