    Coming soon to RTE1 (probably in March) in the slot currently filled by Tommy Tiernan is 'Angela Scanlon's Ask Me Anything'

    This has an 8 week run and will feature '“surprises and unexpected revelations for the guests, as they all agree to be asked, absolutely anything” and more importantly Angela is "“trying to have a house kitten on set (ginger obviously)”.

    My AMA question is.....Angela what did you have to do to get a job in RTE ahead of Gerry Ryans kid.

    They really don't want to put Ray D'Arcy back on TV it seems.

    In fairness, that's not hard to do. Tubridy is just an imbecile when it comes to interaction with people.

    The chat here is just flowing, no cue cards, no misery, no death etc...

    Only criticism is that the people in the audience at the tables need some drinks and snacks!

    It's not bad for an opening episode, was expecting Martin Compston to be via Zoom, great he was there in person. If only Jim Corr would be allowed on, he would have lots of comment on the current world order, I expect Trump's new social network will allow him on.

    Maybe it's the mediocrity of turbidity and d'arcy, giving me low expectations, but I'm pleasently surprised this isn't complete cack.

    In all fairness, you're setting 'the bar' fairly low there................mind you, that Pamela Anderson interview with Darcy was comedy gold.

    Now that you mentioned it....Mrs Mc Carthy are transfixed by the empty/ clear tables

    On the scale from Darcy to Tommy Tiernan where does Angela sit



  • Posts: 0 ✭✭✭ Eason Broad Flower


    Well, obviously Darcy is the lowest common denominator, Tommys show is a totally different animal to Angeles gig so I would say they're on a 'par'

    Looks to be pre-recorded a week plus in advance, they showed next weeks guests in the preview.

    She's always very likeable, so easy with the camera

    I like Angela Scanlon and enjoyed the show. The guests were very likeable unlike the vacuous insufferable Amy Huberman who'll be on the next show.

    I think rte haven’t the heart to drop tubridy for some reason, he’s not even an employee



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,391 ✭✭✭ FGR


    Shame it's not live on the telly.



    God I knew I wouldn't like that show from the first time he said that..



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,022 ✭✭✭ Brock Turnpike


    Didn't make it past halfway of the Sharon Corr interview.


    Pros:

    It's not Tubs.

    It's not D'arcy

    Guests don't seem to be on purely to flog something

    It's not Tubs

    Angela Scanlon is a good presenter


    Cons:

    For a show that has had such a long lead in, they seemed to be really struggling for stuff to talk to the guests about i.e. bringing Martin Compton's wife into the conversation and showing them kissing. Very cringe.

    They went with the "tell us how great Ireland is" schtick with MC.

    Sharon Corr a very uninspiring guest imo. RTE seem to love getting the Corr sisters on, despite the fact they haven't been relevant for a long time in terms of their music.


    I won't be setting aside time to watch this on a weekly basis as I just find it very "meh".

    searched 'Angela Scanlon' and came across a thread called 'Sack the stylist, again and again' ... but it was locked...


    edit: she just mentioned "I was a stylist, back in the day..."



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,977 ✭✭✭ Icsics


    This show is surprisingly watchable…but Kielty tells that story about flying to LA for Deeleys birthday everytime he’s on anything!



  • Registered Users Posts: 153 ✭✭ Dynomutt


    Dreadful frocks on the host and guests aside, this programme seems to have the least telegenic audience possible.
