5 stars for the News Quiz, 1 star for the Now Show
The Friday Night News Quiz is fab - unfortunately it alternates every 8 weeks or so with the "Now Show" which is really quite a boring, tired look at current events with the predictable jokes, (shock) "swearing" and holier than though liberalism (yaaawwwnnn). The News Quiz is sooooo brilliant that I will happily put up with downloading the Now Show so I don't every have to miss an episode.
Spectacular News Quiz
The News Quiz is perhaps the most entertaining audio podcast currently available on the web. With biting satire and sharp wit from all participants on the show, the News Quiz lives up to its reputation. Unfortunately the News Quiz alternates with the deplorable Now Show which uses cheap, lame gags in a vain attempt for laughter and should be generally ignored.
Now show is terrible, NewsQuiz is fantastic!
Want to give the NewsQuiz 5 stars but have to give it only an average rating because the Now show is always on. Is it just me or does the now show run for 2 months and the NewsQuiz only for 1. At anyrate, less of the Now show and more of news quiz - please!!
