Who Should Host the Emmys?

by Allison Waldman, posted May 1st 2010 5:29PM
Jimmy_Fallon_Late_night_NBCThe Primetime Emmys are still months away – the night of Sunday, August 29, to be exact – but the talk in Hollywood has already started swirling about who's going to host the show. An announcement is expected next week and since NBC is doing the broadcast, 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon is being mentioned prominently.

According to Entertainment Weekly, NBC has urged the TV Academy board to give Jimmy Fallon the thumbs up. Fallon's presence, the network contends, would appeal to a younger demographic. Terms like Twitter and Facebook have been thrown around to prop up the argument.

What You Missed Last Night: Crumbums and Fatcats on 'The Daily Show'

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 16th 2010 11:34AM
Jon Stewart goes after both political parties in this clip from last night's episode of 'The Daily Show': Nancy Pelosi, Eric Massa, John Boehner, and several others get some ribbing from Stewart. Then it turns into a discussion of how Washington politics is just like professional wrestling and ends with Stewart on top of his desk pleading for his life.

What You Missed Last Night: Jon Stewart Surfs Chatroulette!

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 5th 2010 3:04PM
Whenever there's a new web site that's getting a lot of attention, you can bet that every single news show, opinion show, and morning show will be "on the case" to find out what the "kids" are "obsessed" with now. The latest is Chatroulette (we even talked about it on a recent podcast), and last night Jon Stewart surfed the site on 'The Daily Show.'

What You Missed Last Night: Jon Stewart on Rick Sanchez

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2010 2:37PM
Yesterday we showed you Rick Sanchez's, um, "excitable" coverage of the Chile earthquake on Saturday. Last night, Jon Stewart talked about it too. The clip below ends perfectly, by showing footage of another classic Rick Sanchez "report," the time he got tasered by police.

For the record, Sanchez talked about the way he acted on his show yesterday. His apology/explanation was just as clueless as his reporting on Saturday.

Two Examples of Why Tracy Morgan is Talk Show Gold

by Nick Zaino, posted Feb 25th 2010 6:03PM
In case you hadn't heard, Tracy Morgan is the most fertile man on the planet. It must be true, otherwise he wouldn't offer to impregnate women quite so often. Now Morgan has Jimmy Kimmel riding shotgun on his magical maternity ride in a new video for 'IMPREGN8ED,' a thumping club tune about, well, making women pregnant.

Morgan is the player hitting up the ladies at the club (a phrase that falls uneasily from my brain), and Kimmel is the Lil Wayne (or is it Lil Jon?) sidekick singing the ubiquitous Auto-Tune chorus. And, you know, adult heads on babies is comedy gold. Here's the video Kimmel introduced Wednesday night.

WGA Awards Honor 'Mad Men,' '30 Rock' and others

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 22nd 2010 1:00PM
writers_guild_award_trophyOn Saturday night, the Writers Guild of America revealed the big winners for 2010, honoring the best in TV, movies and other media, but for our purposes, let's just stick with television. And as such, we can say the they rounded up the usual suspects.

'Mad Men' was tops in Drama Series and '30 Rock' was tops in Comedy Series. There was something new honored, Best New Series was 'Modern Family,' but seeing how the category makes new a requirement, it's not that shocking that it won.

However, in the episodic categories, for individual shows, there were was variance. The pilot of 'Modern Family' won in a tie with '30 Rock' for the episode 'Apollo, Apollo.' And the two part episode of 'House' -- 'Broken, Part 1 and Part 2' -- overcame all the 'Mad Men' nominees to take the WGA prize.

Bill O'Reilly Tones Down the Funny in Final Part of His Jon Stewart Interview

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 5th 2010 5:29PM
Bill O'Reilly wrapped up the final portion of his interview with Jon Stewart on last night's 'O'Reilly Factor' and if you tuned in hoping for a night of hilariousness, well...you still got it. But this time, you got it from the right person.

Jon Stewart, the host of Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show', kept his trademark charm and wit at high volume during the third and final portion of their edited interview, even though the tone and substance of their discussion got a lot more serious.

And thankfully, O'Reilly put down his red nose and took off his clown make-up for this portion of the interview. As Joel mentioned yesterday, O'Reilly is painful to watch when he tries to be funny. Screw waterboarding; the NSA should have hired him as the emcee for their interrogations.

Why Does Bill O'Reilly Keep Trying to Out-Funny Jon Stewart?

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 4th 2010 4:01PM
Bill O'Reilly has been on top of the cable news heap for fourteen years now, and for a good reason: whether you agree or not with his politics or his interview style, the man does a great job of putting his interview subjects on the spot and making them squirm. And, let's face it: squirmy interviews make for compelling TV.

One thing O'Reilly doesn't have is a sense of humor. At all. He's just too intense of a personality who takes himself too seriously to be funny. But, for some reason, whenever he gets in Jon Stewart's presence either on 'The Daily Show' or his own 'The O'Reilly Factor,' he spends half the interview belittling 'TDS' and its audience and trying to keep up with Stewart joke-for-joke instead of interviewing him on substance. And it never, ever works.

Here's the first half of the first part of his interview with Stewart, which aired on the 'Factor' last night. The second half is after the jump.

Jon Stewart Goes on 'The O'Reilly Factor' Tonight

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 3rd 2010 10:00AM
Jon Stewart on FoxIt isn't the first time that these two opposing television forces of Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly have collided. Their last match-up was in 2004. However, tonight on the Fox News Channel you can see the first of two parts of the big O'Reilly/Stewart smackdown during 'The O'Reilly Factor.' Two out of three falls! For the Championship of the World!

Well, maybe not any of that stuff, but it will likely be entertaining. Considering that I've watched O'Reilly on 'The Colbert Report' (Papa Bear came home) and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (it was edited for content), I can't see this particular meeting of the minds as anything major.

Of the two, Stewart seems the more savvy but it's likely that O'Reilly will be the winner of any political debate that occurs. After all, he controls the editing room.

Oh please leave political rants in the comments! I beg you! Please, please, please!

What You Missed Last Night: Democrats are just like Kevin on The Wonder Years

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 28th 2010 11:29AM
Ah, The Wonder Years. Kevin's older brother used to tease and bully him all the time. Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart used a clip from the show to illustrate what Republicans are supposedly doing to Democrats right now on healthcare, tax cuts, and many other issues.

He also makes a football analogy that no one in the audience gets.

Olbermann reacts to Jon Stewart's impersonation on Countdown

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 26th 2010 6:25PM
Remember last week when Jon Stewart turned his eye on pundit mimicry against MSNBC's rather large talking head Keith Olbermann?

It seems that Mr. Olbermann saw Stewart's glasses-removing "special comment" on The Daily Show, so Olbermann dedicated the end of Monday's show to a little "special comment" of his own. Get ready to hear something you may never hear again on a cable news pundit show for a rambling, incoherent and baseless attack on a public figure on either side of the political aisle: an apology!

Someone want to turn to The Weather Channel and check on Hell's wind chill? Because it may have just dropped to -2 Celsius.

What You Missed Last Night: Bill Gates talks about his foundation (and robots that love)

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 26th 2010 11:02AM
This is an interesting Daily Show interview with Bill Gates where he talks about the work of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, but I'm posting it because of a funny question that Jon Stewart asks him about a certain Microsoft competitor.
