Yesterday was the launch of TV3’s Autumn programme schedule at the Aviva Stadium. With less than two weeks to go before the Rugby Wolrd Cup 2015, which will in fact be covered by TV3, the Aviva Stadium seemed like the perfect location.

However the channel will be broadcasting so much more than just the RWC. In fact they have popular and much love and watched acquisitions like X Factor, Celebrity Big Brother, Downton Abbey, Britain’s Got Talent are now all exclusive to the channel, making TV3 the home of entertainment. Channel 4’s ground-breaking series The Undateables will also debut on TV3 this autumn.

Underpinning TV3’s strong daytime and primetime schedule will be a concentrated focus on home-produced, engaging and relevant programmes and documentaries. Shows like the brand new heart-warming Ireland’s Animal Rescue, Doctor In The House, Adoption Stories, Geriatric Mums, Thelma’s Communion Girls, Ireland’s Problem Pets, Conor Pope’s Dodgy Dealers, A Rough Guide to the Future, presented by Jonathan McCrea, a new documentary strand called Disclosure, The Joy, Donal MacIntyre Assassins: Paid to Kill and lots more.

But if you want to look at the weekly plan, it all sounds very appealing for those early evenings creeping up on us. Your Mondays will be hard hitting crime and current affairs while Tuesday nights will be emotional thought provoking television. Drama will be order of the day on Wednesdays while TV3 will own Food and Lifestyle on Thursday nights with the return of the hit series The Restaurant and The Great Irish Bake Off, plus the brand new Great Irish Menu.

New faces include Brian Ormond who will host the new international format Wishlist, which sees couples playing to win the prizes of their dreams visualised in studio on a large LED floor. The show will air in the New Year and promises to be compelling viewing. Joining The Great Irish Bake Off team will be Irish food writer Lilly Higgins. Pamela Flood will present a brand new TV3 series called Geriatric Mums and former Liverpool legend Graeme Souness will join TV3’s expert Champions League analysis team
