who is yur favorite anchor mine is steven colbert. i liked his report on dodgeball at least i think he did that one.
I love the Black in Black segments and the movie reviews. Did you see the one on Final Fantasy? That guy always cracks me up with his reviews!
oooops...Back in Black segments.
The two Stephens are cool. I like Ad Naseum too, since I am making a new post.
yeah thats was a good one i saw the rerun today at six
i also like mo rocca(bad spelling)
The election coverage back in November and December was also very funny. I will never forget their Superfriends clip, where John Stewart announced Gore was taking his case to the Hall of Justice now. They had a clip of Batman with something that looked like a voting card going, "It looks like another vote for Gore!" I wanted to get that episode taped, but couldn't
that was the only station i watched election night
I'm a die hard TDS fan. The best segment I think they've possibly ever done was there about the Freeze-Dried pets back in May. Totally hilarious. Corbert is an awesome anchorman. The newbie son the show are pretty cool so far, although Degeneres is missed.
The dodgeball report was pretty funny, esp. Colbert hitting that little girl right in the middle of her face. I couldn't believe he would do that, but it was hilarious... and the movie reviews are always great. TDS is probably the closest i get to watching actual news because it makes it funny...

cobert is the best he is not afraid to show the truth on bad things.
remember during the election when they would go and talk to that crazy old guy who was running for president.
--to be the voice of dissention (that's Mxy's job-- )---but I don't care for The Daily Show. Jon Stewart comes off more smarmy than funny much of the time, and in that, appears to be a cut-rate Dennis Miller. Maybe he's a funny man but he seems saddled with bad writers (or does he write his own material?). Much of what comes out of his mouth is more mean-spirited than funny, and this is going to be the third show on ComCent that I've likened to watching bad Saturday Night Live bits (the other two were That's My Bush! and Primetime Glick).
Though I do recall a segment that made me howl about German toys that made flatulent noises and the painstaking research it takes to record the perfect poots for them.
Stephen Colbert was a lot funnier in Strangers With Candy, which gave him a chance to do a character role. He's talented enough to break away from pseudo-broadcast news and do another series, IMO.
he is not the main reason i watch the show but i do think he is sorta funny i watch for the other stories that are not head line i watch for the interviews and investigations.
Anybody here watch the Craig Kilborn show? I hardly get to see it because the CBS affiliate here shows an hour of sit coms after letterman so Craig comes on REALLY late, too late for me to stay up, but his style reminds me of the Daily Show somewhat on his talk show. I know he used to be host of the Daily Show, didn't he?
yeah, kilborn was on TDS first, then he left for CBS and took the five question bit with him. it was usually pretty funny...

Yeah that was the first thing that popped in my head when I saw Craig for so long, then Jon: Where'd the five questions go?? Later on I learned, it's just not his bag, that's all!
Hehehe. Anyway, The Daily Show is awesome. There's nothing else like it really. Although I wouldn't consider it similar to Denis Miller, though, because Dennis Miller is much more strait foward and just plain real. The only slight similarity I see is the spoofy news thing. They are all pointed in that direction in that respect.
And Jon is a hilarious stand up comic, so I was glad he got the job as front man. Stephen Colbert is my favorite next to Steve Carrell. Colbert was my favorite since Jon started for the reason of he was one of the only anchors left from Craigs old show, but the new ones were just so funny I warmed up to them completely.

The Steves are great, I also like Lewis Black's stuff a lot, although I think that he is funnier doing stand-up. All of them are pretty darn good, although some of the newer guys will take some getting used to. Too bad Vance left, that Women's Health thing he did was hilarious. Nancy was pretty darn good too.
