We all know the pressure that's on a night like New Year's, everybody feels like the perfect evening must be had but often it's just packed pubs, emotional drunks, and a resolution that you won't put yourself through the same ordeal next year.
So if you have decided on a quiet one curled up in front of the couch, or have even decided to just have a few close friends over, here's who you can ring in the New Year's with on the box.
Mrs Brown's Boys: Mammy's Gamble
RTE 1: 10.15pm
The second of Mrs Brown's Boys Christmas specials sees Agnes worried about her home following a spate of burglaries in the area. She gets Buster on board to fit a new alarm system on the house, but as you might predict there are a few teething problems with Buster’s state-of-the-art technology. That's not all of Agnes' worries though as she must face her old rival Hilliary Nicholson in the Poker final. Why? To win enough money so her son Dermot can set up a new business. Aw, sure she's a great mammy really.
Hey Ho, Let's Go
RTE 2, 10:30pm
No, it's not a documentary about The Ramones - which is what we initially thought when we saw this. Instead, Dermot Whelan leads a panel of comedians in this comedy / musical quiz show. So it's like the Lyrics Board? No. Not really. Although we'd like to see another revival of the Lyrics Board. Sort that out, RTE. John Colleary and Colin Murphy serve as team leaders with a number of special guests lined up for this opening show. And if you don't like, don't worry! There's a whole series on the way in 2015.
New Year's Eve Live
RTE 1: 10.55pm
Kathryn Thomas and Paddy McKenna will be counting down the last hour of the year live from The House of Lords, and bringing you into the new year with highlights from the 3 NYE concert, which will see Walking on Cars and Kodaline performing. Sure what else would you be doing on New Year's Eve. Oh, hang on a second, nevermind.
Rita and Me
Coronation Street's Barbara Knox has been playing Rita Tanner for an unbelievable fifty years, and has been as central to the soap as the Rovers Return in many ways. This one-hour special will celebrate all things Rita, featuring interviews with her fellow cast mates past and present, including her most famous partner in crime - Thelma Barlow, who played Mavis Wilton. Of course, we also meet her current shop buddy Norris, played by actor Malcolm Hebden, who irritates her no end on screen but turns out they are the best of friends in real life. Huge Corrie fan Paul O’Grady even interrupts filming on the set to congratulate Barbara - on behalf of Corrie fans everywhere - for five decades full of memorable on-screen moments.
And one to watch with the kids...
Frozen at Christmas
Channel 4: 8:00pm
It is literally mind boggling to get your head around just how big the movie Frozen has become, you can't go a day without hearing THAT song, parents were scrapping each other for the dolls in toy stores and you can guarantee there was something from the movie under nearly every kids tree this Christmas. This programme will take an in-depth look at what has become the most successful animated film of all time, chatting to the people who made it, those who wrote the catchy songs and how a seemingly ordinary Disney princess tale became the cultural phenomenon of 2014.
