    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Jon Stewart: Unless that judge is Antonin Scalia, how is this news?

      • Jon Stewart: The hour long broadcast focused on allegations by Sideshow Bob, better known as Corey Clark, that he had an affair with American Idol judge Paula Abdul, when he was a contestant two years ago. The special was called "Fallen Idol," presumably because the original title "Hey everybody, I boned Paula Abdul!" was considered too on-the-nose.

      • Jon Stewart: In the end, the sole comfort left to the viewers was the knowledge that ABC News' programming couldn't possibly get any worse. (video clip) Stossel! I forgot about Stossel. STOSSEL!!! Wow, I really actually got light-headed. Whew!

      • Jon Stewart: Actually, we at The Daily Show have learned Clark might not be the only up-and-comer Abdul may have seduced. Stay tuned next week for an interview with M.C. Skat Kat, whose affair with a temptress ended when among other things, she took things serious, he took them light. She went to bed early, he partied all night. In the end, the sole... Am I the only one that remembers that? M.C. Skat Kat and they were dancing, he was a cartoon, she was all "Zappity, dabba, dab", and then M.C. Skat Kat was like "I'm bad!", you know, then uh, and then uh, Arsenio was cancelled, and nobody ever heard the end of it.

      • Jon Stewart: Yes, a 155 minute conversation between Corey Clark and Paula Abdul... must have been a real "My Dinner with Andre" there.

      • Jon Stewart: With that accent, Dr. Phil makes that stuff sound even more fun. (In Dr. Phil accent) Let's get some hookers, and some coke..." It's like Gomer Pile in Bangkok.

      • Tonight's Moment of Zen was a clip of Pat O'Brien and Dr. Phil listening to Pat's drunken messages left on an answering machine.
