You don't watch much Jon Stewart do you.

1.) He wasn't serious.
2.) He does things like this all the time. Once on his show, he, with a straight face and somber tone, asked Billy Bob Thornton if his baby boy could "bang" Billy Bob's baby girl. Had me in stitches. He'd asked this blonde actress...forget her name...the same question on a previous show with the same effect. He does have guts.

Though he did own that fool in the bowtie. TIP: Never insult a professional comedian.

Stwewart took those fools to school (Tucker Carlson especially). What made me laugh the hardest was how the democrat host didn't even say a word; he just let his co-host get ripped apart.

What I find most amusing about the daily show is that its the most unfiltered of all the us news programs (if you can call it that). He tears into both sides equally hard and the show does a good job of exposing how the 'real news' is more theatre and less news. When Stewart was on O'Reilly, O'Reilly told Stewart that most of the people that watch his show are young, uneducated dope-smokers. To get back at Fox, neilson's did a survey to either confirm or deny O'Reilly's comments about the daily shows audience. The results were hilarious:

No WAY! Stewart and the Daily Show are so totally liberal, they know it and flaunt it. Yes they do take shots at both sides, but it is so far from equal. Stewart is aways taking shots at Bush in just about every episode, sometimes there might be a few against Kerry in there but its primarily targeted at republicans.

I'm not complaining, I love that they do that. Bout time a show like this was put out to counter Fox news and level the playing field.

lmao, that was hilarious, by the end he looks like he is about to just get up and leave.

I watch a lot of Sewart. He was definitely trying to deliver a serious message, but the hosts were expecting him to be joking around. Instead he took them to task for glorifying political extremities and promoting it in a theatrical manner.

Jon Stewart has become a total ass, which is why I stopped watching his show a couple of years ago. If he wants to go on Crossfire and take them to task, fine. But if you want to switch roles and be a "serious" person on a "serious" political show, leave all of your comedic pretenses at the door and have a thoughtful discussion. People do that all the time - they're actors, but they go on 'The Tonight Show' and act like normal people. They don't hide behind their theatrical shield and use it as license to insult the host.

Enjoy, Jon. Things were so much better when you played both sides of the aisle.

JON STEWART 'DAILY SHOW' IN SURPRISE AUDIENCE -- DROP
Sun Oct 17 2004 20:30:24 ET

COMEDY CENTRAL's 'DAILY SHOW' has experienced surprise audience erosion -- despite a publicity push by host Jon Stewart.

Stewart, who announced last week that he plans to support John Kerry, pulled 1,040,000 total viewers for month of September -- down 7% from August, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

Jumbo hype from media writers and a bestselling book apparently has failed to translate into any TV audience improvement.
