Veep, 9.35pm, Sky Atlantic

Selina’s campaign trail takes her to Detroit, where she is about to speak at an employment conference to announce a company’s creation of 7,000 new jobs. Unfortunately, Dan, who is now her campaign manager, is losing control and misses the fact that in six months’ time, those positions will be either axed or exported. Selina’s misfortune is complete when her daughter Catherine punches a jobs protester who is dressed as the Statue of Liberty, believing they were about to attack her mother.

Silicon Valley, 9.00pm, Sky Atlantic

There’s just one week to go until the grand unveiling of Pied Piper and Richard is having trouble configuring it to the cloud. Determined to solve the problem on his own but with no time to do it, he reluctantly agrees to bring in a consultant known as The Carver (Austin Abrams). He turns out to be a bratty high-school wunderkind and while initially everything seems to go smoothly, it’s not long before Richard finds him crying and shaking underneath a table.

Live Champions League, 7.30pm, RTÉ Two

Darragh Maloney presents live coverage of Maribor v Celtic in the Champions League Play-Off Round first-leg clash. (KO 7.45pm). The Scottish champions led a charmed life in the previous round as - after being hammered by Legia Warsaw, who beat Irish champions Saint Patrick's Athletic in the previous round - they got readmitted after Legia played an unpermitted sub when the tie was already 6-1 in their favour. Slovenian champions NK Maribor may fancy their chances with the group phase just a round away.
