"The Daily Show" to Air Reports From Iraq

Here's something that might be of interest to all "The Daily Show" fans



`The Daily Show' to Air Reports From Iraq
By FRAZIER MOORE, AP Television Writer
3 hours ago


NEW YORK - "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," whose phony news coverage has long included phony "remotes" from war-torn Iraq, will be reporting from Iraq for real next week.

Giving its green screen a temporary rest, the Comedy Central series will air "Operation Silent Thunder: `The Daily Show' in Iraq," several onsite dispatches filed by Senior War Correspondent Rob Riggle.

Riggle will provide what the network calls "in-depth coverage and insights from the front lines." Scheduled to be back in New York this weekend, he begins his reports as soon as Monday. ("The Daily Show" airs Monday through Thursday at 11 p.m. EDT.)

While in Iraq, Riggle performed for U.S. troops with fellow comedians Horatio Sanz, Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer as part of an entertainment tour titled "Operation Feel the Heat."

Besides "The Daily Show," Riggle's credits include "Saturday Night Live," "The Office" and "Arrested Development." A major in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, he served in Liberia, Kosovo and Afghanistan.

Meh. The Daily Show hasn't impressed me much at all in the past two seasons. Not sure what happened.

I think I saw him mention it on the show last night. Didn't know if it was real or not. We shall see!

You probably remember that I'm not really into watching this show (and I agree with Lancemc's post)

But actually, these reports are to start on Monday. So, you'll have to let us know next week if it actually happens.
If so, maybe it would be worth watching just to see some of the REAL LIVE footage over there.
Although, I hope they're NOT going to make a joke out of Iraq, as what's 'going on' over there is in 'No Way' funny at all.

It'll be interesting, I just wonder how much they will actually honestly truthfully be allowed to report on from Iraq.

I have the same feelings. They've lost a lot of talent; Colbert, Carrell, Mo Rocca, and a few others.

The people they have now just kind of rub the wrong way most of the time.

And Jon has gotten kind of smug. He still has his funny moments, and I do love that he brings out COMMON SENSE to the world events, but sometimes I think he would like to smell his own farts.

Hey, man. John Oliver is the SHIT.

And I think everyone likes to smell his/her own farts. I know I do.

At first the new guys (John Oliver, Rob Riggle,...) didn't seem too good. But you have to give them time. They have all turned out to be great. I still really enjoy the show, even if Colbert & Carrell have moved on.

Really ?? That's interesting to know !!
Although, I don't really care for this show ... I may have to 'turn it on' to see this if this segment is any good.

on Monday night, Asif Mandvi was stating he was in Iraq too. Turns out he was doing a green/blue screen in front of Riggle who was in Iraq. You could see Riggle's arms moving behind Mandvi

What did they actually show in Iraq ??
Was it more of an attempt to make humor out of it ... or is there some real LIVE footage that shows what's really happening.
