After Your Bad Self, RTE continues to pump out new material as they test the ground in the new year. Apart from season premiers of ER, Grey's Anatomy, Entourage, and Brothers & Sisters, there's a lot of homegrown shizz going down.
First up is Project Ha Ha, where four comedy pilots will run every Monday throughout the month of January. Dead Cat Bounce, Diet of Worms, David McSavage and an ensemble piece featuring comedians such as Bernard O'Shea, Collum McDonnell and Carol Tobin are all included.

Lucy Kennedy also gets her own late night series in the new year, imaginatively titled 'The Lucy Kennedy Show'. There's an Ireland's Got Talent series called 'The All Ireland Talent Show' presented by Grainne Seoige and featuring a host of other RTE heads, and perhaps most interestingly is ex-New York Dog and Blogorrah publisher John Ryan's stab at Daily Show fame with 'This Is Nightlive', a satirical news broadcast.
