Late Late Show

Am I the only person who feels embarrassed watching the Late late show. I always start off watching it normally but by the second or third item I have to leave the room and listen in from another room or do something else.

Mind you, I feel the same about other chat shows too but nothng as bad as LLs. Maybe I'm just weird?

Just don't watch it! This isn't North Korea, no one is making you.

The LLS should be called the flogabook show.

I know that - just wondering if anyone else has that reaction that's all. Only happens with chat shows especially LLS

I know what you mean . Some bits can be as cringey as a Bono speech , which makes me walk in and out of the room .

The poor ol Late Late, Ryan is stuck for things to say and his team stuck for people to invite on. Lets hope the toy show gives them all a chance to let their hair down.

Robbie Williams was gas to be fair to him. Not watching any other bit so can't really say.

The horse would probably be more interesting to listen to than the usual ex boy band members.

Seems like you are the only one watching it, will be interesting to see viewership figures, now that saorview has identified a lot of unaccounted for viewers.

Nigella Lawson was not bad, but she deserved a better interviewer. Tubs just seems not interested and runs through it.

My missus is an inveterate viewer of chat shows - and she was settling down to watch the LLS on my iPad ( we don't live in Ireland ). I protested that I had battles to fight and war to wage on P.ie, but to no avail. But after the interview with the lovely Amy, she threw it aside and went off muttering "why did I ever imagine I missed RTE or the LLS". And now she's opening her 2nd bottle of wine!

I think its the way the host behaves sometimes - remember Pat pulling the boots off some actress but I can't remember her name. Had to leave the room then. On my own I'm fine but if my family are there too, like you I keep walking in and out.

Sounds serious. Perhaps a telethon could be organised to raise funds for research into chat phobia and find a cure. Ryan Tubridy could host it.

Was it just me or was Amy's skirt so short I could tell the sex of her baby?
