The End is an adult comedy television strand on Network Two/RTÉ Two in the Republic of Ireland. The End was aired on Friday and Saturday night from 11pm to 2am. RTÉ used this show to test the audience appetite for late night TV. The End was presented by Barry Murphy on Friday nights and by Sean Moncrieff on Saturday nights. The End had a cult following of "drunks and teenagers" who would often ring into the show leaving bizarre late night messages for the presenters. Sean Moncrieff would be joined by a puppet called Septic in later seasons. Barry Murphy would use The End to launch many of his Apres Match characters such as Frank Stapleton. Sean Moncrieff would get a new chat show on RTE One called Good Grief Moncrieff, however this wasn't a success due in part to the conservative and mainstream RTE One audience. Later he would go on to present the RTE Two series Don't Feed the Gondolas.
