I think that the show took a few weeks off around this time last year. Few, if any, noticed.
Yea, I seem to remember that.

Its crazy they schedule this before the blue shirt twins, why not put it on a Monday when we are blue shirt twin free?

Or even better, scrap Pat and the blue shirt Twins and find another Vincent Browne!

Probably need the advertising revenue and there's a hope that viewers will be too tired to switch channels when the two Dinnies come on later.

I think that Vinnie was unique and though he was very good, he became completely PC over the last few years.

Didn't return until February 2017 after the 2016 Christmas break. Nobody really seems to have noticed either. Perhaps TV3 might cancel it this year.

With the TV3 rebrand later in the year to Virgin 1,2,3 I wonder if they will keep Pat and the other two?

The last Broadcast was 15th November 2017

Did that "Christmas" Break in 2016 start at the same time as the last Broadcast in 2017?

Was there a Christmas Break or any kind of Break announced in 2016?

Sorry about all the Questions j but TV3 really should have let the public know.

If they could replace Tonight with the two Dinnies, and The Pat the Plank shows with something that gets better viewing figures, they would. The Tonight With Vincent Browne show was a cult classic but it had a loyal following. The Two Dinnies does not and it seems to have been losing the audience built up by Vinnie. What idiot thought that putting the ultra-PC Matt Magina and his multicoloured shirts on as a TV talkshow host would be a good thing? He is boring. People are sick and tired of all that Politically Correct bullsh*t. The pattern of his shirts is probably more interesting. If people want that PC rubbish, they can watch Pravda/RTE. (And fewer do as their viewing figures have their own problems.) Yeats can actually carry the show on his own. If TV3 wants ratings, replace Pat the Plank with Kevin Myers. He will irritate a lot of people into watching just to be offended and TV3 would get an increase in viewing figures.

Not sure about any announcement. The show seemed to fade away like a plastic turd under snow but then reappeared in February.
