Charlie Brooker points his finger at the week and laughs, with a satirical look at the last seven days, including Benefits Street, The Voice, snow in America and new technology.

Charlie Brooker returns with his unique brand of satirical commentary, as he points his finger at the previous seven days and laughs.

Subjects on the agenda include controversial Channel Four documentary Benefits Street, the new series of talent show The Voice, the snow across much of the United States and how American news reporters have been covering it, and some of the technology unveilled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Plus, American stand-up and misanthrope Doug Stanhope looks at Britain's relationship with alcohol, comedian and internet sensation Jake Yapp condenses an episode of This Morning down to 97 seconds, Limmy comes up with a new way to combat rising energy prices and Philomena Cunk delves into the world of crime and punishment.

January is grey, futile, cold and depressing, so why not tune in to Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe to discover why.
