What to watch on TV tonight: Tuesday

Here are the shows that’ll 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.

True Detective (Sky Atlantic, 1.35am)

If you missed this genre-defining show on its first broadcast earlier this year, a repeat of the entire series begins tonight on Sky Atlantic. Yes, we KNOW it’s late and it’s a school night. But the wonderful double-act of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson awaits. Unmissable. #truedetective

Way to Go: Death and the Irish (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

Documentary featuring Irish people discussing that always-taboo subject: death. The show is fronted by Norah Casey, who lost her husband in 2011. It promises to be both insightful and moving. #waytogo

Natural Born Killers (ITV4, 10pm)

Woody Harrelson makes his second appearance in tonight’s picks, for his unforgettably lunatic performance as a serial killer alongside Juliette Lewis. Classic Oliver Stone thriller released – along with Pulp Fiction – 20 years ago this year.

Everybody’s talking about: #CommunityLivesOn

Cult comedy Community was cancelled by NBC earlier this year after five seasons as a fan favourite. But after several months of will-they-won’t-they resurrection talks with Netflix, Hulu and the like, the show has now been officially rescued by none other than Yahoo – who are hoping that it will breathe some life into their own online TV-streaming service.


Or switch over for…

  • Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away! Final Demand (TV3, 9pm) Final episode of this documentary about the world of debt collection
  • World Cup: Argentina vs Switzerland (5pm) and Belgium vs USA (9pm)
  • First Dates (E4, 10pm) Repeat of the show where actual, real people let themselves be filmed on actual, real dates. The horror.
  • Shopgirls (BBC2, 9pm) Did you work in Claire’s Accessories as a teenager? Then you have these early-20th-century retail workers to thank. Great-looking BBC documentary.
