Brendan Gleeson stars in new US drama Mr Mercedes, while Bridget & Eamon, Living with Lucy and Ploughing Live all return. It's busy night on the box!

Pick of the day

Mr Mercedes, 10.15pm, RTÉ One

One of several TV adaptations of Stephen King books, this promises to be quite entertaining as it's been adapted for TV by David E Kelly, the brains behind a variety of great shows, most recently Big Little Lies.

Two years after retiring, former homicide detective Bill Hodges (played by Brendan Gleeson) is still haunted by his last case, a massacre that left sixteen people dead. When the demented culprit begins to torment Hodges, he is compelled to revisit the case.

The serial killer taunts him with a series of lurid emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially criminal, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he can strike again.

New tonight

Ploughing Live, 7.00pm, RTÉ One

Presented by Marty Morrissey and Aine Lawlor, the three part series is coming live from Europe's biggest outdoor event, the National Ploughing Championships in Tullamore, Co Offaly.

Schizophrenia: the Voices in My Head, 10.00pm, RTÉ2

In a first for Irish TV, young people speak openly about what it’s like to live with such a severe mental health disorder and struggle with delusional thoughts and the internal voices that are so associated with schizophrenia.

Viewers will see these young people at their happiest and darkest moments. As one contributor says: "Thirty years ago I would have been locked up, medicated up to my eyeballs and abandoned in some institution, but that is changing."

Dream House, 8.00pm, TV3

Anna Daly and Darren Kennedy go inside some of the blingest houses on the market to get a sneak peek at how the other half lives. Or other 1%, really.

At Alexandria, there's a standoff that ends up in a gun fight, with the unexpected arrival of Kingdom and Hilltop fighters. As ever, expect a high body count.

Quacks, 10.00pm, BBC Two

This period medical comedy's kind of come and gone without drawing much attention to itself.

Robert’s rival, the famous, suave French surgeon Patrice DuPont is due to perform surgery on a very prestigious patient: Dr Hendrick.

Patrice makes John a tempting offer to join him, and Robert - to his disgust - finds he must work with Patrice as his assistant.

When disaster strikes, will the surgeons be able to save Dr Hendrick? Will any of them even want to?

Jerry Before Seinfeld, Netflix

Now this is a must-see. In a special that blends live stand-up with a personal retrospective, legendary comic Jerry Seinfeld returns to the New York comedy club that launched his career back in the late 1970s/early 80s.

His act fills up about 50 minutes of the special's hour-long running time, while a mixture of home movies, archive recordings and newly-filmed pieces around Manhattan make up the rest.

Seinfeld's set is a combination of old and new jokes, many of them revolving around Seinfeld's recollections of his childhood and apprenticeship years.

Despite amassing a fortune rumoured to be more than half-a-billion dollars, Seinfeld still loves playing live, but usually in front of massive crowds, so it's a rare treat to see him in a club environment.

Living with Lucy, 10.00pm, TV3

Possibly the most up-for-it personality on Irish TV, Lucy Kennedy returns with a new run of the show where she shacks up with some well-known head and sees how they live on a day-to-day basis.

Lucy's host in this opening episode is hurling legend Davy Fitzgerald, and she heads to Sixmilebridge in Clare, where Davy is living with his partner Sharon and son in a palatial mansion complete with his man cave and juke box.

Lucy arrives in the midst of Davy’s eight-week ban while Wexford are getting ready for a championship game against Laois. From hurling lessons to yoga lessons Davy and Lucy share a weekend of sporting shananigans.

Here's a classic from her (unpleasant) time with Callum Best:
