Last night’s Daily Show saw Jon Stewart making, in his usual hilarious way, a pretty serious charge against NBC. He blasted the network for choosing to air an interview between Ryan Seacrest and Michael Phelps rather than airing a 6-minute tribute to the 7/7 London terrorist attack victims at the Olympics. Are American audiences really not interested in taking a moment to remember the victims of the London bombings?
"When you bring a Jon Hamm into a situation, things just happen." - as stated by Will Ferrell during his Daily Show interview alongside The Campaign co-star Zach Galifianakis. Given the seemingly random and very amusing direction of the interview, which involves an appearance by Mad Men's Hamm, the former SNL star probably couldn't have said it any better. Watch the video ahead!
Those of you who like your political updates with humor and a side of satire will be covered come this September when the Democratic National Convention takes place as the Imaginon: The Joe & Joan Martin Center in Charlotte, NC.

Jon Stewart's The Daily Show and Stephen Colbert's The Colbert Report regularly brutalize members of both parties, but those attacks are usually limited to a cutting wit and the keen edge of satire.

I don't usually care about the Hollywood gossip. However, every now and then there comes a story of a Hollywood encounter between two intelligent and well respected people, that strikes an interested beyond the tabloid. Such is the case during a segment on this evening's Piers Morgan Tonight when guest Seth MacFarlane tells a pretty interesting anecdote about a testy encounter with The Daily Show's Jon Stewart.
Bill O’Reilly appeared on The Daily Show last night with Jon Stewart to not talk about his new book “Killing Lincoln,” (Or “Bill O’Reilly Killing Lincoln” as Stewart titles it). The two engage in a bit of banter, which includes O’Reilly explaining about the $16 muffin.
It was just over a month ago that Jon Stewart paid a visit to the "belly of the beast" more commonly known as Fox News. That appearance saw Stewart pettifog about Common with Papa Bear Bill O'Reilly on The O'Reilly Factor. This time he went up against the much more balanced Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.

When a major show announces they are making the switch to HD, I find myself thinking, "Finally!" If you have an HD TV you know how annoying it can be watching shows that aren't produced in hi-def. The latest to get in on the treatment are Comedy Central's The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. They'll begin broadcasting in HD on January 4
The Daily Show might be a “fake news show” but it wouldn’t be a lie to say that many viewers learn more about current events and politics from that series than they do from the “real” news. So it seems fitting that The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart would have the opportunity to announce on live television that Barack Obama won the election.
