Everything has a sell-by date, including talk shows. Now that 'The Late Late Show' and 'The Saturday Night Show' are on their summer break, could this be made permanent?

Since they went off air a few weeks ago, I have heard no cries of despair from a pining public.

Let's face it, the talk show format is dead. 'The Late Late Show' died when Gay Byrne left. As for 'The Saturday Night Show' it's so dull it makes the European parliament programme seem like riveting viewing.
