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

The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, 9.35pm

Louis Walsh and his new boyband Hometown are the main draw tonight, but can they make the lasting impression Boyzone’s first Late Late appearance made? Elsewhere, Emma Sayle of the infamous ‘Killing Kittens’ sex parties will likely be shocking the mammies at home, but singer-songwriter David Gray will calm them down again with his dulcet tones. So it’s win-win all round. #latelate

Bloom (RTÉ One, 8pm) 

Keelin Shanley takes us on a whistle-stop tour of Ireland’s largest gardening festival, which includes a sneak peek behind the scenes at the judging of the show gardens. If you’re heading down to the festival in the Phoenix Park this weekend, this’ll have you raring to go. #bloom

Casino Royale, UTV, 10.45pm

DANIEL CRAIG. JAMES BOND. BLUE SWIMMING TRUNKS. Ideally, that’s where we’d end this synopsis, but we feel a duty to let you know there is also a great deal of shooting, killing, explosions and sexy times in this movie. Something for all the family. #casinoroyale

Yes, that’s right. The shock-rocker will have a recurring role in the US motorcycle drama’s seventh and final season, playing a white supremacist “prison shot-caller”.

Manson says he’s doing it for his dad, who’s a huge fan of the show. Aww. He’s a big softie, really.

Or switch over for…

  • The Story of Women and Art (BBC Two, 9pm) A celebration of the women that have pushed the boundaries of art. 
  • Have I Got News For You (BBC One, 9pm) Latest episode of the popular topical quiz show.
  • Live International Football (UTV, 7.30pm) England take on Peru. Sports. 
  • District 9 (RTÉ Two, 9pm) Critically acclaimed sci-fi film. Aliens, aliens and more aliens.
  • Later… with Jools Holland (BBC Two, 11.05pm) Repeat – but Arcade Fire, Imelda May and Sharon Van Etten make this a good one to catch up on.
