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.”

Too edgy?

Not edgy enough?

Wednesday, May 18.

On RTÉ One at 9.35pm.

Brendan O’Connor’s new series, Cutting Edge, will begin.

Alan, of Mind the Gap films, writes:

Each week, Brendan O’Connor will be joined by three regular panelists to cut into the week’s news from Ireland and around the world, in the style of a darkly comedic post mortem.

This g show will feature the big news stories, alongside the colourful nuggets that may have escaped the public’s attention.

As with all the best discussions there will be some good laughs and some fierce disagreements as the winners and losers of the week come under the penetrating gaze of the panel. This show is serious fun.

As for tickets, Alan adds:

We’re offering people the chance to witness the discussions first hand. For a chance to be part of the live audience and see the action at its closest, send us an email at tickets@mindthegapfilms.com. Tickets are free. Audience members must be 18 or over.
