    I've been addicted to the Daily Show and the Colbert Report lately, watching it nightly!
    Secretly though, I dont think Colbert is a conservative, I think he just likes to make jokes.

    Anyway, was having major debates with roommates over which one is BETTER!

    What do you think?

      SECRETLY, you don't think Colbert is a conservative????

      It's just started here on Australian TV.  It's blindingly obvious to me - Colbert is a satirist. 

      I was just commenting to my husband that it was sad, I bet some Americans think he means what he says, when clearly his views are completely opposite.  Looks like I was right.

        You are right.

        He fooled somebody enough that he was asked to give a speech at the White House Correspondents Dinner, where he proceeded to roast President Bush and his policies to his face. One of the best things I've ever seen. big_smile


        But I still like Stewart better overall.

      I didn't think there was anyone left who actually thought Colbert was a conservative lol

      Just realized this is a 2 year old thread which I answered then smile

    Steven Colbert without a doubt. I watch both, but love The Colbert Report.

    I'd have to go with John Stewart although I think Colbert is really funny also.

    Jon Stewart. He has me in stitches. Personally Colbert's delivery grates on me.

    It's hard but I lean towards Jon Stewart too. I like Colbert, but I prefer Stewart.

    Jon rules!!! Colbert started out on Jon's show. Of course, Stephen is a Faux conservative. Both of them make my day!

    Don't think I can pick, as they're both fantastic in different ways. Colbert is just a superb actor - his elaborate portrait of an O'Reilly-esque conservative blowhard never gets old. I do occasionally swing toward Stewart's bemused sincerity, though. Love when he cracks up and you can tell it's genuine. So yeah, I'm gonna have to straddle the fence.
