Jon Stewart Talks Cramer Throwdown

Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart knew taking on CNBC's talking heads would be good for laughs, but even he was surprised at how big the showdown got.

"It was this small thing. We saw this guy, Rick Santelli, ranting about homeowners and the poor judgment they showed," Stewart told during the Blue School Gala in New York. "So this simple thing, where it was saying your judgment is up for discussion — somehow it ... read more

Right on the Money: Jon Stewart Blasts Jim Cramer

Jim Cramer and Jon Stewart

In the most anticipated late-night showdown since Letterman v. McCain, Jon Stewart took "Brawl Street" rival Jim Cramer to task on The Daily Show following the "the weeklong feud of the century."

Jon Stewart - Jim Cramer Smackdown

Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart is all about pointing out hypocrisy, as his recent takedown of financial network CNBC demonstrates. But who knew it would spark a war of words between Stewart and Mad Money host Jim Cramer.

President elect Barack Obama, Vice-President elect Joe Biden

It was an historic night, and the networks mostly made us proud -- except for a handful of gaffes and some sci-fi-like technology they should maybe save for a brighter tomorrow. Here's our look at the most powerful, ridiculous, and notable moments of Election Night 2008. read more's Top TV Moments of the Week

Hayden Panettiere by Chris Haston/NBC Photo, Lacey Schwimmer and Lance Bass by Kelsey McNeal/ABC, Jon Stewart by Kevin Fitzsimons/Comedy Central

Broken codes, meaningless kisses, and Spencer Pratt being obnoxious — it must be another week in the wonderful world of television. Here’s our list of the top moments:12. Most Desperate Dance: Lance Bass kisses a girl — and he likes it. The former 'N Syncer and his Dancing with the Stars partner Lacey Schwimmer spice up their paso doble with Katy Perry's bi-curious pop confection and a "controversial" man-woman kiss, a less-than-subtle wink at Bass’ much-discussed sexuality. Check it out on our Online Video Guide.11. Biggest Code Violation: Dexter kills a man outside of his father’s code for the first time — and he’s a prosecutor’s brother. 10. Most Awkward Office Interaction: Mad Men's alcoholic Freddy Rumsen’s colleagues are divided between pity, horror, and excessive laughter when he wets his pants just before a big presentation. The awkwardness is almost rivaled later, when Rumsen acknowledges in his goodbye to Don that his mandatory... read more

Cheers: Meet the Press Secretary

Cheers to Jon Stewart for conducting the best interview yet with Scott McClellan. Bush's ex-press secretary has been everywhere promoting his book What Happened ("he even pushed it on Deadliest Catch," quipped Stewart's cohort Stephen Colbert). But the Daily Show wiseguy didn't just rehash McClellan's charges and the White House's countercharges. He asked McClellan to analyze the administration's campaign against him ("how would you destroy you?") and pressed his guest to disprove that "the entire presidency was a facade of public manipulation." Oh, and Stewart was funny, too — getting B-52's frontman Fred Schneider to read passages from the book a la "Love Shack" and using dolls to reenact Bush's now-infamous comment that he and McClellan would end up on rocking chairs in Texas someday ("how close are you sitting, and where's Cheney with the gun?"). Top that, Stephanopoulos!• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion bo... read more

Making Foreign Affairs Hip: The Fareed Zakaria Q&A

Fareed Zakaria by Justin Larose/CNN

Watch any TV news roundtable with Newsweek International editor Fareed Zakaria and you can be sure the discussion will have some nutritious calories. Now Zakaria has got his own roundtable. Starting June 1 at 1 p.m. ET on CNN, he'll host Fareed Zakaria - GPS, a weekly hour devoted to international affairs (the initials stand for global public square). Each Sunday, the show will include a 25-minute interview with an important world player (former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is the first guest). Zakaria recently shared his global wisdom with The Biz.

Jon Stewart Interviews George Dubya (Will Ferrell)

Some of you may have caught Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars fundraising event for autism education over the weekend. But for those who didn't, we had to share one of the best bits of the evening (aside from Sarah Silverman's singing vagina, of course). The Daily Show's Jon Stewart was lucky enough to score an interview with George W. Bush (played by Will Ferrell)—but let's just say our fine president isn't holding back at all now that he's on the last leg of his term. Your take: Are you going to miss all the Dubya jokes come November? Or do you think all our comedic personalities will come up with the same caliber of spoofs for the next guy or gal? read more

Jeers: Hillary's Daily Delay

Hillary Clinton by Jemal Countess/

Jeers to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart's satellite interview with Hillary Clinton. Comedy is all about timing, and almost any attempt at humor was squelched by the awkward pauses and overlaps caused by having Stewart chat from his Manhattan studio with Clinton, who was in front of a roomful of catatonic supporters in Austin, Texas. Did Clinton's handlers (and Stewart's producers) learn nothing from George W. Bush's disastrous satellite interview with David Letterman in 2000? It's telling that Clinton got her biggest laugh when she agreed with Stewart that talking to him on the eve of the Texas and Ohio primaries was "pretty pathetic." She said it — not me.• Read and react to Bruce's opinions on FX's Dirt, American Idol versus Project Runway , and more!• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on or in TV Guide magazine! read more

The TV Weekend: Oscars and SNL

It was Oscar's 80th birthday, but it only felt like Sunday night's show went on for 70 years. (Official count: three hours, 20 minutes.) It’s an annual ritual, beating up on the annual Academy Awards broadcast for being too long, bloated, boring. That can especially be a problem when the show is as free of surprise as this year's was — true, Marion Cotillard's victory over Julie Christie for best actress was unexpected (though well earned), and I loved her gracious and giddy speech (one of the night's few truly memorable and spontaneous moments), but seriously, how many people saw either of their movies?In a year when most of the major film contenders fell something short of cultural phenomena, it's up to the host to make the show relevant and dynamic. Jon Stewart had his work cut out for him, with precious little prep time thanks to the writers’ strike, not to mention the preoccupation of an ongoing, historic presidential campaign that inspired some of his best jokes... read more
