Al Sharpton, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'While talking with Rev. Al Sharpton about the current political landscape on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Jon Stewart marveled at the possibility of Herman Cain winning the Republican nomination, and how significant that might be. Cain is the current Republican front-runner.

"The idea of a possible presidential race -- two African Americans squaring off against each other -- has to feel like an achievement for people who worked in the civil rights movement," Stewart said.

A note to Katie Couric and The CBS Evening News

Katie CouricKatie,

There's been a lot of talk lately about the third place ratings that The CBS Evening News continues to get. There are people saying that you aren't professional enough and that the show doesn't cover hard news the way it should. You even fired your executive producer and hired another, and then this week fired a producer for plagiarizing (and just what are those first person "Notebooks" if other people are writing them?). These are all things that you have to fix, but may I make one suggestion that might help immediately?

Don't lead your newscast with news about Don Imus on the day that there was a major bombing in Iraq.

The Daily Show: March 1, 2007

Jon StewartRob Corddry recently appeared on FOX News to promote his new show, The Winner. He ended his interview with "This crawl is chafing my nipples!" Aww. I really love Rob Corddry, and that's why I'm so disappointed that The Winner is a load of crap. I started watching a few episodes online and I couldn't make it through the first ten minutes of any of them. Sad.

"Ebony and Irony": The Whistlin' Dixie was all right. Reverend Al Sharpton was a good sport for agreeing to come on The Daily Show. This must have been such a crazy subject to talk about. I think both the Reverend and Jon handled it very well.

No sitcom for Sharpton after all

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 21st 2005 10:02PM
Al Sharpton still wants to be president, so starring in a sitcom probably isn't a great idea. Or, is it? At least, he doesn't seem to think so. He's putting to rest rumors that he is going to be in a new CBS sitcom called Al in the Family, which was going to focus on what Al Sharpton is best at: being Al Sharpton. It's not like Al hasn't been on television before (other than presidential debates), he had guest appearances on Boston Public and My Wife and Kids. Of course, Rev. Sharpton gave a great quote about why he won't be doing a sitcom, "I'm not interested in being Archie Bunker, I'm looking forward to becoming George Bush." That sounds like an announcement that he's running in 2008, doesn't it?
