Jon Stewart.. and the Daily show - Page 5

post #201 of 1047
They have come back and have been seriously on fire. I don't think I ever laughted as hard as when he said the White House press corp and been replaced by real reporters.

I do miss his giant pimp desk. That was sweet

"...And, if anyone out there thinks I was hard on Mr. Goldberg, I can assure you it's because I am Anti-Semetic."

Fried fuckin' gold.

But I miss the couch.

Anybody see the "Cooter opposes DUKES OF HAZZARD movie" segment with Stephen Colbert last night?

That was absolutely hilarious!

If you missed the episode, it's repeating tonight at 8pm ET.

Best part - when Colbert disagreed with the NAACP representative about lynching blacks being "fun."
And of course the frat guys discussing Bo and Luke's packages.
post #205 of 1047
The whole episode was great, especially the Novak stuff in the beginning, and even the Miles O'Brien's interview.
post #206 of 1047
The line with the NAACP guy about lynchings was gold. Stewart and company were definitely firing on all cylinders in that entire show.

Agreed! Also love when Colbert is showing showing the clips of Simpson and asking him if he wanted to "bounce that"

Did you hear what happened to Novak as a result of his outburst?

Quote:
NEW YORK -- CNN took veteran political columnist Robert Novak off the air late Thursday after he uttered an expletive and walked off the set of "Inside Politics" while it was still on the air. Novak's outburst happened 10 minutes before the end of the show in the midst of an exchange between Novak, fellow analyst James Carville and "Inside Politics" anchor Ed Henry. They were talking about the possible Senate candidacy of Florida congresswoman Katherine Harris when Carville needled Novak and tried to interrupt. "He's got to show the right-wingers that he's got backbone," Carville said. "Go ahead, the Wall Street Journal editorial page is watching. Show them you're tough."
The full article I read this morning said that CNN had suspended indefinitely.

"I do not associate my soul with things of that nature." Terrific. Did they call up the NAACP and say "Give us the most uptight spokesman you've got."?
post #210 of 1047
I realize this a while back but I really enjoyed the segment on the race to get the DNC chairmanship.

Rob Cordry is walking through a bunch of media displays set up for each of the people in the running and many of them were quite elaborate. Al Sharpton is sitting there with a basic table and a white sheet on it.
He recognizes Cordry and looks up at him as if to say hi or something. Cordry then does a half-turn toward Sharpton, looks down at him with a disapproving look and says before he walks away, "Sorry, don't have any spare change".

The Daily Show is one of the worst shows on TV. And Jon Stewert is not even funny. Crickets chirp after he tells a "joke".

Ummm, no.

BTW, have there been no new shows this week because of the hurricane/aftermath?

I think so. I want to believe they're not "reporting" on it out of respect.
post #214 of 1047
They covered 9-11 not too long after the event, didn't they? Of course, there aren't any terrorists to make fun of in this scenario. And even making jokes about the government's poor response wouldn't work because it's not a funny subject at all.
post #215 of 1047
I already know where the comedy lies in this tragic situation. They will obviously go to the "why the fuck are these cameramen just following looters around and not doing anything". I think thats where they will go with it.
post #216 of 1047
I think the daily show just happened to be off this week.
Were they off last week? I don't remember. Most of the other late night shows have been off the last two weeks as well (Letterman, Conan, Leno)

I think they'ed go that route as well. More or less mock how the media covered it just like they did with that airplane that crashed in Toronto. "It wasn't a miracle at all! It was the people doing their jobs correctly!!" Gold.
post #218 of 1047
Last week they were still on, but I'm pretty sure that it's just a coincidence that they're off this week.
post #219 of 1047
Anyone else catch the first of what is to be a four day "special report" called Evolution Schmevolution? It seemed to have a weak guest segment but the rest was great.

Nice quote, "Are we characters in a dubious fairly tale written thousands of years ago in the depths of human ignorance or random globs of cells that got a little luckier than the shit that grows on our shower tiles?"
post #220 of 1047
What was that guest creature on Thursday night's episode with the 3 foot neck, pallor of a corpse and razor blades for collar bones? I hope they piped in the rarefied air to make it more comfortable.


It's nice to see John admit that this Evolution thing went on for 2 days more than needed.

Agreed. Especially when there is so much comedy fodder in the daily news right now.

Emmy x 2. They should have made Tucker Carlson hand him both awards. Go Jon!



I know this should technically go in The Emmy thread but I wanted to put it here instead.
post #223 of 1047
Rod Cordry's story on the Green Bay Packalope may be on the funniest things I've seen this year.
post #224 of 1047
That guy was fucking scary. I can't believe people like that exist.
post #225 of 1047
Bill muthafunkin' O'Reilly is on the show tonight. I'm all giddy with excitement to hear Fox's most notoriously obnoxious pundit try to play nice with Stewart.

I wonder if Stewart will try to pull the punches, or if he'll go after O'Reilly like the occasional pitbull he can become.
post #226 of 1047
I'd bet that both Jon and Bill will pull their punches, and any partisan banter will fairly innocuous.
post #227 of 1047
"we add insult to injury...but you add injury."
post #228 of 1047
Man, O'Reilly's fun to watch when he's uncomfortable.

I didn't see any discomfort. That interview was pretty funny I thought. Stewart couldn't have gone after O'Reilly; Bill is smart enough not to fall into that hole. It made me kinda sad since you can clearly see O'Reilly is a smart guy and is totally conscious of what he's doing. He simply doesn't care.

But again, I thought the interview was great fun. Hope he comes on again.

I didn't catch him on this time, but I noticed this the last time he was on The Daily Show. I've become less infuriated with the things that I see him say, because I realized that he's just an actor who found a schtick that makes him cash.

O'Reilly's "traditionalist" schtick is pretty grating, but Hannity is way ahead of the pack in the obnoxious category.
post #232 of 1047
The interview was pretty tame. The only real jabs I saw were the "injury" line Stewert threw out and O'Reilly calling Jon a "pinhead." It looked like it could have gotten ugly at the end, but Jon quickly turned the conversation around to promote the book. It was fun interview to watch, despite no real fireworks.
post #233 of 1047
Honestly, outside of the Crossfire stint, Jon Stewart goes limp when talking to the conservative right ALL THE TIME. For all the shit they give the Bush administration and their cronies, when members actually show up on the daily show stewart is as ineffective as the rest of the media in calling them on their shit.

Obviously you can't have the thing turn into a shouting match or just a berating of the guests views, but he rarely actually pushes the envelope when people are sitting in the couch.
post #234 of 1047
Of course not. That kind of confrontational, us vs. them, beat-guests-with-a-stick "debate" is precisely the reason that he spends so much time bashing those "punditry" programs. Why the fuck would he steer his own show into provoking situations suitable for Great Moments In Punditry As Read By Children? That would be unbelievably retarded of him.

Moderate discourse and calm debating of points is exactly what he's fighting the media for, and he puts his money where his mouth is. Great for him.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that. O'Reilly has always felt like a guy getting paid to do a job...one that he's quite good at, I'll admit, but he's never fallen into the Coulter/Hannity area where he actually believes the crap he sells.

It seemed particularly obvious on The Daily Show because he kept fighting an urge to smile. I think Stewart was just trying to get him to break character.

BTW, great job Astromarine, that is the most concise description of his show that I have ever seen.

Can't let our President have a visit from "Aunt Flo". Fantastic. Just fantastic.
post #238 of 1047
Something I noticed while watching the other day:

That bald correspondent is awful. I demand more Samantha Bee.
post #239 of 1047
Which one? I'm a fan of Rob Corddry, but the other guy annoys me to no end.


*Edit: The other guy is Dan Bakkedahl.
post #240 of 1047
Bakkedahl's really bad so far. But, of course, it took me a while to warm up to Rob Corddry, and I didn't LOVE him until his Boston convention report.

"Come ahn, Cahrddry!"

I agree with your great post there Astromarine. But I am not asking for crossfire from Jon stewart, when these right wing conservatives come on the show. I am just asking for legit questions...something like the white house press corp has finally started doing with Scott Macclellan (sp?). I don't want jon stewart to get up there and start lambasting the guests, but I would like some legit questions and something deeper than stuff akin to "hey, why are we so different?" or "why can't we all just get along?" and the other limp BS questions he goes trhough.
post #242 of 1047
I don't think that's even remotely close to the type of questions he was asking of O'Reilly. He just isn't going to lower himself to O'Reilly's form of discourse of baiting the audience and trying to further push his agenda of polarization. Stewart was delightfully incredulous throughout the entire interview whenever O'Reilly said something nonsensical, so I wasn't disappointed at all.
post #243 of 1047
Rob Cordry driving to the front of his stretch SUV limo was too great.
post #244 of 1047
Rob Corrdry's whole piece on oil usage is a instant classic.

I think its one of the best things I have ever seen done on the Daily show.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - An employee of the Comedy Central program "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" has committed suicide, leading the network to suspend production of Monday night's episode of the program, a spokesman confirmed.

Bill Clarey, 25, took his own life over the weekend, according to the network. A former "Daily Show" intern, Clarey also worked as a receptionist at the program's offices in New York.

"Bill Clarey, a young staff member of 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,' passed away over the weekend. He was a wonderful and dedicated employee and all of us at Comedy Central and 'The Daily Show' are devastated by his loss. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends," the network said in a statement.

Comedy Central has sent grief counselors to the "Daily Show" set to help its employees, sources said, who first learned of the suicide upon coming to work Monday. The network was scheduled to shoot a week's worth of new episodes before shutting down for the final two weeks of the year. The network will air a "Daily Show" repeat instead of the regularly scheduled episode.
post #246 of 1047
As much as I miss Stephen Colbert's take on this, Rob Corddrey's "This Holiday Season in God" was absolutely fantastic. Rob had just the right amount of incredulous amusement at the stories he was reporting on. The best moment had to be when Rob pulled out the God Machine's not talked about brother, the Gay Machine. What could be funnier than Rob pulling on a dildo strapped on a stick? A cameo by Huey Lewis promoting his appearance in the Broadway play Chicago this winter. This skit was just brilliant.

Bee Bee Boo Bee Boo Bee Bee....Boop!
post #247 of 1047
A fun introductory episode for the New Year!

Stewart's interview with Brosnan was great and Jason Jones' report on the atlatl was one of his funniest.
post #248 of 1047
"Coot off!"

Brilliant.
post #249 of 1047
Wait, was there a new episode I missed? I thought they returned from the holiday break tonight?
post #250 of 1047
The funniest thing I've seen this week was Rob Corddry bitchslapping Nate Corddry in the kitchen. "What's up bitch!". Awesome!
