Incestuous RTÉ chat shows

 

Madam, – I am not an avid viewer of what passes as a chat show on RTÉ television these days. But sometimes circumstances force me to have to sit through them. My request is simple: Could RTÉ please desist from having RTÉ people as guests on RTÉ shows?

I know we are living in straitened times, but I am starting to feel like I live in the RTÉ canteen. I need to hear some new ideas, some new anecdotes. Is it any wonder that we have a lack of emerging talent in the country? Television will eat itself. – Yours, etc,
