Here’s the telly that everyone will be talking about tomorrow.

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

The Tommy Tiernan Show (RTÉ One, 10.15pm)

Last week’s episode went down extremely well with viewers. Can Tiernan recreate his magic again? As always, the guests are a mystery to viewers, but if last week’s are anything to go by — Russell Howard, Christy Dignam and Vogue Williams — then we’re in for a treat.

This Is Jobstown (TV3, 9pm)

If this short clip is anything to go by, then it’s bound to be powerful.
