Seven Sharp's new line up has been met with a mixed reaction, with some reserving judgment until new hosts Hilary Barry and Jeremy Wells have had time to settle into their roles.

But the same can't be said for the show's new pink set, which has been unilaterally panned by couch critics.

Across social media, viewers have slated the new pink set and circular desk, calling it "dreadful" and suggesting it undermines the programme's credibility.

"What a colour scheme failure. Who on earth designed this?" wrote one viewer.

Another suggested it looked more like the setting of a hen's party than a current affairs set.

Even loyal followers on the show's Facebook page had few kind words for the new set.

"Too light, fluffy and PINK to be a credible current affairs show," wrote one follower.

"Much too much pink. Any pink is too much pink," wrote another.

Viewers were also not sold on Barry's wardrobe choice for the night, a blush dress which had the unfortunate effect of making her blend into the pink background behind her.

"What a shocking dress Hilary. Love you. Lose your wardrobe team. Absolute shocker," said one viewer.

Another thought Barry looked "like a very old fashioned bridesmaid".

Wells' wardrobe also came in for criticism with many feeling his suit and tie combo was too formal for the programme.
