    Mac Savage was only on a few weeks ago and had nothing interesting to say, why bring him back on? The guy is a bit of a looper……… I’ll only watch it for the Derek tribute….then its back to scrubbing me kacks….

      I like McSavage’s unpredictability on live TV. And the fear in O’Connor knowing he hasn’t a hope of handling him if he ventures off piste. McSavage has a lot to lose by misbehaving in RTE but my impression is that he’s self-destructive enough not to care. Beats the usual bland marketing fare but not enough to entice me to watch.

    Lets just ignore how disappointing a national broadcaster you are, shall we,RTE.No,let’s not.
