RTÉ TEN TV picks for Monday May 26

John Lonergan is first up to bat on the new run of The Family Project

The Family Project (8.00pm, RTÉ One) returns for a second run, the gang on Modern Family (8.30pm, Sky 1) visit Australia, while cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine (9.00pm, RTÉ Two) sees Boyle makes Peralta his best man.

The Family Project, 8.00pm, RTÉ One

Back for a second run, celebrities such as John Lonergan, Davy Fitzgerald, Yvonne Keating, John Spillane and Brendan Courtney help families to learn new skills, make small changes and push themselves to try new things to change their lives and inspire their futures. Episode one features author and former Mountjoy governor John Lonergan as he works with the Menton family in the Dublin suburb of Inchicore, to help 15-year-old Aaron realise his dream of becoming a tour guide.

Modern Family, 8.30pm, Sky 1

The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tuckers head Down Under so that Phil can fulfil his late mum’s wish: to return to Australia, the country where he was conceived. Sadly, Phil’s attempts to embrace his Aussie roots are met with rejection or spoiled by rotten bad luck (involving jellyfish and an aggressive kangaroo). Jay and Claire, on the other hand, commit a big no-no by letting work eat into their holiday, while Mitch and Cam meet up with an old friend they can’t stand.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 9.00pm, RTÉ Two

This perfectly-formed cop sitcom is one of life’s great pleasures so it’s a pity that tonight’s is season one’s third-last episode. Boyle makes Peralta his best man, which means cake-tasting, picking stationery, and helping Charles convince Vivian that he doesn't want to relocate to Canada. Meanwhile Gina, Amy, and the Sergeant attempt a team diet plan, and Holt makes Rosa apologize to a patrol officer she humiliated. Later on there’s The Savage Eye and Return of the Rod Squad. Enjoy!
