Late-night, last night
Good night for late-night TV yesterday: Bill O'Reilly on the Daily Show (he didn't quite retract the "stoned slackers" comment, but he was otherwiseI can't believe I'm saying thisa pretty good sport), and the JibJab guys who did the "This Land Is Your Land" Bush-Kerry animation this summer did a follow-up (I hesitate to call it a sequel) that debuted on the Tonight Show. ("It's Good to Be in D.C.," to the tune of "Dixie"; having made its debut on TV, it's also now available at JibJab.com.)
The 11 p.m. Daily Show is rebroadcast at 1 a.m., 10 a.m., and 7 p.m. the following day, so if you missed last night's, you can still catch it this evening; and since they don't do a show on Friday, the one they rebroadcast during the day Monday is likely to be the O'Reilly one too.
A media-watch update for the other Jon Stewart fan-geeks out there: there's a cover story about him in the new Rolling Stone, and an interview in whichever issue of GQ has Lindsay Lohan on the cover. (I found that one in the dentist's office; probably the September or October issue.) And you've bought "America (The Book)" by now, haven't you? If not, for heaven's sake, go get it: from Comedy Central, from Amazon.com, from Barnes & Noble, or go look in your neighborhood bookstore. (I'd loan you mine, but however generous my conscious mind was feeling, my subconscious would cling to it and refuse to let go, and you'd have to knock me out and then pry my fingers off it one by one while fending off attacks by one parakeet and nine spiny mice. And J. would probably back me up too.)
