Staying In Tomorrow?



Roz Purcell

On The Late Late Show.

Sarah Whiteacre writes:

Following 30 years in Toronto, tenor Colm Wilkinson is back on home soil and joins host Ryan Tubridy to take a look back at his glistening career, as well as treating us to a song.

After weeks of canvassing and debate, the RTÉ/TG4 Exit Poll results will be announced live in studio following the close of polls by David McCullagh and Páidí Ó Lionaird

Author and influencer Roz Purcell spent years basing her self-worth on how much she weighed, but it took her sister Rachel to be diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia for her outlook to change. Roz and Rachel join Ryan to discuss the events that led to this realisation…

Following his retirement from club and international football back in March, former Ireland player Jonathan Walters joins Ryan to chat about how the death of his mother at a young age had such an influence on his career…

Inter-county referee David Gough is the only openly gay referee working with the GAA, and David joins Ryan to discuss what it was like to come out in the sporting world…

Music will be from The Coronas and Ryan will be chatting with Danny from the band about their new single and upcoming tour of Ireland.

The Late Late Show, on RTÉ One tomorrow at 9.35pm.

    No one is obviously going to say it but that’s a very decent lineup for a local chat show. obviously there’s no huge mega stars on the bill but it ticks a fair amount of boxes and isn’t the rte canteen

      I wish they hadn’t said glistening regarding Mr Wilkinson’s career. Sounds a bit jism-y.

      Well, I wasn’t go to say it but I did wonder who needs to know who’s on the LLS every week? Is there any overlap between the Broadsheet and LLS demographics? (As they might say in the morkeshing department…)

      1. rotide

        The LLS sends out the press release, BS publishs it.

        It’s been like that since the start of the site basically

          There’s always at least a few guaranteed snarky tubridy comments, another couple giving out about the tv license, and one defending rte.

    It’s just soul destroying to see loss-making RTE blow €495,000 a year on this mediocrity, when, at the same time, you can switch across for free to see a proper Irish interviewer razzing world-class celebrities. The LLS is struggling to get 350,000 viewership, it’s lost in a sea of superior Friday night programming and God forbid you have to watch it with your parents (who are its target audience), it’s more toe-curlingly cringey than that time you were all together watching the actors bumming each other in the Christmas night movie.

      1. Brother Barnabas

        born in clondalkin, which is dublin

        raised in bandon, which is the dublin part of cork

          1. Bertie Blenkinsop

            I think he just gives them a dig out when they’re rushed off their feet….

          ‘the Dublin part of Cork’

          Hmmm. Nope.
          Nice try, though, Jackeen.

          1. Papi

            Kinsale and Blackrock Road are the Dublin parts of Cork. Douglas used to have a smidgin til the commoners (people without pastel jumpers on their shoulders) arrived.

        2. Vanessa the Holy Face of Frilly Keane

          You might be right there Brudder
          raised in Bandon, which is the Dublin part of Cork

          When I was a young Langer we’d often hear
          Bandon, where even the pigs are Protestant

          That the Jackeens would be twinned with the town would make perfect sense alright

    1. rotide

      You’re right eoin, the LLS should absolute compete with the Graham Norton Shows budget. No reason why the two aren’t comparable.

    The Coronas are presumably still in the building from the last time they were on.

    If anyone was in any doubt about the awesome power of the LLS, they should know that Stefanie Pressner’s book which she plugged last week has stormed the Irish book charts and is now at #19, having sold 321 copies in the week after the LLS. Don’t spend the royalties all at once Stefi and remember Starbucks have a loyalty scheme, buy 6 coffees, get one free!
