People Furious At Mrs Brown's Boys For 'Ruining' 2022

New year and new beginnings, but some things stay the same: Mrs Brown's Boys remains one of the most divisive shows on television.

And some people are particularly angry with the sitcom this time round, going so far as to say that it has 'ruined 2022'.

Viewers of the show, which stars Irish actor Brendan O'Carroll as the disgruntled matriarch, blasted the BBC for continuing to produce it.

The ire was directed at the special, which aired yesterday (1 January).

Writing on Twitter, one critic said: "2022 was going so well but Mrs Brown's Boys has just come on!"

Echoing the anger, another chimed in: "Sooner catch Happy New Year's Omicron than watch Mrs Brown's Boys!"

"Just my annual tweet to remind you all that Mrs Brown's Boys is dog sh*t and not funny in the slightest," put a third.

But not everyone was so upset by the show.

With it going on for so long, it clearly has plenty of fans out there who tune whenever it's on.

Defending the show, one user said: "Mrs Brown Boys is brilliant as it makes people forget what's happening in the world right now."

While another chipped in, saying: "I love #MrsBrownsBoys because its about family and the love the members of that family has for each other."

The show and its characters are known for making, let's say, fairly risqué jokes over the years.

Back in 2020, Mrs Brown shocked some viewers when she joked about Caitlyn Jenner's sex reassignment surgery on episode of her chat show.

The host, played by Brendan O'Carroll, dabbed her neck with a handkerchief and appeared flustered in the aftermath of the gag, but fortunately Jenner responded with a joke of her own. 

As Jenner discussed how blessed she was to have 10 children, the host responded: "Jesus! Thank God you got rid of it!"

Jenner, 72, took it in her stride though and replied: "Thank God! I didn't actually get rid of it, I just retired it," before going for a high five.

The Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete then added: "Put it this way, I did have some really good Olympic swimmers."


The hilarious exchange is taken from the first episode of the fourth series of All Round To Mrs. Brown's.
