Channel 4 and Expectation partner up to produce an end of year review show presented by the judge of daytime TV, Robert Rinder (Judge Rinder).
The one-off special will see Rinder apply his legal know-how and sharp wit to analyse the funniest moments and the biggest topics of the last year.
Rinder will also be joined by a roster of famous faces including former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, comedian Deborah Frances-White (Have I Got News for You), journalist and broadcaster Clare Balding (Wimbledon) and politician-turned-dancing star Ed Balls (Strictly Come Dancing).
“The year has left everyone sick, exhausted, and so angry they’re not even talking to each other," said Rob Rinder. “It’s basically been like a year of Boxing Day. I’m going to buck that trend, smash through the echo chambers and burst the filter bubbles, whilst playing some incredibly funny clips.”
The uncompromising TV judge will scour all the talking points, news stories and stand out people of the year to provide a hilarious take on 2018.
“I am so excited to get Rob’s authentic voice on Channel 4. Intelligent, witty, provocative and thought-provoking,” said Syeda Irtizaali, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment at Channel 4. “He is the perfect host to really delve into a year of madness and hyperbole and find the glimmers of hope and humour.”
Rob Rinder’s Good Year Bad Year will air on Friday 28th December at 10.00pm on Channel 4.
