Social media lit up tonight as viewers expressed outrage as a panel led Karl Stefanovic discussed issues including terrorism, mental health management and abortion. A sample of the initial twitter storm is included below, but its fair to say the vast majority was negative.

Panellists for the first episode included.

  • Mark Latham - former federal Labor leader and stay at home dad
  • Sandy Rea - criminal psychologist
  • Senator Jacqui Lambie - Independent Tasmanian Senator
  • Campbell Brown– former Australian Rules footballer
  • Jamila Rizvi – Editor-in-Chief of the Mamamia Network of websites
