Drfunkenberry Loves The SHHH Out Of P!nk & Jon Stewart!
P!nk took to "The Daily Show W/Jon Stewart" to perform her new song "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" from her new CD "The Truth About Love" and profess she LOVES the SHHHH out of Jon.
Perhaps when she has a SHHH day, n we had a SHHH day, she puts on "The Daily Show" and her day is suddenly better.
Aside from the bleep of a whiskey....penis....the song is uncensored and aired that way.
We like P!nk any which way she wants to give it to us, clean or unclean. It seems you do as well as the new CD is set to debut at #1 next week on the charts that used to matter, Billboard.
Drfunkenberry Loves The SHHH Out Of P!nk & Jon Stewart!
We are not sure The Daily Show loves the SHHH out of P!nk however. They have her CD listed as "I'm Not Dead" instead of "The Truth About Love". Hmm. So Comedy Central, if you are reading this, you MIGHT wanna fix that. Then we can LOVE the SHHH out of you again!
Regardless, enjoy the badness of "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" and "Who Knew" by P!nk on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart"-DocFB
Esperanza Spalding performed "Black Gold" along with "Crowned & Kissed" on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. The Daily Show is not known for its musical guests performers but we were glad to see Esperanza getting shine from the political show.
We have been digging the groove of "Black Gold" and her new CD "Radio Music Society" for a minute.
Radio Music Society is more than her CD title. It actually is the name of her band...and she is taking members as you can see in the clip above.
We could not agree more with Jon's comment about Esperanza stating "I feel like you should be as twice as large as you are with the talent you have."
So true, don't you think?-DocFB
So we all heard the bad puns the media said covering Whitney Houston's death. "She can no longer have the greatest love of all" or "she can longer say she will always love you" and we rolled our eyes. Lewis Black remembers and takes them to task.
We have missed "Back In Black" on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and it returned last night with a vengeance.
Going after Nancy Grace for assuming someone drowned Whitney when no one knew and other media people jumping to conclusions.
We know the media sensationalize everything and Whitney was no exception. Check out Lewis Black setting them straight on it.-DocFB
Rachel McAdams recovered from her horrendous dress earlier last week by wearing a great purple number to "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and she looked great. She was covered up and it just looked better.
Her new movie "The Time Traveler's Wife" did not take the number 1 spot this weekend but may have legs. You might think I am mean from time to time but I don't try to pick on people. Honestly.
Rachel did good. I just wish she wore this to the premiere. Then again, it did have me talking, didn't it?-Dr.FB
Jon Stewart is the most trusted name in news according to a Time Magazne Poll.
He beat our Brian Williams, Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric by 44 percent.
Message to newscasters: how sad is it when a comedy show reporting the ness is more trustworthy than you. Just saying,
By all accounts, Jim Cramer got his ass handed to him last night on The Daily Show. Jon Stewart came out swinging and never let up, leaving Jim Cramer sagging against the ropes.
"I understand you want to make finance entertaining," Stewart told Cramer at one point, "But this is not a f-cking game." By the end of the show, Stewart had Cramer admitting he "should do a better job" of reporting and advising on financial matters.
We have Round 1 here. The rest of this bruising smackdown can be viewed at Comedy Central's The Daily Show webpage here.
According to this L.A. Times article, CNBC money pundit Jim Cramer and Comedy Central's Jon Stewart are locked in a "full-blown media feud" over CNBC's reporting--or lack thereof, according to Stewart--of the precariousness of the economy over the last two years. In particular, Stewart has been playing clips of Cramer's financial and investment advice show Mad Money, with Cramer decidedly sugar-coating the situation: “Bear Stearns is fine! Bear Stearns is not in trouble.” Less than a week later, the investment house folded.
According to Stewart, “If I’d only followed CNBC’s advice, I’d have a million dollars today -– provided I’d started with a hundred million dollars."
Since then, there has been a volley of quips and remarks fired back and forth between the two, first in a column Cramer wrote on MainStreet.com, then an appearance on the Today show, with Stewart responding on his Daily Show broadcast. Look for Stewart to fire another round in tonight's episode.
And for the record, MY money is on Jon.
Happy New Year TV fans! As if not having the NFL Network is bad enough, Time Warner Cable may be taking away other top shows and networks.
According to the AP:
Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and 16 other channels will go dark on Time Warner Cable Inc. at 12:01 a.m. Thursday if a new carriage fee deal is not agreed upon by then.
The impasse over carriage fee hikes would mean "SpongeBob" and other popular shows like Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" and Stephen Colbert's "The Colbert Report" will be cut off to 13 million subscribers, said spokesman Alex Dudley, a vice president at Time Warner Cable. The nation's second-largest cable operator primarily serves customers in New York state, the Carolinas, Ohio, Southern California and Texas.
Viacom has asked for fee increases of between 22 percent and 36 percent per channel, an amount that could increase customers' cable bills, Dudley said. Viacom spokeswoman Kelly McAndrew said the requested increase was in the very low double-digit percentage range.
Viacom said the increases would cost an extra 23 cents a month per subscriber — which works out to $35.9 million more in total. It said that Americans spend a fifth of their TV time watching Viacom shows but its fees make up less than 2.5 percent of the Time Warner cable bill.
"We make this request because Time Warner Cable has so greatly undervalued our channels for so long," it said.
"Ultimately, however, if Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV and the rest of our programming is discontinued — over less than a penny per day — we believe viewers will see this behavior by their cable company as outrageous," it said.
Tense negotiations are continuing at the highest level, Dudley said.
Viacom accused Time Warner Cable of not negotiating.
"It is our sincere hope that they will come to the table and negotiate a deal," said McAndrew. The network operator also intends to tell viewers about the dispute in TV ads in 11 major markets.
Part of the disagreement is that most of the popular shows are rerun on Web sites where Viacom collects advertising revenue that it does not share with Time Warner, Dudley said.
This is not good news. Both come off as greedy, regardless of one cent or whatever, not during these times should you be trying to do this.-Dr.FB
