Jon Stewart Is Funny, Even In Print
    Wired: The Daily Show really exemplifies that sort of new model. It's on a cable network, not broadcast. It's among the most popular shows traded online. People download and watch the whole thing, every day. Were you guys aware of that?

    Karlin: Not only am I not aware of that, I don't want to be aware of that.

    Wired: Well, don't go shutting it down.

    Stewart: We're not going to shut it down - we don't even know what it is. I'm having enough trouble just getting porn.

    Inspiring things this week include the announcement via this Wired Magazine interview that The Daily Show is among the most popular shows traded online. Not only is it exciting that angry, smart, funny folks trying to keep the political machine honest are getting heard, but it's also inspiring to learn that people ARE, in fact, interested in TV that doesn't suck! Take that, Reality Television!

    Although I do realize that this new non-television based TV creates the need for a newer, sneakier kind of advertising. We'll have to see what they come up with before truly doing the celebration dance.
