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

Penny Dreadful (Sky Atlantic, 9pm).  The spooky, Victorian-era horror drama is here. At long last! We here at DailyEdge.ie can’t be the only ones dying to see this Irish-filmed series, can we? For some reason, knowing that the action took place on our soil makes the whole thing more exciting. Not to mention the fact that Billie Piper and Josh Hartnett were spotted in Whelan’s a few months ago. #pennydreadful

Prime Time Election Debates (RTE 1, 9.40pm) is getting in before the mortitorium drops in advance of the elections this Friday. This is the last night of the specials, and one of the last few current affairs programmes you’ll be dealing with before you face the ballot paper. TG. #rtept

Later Live – With Jools Holland (BBC Two, 10pm). This week sees Kelis tread Jools’s famous boards, alongisde Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders playing some solo material and Ed Sheeran, Irish fan favourite, playing songs off his forthcoming album X. Hurray for the Riff Raff, Nick Mulvey and White Denim also feature. #jools #laterlive

Everybody is talking about: #Sherlock

Mark Gatiss has spoken to Digital Spy – confirming that they are inching ever-closer to confirming a start date for filming of series four of Sherlock. SCREAM!

The co-creator said: “I can officially tell you that we are moving closer to agreeing some dates to shoot … That is proper progress because Ben (Cumberbatch) and Martin (Freeman) and Stephen (Moffatt, the show’s other creator) are so busy, but actually trying to get everybody to interlock is – we have made significant progress.”

Any excuse for this…

Or switch over for…

  • Ireland By Night (TV3, 8pm). Last in the social doc series about people in Ireland who work night shifts. This week, journos, blood transporters and fishmongers.
  • Tonight With Vincent Browne (TV3, 11pm) will take over your Twitter feed with #VinB madness, if you haven’t had your fill with Prime Time earlier.
  • Grand Designs Australia (More 4, 10pm) is the perfect show for you if you love architectural feats but dislike Kevin McCloud, as he’s not in it. 
  • The Consumer Show (RTE One, 8.30pm) takes on the hot button topic of e-cigarettes and investigates why some pubs sell soft drinks at a higher price than beer.
  • Grey’s Anatomy (RTE Two, 9pm) is still going strong, just in case you didn’t notice – and storylines are distinctly hotting up of late, so might be one to revisit if you’re missing The Good Wife.
