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

One Million Dubliners (RTE One, 10.15pm)

This heartfelt documentary traces the history of Glasnevin Cemetery as a resting place for one million Dubliners. Expect tidbits about Michael Collins’ biggest fangirls, touching testimony from family members with loved ones buried there and a poignant tribute to the late Shane MacThomais.

An Bronntanas (TG4, 9.30pm)

The TG4 series, which apparently makes “Love/Hate look like Postman Pat“, concludes tonight. 340,000 people reportedly watch the first four episodes and if you’re one of them, you definitely won’t want to miss out on the finale.

Maia Dunphy’s What Women Want (RTE Two, 10pm)

Dunphy returns for the second season of her docu-series and continues her exploration of the issues that really get under Irish women’s skin. Tonight, she looks at our relationship with food, dietary fads and more. She may also be eating some bugs, if this tweet is anything to go by.


Everyone’s talking about: Bill Cosby

The embattled comedian, who is currently at the centre of multiple rape allegations, has had several projects cancelled in recent days, including a Netflix special and a proposed NBC sitcom.

The latest is that US station TV Land has pulled all reruns for The Cosby Show indefinitely and will not include the beloved sitcom in a planned Thanskgiving sitcom marathon. Reaction to the move has been mixed.
