  1. I’m really enjoying The Cheap Seats, but they need to get rid of the jokes about how the show isn’t doing well/isn’t good. It just makes me wonder why I bother watching it if it’s such a bomb.

    I get they are trying to be self depreciating, but it’s just so heavily applied that it’s overbearing. Same jokes on HYBPA whenever Tim or Mel are on.

    The show is pretty good – stop telling people it isnt.

  2. Also happy to see Cheap Seats going well and being renewed. Mel and Tim are so funny and in sync with each other. I think Tim is the naturally funniest guy I have seen on TV in a long time!

  3. Fast becoming one of the best shows on FTA TV. Cheap seats I watch on Tuesday and Thursday nights and I catch things that I miss out on the Tuesday night. Deserves a larger audience, good to see that the numbers are increasing.

  4. I’m so happy to see Cheap Seats doing well!! We absolutely love it and it’s a highlight of our week. Mel and Tim are always bagging themselves and ‘lack of audience’ but they are doing something right. Really hope it’s back for 2022!
