It’s been hailed as Daryl Somer’s comeback hit, but viewers who tuned in to watch You’re Back In The Room last night were less than impressed with what they saw.
The show is supposed to be a funny and light-hearted hour of entertainment, where volunteers are hypnotised on stage in front of a live audience and told to do ridiculous activities to compete for money.
Despite the cruel comments, the show was actually a ratings hit with 2 million people tuning in at its peak.
Daryl has largely been missing from our screens since his popular show Hey, hey it’s Saturday wrapped up, with many fans hoping this would be his big breakthrough back into the industry.
If the ratings from the first episode are anything to go by, Daryl will be around for a little while yet.
However, the real test till come next week when we’ll find out if people will return for round two after the “train wreck” first episode.
I didn’t expect much more, but this is the worst thing I have ever seen on tv #yourebackintheroom

Approx 7 people on Twitter think #yourebackintheroom is hilarious. I think they’re all Channel 9 employees.
