What to watch on TV tonight: Friday

Here are the shows that will be on your Twitter timeline later.

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

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (E4, 9pm) 

BUELLER! Look, if you’re staying in this Friday, don’t pretend you’ve got anything better to do than sit on the sofa and quote along with one of the greatest teen movies of all time. For added spice, play the Ferris Bueller Drinking Game and take a shot every time you hear THAT noise.* #saveferris

Pick of the chat shows: Alan Carr (Channel 4, 10pm)

With the Late Late Show on its interminable summer hiatus, there are very quiet times in the RTÉ canteen. Meanwhile Alan Carr has the best guests of the night with Carrie Fisher, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill – who was forced to apologise this week for using a gay slur. I mean, how often do you get to see Jonah Hill and Princess Leia on the same couch? #alancarr #chattyman

Best of You’ve Been Framed (ITV2, 8pm)

Before YouTube, there was You’ve Been Framed. And it was the only way we had to witness the recorded humiliation of others. Tonight Harry Hill presents a kind of greatest-hits line-up. Ideally, you should be drunk before watching.

Who’s on the other chat shows?

There’s no Late Late so it’s just Graham Norton who has Mark Ruffalo, Michael Sheen and Amanda Holden.

Everyone’s talking about: Game of Thrones

The swords-and-boobs juggernaut has just surpassed The Sopranos to become cable network HBO’s most-watched show of all time. This fourth season of Game of Thrones – which has featured a number of high-profile goresome episodes – has averaged 18.4 million viewers, beating the record of 18.2million set by the Sopranos in 2002.

It’s also broken piracy records… (Digital Spy)

Or switch over for…

  • Inception (RTÉ Two, 9pm) THAT Christopher Nolan thriller. Pay attention.
  • Celebrity Fifteen To One (Channel 4, 8pm) New series with Johnny Vegas, Heston Blumenthal and former UK politician Ann Widdecombe.
  • 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4, 9pm) New series.
  • Lethal Weapon (TV3, 9pm) Ah, Mel. Remember when we could enjoy your movies without a twinge of guilt?
