What to watch on TV tonight: Monday

This is the TV everyone will be talking about tomorrow. rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians (E!, 9.00pm)

Ryan Seacrest invites Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner to look back at 10 years of the series. And more importantly, we’ll find out whether Kylie’s pregnant or not. (If you watched this on US time, you already know this answer to this. No spoilers!)

The Babymakers (TV3, 9.00pm)

Third episode in this new documentary series that follows six couples from across the country as they go through different fertility treatments at one of Ireland’s most established IVF clinics. Tonight, it’s good news for Naoimh and Robbie when they find out that three embryos have been created while we also get introduced to Newbridge couple Fiona and Eoghan who we meet a few days into their IVF cycle with Fiona struggling badly with a huge needle phobia.

The Bourne Legacy (RTÉ Two, 9.30pm)

Basically, this is the one without Matt Damon. Jeremy Renner plays Aaron Cross, an Outcome agent who’s double-crossed by his handlers and left for dead when the CIA decides to shut down his programme. As per usual, they’re wiping the slate clean by killing off anyone attached to the programme, which also includes one Rachel Weisz. The two quickly team up and go on the run across the globe. Still sounds very exciting, doesn’t it?


Everybody's talking about: This How I Met Your Mother fan theory

How I Met Your Mother fans have potentially turned the series on its head with this new theory.

(Spoilers ahead if you're currently binge-watching).

Courtesy of Tumblr user gingersaurus, who first posted the thought back in February, the theory suggests that because Ted (Josh Radnor) is the one narrating the story and is trying to convince his kids he should be with Robin (Cobie Smulders), he's manipulating the narrative to make Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) come across as 'the bad guy' in the story.

That moment when you realize that Barney Stinson was probably not as much of a jerk or a womanizer as he was portrayed to be, but that the story was narrated by future Ted, trying to get his children to approve of him dating Robin again, so future Ted had to make the man Robin married look like the bad guy in the story."

It would explain why Barney comes across as so extreme in certain circumstances,  but it still seems like a bit of a reach. How do you explain the complexity of The Playbook, then? I mean, how hard is it to believe that Barney actually was just a knob?
