Craig Kilborn Is Returning To Television

Craig Kilborn, who surprised everyone when he quit his CBS talk show in 2004, is coming back to television with ... a talk show! The New York Times describes the show as a mix of talk show and a "non-political 'Daily Show'." Longtime 'Daily Show' fans will remember that Kilborn was the first host of the Comedy Central show, before Jon Stewart came on and made it more political. The new show will be on FOX but it won't be a late night show on the network. Instead, it will be syndicated to local FOX stations. We might even see a preview of the show this summer....

Coming Soon: The Daily Sports Show

This actually sounds like a good idea: a Daily Show for sports. Let's just hope it doesn't start a trend. You know, a Daily Show for soap operas. A Daily Show for cartoons. A Daily Show for news. Oh, wait a sec... [via TV Tattle]...

What You Missed Last Night: The Daily Show predicts the future!

Every day on the morning shows, daytime shows, and cable shows, we see various "experts" and "trendspotters" who tell us what fashion, food, toy, and/or tech product is going to be the next big thing. Often these are ridiculous predictions, as The Daily Show pointed out last night. I'd write more, but my flowers are boiling over.

Colbert wants Stone Phillips's neck

And Geraldo Rivera's sense of mission too! That's Stephen Colbert of The Daily Show, who will soon have his own O'Reilly Report-ish show (but intentionally funny) on Comedy Central, titled (appropriately enough) The Colbert Report. Interesting interview in The New Yorker about the new show and the old studio (he's using The Daily Show's old studio)....

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

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. [Watch clips and episodes of The Daily Show and other shows at SlashControl.]...

What You Missed Last Night: Jon and Blago

It must be odd for someone who has been ridiculed and talked about so much on a talk show to then be on that talk show as a guest. Whether you're Bill Clinton on The Late Show with David Letterman or Rod Blagojevich on The Daily Show last night, it must be weird for both the guest and the host. In this clip (which Jon Stewart gives a special introduction to because the interview went long and got weird), Jon and Blago talk about a range of issues, starting with his hair. (Unedited interview here.) [Watch episodes and clips of The Daily Show and other shows at SlashControl.]...

Tough time slot to fill

A new version of Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn is being attempted to fill the slot it once held after The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Except this time Tough Crowd will feature host Greg Giraldo, a regular on Quinn's version. We're guessing Quinn turned down reprising the host of the irreverent and sometimes hysterical show because of the way the series was treated by executives looking at the ratings. They were miffed the show lost half the audience of The Daily Show. Maybe they don't understand that the reason The Daily Show does so well is because everyone turns off their real nightly news to watch Jon Stewart, then they turn on Letterman or Leno. The fact that Quinn kept anyone is pretty impressive. Other shows considered for the slot include another Giraldo series, Gone Hollywood, a D.L. Hughley project and a new Adam Corolla show. Please no more Corolla....

What You Missed Last Night: CNN will have to leave it there

I've never noticed how often the hosts at CNN - almost all of them - say the phrase "we'll have to leave it there" when they run out of time when interviewing a guest. But The Daily Show noticed it, and last night they were all over CNN about it. The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c CNN Leaves It There www.thedailyshow.com [Watch episodes and clips of The Daily Show and other shows at SlashControl.]...

Jon Stewart explains Fox News

Whatever your political opinions are and however your cable news tastes run, you have to admit that this Daily Show examination of how Fox News works is pretty smart. Not just as an explanation at how the news side works with the non-news side of the network, but as an explanation of how any organization can spin things their way. The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c For Fox Sake! www.thedailyshow.com [Watch clips and episodes of The Daily Show and other shows at SlashControl.]...

'The Daily Show' Beats Leno and Letterman in Ratings

This has been a historical week for Jon Stewart. First, around 200,000 people showed up for his Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear on the National Mall this weekend, and now comes news that his 'Daily Show' has topped usual late-night stalwarts 'The Tonight Show' and the 'Late Show' for the first time ever. According to Deadline, Nielsen ratings show that Stewart bested Jay Leno and David Letterman in the coveted 18-49 demographic for the month of October -- the first time any series other than 'The Tonight Show' or 'Late Show' has ever topped the list....

Why Bill Gates left The Daily Show so quickly - VIDEO

After his plug for Vista interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show on Monday night, Bill Gates practically sprinted off the set and out of the studio... before the director had a chance to cut to commercial. I interpreted it as his uber-geekiness/social handicap kicking in. I mean, this guy doesn't do talk shows or even watch talk shows! He's too smart for such things. Well, I was wrong. Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart showed what really happened. I should've known. Video is after the jump: [Via Digg] ...

What You Missed Last Night: Jon Stewart Surfs Chatroulette!

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.' The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c Tech-Talch - Chatroulette www.thedailyshow.com ...

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

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.

What You Missed Last Night: Jon Stewart, the ball, and the stick

It's the holiday season, and for the kids that probably means toys. Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart had a bone to pick with the National Toy Hall of Fame and the criteria to use when they choose toys to be inducted. Stick got in the hall before ball?
