The Daily Show: March 15, 2007

Jon Stewart"President Bush: ¿Dónde Está?": "Sensitive issues such as corn and beans" is pretty much my new favorite phrase right now. I will find a way to work it into a conversation some time in the next 24 hours. Trust me.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has confessed to multiple acts of terrorism, including the 9/11 attacks and letting the dogs out. Calling him the "Horatio Sanz of Jihad" was interesting because as soon as I saw that awful picture again, I thought of Sanz's appearance as Mohammed on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update".

South Park: Cartman Sucks

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 15th 2007 11:42AM

south park(S11E02) I think the basic idea behind this episode is summed up by the "straight" priest at Camp New Grace when he informs the "confused" residents of the camp that they are like paper clips, and that like paper clips, God wants them to be straight, nevermind the fact that they were created "not straight" to begin with. At the end of the episode, Butters also sums it up nicely when he says, "I wasn't confused until everyone started telling me I was."

The AmeriCone Dream is not Colbert-worthy

by Annie Wu, posted Mar 15th 2007 11:22AM
AmeriCone DreamEver since Ben & Jerry's came out with Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream flavor ice cream, I've been on a frantic search for a pint. Even with the aid of the No Fact Zone blog's map, my quest has been fruitless... until today. Around noon, I got a panicked phone call from my friend, who told me that I needed to go to a nearby cafe as soon as possible because the dessert freezer was stocked with pints and pints of AmeriCone Dream. Of course, I picked one up as soon as possible and rushed it home. I had been waiting for this moment all my life (by "all my life", I mean "for the last few weeks") and I finally -- finally -- had a pint of the coveted ice cream. Waiting for my spoon. Waiting to turn into melty soup in my tummy.

Well, I've had a bit and, with great sadness, I am here to report that... I'm actually a little disappointed. Actually, I think this is the first time I haven't felt an overwhelming urge to polish off an entire pint of Ben & Jerry's in one sitting.

TV Squad lists your season and series premieres and finales

by Richard Keller, posted Mar 15th 2007 10:31AM

the shieldHola, mi muchachos and muchachoettes! It is I, Schedule Boy, back from wherever the hell I was. I'm here this time to present a comprehensive list of upcoming season and series premieres and finales for you, my adoptive TV Squad family.

What a crazy season its been! Shows that had so much potential (The Nine, Studio 60) struggled to stay on the air, while others (Ugly Betty, Friday Night Lights, Jericho, 30 Rock) surprised us with their growing fan bases and popularity. Then there were shows like ER that made a sudden comeback and ones like Gilmore Girls and Scrubs that didn't seem to find their way for the first half of the season. Well, at least we could be confident that hits like Grey's Anatomy, American Idol, 24 and Lost would carry us through the season. Then again, maybe not. Like I said, crazy season.

So, sit back, relax, and enjoy this fine presentation, presented in color with limited commercial interruption. You can find the list of premieres and finales (as well shows returning from hiatus) after the jump. Remember, dates are subject to change, so we'll be updating as time moves forward.

Jon StewartChris Dodd blogged about his Daily Show experience. That's so young! That's so hip! Nice job, Mr. Dodd, you tech-savvy cat. I loved his MySpace page, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little disappointed by the lack of "angles" pictures.

"Eight Men Out": Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez is doing... stuff... again. Senior Legal Correspondent Aasif Mandvi elaborated on Gonzalez's plea of ignorance and his usage of the race card. I'm hearing from a lot of Mandi fans, but I still don't see what's so amazing about him. He's okay, yeah, but am I missing something greater here?

Jon Stewart"Cheney's Clout", "'08 Simple Rules: For Dating Our Withdrawal": Jon talked about the clout-loosening stylings of our very own Vice President. I don't think I've ever heard the word "clout" used so many times in my entire life. "This man is very, very un-good". The Democrats aren't doing so hot either. Their presentation for their plan for troop withdrawal was less than clear. I haven't heard someone accidentally say "19--" in a long, long time.

Maybe I blacked out for a few minutes, but I didn't see any correspondents in this episode. Not even a field report! Hmm. I don't think that's happened in a while. I suspect YouTube/Google is holding all of the correspondents hostage until Viacom pulls the lawsuit. It is the only logical explanation.

Jon Stewart"President Bush: ¿Dónde Está?": Bush toured Latin America to try and make some friends. And now, Mayan priests are ridding the air of what Bush left behind. Hmm.

Senior New Correspondent Aasif Mandvi was recently made an official Senior Correspondent, as the "New" in his title suggests. Although I still haven't quite warmed up to him, having Mandvi on board may mean even less face-time for Rob Riggle, which is always good news. Anyway, Mandvi touched on the news that Halliburton is moving their CEO from Houston to... Dubai.

First Colbert gets his own ice cream, and now a pork chop?

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 11th 2007 10:01AM

stephen colbertJust reading the description of The Stephen Colbert, a pork chop from Trio's Restaurant in Little Rock, Arkansas has me salivating like Pavlov's dog:

If you love freedom, and we know you do, you'll love this porkchop: a porterhouse cut pork chop marinated in an apple marinade, grilled, and covered with a South Carolina peach & ginger barbeque sauce served with Sweet Home black-eyed peas, chipotle-white cheddar mashed potatoes and sautéed Swiss chard.

David Alan Grier developing news show for Comedy Central

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 10th 2007 7:07PM
david alan grierFake news must be Comedy Central's bread-and-butter these days. The network has no fewer than three fake news shows: The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and The Showbiz Show with David Spade. Now it's considering a fourth faux news program for its lineup. This time, it's The Chocolate News, starring David Alan Grier.

David Alan Grier is one of the funniest comedians out there right now, but nothing ever seems to stick for him. He was hilarious on Bonnie Hunt's short-lived show, Life With Bonnie, and on In Living Color back in the early 1990s. Mostly, though, he just plays great supporting roles or guest stars on current television shows.

Grier is currently rounding up writers and other talent to appear in the pilot he's pitching to Comedy Central. He has also agreed to host a new improv show on NBC this spring called Thank God You're Here.
