Hot Damn! The Daily Show Wins Two Emmys!
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 02:23 AM by REP
"Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," which received plaudits for poking fun at war coverage, won for the first time as best variety show, breaking a five-year winning streak for David Letterman. "The Daily Show" was also honored for its writing. " - Washington Post

Isn't it nice to see that the most consistantly anti-Shrub* TV show and its writers (Stewart is head writer) is the one going home with awards?

4. That Ain't Necessarily So
The Daily Show re-runs are better than anything else...if you feel like watching tv!

Of course I'm biased. I adore the show and Lewis Black is wonderful! Besides, I have a crush on Jon <sigh>...

The other day (week?) Jon made a passing comment to one of the guests about it....hope it happens!

10. There are streaming video clips available
On the Comedy Central web site, though not entire shows, and I don't know how often they 'weed out' older ones.

http://www.comedycentral.com/tv_shows/thedailyshowwithj...

Not sure what format they are -- probably Windows Media or Realplayer.

7. I never thought I'd see the day...
... when a comedy show is closer to the truth than the news.

But it happens all the time on the Daily Show.

Every once in awhile those awards people hit the mark. Thanks for spreading the good news.

8. A Peabody, Emmys.....go Jon, go Jon!
How very impressive and wonderful for our Jersey boy!

(and everyone else who works on the show)

The BEST was when he showed the war with music that FAUX broadcast.
