I'm curious how many of you here watch the Daily Show regularly. Four days a week? When you can? How often do you watch?
Me, I've got the TiVo recordining every episode. Drives me nuts when they go on vacation, though, and don't feed any listing information to TiVo. Then my TiVo ends up recording every episode they show each day, which means it records five+ episodes a day unless I tell it not to.
Whenever it's new I make the effort to watch it. I hope the Colbert Report is good. He's hilarious on every show I've seen him on(see also Strangers with Candy, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law), I just hope his humor isn't spread too thin by having his own show.
Colbert seems like a bit of nerd... hmm, CBR interview in the waiting?
Are you referring to the Viggo Mortensen interview with the audio clip of Colbert showing himself to be a LotR fanatic?
I catch the show as often as I can, but my enjoyment of it can vary greatly depending on the segment. All too often they seem to put the humor second, and go for a much more editorial tone.
This is most evident when they show a clip of some recent White House press conference, and then show an older clip of someone (possibly the same person) saying something different. It actually tends to be rather good editorializing, and something that other news editorialists ought to do more often, but it's not terribly *funny*. This was a particular problem during the height of the Valerie Plame hubbub, where the Daily Show devoted a whole darn episode to the topic. The episode made a lot of good points, but outside of a silly Samantha Bee segment, I don't think it made me laugh once.
I was watching tonight's Daily Show. The guest was Bill O'Reilly. I was just wondering who else watched it, and if you thought O'Reilly seemed a bit drunk. I mean, he was practically picking fights with the audience.
