Got the good email. How lovely. Especially considering I've been getting a few too many rejections recently.

Good luck to everyone else!

No email for me, entirely fair enough. Congratulations to everyone who made it this week.

Nothing for me. Dayum. I wasn't too displeased with my one liners (though my number crunchers did suck). Oh well. Time to start thinking about next week.

Well done those of you who got something on.

Really enjoyed tonight's episode! Angela's monologue was an ideal length, very funny selection of sketches - good to see (hear?) they picked a range that satirised both the left and right. One thing though - does anyone else think Number Crunching is really short? That said, overall, solid start to the new series!

Good episode overall. I loved the final Theresa May number cruncher. Glad they saved that til last.

Couldn't help notice Angela totally recycled the 'it's their own time their wasting' teacher joke which is used as an example on the actual submissions guidelines page. Was that a terrible oversight or was it supposed to just be some kind of reference, a nod to submitters?
