The Leftovers (Sky Atlantic, 9pm) 

Highly anticipated new series from Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof. The premise is that two per cent of the world’s population has disappeared without a trace, including the likes of the Pope and… er… Gary Busey. The Leftovers joins those left behind three years later. #TheLeftovers 


Everybody’s talking about… #50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy
