This Week's Must-See TV: 5 Shows You Shouldn't Miss

By and Daniel Sperling
Steps
We've been belting out 'Deeper Shade of Blue' while compiling this week's TV picks. Why? Because the Steps tour documentary is among this week's must-watch telly programmes, and rightfully so.

We've also included a smattering of comedy, a monumental episode of a primetime favourite and potentially the biggest show in the world - Game of Thrones - for those who aren't fans of '90s pop.

Steps: On the Road Again: Monday at 9pm on Sky Living
The first series of Sky Living's Steps doco was one of the surprise hits of 2011 - the group reunited and patched up their differences on screen, thrilling fans of cheese-tastic pop music the world over! This second series will follow the five-piece as they prepare for their big comeback tour - there's vocal sessions, costume fittings and plenty of tears as the group prepare to hit the road for the first time in 11 years...

Game of Thrones: Monday at 9pm on Sky Atlantic
There's tragedy of a different kind over on Sky Living's sister channel, as the second season of Game of Thrones continues to grow ever more dark! The fantasy drama's latest run has taken a little while to get going, but things really start to kick into gear with ep 4, 'Garden of Bones'. You can check out our teasers here - expect some gruesome violence, a little sexual perversion and an ending that has to be seen to be believed!

Waterloo Road: Wednesday at 8pm on BBC One
You knew this day was coming. Tonight Waterloo Road will close its doors, say goodbye to Rochdale and be reborn in sunny Scotland. While the teachers are considering moving to Glasgow and starting new lives, others could end up losing theirs when Tariq (Naveed Choudhry) and Kyle (George Sampson) manage to smuggle a crossbow into school. Whatever happens, it's safe to say that life at Waterloo Road will never be the same again.

2 Broke Girls: Thursday at 9pm on E4
This smash-hit US sitcom narrowly missed out on a place in our top five picks when it premiered last week, so we felt that episode two had to win a slot this time round! In 'And the Break-up Scene', Caroline (Beth Behrs) thinks she's doing Max (Kat Dennings) a favour when she takes it upon herself to dump her new friend's philandering boyfriend Robbie (Noah Mills), but her actions lead to trouble between the two ladies! 2 Broke Girls may have divided critics, but it's already been picked up for a second season stateside - 8.5 million US viewers (on average) can't be wrong, right?

8 out of 10 Cats: Friday at 9pm on Channel 4
Hot on the heels of rival panel shows Have I Got News For You and Would I Lie To You, Jimmy Carr's Channel 4 quiz finally returns for a new series this week. Team captains Sean Lock and Jon Richardson are back to answer questions on surveys, polls and statistics with a bunch of celebrity guests, who will more than likely have the mickey taken out of them along the way. If you're after more laughs, stay with Channel 4 afterwards for impression show Very Important People and a new series of Alan Carr's Chatty Man.
