    Default Tonight with Vincent Browne to be aired in front of a live audience?

    Tonight with Vincent Browne is in discussions to have the programme aired in front of a live audience of 250 in the new TV3 studio. If this goes ahead will they have to bring its time forward so that the audience of that scale can get home at a reasonable hour on a worknight, or will it move to being a recorded programme?

    A bad move imo. You'll have special interest groups like the shinners taking all the seats, and only supporting shinner policies

    I'd prefer if they started reserving a place on the panel for a member of the public who isn't a member of a political party.

    The Frontline has an audience...

    One is enough... imo...

    Question time seems to work well. It is the only time that ordinary folk get to have a say to those in "power". I am hoping that this will work, but I cannot see Vinny with enough control to make the audience participate.

    All the parties do it.

    Ff used to stuff questions and answers with members. One of them used to have a great
    Line about voting fg all his life but never again etc etc.

    Might be worth a try but after the presidential debate audience producers may be wary
    of the mob.

    I suppose John McGurk, Glenna Lynch and the likes will be permanent features on the programme. And VB's favourite Mick Wallace, whom Vinnie urged to run in GE for the craic.

    With rounds of live ammunition instead of applause.

    Frontline is a joke. It is not a proper forum for debate. It is overly controlled, overly biased. The audience is packed with invited guests. While I understand the need for "control" the sheer protection of "political reps" from the ordinary citizen means Frontline is often a party political broadcast on the part of Terry Prune and the PR Gurus.
