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

Mad Men (Sky Atlantic, 10pm) is over now until 2015. This series has seen the show hit its stride in a major way, with some describing last week’s episode as the best ever. So tonight’s is well worth a flickeroo. #madmen

The Great Irish Bake Off (TV3, 10pm) is about having your cake and eating it too. Or letting a judge eat it. Basically it’s cake with a competitive element, and the participants are Irish. What’s not to like? Well, it would be better if the viewer got cake too but you can’t have it all. #gibo

Coronation Street (TV3 and UTV at 9pm) has had serious dramz lately and tonight’s episode is no different, with Tina’s demise being explained to the residents of the Street. Soaps are doing shocks well at the mo, with Corrie keeping up with the East End’s big reveal last week. #corrie

Everbody is talking about: #True Detective

Speculation has been rife around who might star in the next series of cult hit True Detective, taking the mantle from Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConnaughey. As an anthology series, similar to American Horror Story, the second series won’t necessarily follow on in terms of plot or cast.

Show creator Nic Pizzolatto has now come out to say that the second season will have THREE leads. And it’s moving to California – small towns, not Los Angeles. He has denied that Jessica Chastain has been cast for one of the roles.

Here’s the best guess we’ve seen so far:

Or switch over for…

  • The Supervet (Channel 4, 8pm) is on, if you like newfangled ways to save cuddly pets.
  • Dear John (RTE One, 10.10pm) is a Nicholas Sparks movie, so like The Notebook, except with the ridey Channing Tatum.
  • The History Boys (BBC4, 9pm) is one movie we bet you haven’t seen in a while. 
  • Britain’s Got Talent (UTV, 7.30pm) blugdeons you over the head with aural mediocrity. 
  • 24: Live Another Day (Sky One, 9pm) will leave you wondering when Bauer uses the jacks, as usual.
