Bob Costas, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'If you were nearly dumbfounded by Jerry Sandusky's telephone interview with Bob Costas, you weren't alone. On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Costas admitted he was surprised Sandusky's lawyer suggested it, and even more flabbergasted by how raw it turned out to be.

In an era where interviews are so packaged, and the interview subject is so prepared as to be almost scripted, this interview was a real anomaly. Both Costas and Jon Stewart talked about Sandusky's delay in definitively saying "no" to the question of him being sexually attracted to young boys, but he was very quick to say he wasn't a pedophile.

Monday night Bob Costas interviewed former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky about his alleged inappropriate contact with young boys and the subsequent 40-count criminal indictment he now faces. The interview on NBC news magazine show 'Rock Center' took many by complete surprise, including Costas.

Speaking on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' Tuesday, Costas said that he was in a Manhattan TV studio prepping for an interview with Sandusky's attorney, Joseph Amendola, when, "no more than ten, fifteen minutes before the cameras were to roll, Amendola says, 'What if I can get Sandusky on the phone?'"

'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'After hearing Jerry Sandusky being interviewed by Bob Costas about his alleged inappropriate contact with young boys, Jon Stewart was stunned on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) by his weak defense.

"Sandusky: You're a defensive coordinator," he said. "You should have been able to coordinate a better defense."

When asked by Costas if he was attracted to young boys, the former Penn State coach didn't vehemently deny it. Instead, he gave a meandering response that did deny attraction, but not as definitively as it probably should have. So Stewart presented a defense Sandusky should maybe have implemented two decades ago.

Jerry Sandusky Tells Bob Costas: 'I Shouldn't Have Showered With Those Kids' (VIDEO)

'Rock Center'Last night while ABC aired its exclusive interview with Gabrielle Giffords, NBC's 'Rock Center' aired its own exclusive as Bob Costas talked to former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky and his attorney. Discussing allegations against him of sexual abuse dating back to 1994, Sandusky -- who has been charged on a 40-count indictment -- protested his innocence.

The interview made for uncomfortable viewing at times, with Sandusky admitting that he had, at least, made some highly questionable choices in his interaction with children. When Costas asked if he was "completely innocent and falsely accused in every aspect?" Sandusky replied "I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them and I have touched their leg. Without," he added, "intent of sexual contact."

Watch the interview after the jump.
