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

Big Brother Launch Night (3e, 9pm, TV3, 10pm) 

The new series is kicking off this evening and there’s a polyamorous Irish girl going into the house. Of course there is. This year Big Brother will be aired on both TV3 and 3e, instead of being relegated to Channel 5 as in previous years. There’s a Timebomb there, and the house looks like Mad Men got sick on it. #BigBrother 

Prime Time (RTÉ One, 9.35pm) 

A look at some of the country’s unsolved murders, following on from recent publicity around the Raonaid Murray case. #PrimeTime 

Ireland’s Lost Babies (RTÉ One, 11.10pm)

A repeat of the investigation into the Catholic Church’s role in adoptions from illegitimate mothers. Journalist Martin Sixsmith, who was played by Steve Coogan in the film Philomena,  travelled to Ireland and America to tell the stories of the women and children involved. #IrelandsLostBabies
