Hmm, I don't know, but I shall look - thank you for the thought. I'm
not totally sure whether this series has episode/season numbers in the
guide data - it's a topical news show - but if so then that's an
answer, so long as I remember to update it!
(for the curious in the UK: The show I'm thinking of is Russel
Howard's Good News. The channel named Dave airs new episodes and
repeats, but I only want new episodes because topical humour about
what happened in the news last year is rarely funny!)
