Started to watch the show as usual.....but 5mins of Dermie talking about himself was to much. Didn't watch anymore.

I loved it when Sam Pang mentioned to Roos how he was involved with Melbourne, and how much Melbourne had improved since he left :)

humour plus humour plus denegrating humour of the guests/panellists plus sucking up to the guests afterwards. Reasonable show, in general.

I like the show, but Maher laughing like an idiot the whole farkin time at stuff that isn't that funny is getting harder to take.
If it's fake laughter, then it's FM breakfast show-level pukiness, and if it's real, then he's not quite right

Andy Maher, the bloke who never met a joke he didn't explain.

TFB was great fun this year but in last few shows noticed an increasing tendency to replay old footage they’d already done bits on earlier in the year.

They do a great job at finding amusing old footage of various kinds but it must take a lot of work to research and perhaps they’ve gotten into a habit of taking short cuts by using the same stuff multiple times.

Terrific show in spite of Maher who really offers nothing and has no chemistry with the other two.

When Santo Cilauro is on it shifts up a few years and would be brilliant with him permanently as host. Don’t think Santo would be interested

I loved it when Sam Pang said to Andy he's lucky to have a job. Andy just sat there dumbfounded for a moment and then joined in with the audience with his fake laugh. Agree with above poster, it would be great to see Santo in that role.

I like the idea of Santo hosting the show but if the producers thought it was a great idea, it would have come to fruition now. Maybe Santo's too busy as well.
