Like late-night white knights, Jon Stewart and Colbert are returning to save us from rerun/reality TV/web purgatory on Jan. 7—the news has been the exact same for weeks, right? But they won't have an army of writers to make sure every word out of their mouth kills, so we'll see just how much funny naturally spills out of their brains. I have faith, do you? [TechCrunch]
@rbf2000: Honestly, I hope they do. It would be pretty awesome to have the networks serving content of people totally lambasting them, just to make a buck.
I'm pretty sure there will be some sort of howard stearn type rules in effect though. Even so, I'm confident John Stewart can come up with more funny things per half hour on his own than king of the hill can in a season.
