Tonight's top TV tips include the return of US drama The Blacklist, some more new looks in The Style Counsellors, new shows hosted by Mel Giedroyc and Alan Carr, and the concluding part of 54 Days: America and the Pandemic . . .

Pick of the Day

The Blacklist, 9.00pm, Sky One & NOW TV

We’re up to season eight now, which is a hugely impressive milestone for a show that seems to be held together by James Spader’s scenery-chewing as it's as crazy as a QAnon conspiracy theory.

This time around, with his back against the wall, Raymond Reddington (Spader) faces his most formidable enemy yet: Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone).

Aligned with her mother, infamous Russian spy Katarina Rostova, Liz must decide how far she is willing to go to find out why Reddington has entered her life and what his endgame really is.

The fallout between Reddington and Keen will have devastating consequences for all that lie in their wake, including the Task Force they helped to create.

Don't Miss

The Style Counsellors, 8.30pm, RTÉ One

Eileen and Suzanne create a new look for a single mother from Drogheda, who lost her job in the hotel industry due to the pandemic.

30-year-old Andrea (below) feels she has fallen into a bit of a fashion rut. She would like help to boost her confidence to help find a new job and maybe even start dating again.

Like so many people in these pandemic times, if she’s not wearing pyjamas, its leggings and tracksuit pants. "I’ve lost any sense of style," she admits. "I don’t go with the trends. I just slip on whatever is closest and head out."

Understandably, she would like help to boost her confidence and set her up clothes-wise to help get back on track.

Fargo, 10.30pm, TG4

As the saga continues, Josto teaches Gaetano a lesson about leadership, Ethelrida does what she believes is right, and Loy decides to make a deal when he finds himself backed into a corner.

New or Returning Shows

Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable, 10.00pm, Dave

This new show sees comics and celebrities compete to convince Mel Giedroyc that they are the most Unforgivable person in the room.

To do this they will have to dredge up their most outrageous sins, lies, legal transgressions and morally bankrupt behaviour.

In each episode three celebrities come clean and regale tales of their most despicable deeds and uncharitable behaviour as they are probed by host Mel and her sinful sidekick Lou Sanders for all the dastardly details, to reveal their dark underbellies.

First up, Mel and Lou are joined by Graham Norton, Desiree Burch and Alex Brooker.

The Art of Architecture, 7.00pm, Sky Arts & NOW TV

The series returns with more looks at some of the world’s most significant feats of architecture in the world, beginning with the Bee’ah Headquarters situated in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.

Inspired by the form of the sand dunes from which it emerges, Beeah’s new headquarters is a feat of architectural ingenuity in design and a model for sustainability in execution.

Fully powered by renewable energy, the building stands out in its optimum use of resources, while becoming one with the magnificent desert, through the fluidity of its composition.

Hunting Hitler: The Final Chapter, 9.00pm, Sky History & NOW TV

Ex-CIA agent Bob Baer and his team back in the 'situation room' explore how, undaunted by their defeat in World War II, the Nazis planned for the rise of the Fourth Reich to continue their reign of terror.

Declassified documents show that the Nazis were preparing the ground for a Fourth Reich through use of sleeper cells and a network of financiers and secret allies.

New information reveals how these plans were much further advanced and more mature than previously thought.
