Jon Stewart Responds to Bill O'Reilly Saying He 'Is Going to Hell' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 9th 2011 4:00AM
'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Wednesday night on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Jon Stewart took issue with Fox News' coverage of a war against Christmas. He said then, "If there has been a war, then Christmas is the aggressor nation." Stewart is referring to all the other religions that have been pushed aside by Christmas.

Bill O'Reilly took to the airwaves to respond to what Stewart said, making a particularly bold statement along the way. "Now there is no question that Mr. Stewart is going to hell," he said abruptly in the middle of his discourse.

"I make my living watching Fox News eight hours a day," Stewart retorted on his show. "I'm already in hell."

Jonah Hill, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'While both men agreed they wished Brad Pitt was a huge jerk, Jonah Hill tried to convince Jon Stewart that it simply wasn't so. How could a man be that handsome and a great guy? Alas, according to Hill on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), that's exactly what he is.

He even let Hill stay in his house in New Orleans for months while Hill was filming a movie. Hill did admit to having a lot of fun with the tourists who were stopping to see the famous Brad Pitt house. They'd get all psyched when he pulled up, and then confused and let down to see that it was just him.

When Stewart asked if Angelina Jolie was staying at the house as well -- was Pitt that nice? -- Hill had to admit that there is a limit to what Pitt was willing to give.

Republicans Hate 'Jersey Shore,' Love 'The Bachelor'

Democrat, Republican TV StudySnooki's poof apparently doesn't work its magic on Republicans.

A new study by Experian-Simmons found conservative-leaning viewers tend to favor reality programming like 'Dancing With the Stars,' 'The Bachelor,' 'The Biggest Loser,' 'MythBusters,' but one exception to that trend was 'Jersey Shore.' Also among GOP favorites is the History Channel's block of programming: 'Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy,' 'American Pickers,' and 'Swamp People.'

Two other popular liberal shows, 'Glee' and 'Modern Family,' topped the conservative list last year, but are no longer two of the favorite shows among Republican viewers, according to EW. They did, however, still rank high with those on the more liberal end of the political spectrum.

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

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 6th 2011 3:30AM
'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.

Bob Costas Talks About His Interview With Jerry Sandusky on 'Daily Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 2nd 2011 3:30AM
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.

Bono, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Bono stopped by 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) to talk about the (RED) campaign. It's a program helping to stop the spread of HIV and try to stop AIDS in its tracks, and they've made tremendous strides.

What (RED) does is make it easier than ever for people to get involved. Bono explained, "Sometimes people, you know, it's too complicated. They don't want to put on the marching boots. They just say how do I help?"

The answer is simple. Buy (RED) products -- which are available everywhere and include everything from shoes to iPad 2 Smart Covers to special edition Starbucks cards -- and a portion of those proceeds will go to help battle AIDS. Check out the Join(RED) website to learn more, and see some of the products available.

Betty White Decides to Start Naming Names on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

Betty White, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Watching the progression of the show from backstage, Betty White had a stark realization that she revealed on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). She's been going about her celebrity all wrong, striving to keep her personal life private.

Instead, she should be naming names. The drawback, though, is that she's pushing 90 now -- which by the way isn't an accomplishment, it's just something that happens -- and it's hard to remember the guys she's had.

Jon Stewart suggested she use headshots to remember them, but you don't always want to remember what they looked like. Sometimes the hazy glasses of memory will make things far better than they really were, and that can be a very good thing.

Jon Stewart Unveils First Person Sprayer Xbox 360 Game 'Black Friday' (VIDEO)

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.

Jon Stewart Wants to See a Film on Martin Scorsese's Childhood (VIDEO)

Martin Scorsese, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Martin Scorsese came on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) to find a host who was genuinely excited about his latest project. Jon Stewart had seen 'Hugo' the night before, and really enjoyed it. Scorsese was excited to have been able to make a movie his young children could watch.

But by the time he left the show, it was his own childhood Stewart was suddenly fascinated with. Scorsese painted a picture of him being sequestered into one room of an apartment because of health issues. He wasn't allowed to run and play with the other kids, or even laugh, he said. This, Stewart declared, would make a great film.

Jon Stewart Refuses to Believe Diane Keaton That Woody Allen Is Handsome (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 17th 2011 4:15AM
Diane Keaton, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'When Jon Stewart was growing up there were two different worlds happening. There was the world of infinite possibilities in which Diane Keaton was dating Woody Allen, and then there was the more expected one where she was involved with Warren Beatty. On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), she defended Allen, saying that he was handsome.

This, Stewart simply couldn't believe. She didn't make it any more believable when she cited Woody's glasses as one of the reasons he was handsome. Because near-sightedness is what all the ladies are looking for, Stewart presumed. But everyone knows women aren't as hung up on looks as men are, and so maybe she was attracted to Allen's wit and charm.

Jon Stewart Presents the Defense Jerry Sandusky Should Have Used (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 16th 2011 3:30AM
'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.

Jon Stewart Explores the Many Faces of Mitt Romney on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 15th 2011 4:30AM
'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'With so many Republican presidential debates, it's getting more and more difficult to find a different angle with which to cover them. So Jon Stewart decided to explore the phenomenon knows as "Mittface" in the CBS debate on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central).

It's the fun of analyzing Mitt Romney's expressions and reactions to what his opponents are saying at any given time. While his expressions are all disturbingly similar, it's fun to look for the nuances that could give us a peek into the candidate most consistent in the polls (he's usually second behind the constantly changing merry-go-round of front-runners).

Jon Stewart Wonders If Adam Sandler Makes Any Decisions For Himself (VIDEO)

Adam Sandler, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Any chance of talking about 'Jack & Jill' went right out the door when Adam Sandler walked onto 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) wearing a thick brown corduroy shirt. He explained that he was wearing it for his wife, who'd decided it was time he updated his look.

He went on to say that he'd hoped to stick around New York to catch the Jets game, but that his wife and kids told him that he could watch the game on television back in LA, so he was headed home instead. This led Jon Stewart to wonder when the last time was that Adam Sandler made a decision for himself.

According to Sandler, the sweet spot for independence is between 1AM and 6AM. That's when he's a wild man!

Nancy Pelosi Talks Effective Government, Burns Republicans on 'Daily Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 10th 2011 4:30AM
Nancy Pelosi, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'When you hear the expression "bless his heart," or some variation thereof, it usually means the person speaking things the person they're talking about is incredibly misguided or confused. But they're still a really nice person. That's how Nancy Pelosi described Republicans on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central).

The Democratic leader in Congress talked about the struggles Congress is having in figuring out how to govern effectively, while spending perhaps a bit too much time touting the higher popularity it enjoyed when it was controlled by the Democrats. 40% is more than 9%, but it's still a failing grade.

Bill Clinton, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Bill Clinton may not be president anymore, but he's still very much invested in the future of this country, and presents his strategy for creating jobs and climbing out of this economic downturn. More than that, though, his new book 'Back to Work' uses historical trends and data to instill hope in America that this is not an inevitable downward spiral. On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) he talked passionately about the state of the country.

You could tell that Clinton is very focused on the importance of hope and patience for the American public. He even managed to stay on task when Jon Stewart couldn't resist slipping in a joke at Herman Cain's expense, related to the sexual harassment allegations. Clinton just kept on pressing his message.
