Steve Carell & Stephen Colbert – The Return of Even Stevphen

Steve Carell returned to his “roots” last week when he appeared as a guest on THE COLBERT REPORT hosted by his best friend, Stephen Colbert. As expected, their bit was hilarious…and awkward. Just how awkward was it? So much so that the two had to debate the amount of awkwardness old school style – Even […]

Jon Stewart Says “Don’t Cancel CHUCK”

You never know where you’re going to find a CHUCK fan. During last night’s episode of THE DAILY SHOW, host Jon Stewart made mention of the Save Chuck campaign. Perhaps he was poking a little fun, but I choose to believe that Jon is actually a fan and does indeed want the show saved. At […]

Jon Stewart is No Comedy Shmuck

Jon Stewart will go to his grave insisting that THE DAILY SHOW is just for laughs and not a real, legitimate news program. Personally, I don’t buy it. Under the guise of comedy, Jon Stewart has become one of the most important and influential purveyors of news in today’s 24/7 gotta-have-it-now news landscape. If all […]

Jim Cramer on THE DAILY SHOW with Jon Stewart

Filed under #1 featured, The Daily Show

Jon Stewart might be at the helm of a fake news show but there is no denying he’s one hell of an interviewer. I don’t mean to oversell the importance of Stewart but if our traditional journalists were doing the job that Stewart is, at least in terms of this interview with CNBC’s Jim Cramer […]

I guess watching Ed Helms on THE DAILY SHOW would be no big whoop…if it were 2005.  But having him randomly pop up as a special correspondent last night?  Well that’s just awesome.  Come on Steve Carell, can’t you give ‘Product Pete’ or better yet ‘Even Stephven’ one more go? Thanks to JF via […]

With my new job starting this week I feel like I’ve been a little out of touch with the whole TV world. THE DAILY SHOW was nice enough to put together a week in review just for me. No one else. Ok I will share it with you but only because I’m nice. A special […]

Dwight Schrute Accepts John McCain’s Vice Presidental Nomination

Presumptive Republican Presidential nominee, John McCain, made a bold announcement last week when during an interview on THE DAILY SHOW he announced that Dwight Schrute would be his running mate on the ticket come November. It was an obvious choice and one, frankly, we all saw coming. But what Senator McCain didn’t anticipate was the […]

TV’s Top Writers Switch Shows

Would would happen if the writers of THE OFFICE infiltrated the town of Dillon, Texas? What about if Bart Simpson took over as Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin-Scranton (well we might not notice a difference). Will the pretty people on Gossip Girl’s Upper East Side stay pretty if they were taken over by UGLY BETTY? […]

A big thank you goes out to GMMR reader, Mitch, who sent along this video – one of my favorite DAILY SHOW moments of all time. This is a 1999 clip of former TDS correspondent, Mo Rooca, going head-to-head with a polka loving, Garfield hating Polishman. I’ve been looking around for this clip for a […]
