Jon Stewart's a happy camper today. Just months after The Daily Show anchor went on CNN's Crossfire and ripped the show and cohost Tucker Carlson to shreds, the cable news net axed Carlson and his political slugfest. "I guess I come down more firmly in the Jon Stewart camp," CNN CEO Jonathan Klein told the Associated Press. "[Carlson]'s career aspirations and our programming needs just don't synch up. He wants to host his own nighttime show and we don't see that in the cards here." Indeed, Carlson has reportedly been in talks with MSNBC to fill Deborah Norville's prime-time slot.
