A rift has opened in American television comedy between the Big Bang Theory school of leave-your-brain-at-reception chucklefests and the more rarefied, bittersweet humour of streaming and cable smashes such as Master of None. That forsaken middle ground dividing accessible and intellectually engaging has now been hilariously occupied by NBC’s The Good Place – a reflection on morality and the meaning of life that is also snort-your-tea-out-your nose funny.
Alas, in their haste to disrobe they’d forgotten troubled 15-year-old son Tom (Tom Taylor) was in the vicinity. He was in hot water at school for punching a pal. Hearing his warring parents hard at it in living room – they’d abandoned the kitchen, presumably on health-and-safety grounds – was obviously the last thing he needed. Tom’s woes provided the instalment with its emotional core and kept full, nostril-flaring silliness at bay.
So it was farewell to Vincent Browne and his Eyebrows of Incredulity. And a big hello to Matt and Ivan. Or was it Ivan and Matt? So it was farewell to Vincent Browne and his Eyebrows of Incredulity.

Ed Power: Vincent Browne must be rolling his eyes - as TV3's new The Tonight Show gets off to a meek startIn theory, the new presenters of the TV3 late night news broadcast formerly known as Tonight With Vincent Browne shared equal billing.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
