Although it’s been days since Rick Sanchez made unflattering remarks about Jon Stewart (and his own CNN bosses), we had to wait until Monday night to hear Stewart’s response to the controversy.

Despite being called a “bigot,” host feigned excitement about being mentioned by the (former) CNN anchor. “Rick Sanchez knows my name!” he squealed.

Stewart even gave props to Rick—who claimed Jon “grew up in a suburban, middle-class New Jersey home with everything that you could every imagine”—for really nailing “what is was like growing up in Central Jersey in the early seventies. The fortunate son of a single mother in the education field.”

Steve Carell and Ricky Gervais worries that Ricky Gervais hates him.

The actor, who recently announced he is quitting the American version of Ricky’s sitcom The Office, is paranoid his comic contemporary doesn’t like him because of his modest personality.

When told Ricky hates people who project an “ever-so-humble shtick” during an interview with the Observer Magazine, Steve laughed and said, “Oh dear, he probably hates me.”

The 48-year-old star also doesn’t understand why people are interested in him because he thinks he is “ordinary.” Steve - who has two children, daughter Elizabeth, nine, and six-year-old son Johnny, with wife Nancy Walls Carell - said, “I don’t know how other people perceive the lives of actors but mine is fairly ordinary. I go to work, I come home, I put my kids to bed. If I’m home in time for dinner, I have dinner and then it’s bedtime.”

Despite his apparently mundane existence, Steve wouldn’t change his life in anyway: “It’s not like I’m a wallflower. I think I’m fairly average. I don’t attempt to stand out in any way. I’m not out there. I’m not somebody who’s constantly entertaining, I’m not the life of the party. But on the other hand, I am at the party.”
