NPR's 'Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me' To Make Its BBC America Debut On TV

WASHINGTON -- NPR's quiz show "Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me" is making the leap from radio to television.

The show debuts Friday evening on BBC America. The first show will be a year-in-review special. Host Peter Sagal, scorekeeper Carl Kasell and a panel including Paula Poundstone and Alonzo Bodden will discuss the year's events.

They promise to delve into 2011's biggest scandals, from former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner to the phone hacking scandal at Rupert Murdoch's media empire and the Occupy Wall Street protests.

The show will also broadcast on NPR stations this weekend. It was taped Dec. 2 in front of an audience in Chicago.

"Wait Wait" is in its 14th season on NPR and draws a weekly audience of 3.2 million listeners on 595 public radio stations.
