Further details

While the confetti settles in town halls across America, Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker apply their non-jaundiced, award-winning brand of satire to the most bonkers election in US history. The boys are joined by some huge names as well as live reports from across the pond as they try and figure out whether the world has changed for the better or the worse. As ever the taboo busting 'Is It Ok?' questions will inform the show.


This episode was originally billed to run from 10pm to 11pm, but moved and extended due to the media's shock at the news of Donald Trump's win.
