The Yearly With Charlie Pickering
Wednesday, ABC, 8.30pm
A week is a long time in news, but The Weekly ’s Charlie Pickering, Tom Gleeson and Kitty Flanagan can cover a year in an hour. Yes, that’s right, the usual half-hour news/comedy/chat show, that takes great joy in exposing the humorous, the absurd and the downright hypocritical stories of the week, is tonight cherry-picking the best stories of the year for your entertainment. With international correspondents, they relive 2015’s highs and lows. Newsmakers, politicians and other charlatans will be quaking in their boots. Who will be “The Weekly’s Person of the Year”? It’s a laugh-a-minute as we take a trip down memory lane.
