The news quiz was always amusing in its old format, however now, it appears to have "celebrities" who just need exposure for a book, or tour, and the flow seems to have gone, the panel seem to want to get their quip or one liner in regardless of the validity of the comment. No longer...Read full review »

Funny Dispite me being thousands of miles away from this stuff
Hammering Dancer 81 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/24
There are two problems with The News Quiz. Firstly, it trivialises many serious issues. It uses facetious comments, flippancy and a sneering tone of voice to transform serious issues into a parlour game of he said, she said. Secondly, the comedy is weak, the jokes are feeble, self-indulgent. ...Read full review »

I look forward to this every week, especially the news quiz episodes. But the decision to delay shows on platforms other than BBC Sounds means I cannot get it downloaded automatically on time with my other podcasts.

Great show but the Israeli apologists are terrible

As a very long term fan of the show I am appalled at the lack of respect shown for the subpostmasters in this episode. Not only were all of the guests disrespectful in the extreme, they were unforgivably unfunny. Shame on you all, you should be suspended and reprimanded, every single one of you.

December podcasts published in January lose their sparkle. Protecting THE system so jealously loses listeners Radio 4. Boring marketing games or creative sabotage?
HélèneAC via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/15/24
Guests are still hit or miss but getting better. The millennial female comedians are tediously unfunny and irritating. Andy Zaltzman is not funny. Not even humerous. His opening is banal as are his continuity comments and his closing is even worse. The News Quiz used to be the flagship now it’s...Read full review »
Mallarie121 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/24
Love the News Quiz - Andy Zaltzman is an absolutely superb host and Dead Ringers is pretty good too. However, The Now Show can be a bit patchy because although the hosts are fairly funny, there’s too much filler and some of the featured comedians are absolutely dire. Jessica Fostekew and Ria Lina...Read full review »

The download is downloaded automatically on 01 December 2023, but relates to the broadcast of 3 November 2023 why has it taken a month for it to be downloaded- as a result of the delay it is not topical as the news is so out of date - poor show from the BBC
deafoldcodger via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/05/23
Andy has the best sense of humor, combines satire with silly. And he doesn’t amplify the bigotry of his colleagues. (Expressing hatred for conservatives is not funny by itself and the very common mean-spirited attitude of liberal celebrities gets old.). So satire of the Left is missing but...Read full review »

Hilarious . But they get so many things wrong about Australia . I wonder if this is the case with other countries.
Moi be me via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/15/23
The news quiz, the now show and dead ringers all great. However the other “filler” shows are weak and to be frank, unfunny usually.
Si113 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/08/23
The summer specials were first class, I would subscribe to any of them were they to be a series
uberdunk2 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/02/23
It is amazing I laughed out loud 😁
Lazerrfreshhman48 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/01/23
Catherine Bohart’s TLDR was cracking! Loved it so much
Bigncdshnh via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/23/23
I like the show, but the scoring is inaccurate in 13.7% of shows, which spoils it for me.
thorpe_jd via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/13/23
As your Alexa says in the show, “please stop Dom, please stop!” Accidentally caught the second episode, thought the first was a bad on-off . I was wrong, so wrong. News quiz may 2020? It’s September 2023, talk about recycling!

Ahh
Just the usual BBC safe unfunny rubbish,
poowoo3 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/06/23
Great Pilot show and would listen and subscribe if made a weekly series.
TankyW via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/25/23
It’s pretty funny
Konodokid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/23
It might not be for you but it’s still great.
my thoughts on the podcast via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/19/23
I’ve been following this podcast for years and years. I appreciated the fact that living outside the U.K. and the BBC not imposing ads meant I was getting the podcast free. However, given that now the podcast is three weeks behind the actual broadcast and the BBC now imposed ads on the podcast...Read full review »
Irlskin via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 07/28/23
I enjoy all these shows but can’t for the life of me work out why the BBC have decided to delay their publication to Apple Podcasts. Yes I can get them on bbc sounds but the bbc are not supposed to be commercially driven so why force me to use their app rather than Apple’s.
Astro_bumpkin via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/24/23
Sorry but Dead Ringers is just not funny. The impressions are terrible and they are still dragging up the same Boris routines that they have been doing for years. Time to give it a rest I’m afraid.
Dental Darren via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/22/23
Totally not interested in listening to a topical show a month late. You are not funny enough to pay for.
Kelaeryyr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/23
Gone to the dogs
Galloyhoy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/30/23
I hung in there when they tried to get everyone to move to BBC sounds instead of podcasts, initially by delaying each podcast release for four weeks. But the latest attempt to kill the show is by intrusive ads as well - at start and at end of show, and the surprise ads in the middle. I’m out,...Read full review »
Serendelicious via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/15/23
This show has had anti-disabled jokes for two weeks running now. Disgraceful. Clearly no empathy and no shame on the panel or in the cutting room. Would you make such jokes about MS and Alzheimers? Don’t listen to this if you care about disabled people.
LMRLMRLMR_18 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/28/23
As my heading states, the Now Show is not a Patch on the News Quiz. Please bring TNQ back as soon as possible and get rid of TNS.
MdeBohun via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/25/23
My birthday is APRIL 14
Hopingpool via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/25/23
It would be helpful if they put the day’s episode on that exact day
henster1212 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/17/23
This month delay when no listening through your app is infuriating.
Fixiejacksprack via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 04/29/23
I love listening to the news quiz, now show, and dead ringers. They used to be out for the previous weeks news. Now we get the show from 24 March released and available onn22 April. It’s ridiculous and I can’t understand why this happens or what justification there is for it. Please put it back...Read full review »
gregword1 via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 04/26/23
The news is grim so listening to this is a welcome break not sure how they do it but always funny.
Greblet via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/15/23
Or at least that was, until some exec at the BBC decided to screw everyone who refused to use their turgid app. 1 star.
Person Gamma via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/08/23
I used to love the News Quiz but now the content is way out of date and boring. The panel are often people you’ve barely heard of and just aren’t funny. Unsubscribing!
Kgrnl via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/01/23
Thought there was a glitch with my phone and it wasn’t downloading properly. This is such a nonsensical decision for a topical quiz. Listened for decades, but won’t be doing so a month later and don’t want an additional app.
elldzzzz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/30/23
What genius thinks it makes sense for a topical news quiz to be on a month delay?
Stripey Cat via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 03/30/23
This is a treat every week. The host and panelists are fantastic. The exceptions are the comedians from the U.S. We Americans just aren’t as funny as the Brits. They are in a league of their own.
Lovenotcamping via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/23
Something that was always lightheartedly delightful has turned grotesquely unfunny. A real shame.
Eros1010 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/20/23
Used to love it but the shows are topical in nature so listening to them after a month delay is not ok.
