About the author

    Mrs Brown’s Boys as one of the most watched? Seriously? I like a good comedy, but this one is shite. Nothing original about it. Aren’t TVNZ now repeating the series from the start when they’ve only just played it? Now that’s lazy programming.
    I also see that Smash didn’t make it into TV3′s most watched list. Hopefully they won’t take if off air…

      Mrs Brown’s Boys is one of the funniest, laugh out loud comedies I’ve seen in recent years. Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so.

      Luckily for you there are a number of other channels you can switch to if it doesn’t suit your fancy.

    My parents watch MBB. It’s a very noisy tv show.
