Jon Stewart Impersonates Chuck Schumer to Review 'Star Wars' (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart may have just given us a reason to watch MSNBC with his latest impression on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). Now it requires Senator Chuck Schumer of MSNBC to have seen the show, and to like the idea of reviewing movies. But if we can get him on board, we think he could give anyone a run for their money. Certainly, he would be the most entertaining movie critic on television. Because Republicans used a scene from the movie 'The Town' to try and convince Tea Party members to support their stance on the debt ceiling situation, Schumer was describing the film, and Stewart found his presentation to be hilarious. //www.aoltv.com/2011/07/29/jon-stewart-impersonates-chuck-schumer-video/

Jon Stewart Jokes About How Odd Twitter Account Names Sound on the News (VIDEO)

With the advent of Twitter into the social landscape, our news broadcasts have started sounding pretty strange. In the old days, when a news story wanted to talk about reader feedback, they had letters or man-on-the-street interviews, but social media has changed all that. And, as Jon Stewart showed us on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), that's not all that's changed. Now that we're getting instant responses and feedback from Twitter and other like sites, we're hearing Twitter handles instead of real people's names. //www.aoltv.com/2011/07/28/jon-stewart-sounds-odd-hearing-twitter-names-on-news-video/

Steve Carell Comes Back for Some Abuse From 'Papa Bear' Jon Stewart (VIDEO)

Steve Carell's rise to superstardom really kicked off when he was a correspondent on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) from 1999-2005. From there, of course, he moved on to 'The Office,' where he reigned supreme until he left the show this past season. As expected, Carell's talk with Jon Stewart was one of the funniest interviews we've seen on the show in a while. We loved Stewart trying to make Carell feel better after the cancellation of his show. "Well, the show didn't get canceled," Carell told him. "The show continues." //www.aoltv.com/2011/07/21/steve-carell-comes-back-for-some-abuse-from-papa-bear-jon-stew/

Jon Stewart Asks Former Pakistani President Musharraf About Bin Laden (VIDEO)

The last time Jon Stewart had Pervez Musharraf on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), he was the President of Pakistan. Musharraf was in office from June 2001 until he resigned in August 2008, and he's been in self-imposed exile from Pakistan since his resignation. However, he has plans to return and run for president again in 2012. But Stewart was more interested in the fact that Musharraf was president while a certain terrorist was holed up in Pakistan. It was a very candid interview, and Musharraf gave some very direct answers to Stewart, who wasn't holding back in his questions. //www.aoltv.com/2011/07/20/stewart-asks-pakistani-president-musharraf-bin-laden-video/

Jerry Seinfeld Slaps Jon Stewart to Stop Him Telling Marcus Bachmann Jokes (VIDEO)

Just like Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann's husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, reportedly used therapy to encourage gay people to go straight, Jerry Seinfeld came on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) to use therapy to help Jon Stewart not crack jokes at Bachmann's more effeminate traits. And he used the most abrupt and startling therapy methods known to modern medicine ... and barbaric medicine as well. He slapped sense into Stewart when he couldn't control his urges to crack jokes about Bachmann's dance moves or his speaking voice. //www.aoltv.com/2011/07/14/seinfeld-slaps-jon-stewart-stop-marcus-bachmann-jokes-video/

'Daily Show': Murdoch Scandal Gives John Oliver a 'Schadenfreudegasm' (Video)

"Daily Show" correspondent John Oliver put a hilarious spin on the phone-hacking scandal surrounding Rupert Murdoch's News Corp and News of the World on Monday -- and coined a helpful new term in the process. //www.thewrap.com/column-post/daily-show-murdoch-scandal-gives-john-oliver-schadenfreudegasm-video

Jon Stewart Can't Believe Violent Video Game Supreme Court Ruling (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart was absolutely stunned on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) after the Supreme Court ruling struck down a California law that would fine retailers for selling violent video games to minors. But the wrinkle to the ruling adds to the ongoing debate between sex and violence in this country. It was this additional quote that left him perhaps the most confused. "Government might be able to restrict sexual materials, but not violent and other materials." Stewart then proceeded to warn his audience to vacate the room if they're squeamish as he played a clip from 'Mortal Kombat 2011' of a woman literally being torn in half. This is the kind of game protected under this law. //www.aoltv.com/2011/07/01/jon-stewart-violent-video-game-supreme-court-ruling-video/

Jon Stewart Riffs on Mark Halperin's Obama Slur on 'Daily Show' (Video)

Jon Stewart  devoted his first  Daily Show  segment Thurday night to  Mark Halperin’s  gaffe earlier that day on MSNBC’s  Morning Joe,  during which the network’s political analyst and  Time  magazine editor-at-large called President Barack Obama a "d—k" on live TV. "Mark Halpersin, senior political analyst, editor-at-large of Time magazine, just called the president a d—k," Stewart said. "And that wasn’t like a spontaneous, ‘I can’t contain myself!’ This was, ‘Do you guys have a delay because I’m going to call this guy a d—k." After the incident, Halperin immediately issued an apology on-air. Read More... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/thr/television/~3/8m8LNbQsF2o/jon-stewart-riffs-mark-halperins-207401
