  • I never laughed so much with a moment of silence

    Firstly, let me say that I was so amazed with this episode that I watched it twice immediatly after seing it!

    The news about that (i don`t know her name) lady politic was just hilarious accompained with the usual Jon`s inteligent remarks!

    Then... Steve... what can I say? I never laughed so much with a moment of silence in television! It was incredibly! They really understand each other perfectly!

    I thought it was very well-spotted when Jon said the show took off when Steve left ... strange, but true!!

    Usually a Daily Show episode gets from me a 9 - 9.5 ... but this one gets a well deserved 10!moreless

    This was an excellent episode. The opening was great, the Catherine Harris part was great, and with Steve Carell back as a guest, it was really one of the best episodes recently.

    Carell's interview brought back memories of him on the show, even if his new movie doesn't matter that much to me.

    I really like the Catherine Harris piece the best, it was really funny, the whole news interview with her.

    Best part, Jon: "you know, when you were on the show, we never really talked". Steve: "the set even looks different" Steve: "how do you spell your last name again?"moreless
  • Steve Carell is back!

    Jon starts off the show by talking about Steve Carell, and then talked about Iraq. It turns out that they've missed their deadline about the new constitution.

    Jon segwayed into Crawford, TX. Whenever it's August and the world seems to be on the verge of disaster, you can bet President Bush is on vacation in Crawford. Cindy Sheehan was shown talking about President Bush. She lost her son in Iraq, and has been wanting to talk to Bush, but he's refused to meet with her, saying that he feels sorry for her loss, but "I have to get on with my life", says Bush.

    For more analysis on all of this, Jon turns to Senior Western White House Correspondent, Ed Helms. The president is having his vacation ruined by Cindy Sheehan's protest, Ed Helms says. Ed insulted FOX News talking head, Greta Van Sustren for going down to to Aruba. Ed also insisted that Sheehan and Bush have have met, but the meetings haven't satisfied her.

    Jon then went into more things about Sheehan. He went after the typical talking heads from FOX News and elsewhere, who attacked Sheehan for her attempts to meet with President Bush. He then did a little six-degrees of Kevin Bacon game. I thought that was hilarious.

    After a commercial break, it was time for Indecision 2006. Jeanine Pirro is running against Hillary Clinton, could seem to find her notes when she went to attack Mrs. Clinton. She ended up looking like a complete idiot. Next up was Katherine Harris who is going against Ben Nelson, and she seemed to be a little flirtacious with Sean Hannity on his show. Jon made a little joke about Colmes.

    Jon welcomed his guest for the evening, Steve Carell. Steve came out with no emotion on his face. For two minutes, no one said anything. I loved it. They then started talking about leaving the show, and how after he stopped doing daily reports, the show seemed to take off, winning Emmy after Emmy. They then talked about the movie. Heck, they even rubbed their nipples, classic Daily Show stuff. After the interview was over, they shook hands and hugged.

    As they went to commercial, they showed a clip of Steve doing a bit where he said Crisco was just like ice cream. He took a spoonfull of it, put it in his mouth and began chewing it. He eventually looked over to the host, which was likely Jon at the time, and Steve couldn't keep a straight face anymore.

    The interview was great. I loved Steve Carell being back on the show, even if for one night.moreless
