2004 really WAS Jon Stewart's year

Resident "dick" on CNN"S Crossfire, aka Tucker Carlson, has left the building. And he's taking the show with him too. CNN president Jonathan Klein sided with The Daily Show's Jon Stewart when he called the show out for being irritating, loud and partisan. Here's what he has to say about Stewart's assessment:

"I think he made a good point about the noise level of these types of shows, which does nothing to illuminate the issues of the day. Viewers need 'useful' information in a dangerous world and a bunch of guys screaming at each other simply doesn't accomplish that."

WORD.

Infuencing CNN programming, Jon? In little more than a decade since You Wrote it, You Watch it, you've come a long way, baby. Seriously, as goofy as it was,YWI,YWI had all of my favorite actors from The State (by the way, sign this petition to get the show on DVD so I can add it to the ever-growing Netflix queue. Aww, remember when MTV used to be fun to watch?

Until the DVD comes out (and it can with YOUR help! Operators are standing by!), I guess you can tide yourself over with $240 dollars worth of pudding. Aww, remember when Michael Ian black was funny? This, on the other hand, is hilarious.

So whatever. Denial isn't just a river in Egypt Ali.
 
i wish i had a tv so i could lament the fact that MTV is "no longer fun to watch" *tear*
 
Ali, you'll be happy to know that Comedy Central has just ordered 10 episodes of former-Staters, Wain, Showalter, and Black's comedy, Stella. I can just hear you saying Stella right now, followed by a, "did I stuttah?"
