Night Shift is an Irish television music show. Like its sister show Day Shift, it was one of Channel 6's Irish shows. It was launched with the network on Sunday, 30 March 2006. Night Shift was transmitted late at night and sometimes early on weekend mornings. The show was hosted by Michelle Doherty and featured the alternative music scene. In 2006, Night Shift was voted the favourite music show by Hot Press magazine readers. The last show aired on 31 December 2008. Channel 6 was replaced by 3e on 1 January 2009.[1] No reason was given for the ending of the show. It is rumoured that the show will be coming back in 2017 and will be presented by Dave Fanning but this has not been confirmed/denied by TV3.

Despite only airing for two years, the show helped launch many new Irish bands such as Director.

Michelle Doherty presented, from 2009 to 2010, a late-night alternative music show on RTÉ Two called When Under Ether[2] and until 2012 had her own radio show on Dublin's alternative rock radio station Phantom FM. She also appeared in the film What Richard Did.
