Hugh Grant is a "big pain in the ass." The Music and Lyrics actor was blasted by The Daily Show host Jon Stewart for being rude to his staff and Jon says he will never be invited back.

Speaking at a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey recently, Jon said, "He's giving everyone s**t the whole time, and he's a big pain in the ass. And we've had dictators on the show." Jon also revealed Hugh complained about the clip of his flop movie Did You Hear About The Morgans? which was played on the show, asking "What is that clip? It's a terrible clip" to which the host replied, "Well, then make a better f***ing movie."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Break-ups,

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson thinks that breaking up with someone feels like the end of the world.

The actor stepped out into the public spotlight for the first time since the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal, appearing in New York for The Daily Show on Monday. Host Jon Stewart offered the actor some Ben & Jerry's ice cream to help cheer him up, joking they were "just two gals" chatting about a breakup.

Although Robert begged off any talk of his recent problems he agreed that for young people going through a breakup sometimes feels like the end of the world. "It is," he answered and prompted the audience to respond, "Awwwwwww."

After the taping, he graced the red carpet at the Museum of Modern Art for his new movie Cosmopolis. While signing autographs for fans, he told crowds, "Thank you, guys, for being here."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Handhelds, Videos,

John Stewart lives in New York City, one of the areas with notoriously bad AT&T coverage. As seen in the video above, he is very happy about the announcement of the Verizon iPhone. As Stewart puts it "Those us in the iPhone community have sacrificed one thing for the ability to carry around every photo we’ve ever taken, or video we’ve taken, or song listened to, or have a compass. We have sacrificed the ability to make phone calls."

The Daily Show is Number One

Maybe Conan O’Brien shouldn’t get too cozy in his new office at TBS.

The former NBC funnyman will debut his Conan, a new late night series, at 11 pm on Monday … and that means he’s facing the toughest of all late night competition.

According to TVByTheNumbers, The Daily Show is the top-rated late night show among adults age 18 - 49. The numbers are in, and Jon Stewart is officially the king of late night … but during one of the weeks reviewed, The Daily Show, The Tonight Show and Late Show with David Letterman were all showing re-runs.

We have a sneaking suspicion that all Daily Show ratings spikes come just when FOX News hires new staffers.

Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert Restore Sanity

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Specials, Cable, Daily Show, The, Video,


Despite the fact that Comedy Central’s Rally was thrown together in only a few weeks, and the fact that it revolved around two late night cable TV hosts, estimates show that more than a quarter million Americans flooded the National Mall for a dose of sanity … and/or fear.

The three-hour event was peppered with filler: a “special appearance” from the MythBusters hosts; musical performances by Ozzy Osbourne, Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow, among others; even a long-winded benediction from former SNL regular “Father” Guido Sarducci -- but there were a few moments of sincerity mixed in with all the comedy.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, who approached the rally with typically opposite points of view, faced off against each other in brief skits that felt a lot like a live, daytime version of their late-night talk shows, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report -- but somewhere in the middle of it all, a message did manage to shine through. Stewart’s “moment of sincerity,” his wrap-up speech, is viewable in the video above … and it’s definitely worth a watch.

As he stood before the crowd of 250,000 thousand (or, as he announced when he made his entrance, “over 10 million people,” depending on which estimate you use), Jon Stewart reminded the world that “We live not in hard times ... not end times.”

VIDEO: President Obama on The Daily Show

The President of the United States of America appeared on Comedy Central’s Daily Show Wednesday night … but if you thought Barack Obama was going to spend his time trading quips with host Jon Stewart, you were wrong.

Stewart, as usual, set the tone for the interview immediately: serious but fun. He solemnly addressed the President and shook his hand before presenting him with Mug Force One -- a classic Daily Show cup, embellished in celebration of the occasion.

The two got down to hard-hitting issues right away. Stewart opened up the floor to talk about health care, Congress -- Obama’s entire administration.

Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Laughs

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Specials, Cable, Video,


Stars like Tom Hanks, Betty White, David Spade, Maya Rudolph, Cedric the Entertainer, George Clooney, Jason Alexander, Zack Galifianakis, Drew Carey and the Geico gecko (to name just a few) crowded onto a single set to answer phones for Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Benefit for Autism Education -- and they were just the in-between act. The cable network outdid itself on Thursday night, interspersing live phone segments with the pre-recorded, gala event held weeks ago in New York City.

Highlights from the pre-recorded theater event include the tuneful moment that reunited event host Jon Stewart with former Daily Show contributors Stephen Colbert and Steven Carrell. The latter two delivered a rousing song written for 2008 about Captain Sullenberger. The “Chocolate Rain” YouTube sensation made an appearance, and the song was so good even Jon Stewart was compelled to join in mid-chorus.
