    It was just about bearable, but I had to turn off when it got to the WNN bit - that was just too painfully unfunny.

    Agree that Mitchell was good, but even so, you can't really have an engaging debate with 4 people in less than 5 minutes. Everything was too chopped about and scripted.

    The difference with this and the Daily Show is that this is 4 known comedians (well, 3 and a quite funny presenter) trying to talk about news. The Day Today was a much better parody of the news because it was done seriously, and it's the same with the Daily Show - it's funny because the the satire is done with a straight face.
