Every episode of Have I Got a Bit More News for You ever, ranked from best to worst by thousands of votes from fans of the show. The best episodes of Have I Got a Bit More News for You!

An extended version of the satirical news quiz, Have I Got News for You, featuring more of the stuff that wouldn't fit into the regular programme. The regular edition began on BBC Two on 28 September 1990, however it wasn't until the spring of 2007 for series 33 that the previously sporadic extended version of the show, which aired as a weekend repeat, became a permanent fixture and was given the name Have I Got a Bit More News for You. Over an hour's worth of material is recorded for each programme for broadcast the following day, allowing the programme to remain topical while the BBC's lawyers have time to request cuts of potentially defamatory material.
