Whether you’re heading out or staying in, we’ve got the telly for you.

YOU KNOW WHAT guys? It’s the freakin’ weekend baby and we’re about to have us some fun.

For some that means heading out on the town, for others it means bedding down on the couch for some TV time.

If you’re planning on TV time, we’ve got some suggestions for you, no matter what you’re into or how you’re feeling.

Check it.

If you’re still craving more Anchorman stuff… The Late Late Show (Fri, RTE1, 21:35)


The Anchorman lads dropped into RTE during the week to have a chat with Ryan Tubridy and you’ll get to see it tonight on the Late Late.

They’re all wearing Ireland jerseys – what’s not to like?  Also, there’s an appearance by Daniel O’Donnell.

If you’re still sad about Paul Walker… The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (Fri, 22:35, UTV)


If you’d like to remind yourself of what Paul Walker’s acting was like, why not check out this, the third installment of the Fast and the Furious movie franchise?

If you’re in the mood to geek out… Tron and Tron: Legacy (Sat, 17:30 and 20:00, BBC2)


The BBC are showing both Tron films, new and old, on Saturday so you can watch them back to back and compare, if that’s your thing.

There is an hour long programme covering Nelson Mandela’s final return to his home village in between them.  We’d hate you to be unprepared for it.

If you’re feeling deficient in Christmas spirit… Die Hard (Sat, 21:00, E4)


Nothing says Christmas like ‘Yippee ki yay motherf***ers!’

Why not spend some time with John McClane, and find your inner festive feelings?

If you’ve felt a little out of the loop… Mandela: The Prison Years (Sun, 22:45, UTV)

South Africa Mandela Mourning Themba Hadebe Themba Hadebe
