Commentary On..The Daily Show With Jon Stewart
If You want Politics, Go Away.
I am the person who runs Anita's Daily Show Page, a small little web ditty about The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. Other than that, I stopped going to (ahem) Community College and now I work at a hoity toity grocery store called The Fresh Market. Most of the time I end up bagging rich people's groceries.

If anybody sent me an e-mail within the past two days and it got sent back, please send it again. My inbox got full because I wasn't online for a day. (yes, I get so much spam that if I don't check it at least once a day my inbox gets full)

I Tip My Hat To You
From my local newspaper (Daily Press, Hampton Roads, VA)
Nice to see the uptight-gotta-make-sure-we-don't-upset-the-old-pansies- Daily Press bring up Jon--and they even quoted some of his commencement speech, which I'm sure will rile up some people's dander.

Jon Stewart Finally Graduates From William And Mary
(ok, he just made the commencement address today, but I just thought that would be a funny title)
here's a transcript of what he said:
I kinda teared up reading it, no, not because of what he said, but because I can never get into William And Mary even if I was a friggin' genus. (and here I live like an hour away from the school)
Tomorow night's show is a repeat, I don't know if its just for tomorrow night, or all week (since Memorial day is next week -- they always take a break around this time of the year)

Rick James In The Corner Looking At Ed
Every time I see someone at a recording booth:
It always reminds me of this:

Dr. Phil Thinks He Knows Everything
Katie Couric: What would you say to a 10 year old child who maybe caught a glimpse of it or maybe heard his or her whole school discussing it? How would you make sense of the Iraqi prisoner abuse?
Dr. Phil: I would try to tie it to their experiences in their own life.
Jon Stewart: Who, the kids from Lord Of The Flies??? 'Jimmy, you know when you're playing on the monkey bars, you fall ... and a banana goes up your ass?'
Yeah, I'm sure that's already been posted on 3 million blogs, but I had to pitch in too.

Not Mrs. Litowitz.
ABC7Chicago.com: Jon Stewart promotes CD for charity
May 11, 2004 (NEW YORK) — Selma Litowitz laughed, and for that, Jon Stewart is still grateful.
The "Daily Show" host is promoting a two-CD compilation by singer-songwriters to benefit the Parkinsong Foundation. It was set up by the children of Litowitz, Stewart's former English teacher who is afflicted with Parkinson's disease, a degenerative nerve condition.
Stewart was a self-confessed smart aleck while in high school in Lawrence, N.J., and most of his teachers were constantly telling him to pipe down.
Not Mrs. Litowitz.
"She was very patient, she was very understanding," Stewart recalled in an interview with The Associated Press on Monday. "She was the only one who made me feel that there was some kind of useful skill behind what I was doing."
And how did she do that?
"She laughed," he said.

"i also think that JON STEWART SHOULD WALK OUT IN THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOW, it was-" *
Back in 2000, when the TDS newsletter (sent by Dave Blog who worked [and still does] at The Daily Show) was good and it was active, I'd print some of them up and paste them in my paper journals. Today I found a snippet of one from April of 2000 when TDS had just been revamped with a new beginning, and new graphics, and one thing that seemed to get everyone bent out of shape (no, not that):
The Fact That Jon stopped walking to his desk at the beginning of the show.
For like four TDS newsletters in a row, someone brought up the fact that they missed Jon walking to the desk. And I admit, I kinda liked it too when he walked to the desk, but I guess that and the extra long beginning (a voiceover by Jon would tell us what and who was going to be on the show that night) took away too many minutes from the show.
I don't remember if Craig Kilborn walked to the desk or not at the beginning of the show. I know during the end of some shows when the credits were running, he'd walk off stage and shake some audience member's hands, and this one time he shook his hands though this one guy's hair.

Timer Recording All Week.
This week is officially boring as hell week on TDS guest wise.
Two part interviews the whole. damn. week. Kill me NOW.
I miss the days when Jon talked to an F list celebrity about some show that was canceled after six episodes.
I think that the "important guests" killed the TDS fan base. I won't go into details here. I've brought it up in my "waffle blog" a few times though.

TV Guide May 9-15th Issue
There's an article about Steve Carell being in the American Version of The Office in the newest TV Guide (with Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore on the cover)
Maybe this will finally get Steve Carell off TDS.

Not Another Post About 1997
Stephen Colbert started to get good on TDS in 2000. Sure, Stephen had been on TDS since 1997, and was called the new guy until 1998 when Mo Rocca came along, but in looking at this old tape I have of assorted clips from 1997-1998, Colbert didn't find his niche until late 1999, early 2000.
It was like Stephen found his own self after A. Whitney Brown and Brian Unger (the star correspondents of the early years of TDS) left, and after all the hubbub with Jon Stewart taking over the hosting gig died down. If memory serves me correct, we barley saw Stephen in 1999 anyway due to him filming Strangers With Candy. so I guess I can safely say that Stephen found his niche in 2000. The first time I laughed the most at Stephen is something that sadly I don't have a transcript of at the moment, but when he was doing the census with Jon, but I do have two screencaps:
and in the beginning of the skit, Stephen told the audience at home that he enjoys doing his census while drinking a NUTZ brand cola, and he got the soda bottle out from under the desk, and opened it, and it sprayed everywhere.

"Barbara's new baby with ABC"
I was searching for Jon on google news, and I saw this little snippet of an article
-- Maybe "The Daily Show" should read the names of canceled TV shows from the past five seasons. Well, no, that'd take too long. Two seasons.
