Disappointed on so many levels that #cuttingedgerte is not coming back in #rtenewseason. I know how hard Brendan and everyone @MindtheGapFilms worked to keep it relevant and interesting. People STILL come up to me in the street to say how much they enjoy it. That’s rare.

The 49-year-old is said to be “stunned” after station bosses dropped his Cutting Edge show despite strong ratings and an IFTA award under his belt.
An RTE spokesman yesterday told the Irish Sun: “Cutting Edge is taking a rest for the moment.
“We are working on other projects with Brendan, which will hopefully see him back on screen in 2020.”
But a show insider told us Cutting Edge “won’t be back” on RTE screens.
They added: “If RTE don’t have the money to make Cutting Edge this year, it’s unlikely they’ll have the cash to make it in 2020 when they’ll have even less money.”
Not edgy enough?
We may never know
Yesterday: Anything On?
