The Late Late Show, sometimes referred to as The Late Late, or in some cases by the initialism LLS, is the world's longest-running chat show by the same broadcaster and the official flagship television programme of Irish broadcasting company Raidió Teilifís Éireann. The show was broadcast live for over two hours in front of a studio audience at 21.30 on Friday nights between September and May. It was regarded as an Irish television institution, even outside the country, and was considered "Ireland's chat show". The show, originally conceived as a temporary summer filler programme for a niche audience on Saturday nights at 23.30, began broadcasting on Friday nights in 1962 and was presented by Gay Byrne for over 35 years, on Saturday evenings for some of that time. For most of its early years, the show was broadcast live from Studio 1 at RTÉ in Dublin. The studio was small and could only accommodate an audience of around 100. Gay Byrne talked about this on a 2008 RTÉ programme called Gaybo Laughs Back, which showed classic comedy moments from his tenure as host of the show. In 1995, the show moved into the more spacious and RTÉ's largest television studio, Studio 4, a studio specifically adapted to cater for this flagship production, and Kenny's former chat show, Kenny Live. The Late Late Show has on three occasions been broadcast externally, most recently from the Wexford Opera House on 5 September 2008.

The Toy Show, as it is referred to, is broadcast in late November or early December each year. It has been an annual event since at least the 1970s. The show is regularly the most watched programme of the year on Irish television, with viewership figures rising steadily in recent years. The show, which consists of an adult-only studio audience dressed in traditional Christmas attire, does not accept advertisements which promote toys for its commercial breaks but, whilst new gadget-type toys regularly break down during the live show, being featured on the programme itself has been said to have a major boost to sales of a product over the following number of weeks in the build-up to the Christmas period. Most recently presented by Ryan Tubridy, the show has previously been presented by Gay Byrne and Pat Kenny during their tenures at the helm. Dustin the Turkey, a high-profile entertainment figure in Ireland, makes an annual appearance, usually bringing a gift for the presenter. These gifts when produced tend to have a comedy effect and in the past have included a miniature antique chair and a Pat Kenny clock, ominously presented to Kenny's predecessor Gay Byrne. The Toy Show, along with the Tribute Shows, tends to be one of the few editions of The Late Late Show to require advance preparation before the week of broadcast. Advertising in 2009 cost €17,000 for each 30 second slot—this compares to €9,750 for the 2010 UEFA Champions League Final.

Late Call was Scottish Television's version of "The Epilogue", presenting five minutes of religious thought late at night. It was parodied by Rikki Fulton in the comedy show Scotch and Wry where it was named "Last Call". His character, "Reverend I.M. Jolly", was an exaggerated version of the clerical and lay representatives from all the mainstream Churches in Scotland who often featured in Late Call. Last Call is still remembered fondly by TV viewers in the same way that the original Late Call is much valued and missed. The programme was by no means the only production from the Religious Department of Scottish Television, but arguably the best known. Producers were Rev. Dr Nelson Gray, a Congregational Minister, and Rev. Eric Hudson, a Minister of the Church of Scotland.
