Another change to Late Late Show format on the way ahead of September return

Late Late Show

Another change to the Late Late Show format has been hinted at ahead of its return in September.

After replacing long-standing Late Late show host, Ryan Tubridy with Patrick Kielty and refreshing the show’s logo, now it’s understood that it will be capped at a shorter 90-minute run.

That’s according to the Sunday World, who reports that the programme will start at 9.35 pm and will run until 11.05 pm, as opposed to the prior 11.45 pm end time.

This comes after the new logo was revealed to fans on Twitter (X), and many people were left unimpressed by the changes.

After the image was published to social media, lots of viewers were asking where the iconic owl has disappeared to.

One fan responded saying: “Where’s the owl. Why do you constantly have to run out history. It’s disgusting.”

Another viewer wrote: “Where’s the owl. Late late without the owl isn’t late late.”

Late Late Show applications were launched for fans to apply to be in the audience, and the questions asked on the form have caused even more speculation of change.

Hopefuls are asked if they have any “funny/interesting/extraordinary stories” that they would “be happy to contribute on air”.

This has led some to think the new format will involve the audience much more than before.

Applications remain open, so if you would love to experience all the action live, you can apply here.
