Brian Williams on 'The Daily Show'Brian Williams is a frequent guest on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) and enjoys as an easy rapport with host Jon Stewart. So much so that Williams feels comfortable giving Stewart advice on self-improvement.

"You know what I did ... knowing something about you? I got these," Williams told Stewart, before putting on a pair of glasses.

"Without them I was a guy who failed to complete my studies at Brookdale Community College in New Jersey. But with them, I went to the Ivy League." Williams claimed, turning toward the audience and posing with his new spectacles.


In response Stewart put pens behind both of his ears, claiming they made him look smart.

Williams wasn't convinced and told Stewart if he got himself "some trifocals [with] a nice horn rim," it would be "worth 75 IQ points."

So, if Jon Stewart shows up tonight wearing a fresh new pair of specs, you know why.
