Have I Got News For You

When it comes to awards and features, the tendency is to focus on the new and fresh, which sometimes means stalwart formats get overlooked. That's probably the case a bit with Have I Got News For You. Now in its 47th series, the show is still proving to be a ratings winner. Case in point: the 4.4m viewers it attracted last week was a couple of million more than the next most popular new comedy. This week Martin Clunes takes the helm... it tends to be lively when he's on so we are looking forward to this. BBC One, 9pm. Guide

Also: more new stuff, like The Graham Norton Show. Schedule
