Many people don’t like Pat Kenny. They criticise his demeanour as a presenter and interviewer, saying he’s stiff and boring. My favourite comment about him was when a guy rang Ray Darcy’s Fix-it Friday asking “where can I buy a wooden Pat Kenny as featured on the Late Late Toy Show”. People just wish we had someone more dynamic and well, more fun as host of our most popular chat-show.
In fairness though, he’s never rung the answering machine of an elderly man and told him he’d shagged his grand-daughter. And then decided it would be funny to let it go out on air.
Sometimes you’ve to be careful what you wish for.
