The later times presumably mean dwindling viewership, and RTE no longer shows ads advertising new episodes of the programme either. Lucky for us Irish fans, RTE is a taxpayer-subsidised company, so it isn’t in the habit of dumping foreign shows when they become less popular – it just sends them further and further into the night. So, looks like it’s stock-up-on-coffee time!
Irish politics is incredibly boring. And that’s speaking as an Irishman. There are ‘coalition governments’, and overly complicated proportional representation general elections, and endless ego battles in the Dail (parliament) between six different party leaders.
The Shenmue series is an incredibly powerful piece of work.
It’s called The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather even when Dan doesn’t present the programme (every few weeks he takes a week off), and then it’s funny, ’cause the recorded intro announces: ‘This is The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather’, and the replacement anchor comes on and he’s like: ‘Dan is off tonight, I’m John Roberts.’ Ha! What a loser!
