Pick of the Day
Tin Star, 9.00pm, Sky Atlantic & NOW TV
Tim Roth returns in the second season of this moody drama about Jim Roth, a troubled former London cop reinventing himself as a police chief near the Canadian Rockies.
The second season pick ups where we left off with the Worth family: Anna clutching Whitey’s gun; Jim (or is it his alter ego, Jack?) bleeding in the snow; Angela begging Jack not to die, for Anna’s sake. Horrified at what she’s done, Anna flees. As what he lives for threatens to fade away, Jack fights back.

Outback Truckers, 9.00pm, Discovery
This series focuses on Australian truck drivers who travel thousands of miles and take on some of the world's toughest terrain.
Tonight's episode finds trucker Lindsay having to take on the job of transporting 80,000 angry bees to a rainforest. What could possibly go wrong?
This is Us, 11.10pm, RTÉ One
The superb time-hopping family saga continues as a young Rebecca turns her nose at the role of housewife.
As fans saw in last week's episode, a man turned up at Rebecca's door just as Jack arrived for their second date. It turns out to be her high-school boyfriend Alan, returning three years after she declined his invitation to move to London.
Cold Feet, 9.00pm, Virgin Media Two
Mike Bullen's resurrected dramedy continues as Adam begins a journey of self-discovery that opens his eyes, as well as his heart, while Jenny grapples with her secret, and Pete is preoccupied with helping the troubled Evan.
Meanwhile, David struggles with the concept of being a kept man since Nikki's windfall, and Karen prepares for the twins' 18th birthdays.
Better Things, 10.00pm, BBC Two
This is a hugely enjoyable dramedy starring Pamela Adlon as Sam Fox, an actress who's also a single mother. If you can get over the fact that the now toxic Louis CK used to be involved, it's well worth a look.
Sam's latest acting work allows her to spend time with BFF Sunny and less-endearing time with Sunny's nasty husband Jeff. She also lands a date but their dinner together at her house is ruined by Grandma Phil's racism.
