Seen the trailers for this quite a few times, looked pretty funny so going to give the first episode a go.

Surprised it was the first episode last night (I'm guessing)... they seem to have been advertising it for absolutely ages!

yeah it was really good, Mark Heap is amazing as he always is, I just fear for Simon Bird because he plays the same character in everything he does!

Mark Heap was playing Alan Statham in it too! But I still find those same antics funny :D

Was going to mention Mark Heap! I absolutely loved him in Green Wing and he's just as funny in this.

Some quite funny moments in the first ep, particularly when they thought he had left yet so they insult him but then he appears in the room and the dad trying to move the sofa... "S**T ON IT" haha.

funny episode this week! :D

Friday Night Dinner rose to nearly 1.5m last night, outperforming Channel 4's 10pm slot average, early viewing figures indicate.

Starring Simon Bird, the sitcom's fourth instalment - titled 'The Dress' - amused 1.24m (6%) and 207k on Channel 4+1, a climb of around 300k viewers on the last episode.

Though Friday Night Dinner was too strong for Law & Order, which had 1.03m (5.7%) on Channel 5, it lost out to Frank Skinner's Opinionated, which returned to BBC Two for a second series with 1.8m (8.3%).

I know a few people who comparing this to Inbetweeners, just because Simon Bird stars in it. It's nothing like it, but still really good!

"No...I'm....not...on.....the....toilet!!!!" *flushes*

I was in hysterics when I watched that

'Friday Night Dinner' handed second series

Channel 4 has ordered a second series of Friday Night Dinner.

The comedy, which is still airing its first run, focuses on two young men who return home every Friday night to see their parents.

The cast includes Green Wing stars Tamsin Greig and Mark Heap, Inbetweeners actor Simon Bird, Paul Ritter and Tom Rosenthal.

The show's creator Robert Popper said: "I am so happy to be making a second series of Friday Night Dinner for Channel 4. I can't wait to get writing in the same small room again for eight lonely months, talking to myself at regular intervals and eating far too many biscuits."

Friday Night Dinner had the highest-performing debut episode of a new commissioned sitcom on Channel 4 since 2004 and has continued to do well in the ratings.

The show airs on Fridays at 10pm on Channel 4.
