What to watch on TV this weekend

It’s the telly everyone will be talking about this weekend.

DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting and talking about this weekend.

Saturday

Ireland v USA (RTE 2, 5.30pm) If you’re still high on the buzz of last Saturday’s defeat of the All Blacks, get yourself prepared for a lighter round against the USA. Live footage from the Aviva. 

Mermaids (RTE 2, 11.50pm) Winona Ryder and Cher feature in this, one of my favourites of all time. If that’s not enough to get you in, I don’t know what I can do for ya. It tells the story of a woman living a nomadic lifestyle with her two young girls, and features IT’S IN HIS KISS.

Evita, The Making of a Superstar (BBC 2, 9pm) If you’re in any way a musical nerd, you’ll love this investigation into how Evita became one of the West End’s most celebrated characters.
