The Line-Up Battle: ‘The Graham Norton Show’ VS ‘The Late Late Show’


If you were looking for an excuse to stay in tonight – look no further! 

The Graham Norton Show and The Late Late Show are both airing tonight, and their respective line-ups are unreal. You might be engaging in some channel flicking this evening….

The Graham Norton Show

The Graham Norton Show starts back this evening at 10.35pm on BBC1.

Graham’s first guest is *drum roll* … none other than teenage heart-throb Justin Timberlake! He will be on the show promoting his new film Trolls, with co-star and singing sensation Anna Kendrick.

If you thought he couldn’t possibly fit any more A-list stars on the couch of his, you would be wrong. Squeezing up beside Justin and Anna is Daniel Radcliffe!

Daniel is on the show to promote his two upcoming films; Imperium and Swiss Army Man.

The Graham Norton Show wouldn’t be complete without a bit of music, so Robbie Williams will be singing a few tunes.

The Late Late Show

The Late Late Show is definitely holding it’s own though…

Ryan will be chatting to Alexander Skarsgård, from True Blood and The Legend Of Tarzan. Skarsgård will be on the show promoting his new film, War On Everyone, with his co-star Michael Peña and the director John Michael McDonagh.

Ryan will be joined by author Jilly Cooper, who will be speaking about her new book Mount!. She will also be revealing to Ryan where she gets the inspiration for her racy novels. That will make for some interesting watching!

Former Ireland international Jason McAteer will also appear on the show to speak about his spiral into depression after he left his sporting career.

There will also have a political aspect to the show, with Kerry Deputy Michael Healy Rae chatting to Ryan ahead of the release of the first budget.

Francis Brennan, the At Your Service star, will also make an appearance, with music from Josh Christina, Smokie and Heroes in Hiding.

Catch The Late Late Show, RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
