First Dates Ireland (RTE 2, 9.30pm)

Cousins Mikey and Eamon arrive for a double date with students Aoife and Elizabeth – just to mix things up a little. Also, salesman David makes his pitch to Lithuanian single mum Milana. It’s Thursday nights, and First Dates Ireland being back has made them so much better. #FirstDatesIRL

The Tommy Tiernan Show (RTÉ One, 10.15pm)

Episode five of RTÉ’s wildly successful alternative chat show. We don’t know who the guests will be – nor does Tommy – but if the Christy Dignam chat from the first episode and the John Connors one from last week are anything to go by, you know the potential is always there for a riveting watch. #TommyTiernanShow

Generation F’d (RTÉ 2, 10.30pm)

It’s the last in the series of the RTÉ 2 documentary, featuring interviews with young people making a new path for themselves, and the big issues affecting Ireland’s lost generation, including emigration and unemployment.
