The Irish remake of UK gameshow Blind Date began on TV3 last night, with comedian Al Porter taking up Cilla Black's mantle.
Following the success of Take Me Out, it seems Blind Date has hit all the right note with its viewers, given that the most consistent description of Twitter has been "cringey".
Here are some of the best online reactions to the show's Irish debut:
