by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 29th 2011 4:00AM
'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Inspired by the woman who pepper-sprayed her way to an Xbox 360 system at a Wal-Mart, Jon Stewart came up with a whole new genre of video game on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). The fact that the woman was allowed to buy the system and take it home, essentially rewarding her for this behavior, made him realize that pepper spray may be the weapon of choice in the future.

So he presented the new Xbox 360 first person sprayer, 'Black Friday.' In this game, you navigate the corridors of a store, armed with your trusty can of pepper spray. As you near your desired purchases, let loose to keep other shoppers from getting their hands on your prize. It's a game the whole family can play -- and at least one person in real life.

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 28th 2011 5:16AM
'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'With the advent of Twitter into the social landscape, our news broadcasts have started sounding pretty strange.

Now that we're getting instant responses and feedback from Twitter and other like sites, we're hearing Twitter handles instead of real people's names.

Kathie Lee and Hoda Joke About Anthony Weiner Twitter Controversy (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 2nd 2011 1:15PM
Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifrord on 'Today'Earlier this week, a controversy erupted around New York congressman Anthony Weiner and a photo sent from his Twitter account to a woman in Seattle. The photo was a close-up of a man's lower abdominal area (or "junk") in gray underwear. It has triggered an avalanche of puns and punditry, and this morning on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb took it as a prompt to talk about genitals in general.

Jon Stewart, a friend of Weiner's, offered his defense on 'The Daily Show,' saying he knows Weiner well enough to know that wasn't him in the photo. That caused Kotb to wonder who pays attention to what their genitals look like. "Men," said Gifford. "They've seen it from every angle and they just can't get enough."

Taking it one disturbing step further, Gifford said she wouldn't be able to pick her own genitals out of a lineup, and once more, she's not sure she's ever seen her own. We hope no one has her Twitter password.

'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart'During Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner, President Barack Obama and the event's host Seth Meyers hit Donald Trump with joke after joke, while Trump sat in the audience stony-faced.

Then, on Sunday, President Obama's surprise announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed by U.S. special forces preempted Trump's show, 'Celebrity Apprentice.'

On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) Jon Stewart tied it all together by saying he'd watched 'Celebrity Apprentice' to see if the "absolute shellacking" of Trump "had left a visible mark."

"I'm watching this 'Apprentice' episode. ... Even though the episode had been taped prior to the Correspondents' Dinner, the demolition of Trump at the Correspondents' Dinner was so thorough I thought it might actually supersede the rules of dimensional time and space and leave a mark on future episodes of 'The Apprentice'."
