What to watch on TV tonight: Friday

All of the TV you’ll be talking about tomorrow.

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

Paul Blart: Mall Cop (Virgin Media One, 10pm)

Comedy starring Kevin James. The 2009 film tells the story of a single father who hopes to fulfil his dreams of becoming a police officer. When poor health scuppers his plans, he turns his attention to a new gig, and it’s not long before this mild-mannered mall cop is forced to prove himself against the underbelly of society.

Graham Norton’s Good Story Guide (BBC One, 10.35pm)

If there’s one thing The Graham Norton Show is known for, it’s the host’s ability to coax an epic story out of his panel of guests. In this special, Graham goes behind the scenes of his much-loved chat show to talk tactics when it comes to telling a good story. Expect appearances from some of the world’s biggest stars, as per usual.

Creed (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

Starring Michael B Jordan and Sylvester Stallone. Reprising arguably his most iconic role, Stallone plays Rocky Balboa in this 2015 drama, and mentors the son of his late friend and former rival, Apollo Creed.


Everyone is talking about… Jay and Neil from The Inbetweeners

So, at this stage we know that Fwends Reunited went down like a lead balloon.

The show, which was a ten-year reunion of The Inbetweeners cast, was clearly not what the public was expecting, and disappointed viewers wasted no time saying as much on Twitter.

Interestingly, two of the show’s cast, James Buckley who played Jay and Blake Harrison who played Neil, responded to the backlash, with James apologising to fans of the show.

While Blake didn’t apologise, he did give an insight into his approach to handling backlash.


Or flick over for…

  • Titanic (TG4, 9.05pm) If you missed it over Christmas, now’s your chance.
  • Reeling in the Years (RTÉ One, 6.30pm) It’s 1996, and it’s the year of the Spice Girls.
  • The Big Fat Quiz of Everything (Channel 4, 9pm) Lots of celebs face lots of questions.
  • X-Men – The Last Stand (E4, 9pm) The third instalment of the superhero franchise.
