New tonight

The Tonight Show, 11.00pm, TV3

The retirement of Vincent Browne left a major hole in TV3's current affairs coverage as his weeknight discussion programme was essential viewing for those hardwired for news.

But the post-VB period begins tonight as Matt Cooper and Ivan Yates co-host this new show, which goes out at the same time from Tuesday to Thursday.

The promise is that they'll be tacking all the big issues across the political, sporting and cultural divides, discussing the stories with expert panellists and special guests. And even have a few laughs along the way.

Doctor Foster, 9.00pm, BBC One

Any fears that fans might have had about running after a superb first season that seemed to leave things done and dusted proved unfounded with last week's return.

Suranne Jones is delightfully OTT in the lead role of Gemma Foster, and she's now angrier than ever and dead nuts to level the score with her ex-husband as he's returned to town with his new wife in tow, and expecting all to be forgiven.

This week Gemma attempts to fight back after the fallout from Simon’s return. Reeling from the repercussions, she scrambles to uncover his secrets and find out what is going on with their son Tom.
