Radio DJ deems RTÉ’s Room To Improve ‘disgusting’ and ‘pathetic’

Waterford Radio DJ Damien Tiernan has taken to Twitter to criticise RTÉ’s home renovation show, Room To Improve.

Posting on Twitter, Tiernan deemed the show "disgusting" and "pathetic".

"That Room to Improve is a disgusting programme. At no time does Bannon question the morality of what he is promoting,” he began.

"It's a complete cod of a programme that plays on people's greed, opulence and avarice. And RTE promotes it as entertainment? Pathetic. They should be ashamed."

He added that he thinks the popular show is "shockingly bad" and in need of an overhaul.

"Sorry but am waiting years to say those words!” he said.

Thought there might just ‘might’ have been a change or realisation of a changed world in the past few seasons but no...and as a conceptual prog, it’s shockingly bad.

His view was meet with mixed comments from fellow Twitter users.

“Totally agree with you. Imagine watching someone spend 11.5k on a bath from a hotel room or direct provision centre tonight,” one said.

While another added: "Get over yourself. I don’t like the Kardashians, I don’t watch it. I don’t like 90% of the stuff RTÉ show, I don’t watch it.

"It’s a TV show and in fairness they have as many (more) normal people with normal spending as they do high end opulence.”

Tiernan worked as RTE's South East correspondent for 23 years before making the move to Waterford radio station WLR FM.
