Jon Stewart Mocks Fox's Coverage of the Nancy Grace Nip Slip

You know you've made it big as a guilty pleasure reality show when political satirist Jon Stewart devotes precious minutes to you on The Daily Show.Dancing With the Stars earned some time in the Daily Show spotlight, thanks to the alleged Nancy Grace nip slip.

Jon Stewart Calls GOP Presidential Contest 'American Idol' in Reverse

Is the GOP presidential hopeful field like a bizarre form of American Idol in reverse?

As the candidates keep piling into the race (constituents are now calling for Christie to join), Stewart wondered what exactly the ideal Republican candidate would look like, as voters seem to take issue with every person currently running for the presidency.

Jon Stewart Doesn't See Downside of Bill O'Reilly Quitting Over Tax Hikes (VIDEO)

When making an argument against potential tax hikes against the richest Americans, Bill O'Reilly chose the wrong way to go about it. At least, it was wrong if you're Jon Stewart . He was delighted on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) about the possibilities O'Reilly presented. He showed a clip of O'Reilly talking on his own show about the potential tax hikes. "If Barack Obama begins taxing me more than 50 percent, which is very possible, I don't know how much longer I'm gonna do this," he said. "I like my job, but there comes a point when taxation becomes oppressive." When it cut back to Stewart, he had a devilish little grin on his face. "So if taxes are raised, Bill O'Reilly might quit his Fox show?" he asked rhetorically.

Jon Stewart Equates CNN's Tea Party Debate Presentation to Reality TV (VIDEO)

"CNN kicked off [the Republican Tea Party debate] in fine reality show style," Jon Stewart said on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), and in many ways it was just as ridiculous as that statement promises. The dramatic intros for the "characters" in the debate , complete with character definitions was completely over the top for a political debate. We get that everything is entertainment now, and that campaigning is so much more about style than substance, but we can still be disappointed by it. Michele Bachmann was labeled "The Firebrand" by the announcer, like we were anticipating her entrance into the ring for a WWE cage match or something.

Jon Stewart and Anne Hathaway Geek Out About Scrabble (VIDEO)

It turned into a bit of a nerd-fest on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) after the audience recognized his use of the 'World of Warcraft' font in a comedy bit. When Anne Hathaway came out, she called them her people. Her nerd choice, apparently, is a love of the game Scrabble, which lead to what may be the longest interview discussion about Scrabble in the history of talk shows (at least with someone who isn't some kind of world Scrabble champion). Jon Stewart and Hathaway talked about strategies playing on the computer, and some wisdom that Stewart got from his seven-year old son. The PC game offers you four chances to use a "Best Word" feature when you're playing the computer.
