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.

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

I agree Miller has some funny stuff.

He's also a dick


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

that's f*#king hysterical!

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.

Didja see the article on him in the latest Newsweek? Only skimmed it so far, myself.

Yep, that one.

“I’m not suggesting that their [the troops’] lives were in any way used casually. But they deserved the best strategic planning. They deserved the best in equipment. But mainly, they deserved the best in policy."

“I’m not suggesting that their [the troops’] lives were in any way used casually. But they deserved the best strategic planning. They deserved the best in equipment. But mainly, they deserved the best in policy. Policy should rise to the level of their ability. And so when it doesn’t, or when it’s done in a way that you think is corrupt, it really makes you mad.”


Edit: hah! I didn't see your post when I posted the above quote. But I'm going to leave mine anyway....
