    If you watched the special live editions of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report last night, you already know that both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert revealed that Barack Obama won reelection to their studio audiences.

    Seth Meyers and John Oliver want different things from presidential election (Exclusive)

    Regardless of how you feel about Barack Obama or Mitt Romney (or Gary Johnson), this election has provided many laughs and ample material for our favorite comedians (Super PACs, binders full of women, and Perry’s “oops”). At Bob Saget’s Scleroderma fundraiser recently, I caught up with Saturday Night Live’s Seth Meyers and The Daily Show correspondent John Oliver to ask them what the funniest outcome to this election would be

    Stephen Colbert wants to teabag Donald Trump for charity (Video)

    In response to Donald Trump’s absurd proposal to Barack Obama yesterday — that he will give $5 million to charity if our president provides his birth certificate and college records to prove he’s an American citizen — Stephen Colbert has announced his own charitable plan: He will dip into his own Super PAC’s coffers and give $1 million to a charity of Trump’s choice. But here’s the catch: Trump has

    Was Stephen Colbert or John Hodgman more ‘eloquent’ in their response to Mitt Romney? (Videos)

    The leaked footage of Mitt Romney calling 47 percent of Americans (aka Obama supporters) freeloading bums looking for government handouts in every aspect of their lives (we’re paraphrasing, but only slightly) has dominated political headlines the last few days. When asked about his comments and whether he regrets saying these things at the $50,000-a-plate campaign fundraiser, Romney admitted that perhaps he could’ve been more eloquent. So with that in mind,

    Watch the Daily Show’s documentary about Barack Obama, narrated by Larry David

    Lest you think Jon Stewart and The Daily Show has a liberal bias, the show’s writers have plenty negative things to say about Barack Obama. The proof is in last night’s mini-documentary about the President’s complete ineffectiveness as our leader for the last four years. Expertly narrated by Larry David, the film gives us keen insight into how basically nothing has changed since Obama took office but also reminds us

    Jackie Mason thought Clint Eastwood’s RNC speech was ‘absolutely brilliant’

    Whether you tuned in to see it live or peeped it online after the fact, you have no doubt experienced, in some form, Clint Eastwood’s landmark speech to Invisible Obama at the Republican National Convention. By most living people’s standards it was an incredible display of crappiness– what with the 82-year-old stammering and muttering and responding to Invisible Obama telling Clint to go fuck himself during the improv comedy-meets-political stuff

    Watch the Daily Show’s documentary on Mitt Romney, narrated by Leonard Nimoy

    I tried. I really tried to watch Mitt Romney’s speech last night at the Republican National Convention. I was told he was to hit the stage at 10 pm ET. But then some offensively earnest former Olympian started talking. And then batshit crazy Clint Eastwood talked to a chair and made believe Barack Obama was sitting in it telling Clint to go fuck himself (which is totally Obama’s style). And

    Chris Rock tells Jon Stewart he’s tired of everyone taping stand-up comedy at clubs (Video)

    When a hot, white, French woman calls, you pick up the phone. That’s Chris Rock’s policy when it comes to choosing movie projects. At least, that’s what he told Jon Stewart on last night’s Daily Show. The comedian was there to promote his new flick 2 Days in New York (watch the trailer here), which Delpy (the woman in question) wrote and directed. It opens in theaters tomorrow. But the

    Louis C.K. to Jon Stewart: ‘Let’s get back together and kill the Jews’ (Video)

    Last night, Louis C.K. visited The Daily Show with Jon Stewart after the show’s two-week hiatus. As expected the old friends chatted briefly about Louie, but things started to get even better when Stewart asked him to address the media’s comments about C.K. allegedly “supporting” Daniel Tosh’s rape jokes. In the end C.K. joked that we should put it all behind us, “get back together and kill the Jews.” Check

    Viacom drops Daily Show, Colbert Report from online viewing due to DirecTV dispute

    Maybe a lot of viewers weren’t too upset to learn this week that DirecTV had dropped Viacom networks — including Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, and VH1 — because our favorite shows were still available online. But now that has changed. As the battle over increased fees escalates, Viacom’s latest move was to cut Internet access to streaming episodes of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, and several
