The News Quiz gets a US makeover with an all-American panel.

Just in time for Thanksgiving; with Obama deep in to his final term, and financial insecurity tearing America apart; as political conflict in Washington has repercussions around the world; with the anniversary of JFK's assassination leading to reappraisal and soul searching amongst the world's great democracies; not to mention deep international debate about Miley Cyrus... a team of US comedians dissect the headlines as the News Quiz format crosses the Atlantic.

Hosted by Andy Borowitz - New York Times columnist, brain behind the Borowitz Report, Time magazine's top Twitterer, and the creator of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air!

Producer: Sam Bryant.
