Ian Katz lines up against Katharine Viner - that's how most people are characterising the Race for Rusbridger's Chair at the Guardian, with final interviews expected this week.

Ian may be questioned on his transformation of Newsnight. He may not, perhaps, mention an overnight audience figure of 240k last Thursday. It's been a difficult night for the programme since the arrival of Question Time in BBC1 in 1980. But 240k is a poor showing. Laua Kuenssberg offered an "exclusive" on the Muslim Brotherhood getting antsy about the forthcoming Jenkins Report; an interview with Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe; and a tribute to Sir Terry Pratchett.

QT had Anna Soubry MP, a relaxed Charles Kennedy MP, Lucy Powell MP, Natalie Bennett and Ian Hislop.
