I'm sure they said that about Love Island when it was axed in 2007.

I'm sure if Nightshift was made relevant to the Spotify generation, the revival would be a huge hit.

I expect the Autumn Schedule launch to include the following:

Ireland AM new presenter
Gogglebox Series 5
Red Rock (last 2 episodes)
Blood (Series 2)
The Restaurant (Series 13)
Livin With Lucy (rest of the 5 episodes they recorded last year)
Doctor In the House (Series 5)
To increase the amount of times Judge Rinder can be shown in a single day to 9 :l

And the usual ITV returnees of X Factors, Britain's Got Talent, I'm a Celeb, Love Island versions set in Aus, UK Winter, UK Summer, USA etc..

Bang on about the same Champions League, Europa League, Six Nations, Horse racing coverage.

Overall, I'm not expecting much. There has been very little homeproduced programmes in the past few months, with nothing in the papers about upcoming programmes. Lots dropped in the past few year with The Sunday Show, Red Rock, Clubhouse, Ireland's Got Talent, Pat Kenny alongside cutting back on T6OCS, Xpose and ending Bank Holiday editions of Ireland AM.

Watch all the videos of people going on romantic holidays in exotic locations you want on YouTube. The media obsession with Love Land is something else.

Please cease disrupting threads with discussion on a programme which aired very late at night on a channel which no longer exists and most people wouldn’t remember.

You may if you wish, start one (1) separate thread on it. If you get replies to it good luck, but I won’t be allowing it to continue in the form of a conversation with yourself if it doesn’t.

Otherwise consider the matter off topic for discussion

Not to name that other show explicitly, but think about it, a new music show would really benefit the Irish music economy. Irish filmmakers too. There are some really good music and film makers in this country. That "This Ain't No Disco" thing between Donal Dineen and Myles O'Reilly, if you haven't seen it, is really good; it's on YouTube for those who are interested. Same with the recent RTÉ One documentary Starboard Home; a film about Dublin with a great soundtrack from some or our finest music talent. A new similar show on VMT, not necessarily N********t, would be a good idea. There's a serious gap in the market for it.

Sadly, VMT is more interested in trashy reality TV shows.

I think sadly you could say that about most content on Irish TV. Virgin Media aren't too worried about the audience. It has continued to grow over the last number of months, largely eating into RTÉ's share of the audience.

Virgin Media will be a diet of Repeats, no clear identity for any of their channels. Mixing The Chase with Love Island, and nothing much else in between.

I remember when it used to show Doctor Who, maybe it could start showing it again? At least Doctor Who is a good show and not a trashy reality show.

Was the Europa League not on Virgin Sport this evening?
The Wolves game would have been a good watch.

Playoff round is not part of the central rights deal for the Europa League, even though it is for the Champions League.
