Newsjack Record To Date

Tonight's episode of Newsjack brings series 7 to a close after 6 episodes.

It also marks the 30th episode I have submitted material to. I've submitted material to every episode since series 3 episode 1.

Since I didn't get an email today about the final episode of series 7, I can safely say that none of the 5 one liners I submitted made the script to be recorded. (If your stuff is recorded you receive an email on Thursday after the final edit has been completed. The email will either say one of two things: Your stuff was recorded but cut for time or your material made the final edit. In neither instance do they let you know what material made the script.)

Here is a breakdown of my submission record for each series:

Series 7 (br. 20th Sep - 25th Oct 2012), 6 episodes: 1 - 0 - 5.

Series 6 (br. 23rd Feb - 29th Mar 2012), 6 episodes: 1 - 0 - 5.

Series 5 (br. 15th Sep - 20th Oct 2011), 6 episodes: 0 - 1 - 5.

Series 4 (br. 10th Feb - 17th Mar 2011), 6 episodes: 0 - 0 - 6.

Series 3 (br. 17th Jun - 22nd Jul 2010), 6 episodes: 0 - 0 - 6.

Total record:

Series 3 to series 7 (2010 - 2012), 30 episodes: 2 - 1 - 27.

(Key: Broadcast Credit - cut for time email - nothing used.)

I'm pleased that I was able to get a second overall credit this series, but I'll be honest and say that I was hoping for 2 credits this series as it would indicate that at least I was improving and writing more of the kind of material that they wanted. But a credit is a credit, and a 6.67% success rate is better than nothing at all. And the only way to get better is to keep going.

So let's see if I can increase my 2 credits (S06E06 and S07E01) in series 8 next February.
