Good News Week was an Australian satirical panel game show hosted by Paul McDermott that aired from 19 April 1996 to 27 May 2000, and 11 February 2008 to 28 April 2012. The show's initial run aired on ABC until being bought by Network Ten in 1999. The show was revived for its second run when the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike caused many of Network Ten's imported US programmes to cease production. Good News Week drew its comedy and satire from recent news stories, political figures, media organisations, and often, aspects of the show itself. The show opened with a monologue by McDermott relating to recent headlines, after which two teams of three panellists competed in recurring segments to gain points. The show has spawned three short-lived spin-off series, the ABC's Good News Weekend, Ten's GNW Night Lite and Ten's skit-based Good News World.

Children’s series in which rabbit Haas Das brings the daily news from the animal kingdom. He is assisted (or hampered) by Piet Muis, the rather neurotic mouse who brings in the late bulletins and reads the weather. Haas Das was known for his sense of style: every week he sported a new tie, and as the series became more popular, viewers would send him ties to wear. (His name translates to "Hare Tie"). The newsworthy characters from Diereland ("animal land") included Koning Leeu, king of Diereland; Skillie Skilpad, chairman of the sportsclub; Stinkie Muishond; the meddling, bellyaching Moeder Raaf; wrestling champ Die Gemaskerde Wonder; Grootoom Flapoor, the old elephant in charge of the crèche; and Dokter Karools Krap, the golf-loving, pill-peddling local doctor. Haas Das and Piet Muis were puppet characters, and the news stories were presented in animation. Haas Das se Nuuskas was the first series to be shown on the opening night of SABC TV on 5 January 1976. Soon it became one of South Africa’s most popular programmes, not just among its intended audience, but especially with adults, due to the humour and social and political satire. Indeed, newspaper cartoons often commented on the series' popularity and how even church and political leaders had become engrossed. Haas Das se Nuuskas was created by Louise Smit, who was behind many of South Africa's most beloved children's series such as Wielie Walie, Pieriewierepark, Mina Moo en Kie, Pumpkin Patch and Kideo.

Liquid News was the daily round up of entertainment news for BBC Three running from 30 May 2000 to 1 April 2004. It was originally a vehicle for presenter Christopher Price. Following his death on 21 April 2002, the show continued with a variety of presenters including Colin Paterson, Claudia Winkleman, Iain Lee, Jasmine Lowson, Paddy O'Connell, Jo Whiley, Joe Mace and Amanda Byram. The programme originally evolved from Zero 30, the previous entertainment programme on BBC News 24, also hosted by Price. Once this was dropped from the 24 hour news channel, controller of the then BBC Choice, Stuart Murphy, took the format and brought it to the channel where it soon became the flagship programme as part of a radical change to the schedules of both digital-only BBC channels BBC Choice and BBC Knowledge from June 2000 as they became more focused and targeted to specific audiences. The show continued on BBC Three which replaced BBC Choice in February 2003, but in April 2004 the show was axed. Murphy, who also went on to be controller of BBC Three, stated that the show would end as a way to "refresh the channel's output to best serve the audience". The news element of the channel was unaffected by the ending of the programme with 60 Seconds and The 7 O'Clock News already in existence serving as the replacement. Although The 7 O'Clock News was later axed in 2005, 60 Seconds remains on BBC Three to this present day.
