Um...I don't think this is going to exactly keep Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert awake at night. The show is getting a trial run starting Sunday on Fox News at 10est/9cst. But considering the clip above, the fact that I have seen the Limbaugh/Coulter clip which may even be worse, and the fact that the Fox network took a pass on this show (given the quality of comedy Fox doesn't take a pass on), I think I am going to have to skip this. The only possible appeal I can see here is of the train wreck variety.
The Bored are already here. Idle hands are the devil's workshop. And no... we won't kill dolphins. But koalas are fair game.
I was ready to be the contrarian as I laughed at the first joke. Then after the painful rest of the clip, I had to admit that this was just dumb. When you put up a picture of a magazine with jokes that can easily be read, and then take the time to "explain" every joke by re-reading it to the audience, it loses what humor it might have had.
Originally posted by JoshMannI could give a crap about its ideology/slant, the actual crime here is that this show isn't funny.
I second this. The rest of the show wasn't much better. Don't quit your dayjob, Joel Sunrow.
One of the worst things about this is that a conservative answer to the Daily Show is completely unnecessary. Everyone loves Jon Stewart! Hell, he had JOHN ASHCROFT on his show not too long ago and they were cracking jokes together!
The premise could have been forgiven if the content was funny, but this made MadTV look like The Office in comparison.

I know exactly what you mean! I feel the same way. The first hour has that thrill of discovery and unpredictability. By the time 30 Rock rolls around at 9:30, I'm almost all laughed out and my interest has waned.
