    Default The Daily Show -really gone downhill!

    Watched the Daily Show for the first time in ages last night.

    It now seems that insight and wit have been replaced by Jon Stewart just shouting,occassionaly at images of Karl Rove but for the most part it just doesn't seen funny.

    Any takers?

    Haven't seen it in ages myself. My allegiance quickly moved when Colbert got his own programme.

    Political humour is bound to suffer when minefields like Bush are removed from the landscape. Stewart is however displaying a sincere belief in his own hype.

    Disagree. The recent skit on Obamacare was excellent and probably more informative for your average american than the "real" news.

    Colbert is legend, watch him online only though. Is he on any channel on tv?

    it's not funny at all and some of the segments on the show lately about white Americans declining demographically have been disturbingly racist. Mostly it's the same crap day in day out, not very creative, laughing at fox news gets old and the host laughs to much at his own jokes.

    I agree, but when it came out first it was relatively funny...or and I remembering it differently to what it was?

    I think Stewart does try but Obama just isn't that funny.

    Most of their stuff these days seem to having pot shots at Fox News. Cheney when pops out of his cave is still funny but not worthy of daily material.

    I watch it regularly. It has had some good moments since Obama got in, but the material is harder to come by than during the Bush era.

    The last week or so has been unusually poor, especially considering the idiotic health care protests.

    hit and miss now. Was once all hit
    We need to radically change every system that has enabled the wholesale destruction of the Irish landscape, rural and urban. There is no time for incremental step by step measures. The systems have failed utterly and the only hope for a real recovery requires the rule book to be torn up completely.
