TV Tonight: Can Sam Ryder earn a single point in the UK at Eurovision? | Television & radio

Eurovision Song Contest 2022

8 p.m., BBC One

Uber-camp fun hits Turin this year, where Sam Ryder is hoping to earn at least one point (please!) in the UK with Space Man – a surprisingly good piece of falsetto pop. As usual, Graham Norton will be on hand with plenty of sarcastic remarks on an evening when – for once – the UK is one of the bookmakers’ favourites. The event also creates an opportunity to stand alongside Ukraine, whose participant Kalush Orchestra will perform Stefania – another banger, with rap and a flute solo. Hollie Richardson

Cleverly timed to lift the spirits of anyone who was let down by his Doctor Strange movie, this horror depicts Sam Raimi tugging at all of his dumbest impulses. The story, not that there are many of them, follows a young woman fending off a curse that threatens to torture her for three days before – it’s true – drags her to hell. But you’re not watching a Raimi horror for the plot. You look up to it for all the joyous, whiplash-inducing elan and laughter-inducing inventiveness. This film is a roller coaster ride. Outside of the Evil Dead movies, Raimi has never looked so good. Stuart Legacy
