DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

Vlogglebox (E4, 9pm)

This six-part series is a spin-off of everyone’s favourite comfort TV – Gogglebox. As the name suggests, this show will allow us to observe 16 to 24-year-olds as they watch viral clips  on their phones, laptops and tablets.

Unlike the TV show, it won’t film them as they react on their sofas, but rather via an iPhone camera attached to the device that they’re watching the videos from. In theory this doesn’t necessarily sound that appealing, but then again, in theory Gogglebox is a terrible show – who wants to watch people watching TV? Yet somehow, Gogglebox has been a huge (and hilarious) success.

Too Old for the Road (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

This documentary meets some of Ireland’s oldest drivers and looks at the concerns they face. From failing eyesight, to the prospect of being unable to drive, there’s a deep anxiety about losing the huge amount of freedom that driving offers an individual.

Horizon: 10 Things You Need to Know About the Future (BBC2, 8pm)

Mathematician Hannah Fry is joined by a selection of BBC science experts to investigate the British public’s questions about the future. Can we cure cancer? Could we potentially live forever? Hannah examines the future of transport and the possibility of ditching fossil fuels and questions whether the planet is on the verge of another mass extinction.
