  1. Great to see Rev pick up Best Sitcom. Not outright hilarious, but created a low-key universe of its own. I’ll tip Friday Night Dinner for this time next year.

    What I wouldn’t give to have a local version of Have I Got News for You. Watching that in 1995 when I arrived in London was my way of getting up to speed with what the news stories I heard meant, and who was who in a cultural context.

    Still the king of news-quiz-comedies.
