    It isn't a bad number for a late night chatshow but the advertising seems to have changed drastically over the last year or so. It used to get good advertisers but now its advertising seems to be low end of the market.

    The Vinstituencies was better than anything Pravda/RTE ever did and it really brought home to people what an absolute shower of sociopathic scumbags were in power. Pravda/RTE is just a government mouthpiece by comparison. The problemn over the last year or so is that it always seems to be Vinnie's own causes with his various friends and their rotating jobs descriptions but pushing the same agenda.

    The problem for Magill, no matter how good the journalism, is that the Irish market is a very small market. Phoenix does good journalism but it has an audience. Magill is likely to charge off on Vinnie's quixotic crusades and people might not want to pay to read that stuff. The publishing market in Ireland has changed massively and newspapers like the Irish Times and the Independent are on a slow trip to financial oblivion. The IT might be closer to Vinnie's politics but it has become a viewspaper (a mistake from the 1990s that really gathered pace in recent years) like the Guardian. The Dindo has its own problems and recently had to issue a profit warning.

    For a few moments I thought Vincent Browne had died, due to the tone of RTE's discussion of him this morning - but he is only retiring....

    We have followed him perhaps more closely than any others, there is a wealth of VB material here, not to mention the infamous "Browne Girls" thread.

    Last show tonight on TV3 - whether it can be reached on line is another question. TV3's website is just as chaotic as RTE's.

    Will have to watch the replay of the show later. Apparently they are trying to get Brendan O'Carroll to replace him.

    Come back Vincent

    I don't mind Cooper but Yates I find odious.

    It might be somewhat decent, I'll give it a chance.
