That was one tough week that we just endured but fear not, the end is in sight and soon you'll be perched in front of your television with two great shows to fight over.

Yes, The Late Late Show and The Graham Norton Show are back on our screens tonight as they both battle for the best first show of 2018 and it's going to be a close call. 

The Late Late Show - RTÉ One 9:35pm

Kathyrn Thomas - the host of the hit Irish show 'Operation Transformation' will be on the couch to discuss a new season of OT as well as her own personal life.

Another huge Irish hit that's returning to our screens also this year is First Dates Ireland and Ryan will get to meet some of the couples who have found love on the show.

There will be a discussion on Body Positivity among women featuring Irish model Tia Duffy, Dundalk Woman and founder of an online Body Positivity site Sarah Tyrell and Plus size model and winner of Canadian reality series Fashion Hero, Stacey Dineen.

Broadcaster Valerie Cox will talk about life after her husband was hit with herpes viral encephalitis and will also discuss the health system in Ireland. 

Celebrity hairstylist, Trudy Hayes, chats about her transformation and battle back after two major kidney transplants while Ailbhe and Izzy Keane will discuss their 'Izzy Wheels' project and how they aim to turn wheelchairs into fashion statements.  

There is also music from Patrick Feeney and Hermitage Green.

The Graham Norton Show - BBC One 10:35pm 

Graham's first show of the year is a 'best of' where he tells everyone and anyone who wants to feature on his show in the New Year how to be a 'good guest'. 

You may not have thought it but Norton has rules and if you don't follow these rules when on the show, you might not get a call back... 

Ricky Gervais, Miriam Margolyes and Dame Julie Walters are some of the guests who will star in tonight's show.
