What to watch on TV tonight: Thursday

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


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

Heston’s Great British Food (Channel 4, 9pm)

Chocolate! Chocolate! Um, chocolate. Culinary mad-scientist Heston Blumenthal tackles the theme of chocolate in this hour-long episode, which we strongly suspect will bring 60 minutes of almost-unbearable choco-porn. He promises to create (among other things) a supersized chocolate bar and a Black Forest gateau drink.

Suits (Dave, 9pm)

It’s the season three finale of the highly-regarded US legal drama, which broadcast in the US last month. The buzz on Twitter promises a decent ending – but almost more importantly, a killer setup for the upcoming fourth season. #suits

Dog Day Afternoon (RTÉ One, 12.20am)

Fantastic vintage Al Pacino movie, starring the (very) young Al as a bank robber whose heist goes horribly, horribly wrong. Enjoy an acting masterclass from Pacino and John Cazale, who died just three years later from lung cancer. One of the greats.

Everybody’s talking about: Two And A Half Men

Source: CBS

The long-running US comedy was finally cancelled yesterday, years after many had predicted its demise. Charlie Sheen lasted an impressive eight seasons on the show despite his well-publicised personal issues, while Ashton Kutcher was last to play the man-child role. The critics hated it, but the audiences loved it – basically, Two And A Half Men was America’s Mrs Brown’s Boys.

Or switch over for:

  • The Zoo (RTÉ One, 7pm) Baby monkeys arrive tonight. Baby monkeys!
  • Masterchef: The Finals (BBC One, 9pm) Penultimate episode of this series, with the final contestants sent to Spain.
  • Des Bishop: Breaking China (RTÉ One, 10.15pm) Des joins a Chinese amateur comedy group.
  • Firefox (ITV4, 10.35pm) Enjoyably brainless Clint Eastwood movie about a Cold War fighter pilot.
  • Laura Hall: My Battle With Booze (9.30pm, RTÉ Two) Documentary about one British woman’s struggle to give up alcohol.
