Brendan O’Carroll as Mrs Brown

All Round to Mrs Brown’s.

On Saturday night, at 9.15pm.

Tara O’Brien, of RTE, writes:

RTÉ One today announced that Brendan O’Carroll’s brand new chatshow All Round to Mrs Brown’s is joining its Saturday night line up. Followed by The Ray D’Arcy Show, Saturday nights on RTÉ One will deliver a one-two punch of knock-out entertainment.

Fans of Finglas’s most famous granny can expect a mix of chat and general mayhem as daughter Cathy (Jennifer Gibney) interviews a host of celebrities overseen by the inimitable Agnes Brown (Brendan O’Carroll). The result promises to be an entertainment extravaganza full of celebrity guests, audience fun, frolics and outrageous shenanigans.

The six-part All Round to Mrs Brown’s will be simulcasted with the BBC on RTÉ One this Saturday 25 March at 9.15pm. Episode one will feature supermodel icon Pamela Anderson; Judy Murray, the mum of tennis star Andy; and Louis Walsh, plus music from James Blunt. And lots of surprises.

Staying in tonight?

The Works Presents: Liam Cunningham takes place at 11.15pm on RTÉ One.

RTÉ writes…

On tonight’s episode of The Works Presents… John Kelly interviews Liam Cunningham and the Game of Thrones actor has some stern words for people who deliberately spoil the show, referring to them as “low lifers”.

Cunningham tells Kelly: “In Spain we were being live streamed while we were filming, from drones. Everything we’ve done has been infiltrated which is terrible. It can appear like we are being precious about it, and it’s not. One of the great things about the show is these bizarre surprises. I’ve seen these cynical critics going ‘oh my god, did you see that last week?’ Suddenly the inner child comes out in them because they have been outwitted and they love it and so does the audience. It’s what we pay for. I like it as well, when I am reading the scripts I go ‘oh you’ve gotta be, you’re shitting me’ and I love that.”

    I love that RTE don’t give up when they get turned down by tennis players – they ask for their mums instead.

      Well, there’s definitely a job for Tara O’Brien at Crone Communications polishing turds – and as for Cunningham and Game of Thrones!! Get over yourself.

    Didn’t RTE get a new boss last year? New brush was going to sweep clean. Unfortunately the brushing was in the RTE canteen and just swept up a lot of the usual RTE chatshow stalwarts, and put them on the LLS.
    Brendan O Carroll- a comedian that has to rely on swearing and dirt gets a show. No doubt at some stage he will inform us (as he does) of his charitable donations. No hiding behind anonymity for him people.

      You do realise Mrs Brown’s Boys is a massive international hit right?

      Also, Pamela Anderson, Judy Murray, Louis Walsh, James Blunt. Not exactly RTE Canteen stuff.

      1. Birneybau2

        Supermodel Icon Pamela Anderson.

        A new one on me.

        I could go down the Bill Hicks’ model route but I won’t.

      It did. She is selling off a good swathe of RTE’s land in Donnybrook. She’ll get the job done, but I guess it takes time in an organisation like that. She’s looking to make 200 redundancies as well.
      I know her personally: she’s fab.

    So now we have 4 chat shows on RTE that refuse to challenge the status quo and promote the avant-garde.
    Hurray for Broadsheet on The Telly!!!

    1. Bertie Blenkinsop

      With 290 views?

      That’s a bit like saying you’re challenging Ed Sheeran’s chart dominance by whistling in the shower Johnny.

      1. Johnny Keenan

        Agreed Bertie.
        But once we challenge the need for greed we get to the point of what is really interesting.
        Sorry if that sounds profound.

        I’m off my hits!

    1. How much is this costing us? Brendan O’Carroll does NOT come cheap these days.
    2. Caroline Aherne barely in the ground and we’re ripping off Mrs Merton

    1. Johnny Keenan

      My sentiment exactly Bort.

      When I saw this I knew O’Carroll was going to lift Mrs Merton format and pass it off as his own.
      He will try to say that he is not by saying something like ‘I’m not even asking the questions ya fuppin ejit, hahahaha!!’

      Caroline Aherne was a comedy genius who played an elderly innocent lady with hilarious and cutting questions.

      Brendan O’Carroll is a pub hack who plays a dirty ole granny, that relies on double entendres for cheap laughs.
      The lowest form of comedy.
