What to watch on TV tonight: Friday

Congratulations on making it through the week.

DAILYEDGE.IE ROUNDS UP the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow. 

The Graham Norton Show (BBC One, 10.35pm)

Graham is joined by Margot Robbie and Allison Janney, both nominated at this year’s Oscars for their roles in true-life drama I, Tonya. Also on the sofa is Alicia Vikander, Oscar-winner for The Danish Girl, who is currently starring as Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider movie. Plus, singer-songwriter Camila Cabello performs Havana.

First Dates: Valentine’s Special (Channel 4, 9.00pm)

Blonde bombshell Dominique meets mortgage advisor Buddy, hoping he will match her conversational prowess and be willing to accept her just the way she is – loud laugh included. Self-confessed softy Issac attempts to get over being homeless for three years following his mother death by meeting up with feisty single mum Maya. Elsewhere, retired nurse Sue has a penchant for Jeremy Corbyn’s look and anticipates retired electrician Peter will fit the bill, and Disney superfan James hopes his date will be a fairy-tale romance worthy of his favourite films.

The Late Late Show (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

Following her election as the new president of Sinn Féin Deputy Mary Lou McDonald will join Ryan Tubridy to discuss taking over the leadership of the party after 35 years with Gerry Adams at the helm. Gabriel Byrne will be live in studio talking about his new film Hereditary and picking up a lifetime achievement award at the IFTAs. Golden Globe nominated actress, Caitriona Balfe joins Ryan to talk about how she went from growing up in Monaghan to finding international fame with hit series Outlander. Dermot Bannon will be on the couch to chat about the new series of Room to Improve, and what happened when he took on the challenge of renovating the Donegal home of Daniel and Majella O’Donnell.


Everyone's talking about: Jeffrey Tambor

The actor was fired from Transparent following allegations of sexual misconduct.

In a statement, the actor told Deadline: "I am profoundly disappointed in Amazon's handling of these false accusations against me. I am even more disappointed in Jill Soloway's unfair characterization of me as someone who would ever cause harm to any of my fellow cast mates."

In our four-year history of working together on this incredible show, these accusations have NEVER been revealed or discussed directly with me or anyone at Amazon. Therefore, I can only surmise that the investigation against me was deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set.
As I have consistently stated, I deeply regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone and I will continue to vehemently defend myself. I also deeply regret that this ground-breaking show, which changed so many lives, is now in jeopardy. That, to me, is the biggest heartbreak."
