    Whoa there bud. I like the Daily Show. Id choose Jon Stewart to give me the news, before pretty much anyone else. Not too mention he's brilliant in my opinion.

    My sister keeps telling me to watch this show. I haven't gotten around to it for some reason.

    I gave up on Newsroom early. A ridiculous show, imo. Watch Sports Night instead.

    Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.

    It didn't look all that interesting to me anyway.

    I've been considering getting into this show for a while. I do need something to tide me over until Game of Thrones and Mad Men start back up. And then after those two shows finish their seasons this summer....................................................

    You all still watch the idiot box?

    The only thing of value on TV is Sports and professional wrestling. All that other crap rots your brain, as evidenced by several posters in this forum.

    So do I. It's funny. It creates a lot of secondary humor when people watch it for news instead of entertainment.

    It's Stewart's commentary that is funny, not the tiny bit of news on the show. It's like Fox or CNN but with better writers. The shtick can be found in almost any stand up comedy routine - take a story, present a portions of it in such a way that makes it seem asinine and then make jokes without regard to the entire story.

    Viewing the Daily Show for news is like reading the chapter titles of a novel and believing you could give an accurate summary of it.
