However, on the other hand, it was great to see Jon full of energy and not seeming so jaded or weary. The show was a little sloppy. Nonplussed usage was not a highlight, although Anderson Cooper giggling after an explosion was actually really cute, I thought. Still, Jon seemed actually happy to be there and the mistakes didn't seem to be out of laziness, he just seemed sort of ...caffeinated. A little hyper, but in a good way.

This is what I thought too. There was so much heavy stuff to go after but then again maybe it's too heavy you know and it can't really be "made fun" of as it were.
Yeah, it wasn't that good. When you rely on a shirtless Ryan Gosling and Notre Dame going to the championship game for your humor, then you're still sleepy from the turkey you've eaten.
Me too!!! He's got that extreme stare that most women seem to be all over but it just creeps me out.
No. I think he's a good actor but I have no desire to hit that. I'd take Jon over Gosling in a heartbeat. :-)
But it's still nice to see that face after a break, and I'm not talking about Ryan Gosling.
I know right! He looked good!

And Hostess executives, there's a special place awaiting you in hell for denying me my occasional Hostess Apple Pie, you bastards.

Chris Christie should be good.

I have nothing bad to say about Buffet but I was disappointed he got two segments.

As for next week, I'm looking forwared to another appearance by Denis Leary. He and Jon are a riot together. Better than Ricky Gervais and Will Farrell, IMO. And the interview with Chris Christie should be interesting, given all that unfolded a month ago.

"I'm probably not the most-educated person on Comedy Central--"
"No, because that would be Colbert."

The Britsh parliament bit was pretty funny too.
I may missed some things because I have to say that I was watching while simultaneously checking to see if I won the Powerball...clearly I was not the winner.

I get so angry whenever I hear a Repub criticizing Susan Rice. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought what she was saying to the media back then was directly from the redacted CIA report.
This is all theater. The White House sends Rice to the Hill because they want to "check the temperature" for a possible appointment. She talks to them, some want attention, they go on and on with the slander. After a while the White House will know if they will have the votes to confirm her or if they have to nominate someone else.
I think Ambassador Rice must be very annoyed by this. She seems to be a very no-nonsense person and this whole thing is anything but.

So, it's pretty fair to say that John McCain will never go back on TDS. Geeze. The segments were all on point. Rice vs Rice? Well done. Oh and I've never heard of Fudge before, but she was pretty awesome. Nice use of the correspondents as well.

Parliament as the whitest black church was hilarious. I also enjoyed Jason Jones trying to get the Russian lady to express joy.

While I enjoyed their segment with the various correspondent's as Jon's "choir", especially Jessica Williams bringing out the fan and Wyatt jumping around "when he felt the Spirit", I disagree with Jon's saying its indiscriminate bile coming from the GOP over Rice's appointment. As the TDS intern who covers MSNBC must know, and probably has told Jon, the GOP's blocking Rice's appointment is very much a calculated, political move. They want President Obama to make John Kerry the new Secretary of State after Clinton leaves. Thus opening up a senate seat in Massachusetts which the GOP hopes to have filled by Scott Brown who lost his senate seat to Elizabeth Warren in the election earlier this month. That senate seat is important to the GOP because if a republican holds it that would prevent the democrats from having a filibuster proof, "super majority" in the Senate.
The segments were all on point.
I loved that press conference and agree with Jon that all of our politicans should have press conferences that awsome. My favorite part was;
Senator Fudge - "Now, I'm not the most intelligent person around..."
A voice from behind her - "You're an attorney."

Totally Biased is on at 11pm now - head-to-head w/TDS. Thankfully, my DVR records two things at once.
John Oliver is the guest on "Totally Biased" tonight-- it airs on FX at 11:30pm (but repeats, and is also on Hulu).

Personally I love whenever Leary is on, I like seeing him and Jon just being friends and bust each other's balls the way only real friends can do.
Whenever I think of Jon and Denis Leary I think of that special(which I still have on tape) they did on MTV in 1999: The 25 Lamest Videos where they along with Janeane Garafalo and Chris Kattan would watch and comment on bad videos which had the infamous incident where Vanilla Ice smashed the set.
My people! I recorded that and like watched it every weekend. So hilarious! Good times!

OMG, I loved that the most. All she needed was a giant ol' picture hat.
especially Jessica Williams bringing out the fan
