Late Late Late… meh

So, the Late Late came back last night. And I only just caught up with it on the RTÉ Player today. And yes, I know that it’s 6am on Sunday now, but this is coming through to the end of my internal clock’s cycle, so it seems like it was yesterday and today. Anyway, I caught up with the show, and there is one thing I must admit – I actually liked it…

While beforehand, and for the majority of the start of the show, I was still seeing Tubridy as a tosser; it subsided quite quickly during the intense grilling of Biffo (aka Brian Cowen aka an Taoiseach aka He Who Is Supposed To Be In Charge Around Here), before fading completely when Saoirse Ronan was on. I must say, he really does fit the role very well, a lot better than the Plank (i.e. Pat Kenny) used to.

So, after clearing the high bar set by the Pl- no, sorry by Gay Byrne that the Plank never managed to clear – how consistent will Tubridy be? He better hope for the life of him that he manages to keep the nation satisfied with the show, otherwise I think the flash mobs will be all over him. Or we’ll have to start gatecrashing the show again.

Hey, I actually managed to find some decent videos on YouTube. Only took about half an hour of mixing around keywords…


Now, how’s he going to handle the Toy Show...?
