The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
The Daily Show finally aired the controversial segment that left one participant in tears and calling the police.
In the segment, correspondent Jason Jones interviewed Native American activists and Washington Redskins fans about the criticism over the team's name in separate rooms. But after one Redskins fan suggested "we need to be sitting down to the people that actually are offended," Jones facilitated just that, bringing in the group of activists.

10. Worst Host: Utopia is the insane lovechild of every terrible reality show trope imaginable and it's made all the more aggravating with its host/narrator Dan Piraro parked outside the barn. Not only does Piraro not add anything to the proceedings, but his weird, mustachioed, old-timey hipster look makes it seem like he got lost on the...

Question: You are probably going to get a lot of angry email about how Orange Is the New Black and True Detective didn't win any of the major Emmys. But I think they may have suffered from submitting in the wrong category, and some of the voters probably didn't want to get more viewers angry after letting both OITNB and True Detective submit in the wrong categories. So glad for Julianna Margulies' win for The Good Wife and Jim Parsons' win for The Big Bang Theory. But the biggest shock for me is Sherlock's three wins, couldn't be any happier. Which win/snub shocked you, and do you think OITNB and True Detective could have won more awards if they had submitted in the proper categories? — Aadil

Robert De Niro, Don Rickles
Insults never sounded sweeter than when Don Rickles was hurling hilarious barbs at his targets, whether innocent ringside onlookers or the rich and famous on a celebrity roast dais. At 88, though stooped and using a cane, he still gives as good as he gets, a fact brought home with delightful wit and genuine lump-in-the-throat sentiment in Spike TV's One Night Only: An All-Star Tribute to Don Rickles (Wednesday, 9/8c).
Comedy Central has tapped The Daily Show's Larry Wilmore to replace Stephen Colbert, the network announced Friday.
John Oliver would like you to know that nobody is more surprised than he is that he has landed his own show on HBO. While he may not be a household name just yet, when Last Week Tonight With John Oliver — a satirical weekly news program — premieres on April 27, it will join the cable channel's distinguished Sunday-night ranks, which have included The Sopranos, Sex and the City, Game of Thrones, Girls and Veep.
"It's an odd piece of premium real estate — I feel like I'm polluting the landscape a bit," says the 36-year-old import, best known for his seven years as "senior British correspondent" on The Daily Show and the two months he spent filling Jon Stewart's chair when the anchor was away last summer. "It's like seeing a gigantic empty lot on Park Avenue and someone just built a tent on it. It's like, 'How did you get there?'"
Three weeks before his first broadcast, we sat down with the compulsively self-deprecating, lightning-witted comedian to find out the answer...
