The Graham Norton Show (BBC One, 10.35pm)

We might be nearly sick of the sight of them here in Ireland, but the Daddy’s Home 2 cast are now in the UK and popping up on all the regular chat shows. Tonight, Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson and John Lithgow are on the Graham Norton couch for a big group chat about the movie and their lives in general. There’s also talk that the red chair is in action tonight, so expect some good ones.

The Late Late Show (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

Daniel O’Donnell performs and tells host Ryan Tubridy about his year, going back on the road with wife Majella and how Dermot Bannon is getting on transforming their home. Plus, mentalist, hypnotist and magician Keith Barry plays some tricks with the audience and performs a “feat of escapology”.

Identity Thief (Film4, 9pm)

A con-woman acquires an executive’s credit card numbers, and lives a life of luxury at his expense. The outraged victim sets out on a mission to track down the fraudster and bring her to justice personally – resulting in them travelling on a disastrous road trip across America together. Comedy, with Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Favreau and Amanda Peet.


Everybody’s talking about: Law & Order SVU are doing an episode “addressing” the Harvey Weinstein scandal

Details have emerged this week that Law & Order will talk about workplace harassment with an episode set in the airline industry, as The Hollywood Reporter writes:

The veteran Dick Wolf procedural will explore rape culture in the workplace but it won’t be set in Hollywood. Instead, the hour will be set in the airline industry as producers on the Mariska Hargitay starrer were already working on the episode when the Weinstein scandal broke and proceeded to change Hollywood’s conversation about sexual harassment in the workplace.
“We were actually working on a story about airline pilots and what a boys club that is,” exec producer Michael Chernuchin told EW, who was first to report the SVU episode news. “We were beating the story out and said, ‘Wow, this is exactly what the actresses go through in Hollywood. It’s the same environment.’ So we got all of our Harvey stuff out with airline pilots.”
