I managed a full set of one liners of varying quality. Didn't get any sketches submitted, had a couple of ideas but couldn't get them into anything like satisfactory shape.

Found it tough going this week. Managed three breaking news, and two GWBW. I've put a lot of hope in Flavor Flav, as he appears in each category. One of my gwbw's is probably far too political for broadcast, though

When do you find out? Do they email you whether it's a rejection or not or is it a case of having to listen to the show?

If your material is used and edited out or used and in the final show you'll get an email about 7pm on the day of broadcast.

I'm in. First time I've managed two in a series.

Didn't have time for sketches this week so it's going to be a "joke" of some sort.

And a nearly email for me too. That continues my streak of getting something in the script every series since 18* (I think).

I'm hoping it was for a sketch I was particularly proud of and I'll post it in the rejects thread
