VM must have a really hard time with their home produced shows trying to attract any big guests on to them - Just look at how stretched the Late Late Show and Ray D'arcy Show are for big guests, and they are prime time huge shows for RTE - what chance does VM have for a daytime or early evening show?

You get the feeling VM are so desperate to be Ireland's version of ITV, the only problem is ITV daytime shows are based in London and can attract a huge variety of guests - VM in Dublin, no way possible.

I thought Late Late did well last weekend with John Bercow and the cast of Mrs Brown's Boys.

Again, Late Late is really strong with that line-up. I doubt there's anyone who wouldn't be interested in seeing at least one of those guests. The shocker for the Six O'Clock Show is they haven't got another VMTV presenter to pad for time!

To be fair, you're not comparing like for like there. It would be better to compare the Six O Clock Show to Today on RTE 1. Having said that it's a fairly strong line up for the Late Late this week, it's not always that good. On the other hand, no one complains about the guests on the Six O Clock Show because so few people are watching it.

Also, Kiefer Sutherland's listing should have Actor/Country Singer. His attraction as a guest is not because of his Country Music Career (of course that might change in the years to come)
