What to watch on TV tonight: Sunday

Here are the shows that’ll be on your Twitter timeline this evening

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

Well Holy God It’s Glenroe (RTÉ One, 9.30pm) 

No, you’re not seeing things and no you don’t have to go to school tomorrow. Well Holy God It’s Glenroe is a celebration of the soap that caressed everyone’s Sunday night fear for 20 years. Former cast members Biddy, Mary and Dick all contribute.

8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown Christmas Special (Channel 4, 10.10pm) 

There’s a lot to digest in the title of this show, we’ll grant you that. This year’s 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown festive addition features our own (well, he’s Irish like, we don’t actually own the deeds to him or anything) David O’Doherty, Katherine Ryan and Johnny Vegas.

Iron Man 2 (RTÉ 2, 8.45pm)

The sequel (duh) to Iron Man. It sees Tony Stark facing pressure from all sides to relinquish his technology while also fighting the evil Russian scientist Ivan Vanko. Interesting sidenote: Mr Jennifer Aniston (and cousin to Louis) Justin Theroux wrote the script.
