What to watch on TV tonight: Friday

This is the telly everyone will be talking about tomorrow.


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

The Late, Late Show (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

The Late, Late show has a decent line up with Aprés Match, Jason Byrne and Emmet Kirwan. The most interesting aspect of the show though will be at around 11.30pm the first exit poll from the referendum today. While it will not be the final result, it’ll give us an idea of how the country voted. It’ll be a nail biter probably.

The Purge (E4, 9pm)

Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey star in a movie where to deal with rising crime rates, the government introduces a yearly 12 hour period where all laws are suspended so people can relieve their urges. It’s a horror movie if you haven’t guessed so it’s the perfect relaxant.

Ride Along (TV3, 9pm)

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart star in this comedy where Kevin wants to be a cop so bugs his girlfriend’s brother to take him along. Things get a bit out of hand when they accidentally run into the city’s most wanted criminal because of course it does.

Everyone is talking about.. Idris Elba playing the Hunchback of Notre Dame

So in case you didn’t know, Netflix are remaking ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ and Idris Elba is going to play the main character. He’s also going to direct the movie and produce music for it too because he’s Idris Elba and he can do just about everything.

There’s no release date yet but I can’t be the only one excited to see how they turn Idris unto Quasimodo.

Or flick over for…

  • Gogglebox (Channel 4, 9pm) They’re watching the Royal Wedding tonight which should be worth a watch.
  • Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC Two, 10pm) Frankie is always worth a watch and this week he’ll have our new national treasure Katherine Ryan on.
  • The Graham Norton Show (BBC One, 11.05pm) Graham has Chris Pratt and Jeff Goldblum as well as Thandie Newton. A stellar line up.
