Remotely Funny (BBC1); Ant And Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway (ITV) ; Is Harry On The Boat? (Sky One); Fields Of Gold (BBC1)

The search for a new Saturday night entertainment show hit is on, but Remotely Funny isn't it. This hidden camera show has celebrities trying to persuade perfect strangers to do odd things, such as talk to plants or remove their shirt in public. The challenges are set by contestants "controlling" the celebrities and they win money if the dare is carried out.

Only minor celebrities are silly enough to get EastEnder (Adam Woodyatt, Albert Square's Ian Beale) and presenter Dani Behr in the first edition. Remotely entertaining, it isn't.

Much more lively was Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, the Geordie pair's latest bid to break into peaktime television.

Just as Remotely Funny owes much to Candid Camera, so Ant and Dec's show is a new take on Noel Edmond's House Party with a nod to Jim'll Fix It, two previous early Saturday evening triumphs.

They're even cheeky enough - and the pair have more cheek than a nudist beach - to round up people for whom Jim failed to fix it. So a woman who wrote in 1973 wanting to sit in the bath with the Liverpool football team finally got her wish, although not with the current players but those from the 70s.

Just like Noel, there was a surprise live camera link. The audience at a Durham cinema were confronted with Ant and Dec on screen, informing them that one of them had £3,000 waiting at home. A mad dash for the exit ensued.

The most publicised item was the chance to win the items featured in the commercial breaks of ITV programmes. Correct answers won the prizes, which could be anything from toothpaste and wine gums to a car and US holiday.

There's plenty on offer in this Takeaway but nothing lasts long enough for you to get bored. Best of all, Ant and Dec's cheeky chappy personalities make the show zip along. A hit, I think.

New British drama on Sky One is as rare as a laugh on a Brian Conley show but Is Harry On The Boat? is a home-produced series - or rather, made in Ibiza. This story of reps for a young, free and single holiday company on the island plays like a cross between the BBC tour rep series Sunburn and raunchy documentary Ibiza Uncovered. It's sunny, sandy and sexy with oodles of bad language, nudity and sexual shenanigans.

Watched after a few beers, it probably seems like Brideshead Revisited, despite lines like "It's nearly chucking up time".

Not many laughs in Fields Of Gold, a deadly earnest two-parter trying desperately hard to be an Edge Of Darkness conspiracy theory drama for the 21st century.

A pair of laughable journalists - a hard-drinking, cynical hack and his novice female photographer accomplice - didn't convince, which is strange as the drama was written by two journalists. The plot moved from mysterious deaths of elderly patients in hospital into a government cover-up over genetically modified crops. A case of going from serial killer to cereal killer.
