The Daily Show With Jon Stewart

One of the top 5 or 6 shows on TV, period, let alone political satirical programs.

It's kind of sad that a show mocking typical media coverage of world events gives the most honest depiction of the news on television. However, that only means it's proving its point.

Stewart is completely perfect for the job too. I think he has an uncanny perspective how far he can push things before crossing the line, on what can mock and what he can't mock. Not to mention he's hilarious. The other anchors on the show...Stephen Cobare(sp?) and Rob whatshisname, are both great too. I get the feeling a lot of people don't appreciate the talent it takes to keep a stone straight face while totally mocking the hell out of whatever the subject is, or that that talent is percisely what adds the pinch, the edginess to the show.

And when Lewis Black, one of the great topical standups of the day, makes an appearance, that's just a bonus.

All hail the Daily Show.

I'd love for U2 to guest on his show sometime. His and Conan O'Brien's!! Support your fellow Irishmen!

I'm Irish, and I think Jon Stewart is an amazing host of that show, and I've followed and loved his work for many years. I thought ten years ago that he should be bigger than he was then. Also he's Jewish. Jews rock!

Conan is a wacky, insane dude. I love his show, but I don't watch it much anymore since I have to work earlier in the morning now.

It'd be awesome for U2 to be guests on Conan soon, or for Bono to go on the Daily Show!

I watched this show even back when Craig Kilborn was the host, when it was something completely different than it is now. Jon Stewart turned what was a decent thing into pure genius.

(And he's pretty hot, too! )

Daily Show is awesome! I watch it every night...haven't been able to since before the break though...can't wait to get back tonite!

It does lean to the left, but so do I. I laugh my ass off when people insist it should be politically neutral or whatever...it's a fucking comedy show!

Anyway, love the show, This Week in God has got to be my favorite segment!

Yeah, there does seem to be a disproportionate amount of Jewish people in comedy! Even though I'm an agnostic/atheist/confused person, My family's Jewish, so I like Jon's Jew-jokes...

Bono should DEFINITELY go on there...they've made fun of him several times anyway!

btw, how do you get the Daily Show in Ireland? Do you order it or whatever? (sorry, confused) I've always told my dad the best thing we could do for foreign relations these days would be to export that show!

Mess O' Potamia!

I like the fact that even though it leans to the left, he has no sacred cows. If you screw up, he's calling your ass out. And I love his sarcasm.

I watch it every night as well. It is the best political satire i've seen on TV recently.

I've seen his show quite a bit, and sorry to say, but I definately think he's overrated. I wouldn't mind if a drunk Bono laid the smack down on him. Now THAT would be funny.

Why am I not surprised you find him overrated?

and I'm not sure why anyone would expect Bono to "lay the smack down on him" drunk or not?!

In fact Jon has given Bono a few jabs(all in good fun) but I think they would both get along well and probably have a lot of the same beliefs politically.
