(Newser) – NPR's popular Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me is heading for the bright lights of television. The quiz show will get a one-hour special that will air Dec. 23 on the cable channel BBC America, reports AP. The New York Times sees it as a "try-out of sorts"—if it does well, expect to see more next year. Host Peter Sagal wasn't divulging much: "No comment. (I've always wanted to say that to the New York Times.)" The shows draws 3.2 million weekly listeners on the radio.
