Brian O'Driscoll made his debut on BT Sport's Rugby Tonight on Monday and a cursory glance at the social media landscape shows that he was quite the hit.
Having said that, there was quite a bit of a wait while Lawrence Dallaglio and Austin Healy chatted about the Guinness Premiership.
Held my nose & got btsport for the euro matches and @BrianODriscoll on rugby tonight. RT Dreadful so far, better get on soon Briano!

When he finally did get his introduction, Craig Doyle and the BT Sport crew really rolled out the red carpet.
After that, O'Driscoll chatted, did a bit of coaching and generally charmed the pants off everyone.

After an impressive debut, we'll be following his new punditry career very closely.
