  1. Yeah like most of the other comments, The Cheap Sheets was better than expected. Good to see some different talent on screen. I felt is was like a scripted and tight “The Panel” which is probably right for the current times given the other panel shows around. It was just those different camera angles: just no need for them – so distracting. Other than that….Well done Working Dog team.

    1. Wanted to comment earlier today and forgot (working from home/home schooling got in the way of TVT reading). I totally agree with you. 30 minutes would have been long enough. The guest panellist were probably not needed. First segment very strong but got bored towards end. I am sure it will improve over time. Good debut figures.

  2. I liked The Cheap Seats. I thought it was a good debut. Better than I had expected. It had elements of The Panel and drive time radio, and it has a point of difference compared to the quiz aspects of HYBPA? I’m also impressed at the collation of a considerable amount of humorous content. It’s safe to say that I would tune in again.

  3. I liked The Cheap Seats. Very funny until they got to the sports guy then I got a bit bored with it. Only other complaint I have is the annoying camera coming in from the side and Melanie keeping her attention to the front.
    Hope it goes well, we need a good laugh.

    1. I did notice that it did lose a bit of momentum towards the end. It’s an hour show and the decline in energy towards the tail end of the show could be a thing to look at for continuity and interest retention.

    2. Agree. Good start. Many laugh out loud moments. Hosts have good chemistry. I thought it was more HYBPA without questions. Hope it gains market.
      Yes the camera angles were distracting, I guess they were trying to be”arty” or creative, but it looked messy and uncontrolled!!
