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

Moone Boy (Sky1, 9pm)

Roscommon’s greatest ever sitcom* returns in triumph for a third series, with its clown-car cast of Irish comedians including Chris O’Dowd and Deirdre O’Kane. Expect some pretty good gags and – perhaps more importantly - numerous on-the-nail 1990s references that will send you shooting back to childhood. #mooneboy


Whistleblowers: Can We Handle The Truth? (TV3, 10pm)

New TV3 documentary about whistleblowers in Ireland, and the consequences of speaking out about corruption or criminal activity. The programme looks at how those who raise their voices have been treated by the Irish state.

The Notorious (RTÉ Two, 10pm)

Latest instalment in the Conor McGregor show, with tonight’s episode going behind the scenes of his travelling caravan in the run-up to McGregor’s fight against Dennis Siver in Boston. Expect trash talk. #thenotorious
