Jon Stewart Grills Rep. James Clyburn on Healthcare Reform Menu (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 26th 2010 1:15AM
The Daily Show, Rep. James ClyburnThe Healthcare Reform meeting is grabbing headlines, but Jon Stewart is more concerned with the lunch menu at the event. On 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM), he grilled Rep. James Clyburn about what it all means.

"My colleague on the democratic side of the aisle appears to have gotten cole slaw, yet I have none," said Stewart. "Why is that? Can I have cole slaw, as well? I have clearly been loaded up with starch. That is an attempt by the opposition to weigh me down."

As for Clyburn, he likes salmon, but would prefer fried fish. We don't care who eats what, as long as they're making progress.

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

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 28th 2010 11:29AM
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.

'The View' Ladies Get Crazy Over Healthcare (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 21st 2010 3:20PM
The View, Whoopi Goldberg, healthcareThings always get a little crazy when the ladies of 'The View' talk about healthcare. Even Whoopi Goldberg had some trouble getting them to, well, shut up already!

But Barbara Walters came to her rescue by declaring "there's too much crosstalk!" You can bet they'll pick up the discussion on Monday, though.

Watch the video from TV's Top 5! after the jump.

MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan turns Morning Meeting into a Morning Melee

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 21st 2009 9:42PM
Morning Meeting, a horrid hour long morning news and shout show featuring former CNBC talking head Dylan Ratigan, invited Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on a recent show and conducted the kind of interview that would cause the Bill O'Reilly from that infamous Inside Edition clip to calm down. Although it would probably sound more like "calm the f*$& down."

Ratigan tried to take Schultz to the mat over the recent health care bill, but the only thing he accomplished is turning his own show into the kind of wall of incoherent noise that has dominated the cable news clusterf&$%. He has since issued an apology.

Don't count on Fox giving up Glee for Obama

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 4th 2009 10:08AM
President_ObamaThe only way Fox will air President Obama's prime time address next Wednesday will be if he joins the glee club. No, seriously, if the Prez could sing or dance with the kids at McKinley High School on the new Fox series, Glee, he'd have a better chance of getting air time than he does as the Commander in Chief. Fox is not expected to show President Obama's address to Congress.

Fox has already shown an unwillingness to interrupt prime time for President Obama. Back in March, the network chose not to air a press conference. To be honest, Obama has been on TV a lot more than President George W. Bush. All that prime time real estate is expensive, and the networks have squawked about how often Obama has requested the air time.

Ted Kennedy on Chicago Hope, talking about healthcare

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 26th 2009 5:29PM
Ted Kennedy died early this morning at age 77. Healthcare for everyone was one of Kennedy's major causes and it has been going on for quite some time. This clip is from a 1997 episode of Chicago Hope. It features Ted Kennedy and Ron Silver (he died this year too). What a great actor Silver was.

What You Missed Last Night: FOX News hosts are the new liberals

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 20th 2009 1:29PM
While I don't agree that most people get their news from The Daily Show or that it's more important than the news, I think it is must see TV because it's usually going to show you something in a way you've never seen before, and it will change the way that you watch news (whether it's FOX News or MSNBC, it doesn't matter). That's a good thing.

Like last night's summary of how one network is presenting news of town hall confrontations and how they compare to what has happened in the past.

What You Missed Last Night: Glenn Beck debates Glenn Beck on healthcare

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 14th 2009 2:25PM
The Daily Show is not a news organization, though I think we can all agree that it does some of the things that news organizations should be doing, such as going back into the video archives and seeing if there are contradictions in what a politician or TV news person says. Last night Jon Stewart talked about healthcare and how it affected Glenn Beck last year.

Stephen Colbert takes on Facebook and "death panels"

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 11th 2009 5:00PM
The big debate right now regarding the healthcare plan is the concept of "death panels." Not sure where or when this first came up, though last night, Stephen Colbert pointed out it was from Sarah Palin's recent Facebook posting that brought it to the public.

The scary part? The reality competition show that Colbert mentions at the end of the clip is something that we'll probably see at some point.

Stephen Colbert doesn't want his Sprite taxed

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 4th 2009 11:30AM
There's a lot of talk about healthcare these days (duh), and one of the ideas that is being proposed (or at least the idea of it being proposed is out there) is the taxing of soda. I drink a ton of diet soda, but it seems to me that some people think doing this means the end of the Earth. Stephen Colbert isn't going to stand for any new soda tax. (Video also here.)

The Daily Show correspondents battle over health plans

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 20th 2009 12:34PM
There's a battle right now over President Obama's plans for healthcare, but the battle isn't going to be as funny as this one between Daily Show correspondents Samantha Bee, John Oliver, and Wyatt Cenac (well, it might be as funny, but in a sad, shake-your-head sort of way). I never want to see back-testicles ever again. (Video also here.)

ER: The Heart of the Matter

ER, Pratt and Gates(S13E06) So, in the case of Ames vs. Kovac, the jury found in favor of the defendant. Shocker. What, Luka gets to keep his job? What will ER do now? Hi, I'm Jen, and I am reviewing ER this week for Rich Keller, who has a really cool gig tonight. In the interest of full disclosure, despite my opening snarkiness, I am a fervent, weekly fan of ER, and have been for years.
