Have I Got News For You is a topical comedy quiz game broadcast on BBC television. It has a different guest host each week. Private Eye editor Ian Hislop and comedian Paul Merton are the permanent team members, and are each accompanied by a different guest member - usually a political or media personality.

They have to answer a series of questions based on the week's news, in a series of rounds. This usually includes an "Odd One Out" round where four people are presented, three of which have a similarity, as well as a round where newspaper headlines are presented with words missing which guests must identify.
