colbert I told you so

Good news for late night viewers, Stephen Colbert is infiltrating CBS as the late night replacement for retiring David Letterman! The less good news: No more Colbert Report on Comedy Central.

He'll start next year.

Via USA Today:

Colbert, whose current contract expires at year end, signed a five-year deal to host the show, which will begin when Letterman decides to step down, probably sometime next summer.

"Simply being a guest on David Letterman's show has been a highlight of my career," Colbert said in a statement. "I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave's lead. I'm thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth."

That's gold, network TV land, gold!

Fox News Doesn't Understand Reality From Satire

Howard Kurtz

It seems that even fake newscasters like Ted Baxter (Mary Tyler Moore Show) and Muppet Reporter (The Muppets) must have credibility standards -- that according to Fox New's resident bozo, Howard Kurtz.  Unbelievably, Mr. Kurtz doesn't know the meaning of satire nor comedy nor reality for that matter. He can't distinguish what's a send-up from whats real. Perhaps if you look at the content of Fox News, you can understand why. They don't know sh*t from Shinola at the Murdoch news fun factory.

The other night Stephen Colbert, on COMEDY CENTRAL, (note to Kurtz-- the first word of this cable outlet is "COMEDY") made fun of Fox's criticism and attack on Hillary Clinton as being too old to run for president.

HuffPo:

Fox News has already sounded the alarm over Hillary Clinton's age, telling viewers that the possible Democratic presidential nominee is too old to run. Sure, Ronald Reagan may have been the same age as Clinton (and John McCain was older), but as Stephen Colbert points out: "Remember, those were man years."

Man years? What's the matter, Howard? You can't see the humor there? You really think there's something known as man years?

So, it seems that Mr. Kurtz feels that even satirists like Colbert or actor-portrayed characters must have standards of "truthiness" (a Colbert word). I bet Kurtz thought Archie Bunker was a real guy who lived at 704 Hauser Street in Queens, NY.

Sorry to burst your bubble over at Fox, Howard, but Colbert's character is not real. Maybe by Fox News standards he is, but even the slightest educated boob out there can tell the difference. You go to Comedy Central for comedy. You go to Fox News for... come to think of it, why do people go to Fox News? Perhaps its for comedy as well. It certainly isn't for news if Howard Kurtz is any indication.
