EVERY WEEKDAY lunchtime, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.#

Brazil: In The Shadow of the Stadiums (BBC One, 11.35pm) reports on the millions spend on this summer’s upcoming World Cup and how the spend has led to violent riots and protests. In a country where many live in poverty, can the expenditure be justified? One to watch in advance of the incoming footballing takeover. #worldcup

My Last Summer (Channel 4, 10pm) joins the suite of Channel 4 documentaries – except this one is less “shock doc” and more poignant. It follows five terminally ill patients who are brought together to a house to discuss their last months. It will get heavy, you have been warned. #mylastsummer

The People’s Debate With Vincent Browne (TV3, 10pm) has been a great addition to the spread of Irish current affairs programming. The live studio audience only adds to Vincent’s tried and tested format. With all the chopping and changing with the Labour party recently, no doubt VinB will cut right to the core issues. #vinb #peoplesdebate

Everbody is talking about: #BoJack Horseman

The first trailer for a new animated Netflix Originals series has dropped – and the cast is absolutely stellar. BoJack Horseman stars Will Arnett as a failed sitcom star, alongside Amy Sedaris, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie.

All episodes of the series will debut on the 22nd of August on the online-only subscription TV series we love to binge on. Oh, Netflix. We love you.

Or switch over for…

  • The Great Irish Bake Off (TV3, 9pm) continues after last week’s sudden double elimination. 
  • Mercury Prize Sessions (Channel 4, 12am) has performances from Bombay Bicycle Club, Broken Bells and Drenge. 
  • 24: Live Another Day (Sky One, 10pm) features hijacked drones and Stephen Fry. A winning mix surely.
  • Blue Bloods (9.30pm, 10.25pm) has two back-to-back episodes on tonight if you’re dying for a double dose of Selleck. 
  • Drillbit Taylor (Film Four, 7pm) with Owen Wilson is on if you fancy a bit of silliness, with or without the kids in tow.
