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

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (RTÉ 2, 9.00pm and 10.00pm)

From the people who made ‘The People Vs. OJ Simpson’, this series will focus on the death of fashion designer Gianni Versace in 1997 who was murdered outside his home by serial killer Andrew Cunanan played by Darren Criss. Ricky Martin (yes THE Ricky Martin) and Penelope Cruz also star and it looks set to be another series not to be missed.

First Dates (Channel 4, 10pm)

A firm favourite for everyone, this week will see boxer Jordan from Team Great Britain matched with Chloe, a Thai boxer. They should have plenty to talk about so. Elsewhere, 62 year old Nick who works as a voiceover artist is matched with 52 year old golfer Laura. The date to watch out for will be Ketan who has high functioning autism and is uncomfortable revealing it to partners who is matched with Brodie.

Cardboard Gangsters (3e, 9.00pm)

John Connors writes and stars in this film set in Darndale on the Northside of Dublin. A group of lads are selling drugs in the area and are looking for more power to enter the bigger leagues of the drug trade. Not everyone is pleased with the plan and things start to come undone in a rather violent manner. John Connors won an IFTA for his role in this so it’s definitely worth a watch.

Everyone’s talking about: The Eurovision Chicken Lady

Israel went for a bold choice in this year’s Eurovision as Netta impersonates a chicken at the start of the song. The song itself is actually called ‘Toy’ and is about not being used by men which is something we can all get behind. What the chicken noises have to do with it is unclear but it seems to have won over a lot of people and is currently 6/1 to win the competition.
