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

Trump v Ireland (TV3, 10pm)

The first half of a two part documentary airs tonight and looks at the influence of Irish-Americans within the Trump administration. Presenter Matt Cooper will be examining the roles of Sean Spicer, Mike Pence, Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon in particular.

It will also look at the ways in which Irish people living legally and illegally in the United States will be affected by Trump’s presidency.

Ordinary Lies (RTÉ2, 9.35pm)

Series two of the popular drama returns to our screens, this time with a new cast and setting. The second series follows the lives of a group of colleagues in a call centre and warehouse for a sports sales company. Each episode focuses on an individual colleague with tonight’s character being Joe (played by Con O’Neill).

Joe comes home from work early to find his wife acting suspiciously and responds to fears of her infidelity by installing CCTV around the house. It’s very likely that this will end badly for reasons other than what he expects to find.

Yves Saint Laurent (TG4, 9.30pm)

This 2014 movie chronicles the life of the designer from when he meets his partner (both in romance and business) Pierre Bergé and is catapulted to stardom at age 21 as the successor of Christian Dior in 1957.

Several years later he is humiliated and publicly fired but creates Yves Saint Laurent fashion house and eventually manages to democratize fashion by creating the world’s first ‘ready to wear’ collection against the backdrop of the 1960’s women’s liberation movement.
