Earlier this year, author Paula Broadwell went on a book tour to promote her biography of Gen. David H. Petraeus All In, including an appearance on The Daily Show. But now that Slate has outed Broadwell as the woman with whom Petraeus had a career-ending affair, her praise of the former CIA director is more than a little awkward.

Bill O'Reilly, Jon Stewart
Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly went head-to-head in a debate about issues facing the country Saturday night, and to say the affair was more lively than the first debate between President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney would be an understatement.
The Daily Show host set the tone for the evening — a mix of confrontational and comedic — in his opening statement, when he referred to Fox News' O'Reilly as "the Mayor of Bull---- Mountain."
Bill O'Reilly, Jon Stewart
Prime-time debates aren't just for presidential hopefuls anymore.
As previously announced, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart and Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly will go head-to-head this weekend in Washington in a debate that's been labeled The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium.
Both men said they've enlisted the help of debate coaches: Stewart is being helped by Stephen Colbert (and "a chicken"), while O'Reilly has tapped the services of a professor.
If you haven't heard the news yet, Seth MacFarlane is hosting the Oscars.
It's a bold, surprising selection, especially since the Family Guy, American Dad and Cleveland Show creator has little to do with films, has no hosting experience and is literally not a famous face. But after you get through the initial shock, MacFarlane is almost an inspired choice by the Academy.
Don't believe us? Here are six reasons why MacFarlane is a good choice to emcee Hollywood's biggest night.
No matter how hard they try to liven it up, and no matter how many winners they rudely play off the stage (Julianne Moore? The nerve!), the Emmy Awards remains a stubborn lumbering elephant of a show, the least likely of its type ever to win an Emmy itself, often just lying there — like Tracy Morgan in the Epic Fail of a stunt from which this year's show never really recovered. Time management was so lousy that in the mad rush to end on time, Modern Family didn't get to finish celebrating its third consecutive Best Comedy win before the lights went out.
The world won't know what hit it when Jimmy Kimmel hosts the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday.
"We are gonna pull a prank on the world. On the world," Kimmel tells TVGuide.com. "It's important to be watching because you can be a participant or a victim. It will be interactive. It's at some point during the show, so you have to watch. If watercoolers still exist, it will be watercooler talk afterward. It will be water bottle talk because it'll be the biggest prank ever. "

The prank is just one of the tricks Kimmel, a first-time host, has up his sleeve. And it's all part of his ...
