What's on TV Tonight?
Normal People: 9pm, BBC One
The series, which is based on Sally Rooney's novel has garnered a huge amount of praise. In particular, the performances from Daisy Edgar-Jones (Marianne Sheridan) and Paul Mescal (Connell Waldron) have been outstanding.In a recent tweet, television Host James Corden went as far as to claim that watching the show may have changed his life.

The series which premiered in Ireland on April 28th follows Sligo natives Connell and Marianne as they graduate from secondary school and begin studying at Trinity College Dublin. The two have contrasting backgrounds and personalities, which leads to a very complex romantic relationship between them. The first half of season one is directed by Irish director and academy award nominee, Lenny Abrahamson.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Sky Comedy, 10.05pm
Renowned comedian and actor John Oliver presents his weekly political satire show and gives us a humorous and unique take on current affairs.
In tonight's episode, John takes a look at Donald Trump's questionable COVID-19 strategies and unusual interactions with the media. In particular, he questions the president's decision not to wear a mask on a trip to a mask factory.
Kevin Hart: Seriously Funny: 11pm, Comedy Central
It's hard to believe that a man who was reduced to small roles in films like Epic Movie and Superhero Movie throughout the 2000s would reach such an incredible level of success over the next decade. Truth be told, Hart's rise to stardom was more to do with his stand-up ability than his acting. This routine, in particular, is a great example of why.
Kevin Hart: Seriously Funny is a fantastic stand-up performance from 2010 in front of a sell-out crowd in Cleveland, Ohio. In his routine, Kevin gives hilarious takes on a wide range of topics including anger control, the first time his child cursed, and other family experiences in his typical high-energy fashion.
