Ryan Tubridy commented on the high audience figures, saying: “At the end of a very difficult week in Ireland, I think the country needed a smile, a laugh and a big hug and I think that’s what we did on Friday. I’m keen to stress that it wasn’t the toys and it wasn’t me, it was the children who shone on the night and for that I’m very grateful and very happy.”

The ‘Late Late Toy Show’ also attracted 46,500 streams on RTÉ Player, up almost 120% on the figures achieved for the same period last year. 38% of these viewed streams were from users outside of Ireland, with 16% from the UK and 6% from the US. Going by the live audience and RTÉ player figures (compiled by TAM Ireland Ltd./ Nialsen TAM), the ‘Late Late Toy Show 2010’ is the number one most watched programme of the year-to-date on any channel available in Ireland.
