It's last orders for Frankie Boyle's New World Order on BBC Two while the latest from Netflix is comedy Friends from College.

Pick of the day

Frankie Boyle's New World Order, 10.00pm, BBC Two

With the chat shows (Late Late, Graham Norton) not on, telly on Friday's can be a bit of a damp squib with just the odd film and repeats – but this is a good laugh if you're not easily offended.

Controversial Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle hosts as tonight he concludes his four-part, often cynical, look at the world. He's joined by regular panellists Sara Pascoe and Katherine Ryan, as well as some special guests.

Expect foul language and strong opinions from the start.

Movie Choice of the day

Noble, 9.35pm, RTÉ One

Written and directed by Stephen Bradley – no, not the Shamrock Rovers' manager - Noble is about the true life story of Christina Noble, who founded the Christina Noble Children's Foundation in 1989.

It stars Deirdre O'Kane in the title role, Sarah Greene, Brendan Coyle, Mark Huberman and Ruth Negga, and is set in Vietnam in 1989, fourteen years after the end of the 20-year-long Vietnam war.

After a tough upbringing in her native Dublin, Noble decides to head to Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) to help the children of that beleaguered nation.



Soap Choice of the day

Coronation Street, 7.30pm & 8.30pm

In the first of tonight's double-bill, Sarah and Gary confront Mel at the tanning salon and beg her to tell the police all she knows.

Hoping to find some of Nathan's other victims, Sarah and Gary call at the drop-in centre where Yasmeen and Rana are working as volunteers.

As a despondent Sarah and Gary make to leave, they're distracted by two girls arguing. Sarah is taken aback to see that one of the girls is Shona.

In the later episode, Shona's return causes shockwaves on the cobbles around Weatherfield.

Best On Demand/TV Catchup

Friends from College, Netflix

A group of friends from Harvard played by Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max) and Jae Suh Park (Marianne) are facing their forties.

With interwoven and often complicated relationships with one another, this comedy deals with a tangle of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.

Hopefully it's also funny.

The whole of season one is available from today.

Today's Guilty Pleasure

First Night Of The Proms, 8.00pm, BBC Four

The BBC Proms 2017 kicks off in style tonight at London’s magnificent Royal Albert Hall, with Beethoven’s dramatic Third Piano Concerto performed by star soloist Igor Levit, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor Edward Gardner.

This opening concert of the world’s biggest music festival also includes a raucous new work by Tom Coult - St John’s Dance - the first of 13 world premieres at Proms 2017.

The music continues on BBC Two at 9.00pm with Harmonium, a dazzling choral work from American music titan John Adams, who celebrates his 70th birthday this year.
