BBC AMERICA and NPR bring the Peabody Award-winning radio quiz show to television with a 2011 year-in-review special titled, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!: A Royal Pain in the News. Join host Peter Sagal and official judge and scorekeeper Carl Kasell for an evening of informative fun as they lead a panel of both U.S. and U.K. talent, including comedians Paula Poundstone, Alonzo Bodden and Nick Hancock, through 2011’s biggest events. The special looks back at the year’s top stories from an American and British perspective and includes listener contests as well as the multiple choice quiz "Not My Job" with award-winning writer Neil Gaiman (Coraline, The Sandman, Doctor Who).
