Talk to anyone in the know about this show and the word “most” crops up a lot. It’s BBC3’s most successful entertainment series. It’s routinely one of the most watched shows on iPlayer. And he’s the most-trended Twitter topic whenever his show airs.
If the phrase “most funniest” was actually grammatically correct, that could be inserted, too, because Good News is a treat; a sillier version of Have I Got News for You. And don’t let the fact that Howard looks about 12 put you off; he’s grown-up and very clever. The format is a tried and trusted one: Howard will take a look at the week’s news to bring us the daftest stories.
The comedian offers his perspective on the big stories dominating the media across TV, online and in print in an edition from 2011, as well as picking up on overlooked items that raise a smile.
