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

The Saturday Night Show (RTÉ One, 9.40pm)

On tonight’s show, Brendan will be joined on the couch by presenter Derek Davis, whippersnapper comedian Al Porter and Lucinda Creighton. The latter will be discussing her new party, so expect it to dominate your Twitter timeline tonight.

The Voice UK (BBC One, 7pm) 

New year, new reality competition to get sucked into. Rita Ora replaces Jessie J on the judging panel this time around, but you can expect business as usual apart from that. (Who won again last year?)

Tsunami: 10 Years On (Channel 4, 8pm) 

Ten years after the tsunami claimed the lives of nearly 230,000 people, this documentary explores the aftermath of the disaster. With the aid of archive footage, reconstructions and interviews with survivors, it promises to be eye-opening at the very least.


Everybody’s talking about…  Wet Hot American Summer

Cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer is reportedly being adapted for a Netflix series with the entire original cast set to return. The 2001 film starred some serious heavyweights including Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd.

Deadline reports that the film’s creators are in the middle of prepping an eight-episode series for the online streaming service.

The film is set at a Jewish summer camp in 1981. Despite failing to do much at the box office during its initial release, it has since achieved a cult following.
