'Daily Show' Analyzes Survey Saying Congress Acted Like 'Spoiled Children' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 4th 2011 5:14AM
'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'In a recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey, 77 percent of people said they felt that politicians acted like 'spoiled children' in the weeks leading up to the debt-ceiling vote. Obviously all that posturing didn't sit well with voters on both sides of the political spectrum.

On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Jon Stewart turned to his 'Analysis Mob' to break it down.

Approval of Congress dropped to 14 percent in the poll, which lead Stewart to ask his analysts how they would describe the current climate in Congress.

"Americans are a forgiving bunch," said Jason Jones. "I see Congress more as a bunch of monkeys, high-fiving each other in celebration, having forgotten that mere moments ago they were throwing their own feces."

'The Daily Show' Goes Undercover -- Can They Catch the Bad Guys?As you may have heard, we're having a bit of an economic crisis in America. And taxpayers had to spend $700 billion on the much-hated "bailout" in order to rescue banks and other gigantic institutions. 'The Daily Show' isn't so happy about this. So on the latest episode (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), they went undercover to go after the bad guys who caused the economic meltdown.

What was the cause of our current crisis? According to Jon Stewart, the financial disaster was caused by banks selling housing loans back and forth -- until they realized that the loans were completely worthless. Now, correspondent Wyatt Cenac tries to confront the villains.

Jon Stewart Thinks Sarah Palin Is a Hypocrite, Debates the Dr. Laura 'N-Word' IssueWell, this particular controversy just might never end. Once again, we return to the issue of Dr. Laura Schlessinger, and her use of the "N-word." But now, we're adding Sarah Palin to the mix.

In case you have forgotten or haven't been paying attention: Dr. Laura used the "N-word" 11 times in a row while on her radio program. After the firestorm of controversy that resulted from this, Dr. Laura quit her show. Next, Sarah Palin instantly jumped to Laura's defense, claiming that Schlessinger's First Amendment rights were violated.

Specifically, Palin said that Laura had lost her right to freedom of speech. ... Now, on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Jon Stewart and his correspondents jump into attack mode -- and call Sarah Palin a hypocrite.

Citizens' Ideas to Plug Oil Leak on 'Daily Show'We Americans are an entrepreneurial, inventive bunch. On 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM), "Senior Petrologist" Wyatt Cenac is proud to share some of the ideas being put forward by "regular everyday Americans" to plug the oil well still leaking in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Americans by the hundreds have been uploading their ideas to YouTube," explains Cenac. "He figured out that hay absorbs oil. Kevin Costner -- or Billy Bob Thornton? -- has an idea he wants to try. Guess he's got some free time now."

The Daily Show investigates iFarting and the iPulling of fingers

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 23rd 2009 10:33AM
Please note that this is the last time you'll ever read the above phrase on TV Squad. At least I hope so.

Are you aware that there's a battle going on over iPhone apps? There are two companies fighting over who gets the right to have an application that reproduces sounds made via a certain bodily function. You can pretty much guess what it is. Wyatt Cenac at The Daily Show talked to the two CEOs on Tuesday's show. It always amazes me that people will agree to do these interviews and then say something so inane, like this guy's comment about Jackie Robinson. (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.)

Did The Daily Show really need to be live last night? - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 21st 2009 1:02PM
TDS InaugurationWhen the folks at The Daily Show announced that they were going to do a live broadcast from Washington on Inauguration Day, I'm sure a lot of people envisioned Jon Stewart behind a desk in some D.C.-area college auditorium, with up-to-the-minute field reports and maybe even a brief appearance from President Obama ... or at least someone near and dear to him.

What we got was Stewart sitting behind his New York desk, and ... pretty much a normal episode of TDS. In fact, nothing about it indicated to me that they needed to make it live. The only parts that came from the nation's capital, in fact, were a shot of reporter Wyatt Cenac at the Youth Inaugural Ball and a satellite interview with Bishop Gene Robinson, who did the invocation at the Lincoln Memorial concert on Monday.

Election Night: Comedy Central - VIDEO

Jon and Stephen
It's fantastic to see Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert team up on something other than an award show (not that I'm complaining about super-adorable Stewart/Colbert/Carell hugs, which warm my otherwise bitterly cold heart). It will be interesting to see how the boys react to the live results, but I'm most interested in seeing how Stephen Colbert stays in character. Check back later for videos Click on the jump for the full episode!

10:05: Man, those intros were hardcore. And how long is that bird going to stay on Stephen's shoulder? I'm waiting for a startled poo. I'm still not used to seeing Jon and Stephen together. It's too much awesome.

10:12: Hi, Jason Jones! Nice to see -- Whoa, what just happened? Something flashed on the screen, but I didn't catch it. Suddenly compelled to join the military, though.

Jon StewartBefore we jump right into things, let's take a moment to think about just how amazing these past two weeks of Daily Show have been. The program has always been pretty solid, but both the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention have provided beautiful fodder for both Jon and the correspondents, who seem to have finally hit their stride. This particular group of correspondents works best when they're all teamed up, and it really showed during convention coverage. From Jason Jones and Samantha Bee sucking face in front of hapless interviewees to Rob Riggle and Wyatt Cenac grillin' up some arugula in an elitist parking lot. TDS is taking another break next week and, boy, do they deserve it.

team must be exhausted. Last week was Tuesday through Friday on-location coverage of the Democratic National Convention in Colorado, and this week is the same from the Republican National Convention in Minnesota. I can't even imagine how new mommy-again Samantha Bee has been handling this, returning at the busiest time in months.

Anderson Cooper and TDS
"The Heart of Hopeness": Barack Obama delivered his acceptance speech the other night, to a stadium full of insanely excited Democrats. John Oliver filed a report live from the site of Obama's speech. Man, John has really been putting himself on the line this week, being incredibly annoying in front of so many overexcited people. I mean, chanting "Osama!" at a massive crowd of Obama lovers is almost a sure to bring about a beating, but he totally lucked out with some relatively mild verbal confrontation. Other great moments included dancing to Jeremiah Wright's "white friends" song and making his move on hot strangers. As we would see later in the episode, it seems like the Democratic National Convention brought out the friskiness in the correspondents.

Jon Stewart"Guess Who's Coming to Denver?": Man, I wish it were the Democratic National Convention all day, every day because it seems like it's providing endless, wondrous material for the show. Not only did they make me spend a good three minutes just laughing at Jon's crazy eyes while reacting to Governor Mark Warner's terrible speech (watch his eyes almost fall off his face when Jon says, "His speech suuucks"), but they've once again reminded me that Dennis Kucinich can do absolutely no jumping around without looking like an over-excited leprechaun. And he has a super-hot wife to make him feel better about any stupid, mean thing that I may say, so it's okay.

Speaking of spouses, that uncomfortably long footage of Bill Clinton looking slack-jawed and slightly baffled also sent me into a spin of uncontrollable laughter. Mouth-breathers are never not funny. In other, more eloquent words: This episode brought the lulz.

TDS"Guess Who's Coming to Denver?": The Daily Show is back! They'll be in Denver for the whole Democratic National Convention, workin' their shiny new set. It's pretty much just Jon's "j" desk and a whole lot of big screens hanging in the back. The gang was in full form, and I believe this was the most I've laughed at the show in a while. Perhaps it only feels that way because the show has been gone for a week and a Monday. Thank goodness they returned, because I was starting to get the shakes.

Daily Show"Dick Move of the Week": John McCain has been making more news with one of his new attack ads against Barack Obama, in which he calls Obama out for being an attention-seeking celebrity, just like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. That's not the bad part though. That honor goes to the fact that Paris' parents support McCain and have sent thousands of dollars for his campaign. Smooth move, my man. Smooth move.

Rapper or Republican?Quick news: Alaska's Senator Ted Stevens has been indicted for corruption charges. I knew The Daily Show would use any opportunity to bring out that clip of Stevens screaming, "NO!" I've missed that anger in my life.

Barack Obama recently returned form his trip the Middle East. In the meantime, John McCain has been struggling in the States, dealing with the likes of Schmidt's Sausage Haus and the Dalai Lama. I thought we were done talking about straight guy awkwardness the previous night. McCain looked terribly uncomfortable while the Dalai Lama held his hand. Just look at his other hand, fiddling with his suit pocket. He was probably all sweaty palms and clenched teeth that afternoon.
