Late Late fails to hit highs with view­ers

Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY COR­MAC BYRNE

THE sec­ond episode of The Late Late Show drew dis­ap­point­ing view­ing fig­ures – but num­bers are up from the se­ries opener. An av­er­age of 496,500 tuned in on Septem­ber 8 which is a hike of 23,500 on the pre­vi­ous week. But the au­di­ence num­bers still fall short of its reg­u­lar draw of 600,000. Last Fri­day’s line-up was led by Ire­land rugby star Sean O’brien while Anna May Mchugh and Mar­ian Keyes also joined the sofa for a chat with Tubs. A spokesman for RTE’S flag­ship show said: “The first two episodes of the new se­ries had shares in ex­cess of 40%. “No other Ir­ish show con­sis­tently de­liv­ers these share and view­er­ship fig­ures.”
