It’s the season finale of the excellent Mr Mercedes, while there’s a new Mexican drama and a documentary about Muslim marriage.
Pick of the day
Mr Mercedes, 10.15pm, RTÉ One
As Stephen King adaptations go, this is proving to be one of the better of recent times. And Brendan Gleeson has been brilliant as potty-mouthed retired cop Bill Hodges.
Already sure of a second season, it’ll be interesting to see if there’s resolution in tonight’s tenth episode and season one finale. Last week’s penultimate one certainly set things up just nicely.
When another murder victim is discovered, suspicions about Brady are confirmed. As the police prepare for another massacre, Hodges fears for the safety of those he loves.

Mr Avila, 11.05pm, Channel 4
The latest from Walter Presents is a very promising dark crime drama from Mexico.
Mr Avila tells the story of a middle-class family man who is a life insurance salesman, husband and father, but leads a double life as a hitman for hire in a criminal organisation.
At first glance, Avila's life is no different from that of any other citizen in a big city. But creating this illusion of normality has not been easy, and preserving it is about to become even harder.
In Spanish with English subtitles. Here's the trailer without subtitles, but you'll get the drift:
Drugsland, 11.40pm, BBC One

The Truth About Muslim Marriage, 10.00pm, Channel 4
Myriam François presents the results of a ground-breaking Channel 4 survey.
Among its findings is that many Muslim women in Britain are unaware that their religious marriages are not recognised in British law, so they don't have the same rights and protections afforded to others.
The programme also looks at why some women may prefer to skip a civil ceremony, explores attitudes to polygamy, and hears from academics, lawyers, imams and a group of Muslim women campaigning to update marriage law.
Hidden Money Makeover, 10.00pm, TLC
Classic TLC transformation-type reality show in that presenter Jill Martin and handyman Gage Cass help homeowners turn their clutter into cash, while also making their eyesore living spaces into aesthetically-pleasing homes.
