Operation Transformation, RTE One, Thursday 8.30pm

Michelle makes an emotional visit to Leanne to see her baby.

The Help, RTE One, Wednesday 9.35pm

Tale Taylor's Oscar-nominated drama is set in the Deep South in the early 1960s and stars Eugenia 'Skeeter' Phelan, an aspiring writer who decides to document the shameful treatment of black maids who act as nannies for wealthy white women who can't be bothered raising their own children. With Viola Davis, Jessic Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Billons, Sky Atlantic, Tuesday 9pm

After the screw-turning tension of the season one finale, Billions shows its confidence and class at the beginning of the new run by taking a step back from the cliff edge and allowing us to catch up with the characters.

We last saw US Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) physically facing off against billionaire hedge fund owner Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Damian Lewis) in the ruins of Axe Capital's offices which Axe had torn apart in the fear that Chuck had bugged the place. Chuck had got inside Axe's head, and with Wendy (Maggie Siff) no longer working as Axe's in-house therapist (and having also left Chuck, her husband) it was hard to see how this spiralling and obsessive battle of egos was going to end in anything but Axe's eventual downfall.

Six Nations Rugby, RTE Two, Saturday 4.30pm

Ireland go into their first home match of this year's Six Nations tournament in second place in the table, having lost their opening tie in Scotland and then routed Italy in Rome. Nine tries and nine conversions in Rome was a good day at the office. The challenge in the Aviva Stadium this weekend will be much more robust and physical with a massive French team in the way. The fitness and selection of Jonathan Sexton will be a major talking point in the lead up to the action.

Operation Transformation, RTE One, Thursday 8.30pm

This year's five leaders have come a long way over the last eight weeks or so and last weekend jointed 5,000 walkers, joggers and runners on the 5k challenge in the Phoenix Park. In this final episode of the show, the last two leaders will take to the scales for the final time to see how they've done, Kathryn Thomas will look back at some of this year's highlight, and the Dublin Fire Brigade will be along to present a silver pin to the leader who impressed them the most.
