RTÉ must think their only audience is sweet old ladies.

Daniel O'Donnell and his own chat/music show......

You're A Star..... (the way the voting went in the last series, it must've been grannies voting - James Kilbane in the final two? A Daniel O'Donnell wannabe)

Late Late Show..... what about a show for younger people?

Hector's only funny in Irish. That Fools buy horses thingy really got up my nose.

Dont like him anymore.

I think RTE are conspiring with Xtra vision to take our hard earned cash by lowering the standard of tv once again.

is it just me or is Ryan Tubridy an annoying, opinionated, hypocritical w**ker????

He does my nut on the radio, at the start I thought he was funny but really he just belittles people and abuses people for laughs.... all the while sitting on his throne looking down on people....

your not alone, spud.

I also thought he was alright at first, thought he seemed to have some wit about him, but in reality, he doesnt, he is just a hypocritical and opinionated moron who will slag anyone to rub his ego, but cant take it when directed at him

Oooh that shows set in the place from where my dad hails from! So its worth watching Its not actually fictional either! The town exists. Although the show is set in a town a couple of miles away from kilinilskully or however its spelt!

Yeah, I read that in one of the local papers. Surprised me actually - I expected Killinaskully to be in the D'Un's world, near Glengooley (or maybe Bally :ninja: )

Louis said he won't be back. Let's rejoice!
With him gone we should be rid of the boybands and Johnny Logan wannabes.

Louis said "'Six' are going to be big." And where are they now? "Big in Norway", apparently. Maybe we should learn not to trust what Louis Walsh says.

If someone shot Dara O'Briain and Ryan Teleturbidy I would be very happy...

Jesus. Jesus Christ. Look at that line up. Seriously, were it not for Scrubs, Little Britain and the occasional Channel Four documentary, I'd just switch off the television and retreat to my DVD collection...

WTF? The last vaguely interesting thing RTE produced was The Island. I cannot remember the last time I watched RTE1, and NET2 I'll only watch if there's absolutely no alternative.

****e. Another year of it.

All the money goes towards paying for the sport (not that i'm complaining!)

I think RTE mess with there line up too much, programmes are always starting 10mins late or 30mins early! they aslo show good shows too late at night, CSI is on at 11pm so is law and order.

But i will say RTE show some good films. especially the late night ones.

so in conclusion
RTE are good sometimes but mess about too much

So..in conclusion, RTE caters for Sports Fans, Detective-show-loving-Insomniacs and retired Nuns. TV3 may have stupided up television for everyone, but they at least occasionally got something interesting, or made the effort.
