Ralph Fiennes, 'Daily Show'Last night classically trained actor Ralph Fiennes -- a.k.a. Lord Voldemort in the 'Harry Potter' movies -- stopped by 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights., 11PM ET on Comedy Central) and, frankly, things got a little weird.

Host Jon Stewart asked Fiennes for his opinion on who would win in the unlikely event that former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain went up against Voldemort: "If they were in a sword fight, in your mind, who would be the victor?"

Fiennes pondered this briefly before saucily quipping, "Depends on the length of the wand."

Jon Stewart on the Loss of Herman Cain, Comedy Goldmine (VIDEO)

'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'From a comedy standpoint, it's easy to see why Jon Stewart is incredibly disappointed to see Herman Cain suspending his campaign for presidency. But up to the last minute, he remained comic gold. On 'The Daily Show' (11PM ET on Comedy Central), Stewart pulled up the video of the speech in which Cain made the announcement.

First, he had himself introduced before he'd even arrived -- or intended for his introduction to mean his bus. But the kicker was when he decided to placate his saddened supporters with an inspirational quote. An inspirational quote he selected from a movie ... well, from the closing theme song of the movie.

Piers Morgan Calls Herman Cain's Lawyer 'Shockingly Naive'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 2nd 2011 9:00AM
It's been a week of ups and downs for Piers Morgan. First, he mistook late comedian Patrice O'Neal for a woman (for which he has now apologized.)

Then he's observed with obvious glee as his former nemesis, 'Top Gear' host Jeremy Clarkson, has been vilified in the UK for saying on live television that striking workers should be executed.

Now Morgan has called Herman Cain's lawyer, Lin Wood, "shockingly naive." On last night's 'Piers Morgan Tonight' he quizzed Wood about whether, given the number of accusations against him recently, Cain is fit to be President of the United States.

Stephen Colbert Pleads With Herman Cain to Stay in the Race (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 30th 2011 4:00AM
'The Colbert Report'With the latest allegations that he sustained a 13-year extra-marital affair, Herman Cain is reportedly taking some time off to consider if he should stay in the race. Stephen Colbert took to the airwaves on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) to plead with him to stay.

"I'm saying this not just as a supporter, but as a broadcaster," Colbert said. "I need you in the race!"

He went on to say that this is an improvement over previous allegations as it shows he can sustain a consensual long-term relationship. Besides, he's still one affair behind Gingrich, who pundits are saying will be the likely recipient of lapsed Cain supporters. Guess the newer affair story is more important than the old ones.

'The View' Debates Herman Cain's Latest Scandal (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 29th 2011 2:10PM
Herman Cain is currently in the process of "reassessing his candidacy" after a Georgia woman came forward Monday alleging that she and the Republican presidential candidate were involved in a 13-year extramarital affair. This new revelation comes on the heels of allegations of sexual harassment from four separate women, all of which he denied fervently.

The ladies of 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) tackled the scandal in their 'Hot Topics' segment, and as usual, opinions different around the table. Whoopi Goldberg observed that this latest accusation isn't against the law, and wondered if it was the public's business at all. Sherri Shepherd said it would be hard to trust a man running for president who's been this deceptive in his private life.

Letterman Presses Herman Cain on Sexual Harassment Allegations (VIDEO)

David Letterman started off his 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) interview with Herman Cain by making fun of himself. "I'm no stranger to sexual scandal," he said, which drew a big chuckle from Cain. But then Letterman got serious about the sexual harassment allegations that have been leveled against Cain by several women, asking him if he would drop out of the race if they were proven true.

"One of two things will happen ... you'll be exonerated just like Justin Bieber ... or they will prevail and there will be somebody else coming forward" with documentation and more evidence. "Now will you resign if that's the case?" he asked.

Cain continued to deny that he had done anything wrong. "Let's be very clear about the allegations that have already been made. The reason that I went front and center in front of the media is that I knew there wasn't anything to it. There's no further documentation has come up. So we have moved on."

Then Letterman got even more incredulous. "So these statement are all false. All of these women are lying. They're all lying. They are all lying," he repeated.

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 9th 2011 2:30AM
Ross Matthews, 'Chelsea Lately'The topic of conversation for the 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) was predictably the ongoing scandal surrounding GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain. With a fourth woman coming forward, and this time revealing herself, with accusations of sexual harassment, it seems this is a story that simply isn't going to die.

Josh Wolf mentioned how Herman Cain keeps wanting to convince the media that he'd rather focus on talking about the issues than this scandal. But as Wolf points out, "You trying to force a woman to give you a b****** ... is kind of an issue!"

Herman Cain, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'According to Herman Cain, the sexual harassment allegations that have been laid at his campaign doorstep over the past week haven't been all bad. While he's planning a press conference to address the accusations directly, and affirms that "there's not an ounce of truth" in the claims, he also indicated on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM on ABC) that fundraising has actually improved.

"The day of ... these accussations, we had the highest fundraising day online in the history of this campaign and it has not stopped," he said. "The American people are saying, 'We are sick of gutter politics.'"

Colbert Worried With Herman Cain About China Developing Nukes (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 3rd 2011 5:15AM
'The Colbert Report'Herman Cain continues to say things that prove he has a limited understanding of foreign politics. He does admit his shortcoming and says he's been boning up, but he'd better hold off on answering questions until he does, based on a clip played on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

"I do view China as a potential military threat," Cain said in the clip. "They've indicated that they're trying to develop nuclear capability."

This immediately terrified Stephen Colbert, especially since they developed nukes in 1964.

Stewart Responds to Trump's Claim That He Was Racist on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Donald Trump thinks Jon Stewart should be taken off the air "for a while" based on a supposed impression he did of Herman Cain on Tuesday night's 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). Stewart spoke in Cain's voice as a continuation of Cain's response when asked if he'd ever paid anyone in regards to sexual harassment claims.

It wasn't one of Stewart's more clear ethnic accents, but Trump was incensed and took to the web to rant about it. Stewart got wind of it and decided that Trump was actually in "a unique position" to pass judgment.

Colbert on Cain's Sexual Harassment Allegations: 'Who Hasn't Been Accused?' (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert, 'The Colbert Report'Stephen Colbert was determined to side with Herman Cain on these allegations of sexual harassment from years ago. On 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), he showed how easy it is to misconstrue innocuous gestures as sexual harassment.

And quite frankly, who hasn't been accused of sexual harassment at one point or another in their lives, he argued. He played a clip of Cain being asked if he'd ever been accused of sexual harassment, and Cain responded by turning the question around on the reporter.

Sexual Harrassment Claims Change How Jon Stewart Sees Herman Cain (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 1st 2011 5:45AM
'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Thanks to recent allegations that Herman Cain may have acted inappropriately towards two female subordinates at the National Restaurant Association in the mid-1990s, suddenly Jon Stewart is seeing everything he does and says on camera in a new light. He showed a few examples on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central).

Particularly, Cain taking about black walnut flavored ice cream tasting good all the time, and that weird, slow smile he does at the end of his political campaign commercials. Stephen Colbert already challenged him to a slow-smile-off, but now Stewart is speculating that people will be hearing a very different kind of music in their heads when they see that self-satisfied look on his face.

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.

Stephen Colbert on Everyone Talking About Herman Cain's 9-9-9 Plan (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 19th 2011 4:30AM
'The Colbert Report'With Herman Cain the current frontrunner among the bevy of Republican presidential candidates, Stephen Colbert is almost kind of sort of ready to officially get behind him on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

Sure, Cain seems to be waffling over whether or not we need an electric fence as our border between the US and Mexico, but his 9-9-9 economic plan is sweeping the nation. It's on everyone's tongues, and Colbert ran a quick clip of just how many people are saying it.

The clip ended with Adolf Hitler shouting "Nein! Nein! Nein!" While Colbert saw this as an indication that Cain thought Hitler had some good ideas, the translation would seem to indicate being against the plan completely!

'Sandra' Palin Gives Her Thoughts on GOP Candidate 'Herb' Cain (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 6th 2011 4:30AM
'The Colbert Report'There's no such thing as a wrong opinion, but it's still important to gather as many facts as you can about the topic you're discussing before you go into it on a news program, or at the very least get their name right. Sarah Palin clearly missed that step in the process on a clip shown on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

In talking about GOP candidate Herman Cain, who shot to the top in a tie with Mitt Romney in the latest polls, she kept referring to him as 'Herb' Cain. "Herb Cain," she said. "He came from a working class family."

"Yes, Herb Cain is from a working class family," Colbert agreed. "I wonder where Herman Cain comes from? Someone should really ask Sandra Palin."
