Week of Monday, June 12 to Sunday, June 18
Whether you plan to have a lazy evening in front of the telly or want to catch up after a cheeky night out, Digital Spy has your TV viewing schedule covered every week.
Here are all the shows that you absolutely have to watch over the next seven days:
1. Pitch Battle – Saturday at 7.30pm on BBC One
BBC One is still looking for its next big Saturday night hit. Let It Shine was a modest success, and now they're bringing back Mel Giedroyc (sans Sue) to host a show about show choirs, a good eight years after Glee first came along. Gareth Malone and Kelis, of all people, are among the judges of the next potential big talent contest.
2. The Met: Policing London – Tuesday at 9pm on BBC One
If you haven't caught any of the second series of this brilliant documentary series yet, make sure you do, as it's thrilling television. Whether you live in London or not, it's a fascinating look at the way in which such a huge force tackles the sheer volume of crimes being committed. These kind of documentaries are normally captivating, but this takes it to a whole other level.
3. First Dates USA – Thursday at 10pm on E4
We can't get enough of the Channel 4 dating series, and now the Yanks are getting in on the act. So, it's essentially the exact same show, but with Drew Barrymore as the narrator. We're sold. Too bad Fred's not there, though.
4. Wife Swap: Brexit Special – Thursday at 9pm on Channel 4
We're surprised it's taken this long for such an incredible idea to make our screens, but here we go. You remember how Wife Swap works – couples with completely different views or lives swap houses for a week. And so, why not do it with the big topic that divides us all right now? Here, UKIP campaigner Pauline swaps with Green Party councillor Kat. Expect tears, arguments and moments of poignance.
5. A League of Their Own: Road Trip 2.0 – Monday at 9pm on Sky1
The first episodes of this second series of the Sky1 game show sneaked up on on Saturday, so you might want to catch that before its regular Monday night slot begins this week. The boys (James Corden, Jack Whitehall, Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff) are back in the States, embarking on another banter-filled road trip from hell.
6. The Real Full Monty – Thursday at 8.30pm on ITV
20 years after The Full Monty was a huge hit at the cinema, a bunch of male celebs join up to recreate the famous striptease to raise awareness of men's health. A load of naughty fun and for a good cause. And it's got a great cast, from McFly's Harry Judd, Alexander Armstrong, Diversity's Ashley Banjo, Red Dwarf star Danny John-Jules and The Full Monty cast member himself Paul Barber.
7. Fearless – Monday at 9pm on ITV
ITV's latest crime drama which sounds like a generic perfume launches this week, and it stars Helen McCrory as a human rights lawyer who aims to prove the innocence of a man convicted of the murder of a schoolgirl 14 years previously. Also starring Michael Gambon, this promises to be an intriguing six-part thriller.
