    The Tonight Show with Matt Cooper & Ivan Yates.
    Matt Cooper and Ivan Yates offer their unique take on the big stories of the day with a panel of guests. There is also a panel discussion covering the key issues in the news.

    So these are the lads who have been called upon to fill Vincent Browne's shoes.

    Vinny presented a great show for a number of years, yeah, it did get a bit stale towards the end but many of us enjoyed plenty of discussion and debate along the way.

    Over seven years of the Tonight With Vincent Browne Show, there were four Tonight With Vincent Browne Threads and almost 40,000 posts!

    I wonder will Matt & Ivan achieve a quarter of that engagement? I feel it's probably very unlikely but I wish them well.

    Did anyone not think it's a bit weird giving two guys who have a daily 2.5 and 3 hour current affairs radio show a TV version of it later that day :confused:

    I made the same point on the old Vinny B thread, we are in serious danger of getting overexposed to these guys and their opinions. Familiarity breeds contempt and all that.....

    The more I think about it the more bizarre it is.

    I suppose they're a safe pair of hands

    Is Ivan back on the airwaves?

    Ivan does the afternoon slot on Newstalk from 4-7pm

    Unfortunately, I think Vinny B is irreplaceable. Not a fan of either of the replacements either .


  • Registered Users Posts: 72,022 ✭✭✭✭ Atlantic Dawn


    I will give it a look this week to see what it's like.

    I would have liked it if Pat Kenny was presenting the show with Matt Cooper, as it would then have been Tonight with Pat and Matt.

    #PatandMatt is a Hashtag deserving a TV Show.

    There is a serious feel of Fr. Ted from that Hashtag :D

    What chance have young graduates or talent got in this closed shop of RTE, TV3, Kneestalk, etc. Same old dinosaurs since time began. Pathetic.

    I am dying to find out what nickname Kim will give Trump now.

    When I look at Matt Cooper I can see the Fairy Liquid Baby, I think it's Matt's hair and baby face.

    They should get Mary Wilson in to present with the two lads #IvanMattandMary

    I kinda like it so far, can't believe i'm watching, and Dunphy on the panel, how can this not be entertaining? RTE are just so sh*te


  • Registered Users Posts: 72,022 ✭✭✭✭ Atlantic Dawn


    I wish it was on at 10pm instead.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 1,480 ✭✭✭ bloodless_coup


    Seems a bit scripted / rehearsed


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,591 ✭✭✭✭ Lady Chatterton


    Ivan & Matt remind me of these two already :D

    Nine minutes in and we have a commercial break, I hate TV3.

    That wouldn't work, it would clash with Primetime & The Late Debate.

    'And coming up, Today FM's own, Al Porter!'

    Nitey nite.

    Think they're going for Kevin Magiure / Andrew Pierce on Sky News dynamic. Probably needs an intermediary as on sky as i can see them getting bogged down in the same circles of arguments week in week out when its just the 2 of them. At least so far, it isn't more of the same i suppose


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,444 ✭✭✭✭ Skid X

    Just thinking the same, how did I ever stay up watching this every night until Midnight? And then Flathan and the buckos doing the dodgy phone in shows from Hungary.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 2,962 ✭✭✭ Dr Crayfish


    It was on for 2 minutes and now what seems like a lifetime of ads ffs...

    "Orange man". America says No.

    Dunphy looks ready to explode.

    Time to pull the telly off the wall and throw it out the window


  • Registered Users Posts: 72,022 ✭✭✭✭ Atlantic Dawn


    Bring in some fordin builders instead if that's what it takes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,459 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Is TV3 part of the Denis O'Brien portfolio?

    Having two of his radio mouth pieces as hosts seems strange.


    Although I do like both something seems off.

    Wow Al is quite articulate and speaks better than most politicians

    It reminds me of RTE's mercifully short-lived Later with Finlay and Dunlop, back in the late '90s.
