Gaysylvania on 'The Daily Show'Conservative activists might be a little confused, said Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM). Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has crossed party lines to work with Democratic Senator Charles Schumer on the issue of immigration. But one Republican voter wonders if the recent move has to do with Graham's sexuality.

"The gentleman says to me, 'Ask Tracy Morgan if he never saw 'Spider-Man' because Tobey Maguire owes Tracy Morgan $75,'" said Stewart. True or False?

Robin Williams on 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'More cow valve! When 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM) host Jon Stewart asked Robin Williams how his post-surgery heart was doing, the actor didn't mince words.

Always quick with a routine, this one a Christopher Walken impression, "More cow valve," Williams painted a not so lovely image.

"The wonderful thing about a cow valve is you can [bleep] standing up," Williams said, causing Stewart to double over in laughter -- or horror.

"I did not need that image," Stewart said. Us too Jon, us too.

Lewis Black on his new special, The Daily Show, and the Root of All Evil

by Nick Zaino, posted Sep 4th 2009 11:16AM
Lewis BlackFor thirteen years, Lewis Black has been ranting and raving as a correspondent for The Daily Show, venting about all things political and pop cultural. For much longer than that, he's been a an actor, a playwright, and stand-up comedian, playing clubs and theaters everywhere around the country.

He taped his latest special, Stark Raving Black, earlier this month in Detroit for a fall release in theaters October 8th before it heads to a new premium HB cable channel called Epix, where it will debut December 5. (Black also filmed a documentary about his transition from a writer to a comedian - he's unsure where that will end up). And Big Bang Theory fans will be happy to know he'll be doing a cameo on the show September 28. I spoke with him by phone last week.

Why release the new special theatrically?

In order to... I think... I've got no idea. Everyone around me seemed to think it was a smart idea. Why not? I'm interested in seeing how that works and if it does work. It's another way to reach people.

Will Stewart and Cramer get into a slap fight on Thursday? - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 11th 2009 10:48AM
Stewart and CramerAt least we know one thing about Jim Cramer: He may not have been able to predict the collapse of the Dow, but at least he has the cajones to face the comedian that's tearing him to pieces.

That's right, folks: Cramer will be appearing on The Daily Show on Thursday to defend himself in the war of funny he's gotten into with Jon Stewart and his writers. If you didn't see TDS last night, Stewart shot back at Cramer, who went on various NBC shows to defend himself against TDS' "turd mining," as Stewart called it. In this case, it was a compilation of clips that showed Cramer sticking with Bear Stearns shortly before its 2008 collapse. That, of course, was after Stewart and company ripped CNBC as a whole for missing the current crisis. Video of last night's segment, which was dubbed "Cramer vs. Not Cramer: Basic Cable Personality Clash Skirmish '09!"

Colbert's WristStrong bracelets net $171,525 for charity

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 24th 2008 12:27PM
Stephen ColbertLeave it to Stephen Colbert and the Colbert Nation to turn a parody of Lance Armstrong's "LiveStrong" cancer awareness bracelet into a massive donation to a charitable cause. As the AP reports, since Colbert began selling his red "WristStrong" bracelets as part of his "wrist awareness" campaign, begun in response to Colbert breaking his own wrist, he has raised an incredible $171,525. And, on last night's broadcast, he presented the proceeds to The Yellow Ribbon Fund, a real organization that helps injured service members.

Stephen Colbert continues to find ways to turn his mock commentator into a true industry leader, all the while keeping tongue firmly in cheek. Is it any wonder that he's surpassed Jon Stewart as the buzz du jour of the teen and college set? Personally I really hope we get a Democrat in office in this next election, even if only to see how the decidedly right-winged Colbert persona is able to respond to everything he or she does.

Daily Show correspondents love candidates and costumes

by Annie Wu, posted Jan 9th 2008 4:37PM
Daily Show CorrespondentsThe Daily Show correspondents and analysts and very busy and important, so viewers will probably never get a chance to see the everyone show off their comedic chops at the same time. So, pore over this his GQ blog post, because it's probably going to be the closest thing we'll get to a display of their group genius.

In the article, the correspondents share their thoughts on various presidential candidates and some of their strangely hot wives. They also seem to have spent quite a bit of time thinking about the magic weight loss of both Mike Huckabee and Subway's Jared (Samantha Bee: "They've both got one pair of giant pants somewhere in their closet that they pull out every so often: Now three of me can fit in these pants!"). I don't think this is an excerpt from a larger, soon to be in-print piece, but I'm still holding out a little hope.

Rob Riggle just wants a fair basketball game - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 14th 2007 1:04PM

rob riggleLast year, I mentioned a site called RejectedJokes in which comedy writer Ben Schwartz performed all the jokes he wrote that were rejected by the likes of Letterman and SNL's Weekend Update (he's a freelancer for both).

Ben's latest gig is creating videos for the Web site Super Deluxe. Below is a video he made featuring Rob Riggle (The Daily Show) as the coach for the Washington Colonels, a basketball team that has lost 125 matches in a row. Could it be that Riggle's team is that bad, or is it because their rival, the Bronx World Travelers, always bring things like stools and mini trampolines onto the court?

Celebrity blogs you should be reading

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 17th 2007 1:40PM

John HodgmanA while back, I showcased some blogs that celebrities were (at the time) keeping. David Duchovny had one for a while, but it was just to promote one of his movies and he stopped it. Zach Braff had one for Garden State, but doesn't update it as much as he used to at his new site (though it's still pretty entertaining). And of course we know that Rosie O'Donnell updates hers, a little too much probably.

But there are other TV celebs who blog too, so it's time for an update. After the jump, a list of some of the better blogs out there.

Here are the nominees for the 2007 TCA Awards

Jon StewartThat's the Television Critics Association, the organization that represents over 200 TV critics nationwide and in Canada. They've revealed their nominees for their annual awards, and while a lot of the usual shows make the list, there are a few surprises as well. Some of that has to do with their choices, and some of it has to do with the categories they have and the way they nominate (for example, there aren't separate categories for "Best Performance in a Drama - Male" and "Best Performance in a Drama - Female," it's all under "Individual Achievement in Drama."

The list is after the jump.

The cost is 160 points (I don't have Xbox, but if you do, then I assume you know what that means), or two bucks per episode.

EFF sues Viacom over YouTube video takedown

by Brad Linder, posted Mar 22nd 2007 4:44PM
Stephen ColbertRemember how Viacom asked YouTube to remove 100,000 videos? Then after Google takes down as many videos as it can, Viacom sues the company for $1 billion, saying Google is profiting from Viacom content including clips from The Daily Show and The Colbert Report?

Right, so now, about a week later, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has turned around and sued Viacom, claiming that one of the videos in question was actually a parody of The Colbert Report, and protected under fair use. The video, produced by MoveOn parodies both Stephen Colbert's schtick, and MoveOn's strategy of using online petitions to effect social change.

I'd embed the video, but as I've pointed out, it's no longer up on YouTube. You can, however, still check it out at Falsiness.org.
