Poll: Should the Late Late Show be scrapped?

RTE says it is happy with the ratings for the first show of the new season – but do you think it’s time for a change on Friday nights?

RTE1′S FLAGSHIP CHAT show dropped almost 200,000 viewers between the end of its last season and the first show last Friday night.

An RTE spokesperson told Ken Sweeney in the Irish Independent that the station is satisfied with the ratings – 650,000 people tuned in last Friday to see host Ryan Tubridy interview Sinead O’Connor and an excitable Cuba Gooding Jr. The viewing figure for the last show of last season was 832,000.

Is it time to draw the curtains on the Late Late Show or should we hold onto the longest-running chat show in the world? Have your say here:

Poll Results:

Keep the Late Late - but the format should see a major overhaul (1372)
Get rid of it altogether (1200)
Keep the Late Late as it is - it still commands a large audience (517)
I don't know (87)
