Saw him once. Smarmy, conceited and above all, not really funny.


Even Extreme Couponing out draws him.

Not a surprise.

Those ratings are meaningless. Most watch his show the next day on the web.


Wow... it took three days for the first brainwashed hater to post.... Fatty next?

I have the same opinion of a couple of Fox hosts. They only survive on their guests.

But then they aren't trying to be funny as well.

Something is afoot. All of the late night comics are losing market share it seems.

The collective mood is changing.

I like watching Stewart. Intelligent guy. He actually thinks about an issue before jumping to one side, unlike demagogues such as Rush Limbaugh or Rachel Madcow.

Indeed. I watch his show the following day when it's on at 7 p.m.
Edit:

Stewart actually touched on that issue once. His first approach is as a comedian, not as a journalist, though he manages to provide thought provoking stuff. Fox News, on the other hand, intends to provide info from a journalist's perspective but usually ends up providing comic material for folks like Stewart.

Stewart asks the questions the news talking heads are afraid to ask.

i dig jon stewart,

Year of the Cat is the seventh studio album by Al Stewart, released in 1976 and engineered by Alan Parsons; it is considered his masterpiece,[2] its sales helped by the hit single "Year of the Cat," "one of those 'mysterious woman' songs,"[3] co-written by Peter Wood. The other single from the album was "On the Border." Stewart wrote "Lord Grenville" about the Elizabethan sailor and explorer Sir Richard Grenville (1542–1591).[4]

The most amazing fact about this album is that Stewart had all of the music and orchestration written and completely recorded before he even had a title of any of the songs. He mentioned, in a Canadian radio interview, that he has done this for 6 of his albums, and he often writes 4 different sets of lyrics for each song.[5] The hit single Year of the Cat was originally going to be about a British comic who had committed suicide, but this was vetoed by his record company.

For the most part pretty on the money and true, however I would vote the funniest right winger:




From wiki:

Although in his early years of fame he was perceived to be quite liberal and anti-Republican, in recent years, Miller has become known for his right leaning political opinions. He is a regular political commentator on Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor in a segment called "Miller Time", and previously appeared on the network's Hannity & Colmes in a segment called "Real Free Speech".

Dennis Miller has some funny stuff

I worked some gigs in the Deep South ... Alabama ...You talk about Darwin's waiting room. There are guys in Alabama who are their own father.

A recent police study found that you’re much more likely to get shot by a fat cop if you run.

The average American’s day planner has fewer holes in it than Ray Charles’s dart board.
Born again Christians... I'm a little indignant when they tell me I'm going to hell if I haven't been born again. Pardon me for getting it right the first time.

Dennis Miller had a fairly intelligent act: 1995

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEu1uOVUBnE


But then he realized the good comedians had the left covered, so he turned to the right to fill the void of humor. Unfortunately he is doing a mediocre job at best and most of his acts are awkward attempts to fit his intended audience.



I enjoy Stewart's clever slams of Obama as much as any other politician... but you have to admit, the comic opportunity offered by the hypocrisy displayed by many Repugnikunts just can't be surpassed. Bush made it way too easy.

Feeling bad for Jon Stewart today.

With Palin officially saying she won't be running he just lost a whole ton of comical material. He needs Trump to try and jump back in. The clowns currently bidding for the nomination are a joke but certainly don't bring to the table what Palin and Trump do.
