TV Guide 2019-05-11

Remember how we thought I'll Get This was a little bit too brisk? The producers agree, and Extra Helpings begins (BBC2, Sun). There's a new series of Fifteen-to-One (C4, weekdays), and more Just a Minute (Radio 4, Mon). Radio 4 pays tribute to Jeremy Hardy (Thu).

And it's the Eurovision Song Contest semi-finals (BBC4, RTE2, RTE Radio 1,, Tue and Thu).
