Itís amazing how wound up some people get about Ryan Tubridy. Like really annoyed about him and even a bit of hatred. Whatís the big deal?  Donít watch him if you donít like him.  Thereís are plenty of channels.

The reason people get wound up is because The Late Late Show is a much loved institution and people hate to see it in poor hands. It would be akin to finding out that Honeysuckle had been sold and the new owner was using her to plough fields

Even with years of experience in the Late Late show hot seat he always came across as forced/fake personality and uncomfortable in his style of interviewing and presenting the show.

In comparison to patronizing Gay Byrne and wooden Pat Kenny I thought he was much better. The bar was low. I think he does a great job of the toy show. Imagine Miriam O Callaghan doing the toy show ffs.

A more comedic light entertainment approach is needed for this show.

Cut the show  to an hour or 1  hour 15.  Quality not quantity.

Have less dreary   issues discussed

Most interviews on TLLS  I canít wait to  finish.  With tommy tiernan , I  donít want most interviews to end.

At least Gay Byrne had a certain amount of charisma about him. I agree about Pat very wooden.

I couldn't stand Tubridy, hated his fakeness with a passion. But the Tommy Tiernan show grates me an awful lot too. The first few times it was grand but not every interview should descend into a tortured examination of the meaning of life.

The LLS is live and longer.
The Tiernan show is edited and much shorter. So of course it's sharper.

The LLS is a hard gig to pull off. A 2 hour live show is a big enough challenge but the content varies wildly from light and fluffy to people who have lost children or are dying from something, and everything in between. It also has to get "names" to attract people to watch who otherwise wouldn't bother and it's clearly difficult to get names all year round, hence we have repetition in the guest list. It's not all Tubs' fault - he's great with children but poor with sportspeople as sport in general seems to have passed him by for some reason. Good luck to whoever takes it over (likely to be a woman).

Tiernan's show has to be edited as there is always a chance of controversy.

TLLS can be fairy harrowing alright. The one Kenny done with the GAA man with swollen blood, that was very sad but probably his best moment.
