Planet America Special
Airs Friday, November 6 at 9pm (AEDT) on ABC News 24
Wednesday, November 4, 2015 — As Barack Obama’s time in the White House comes to an end, a billionaire businessman and a doctor who separated conjoined twins are the frontrunners to become the Republican Party’s Presidential nominee.
Clearly it’s time for the team from Planet America to explain what on earth is going on!
With one year until Americans elect their next president, join The Chaser’s Chas Licciardello and the ABC’s John Barron for a recap of the race so far, and the election ahead.
Top Democrat and Republican campaign strategists and local experts join Chas and John to preview the battle for the White House in 2016.

The Planet America special airs on Friday, November 6 at 9pm (AEDT) on ABC News 24 and a new weekly series of the show kicks off in early 2016.
Okay, it’s hardly hilarious news – Planet America was a little too dry for our tastes last US election cycle – but Chas is regularly the funniest and sharpest member of The Chaser and having him basically be an internet-capable Dickie Knee on Media Circus is a bit of a waste.
And who knows? With Donald Trump firming as a legit candidate and the rest of the pack trying to out-nutzo him, they should have plenty of material to work with.
But there are plenty of other outlets doing it better – and there’s still a year to go. Last Week Tonight, for example, are a Trump free zone, and all the better for it. My forehead is still sore from our Tones’ stupidity
@EvilCommieDictator- And last week tonight is on cable. As is most television coverage of the U.S. This is free.
