Is Trevor Noah Even Better than Jon Stewart?

Trevor Noah has made an impressive debut as Jon Stewart’s Daily Show successor, weighing in on the already-long-running 2016 U.S. election cycle and the contenders for president.

Having been a big fan of this program since 1999 (and then in 2000 when they were counting chads in Florida), it came as something of a surprise to hear that little-known Trevor Noah would replace Stewart but, in just one guest appearance (on Colbert?) it became clear why he was chosen.

Before long, you’re probably going to be reading headlines like the one above.

Stereotypes: Golf

For the first time in 10 or 12 years, I’ve been playing a lot of golf over the summer and this offering from Dude Perfect gets a lot of things right when looking at how we play the game.

The Tee Box Talker and The Ball Hunter are two parts of this that I can really relate to (not me, of course – some guys just don’t know when to shut up and others prefer looking for balls rather than playing). Sadly, I suspect these things get worse as you get older.

Clearly, Three Hours Was Too Long

For those wise enough to have skipped last night’s debate amongst those vying for the GOP nomination for president, here are the highlights, courtesy of this item at Marketwatch.

I fell asleep at some point, but not before hearing Donald Trump comment on how such a long debate boosted advertising revenues at CNN (Wow! – 40x normal ad rates).

Are You Smarter than a 7th-Grader?

Next Thursday’s “Top Ten Only” debate amongst GOP presidential candidates is likely to draw the biggest audience ever for a gathering of White House hopefuls this early in the election cycle and the nation has none other than real estate mogul/reality show star/promoter extraordinaire Donald Trump to thank for that.

Jon Stewart and Donald Trump

In his last two months as host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, Jon Stewart has found comedy gold in real estate mogul Donald Trump’s bid for the White House next year.

The clip above is from last Monday, as the crew came back from a two-week break, during which they must have been chomping at the bit, watching the mainstream political news coverage and becoming increasingly anxious about getting new material on the air.

Fun stuff, that is, for everyone except Trump’s campaign staff and The Donald himself.
