The stats are in for last night's Young Offenders TV debut

If youโ€™re anything like us, you were nervous about last nightโ€™s TV debut of the Young Offenders.

The 'movie turned TV series' feat has a history of being a hit or a miss.

But not to worry, the debut episode was the top programme for 15 to 44-year-olds last night.

The first episode of the brand new 6-part series on RTE 2 had a 36 percent share of its audience.

The show, which follows the adventures of Cork teenagers Conor and Jock, has even been commissioned for a second series.
