The Bubble

Ooh, another BBC show starring David Mitchell. That's certainly something worth keeping an eye on, right? The show in question is The Bubble and it features the aforementioned comedian as the host of the show. It started its run on February 19th and is a four part show that will run until the 12th of March.

The show itself is an interesting concept. You grab hold of three celebrities and keep them in an isolated spot for four days. Well, it's not so much isolated as cut off from any new sources. Thus, these guys will be blissfully unaware of what was happening in the world when they were holed up in that location. Hence, you know, the title 'The Bubble'. Boy, I'd hate to be these guys if there was a zombie take-over of the country and they were uninformed of evacuation notices.

Russell Howard's Good News

If you are familiar with Mock the Week, then you're already familiar with Russell Howard, a comedian who is a regular on that show. Well, if you love his brand of humor, be sure to check out Russell Howard's Good News.

RHGN is news satire show that started out in October 2009. Like other shows of the genre, this one examines various news that have been making headlines and, more often than not, makes you laugh about its (sometimes unintentionally) weird little aspects. Incidentally, the show is coming back for a second season later this year.

The show itself is divided into several sections which include Sports, Politics and Law and Order. Other sections are usually feel-good stories from the news as well as cutesy ones about little kids.
