Viewers have savaged the NRL Footy Show on Thursday night, complaining the signal and sound repeatedly cut out mid-broadcast.
Taking to social media on Thursday, viewers shared their disappointment with the show, which has struggled in the ratings since Erin Molan, 35, replaced Paul ‘Fatty’ Vautin as the show’s host.
‘They can’t even get the mics [sic] working. This is a joke,’ one man said.

‘Never thought Fatty was any good but he held it all together… what a total disaster. Obviously Channel 9 you don’t watch rugby league anymore,’ a second critic said.
The Footy Show, which has been running since 1994, suffered a 31 per cent week-on-week fall in Sydney alone in early March, averaging just 82,000 viewers.
The ratings plummet came after a much publicised revamp saw expectant mother Erin Molan take the reins.
Three weeks after the revamp, the show appears unable to win support from its audience.
‘Funny the broadcast goes to sh*t when the NRL Footy Show comes on,’ one man said on Thursday night.

‘What a great start to the show, can’t even [hear] what they’re saying, stupid sound keeps cutting out,’ another viewer said.
One woman said the audio was so bad she switched the program off.
‘Is the signal still bad? I turned it off,’ she said.
Viewers appeared equally unimpressed with the show’s commentary, with one man saying ‘bring back the fat’.
‘Why do we need to watch somebody who has never played the game and can only sit there and giggle. Just too annoying to watch anymore,’ another woman said.
