  • I don't watch the show for product placement and band promos!

    Today was not worth watching.

    Stephen covered the same news (mccainn ad) that Jon did.

    The guest was uninteresting. He wasn't even taking on "branding" as a concept. He was just upset when things were improperly branded. Nascar romances, Stallone pudding, jello Reeboks. Plus as usual Stephen had to actually push a real brand.
    If he was really just mocking product placement, he could do it without using actual brands.

    And I know I'm old and not hip with the tunes of today-- but I've never even heard of the hipster looking band that played their "song" (aka repeating the same 4 words over and over).
