What to watch on TV tonight: Monday

This is the telly everyone will be talking about tomorrow.

Irish in Wonderland (RTÉ 2, 9.30pm)

Irish people doing well for themselves isn’t exactly something we seem to enjoy. Naturally then there’s the first of a two part documentary on Irish people who have made a life for themselves in America. Tonight there’s helicopter pilot who has flown the biggest celebrities around, Terry Wogan’s niece who is a health coach and an estate agent who works out of the Hamptons.

The Moorside (TV3, 9pm)

This two part drama series will focus on the disappearance of 9 year old Shannon Matthews in 2008. In part one we see the emotional scenes as Shannon’s mother Karen appeals for information about her missing daughter. However, her neighbour Natalie is struggling as she’s convinced Karen knows more about her missing daughter than she’s letting on.

Inside the American Embassy (Channel 4, 10pm)

In the second part of this documentary, we’ll follow more consular staff as Trump’s travel ban comes into effect. The ban halted all refugee admissions and temporarily barred people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the USA. The episode will focus on Florida where officials must sort between everyone attempting to enter the US.

Everyone’s talking about… The continued fallout from Rosanne Barr’s racist tweets

It’s the story that just won’t end. After Roseanne was axed by ABC following her racist tweets, ABC announced that a spin off  show called ‘The Conners’ would take its place. They also said that they had reached a ‘settlement’ with Barr so that she wouldn’t be involved in any way.

Well now she’s claiming that no settlement was reached. According to The Blast Barr said she didn’t ask ABC for any money.

I didn’t ask to be paid off, I asked for nothing, and I just stepped away … because that is penance. I put a lot of thought into it.

Or flick over for..
