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

Over to Bill (BBC One, 10.35pm)

If you enjoy classic “Dad” comedy, then this is the programme for you. And let’s face it, who doesn’t? This is the first in a trio of one-off Comedy Playhouse sitcoms starring Hugh Dennis and Neil Morrissey – two of the most inoffensive yet supremely likeable comedic actors going. Cosy one.

Mr Drew’s School for Boys (Channel 4, 9pm)

If you liked previous Channel 4 outings Educating Essex and Educating Yorkshire, then you’ll like Mr Drew’s School for Boys. In fact, you might remember Stephen Drew from 2011′s Essex programme. He sets out to help 11 difficult pupils (and their parents) in this poignant, interesting documentary series. First tonight.

Embarrassing Bodies: Live from the Clinic (Channel 4, 8pm)

The gross, yet strangely compelling, Embarrassing Bodies comes at us live from Newcastle, where we’re sure they’ll pick up a couple of interesting (ahem) ailments. This week, Pixie looks at how and why humans produce a range of foreign bodies. Not for the faint of heart. Maybe literally.

Trending: #Late Night Switch Ups

Foul-mouthed, ball-busting late night presenter and comedian Chelsea Handler looks set to move from E! – to Netflix. It’s looking increasingly likely that Handler will accept a deal with the online-only subscription service.

This comes after David Letterman stood down to be replaced by Stephen Colbert, and today’s news that Craig Ferguson is leaving the Late Late Show. It’s all change on the late night circuit.
