Last Night's TV: Shooting Stars/BBC2<br />Horizon/BBC2

When the Shooting Stars pilot was broadcast in 1993 – fully 18 years ago now, the same year that Goodnight Sweetheart and Supermarket Sweep with Dale Winton appeared on our screens – it was shockingly fresh, a jolt of anarchic joy unlike anything else on television. The pleasures that Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer guaranteed relied slightly on the fact that they made you a little nervous. As they propelled a stuffed black bear at Mark Lamarr, challenging him to stay put on his podium for a £5 prize, you laughed a lot, but you weren't sure if there was a more sophisticated joke going on than you had realised. Most of the time, there wasn't, except for the overarching joke behind the whole thing: celebrities are total idiots, and if you're watching one cleaning dandruff off a car windscreen with her bottom, you probably are one too.

Business Diary: CNBC takes a tour with Mellon

Tonight's must-see TV is a new programme on CNBC. CNBC Meets... is the first in a series of interviews with "some of the world's most influential high-flyers" and is hosted by Tania Bryer. Those of you unfamiliar with Bryer's work should know she once replaced Ulrika Jonsson as TV-am's weather girl and has done loads of showbiz reporting for Sky. That doesn't quite square with CNBC vice-president John Casey's talk of "Tania's access to some extraordinary business people", but she has secured fellow former "it girl" Tamara Mellon for tonight – an interview conducted in the walk-in wardrobe of Mellon's New York apartment, no less.
