    “for at least a minute of the show”

    any% of them could have been for 1 minute so

    waste of taxpayer money

      I thought RTÉ was entirely self-funded for the past couple of years. And with viewing figures like that, the toy show in particular must have earned a shed-load of money.

      some people just are like that in fairness…I have a brother in law just like him. unfortunately. only thing I know is there’s no substances in his picture atall atall…tho id imagine a sweep of the staff restroom facilities might reveal some interesting secrets like many a corporate palace

    Who cares? We are so starved of any entertainment or engagement from RTE people will tune in to this fluff in droves. It’s just more retailporn.

    It’s like the cigarette companies and pain killer pharmas all tying to get the kids hooked at an early age and addicted for life so that they need their hit every Friday night.

    It’s pretty much exactly the same strategy.

    Have to admit it is one thing that RTE do very well. Very entertaining and brings generations together.
