Default Look out John Stewart!

Satire hands a right
Fox, Surnow prep conservative skein
By MICHAEL LEARMONTH

Comedy Central has made a good living out of skewering the political right.

Now Fox News Channel, a primary source of material for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, is teaming with the exec producer of “24″ to try its hand at a news satire show for conservatives to love.

Joel Surnow, co-creator of “24,” is shooting two half-hour pilots of a skein he described as “‘The Daily Show’ for conservatives,” due to air in primetime on Saturdays in January.

If successful, the show could take its place on the regular schedule, adding satire to FNC’s formula of news and opinion.

“The way I look at it, almost every comedy show or satire show I see uses the same talking points against George W. Bush and Dick Cheney,” Surnow said. “The other side hasn’t been skewered in a fair and balanced way.”

The working title of the show has been “This Just In,” but that will change because AOL just launched a broadband comedy channel by that name.

The pilot segs will be co-anchored by comedians Kurt Long and Susan Yeagley and feature a family of correspondents. “There will be some elements of ‘The Daily Show’ and some of ‘Weekend Update,’ ” Surnow said.

well the left has been left out of the mix with a few exceptions like staples like ted kennedy big irish head red-faced-drunk jokes, "why the long face" john f. kerry, or your staple hillary is a dyke joke. You are a moderate right? You love the daily show and satirical comedy, this show sounds great for you. The left does plenty of crap that should be on the news, or atleast the daily show but it doesnt play well with that crew. The fact that the producer of such a successful show as 24 would want his name on this tells you it has legs, and their is a shit ton of material that the daily show is purposely not pursueing.

ever hear of dennis miller ? Not to mention hollywood isnt a "moderate" climate like yourself. They dont take well to cause most of them are fags, highschool drop outs, club queers who cant do basic math much less understand economics, or just a pretty face that never learned anything. No surprise some harsh facts and hard to face and understand realities are not popular in tinsel town. You cant "come out" as a republican untill your career is well established and you have "fuck you money" and household name recognition.

Hollywood is just like U of M. The preach diversity, but like u of m republican club had to go to maddonna university to get a republican prof to chair their club cause it is career suicide at U of M. Hollywood is same thing, except they are rich and think we should listen to them cause they make good movies i should vote like they do, or be a bleeding heart and give away all my money whilest they fly gas guzzling private jets, and have 40 acre manisons in a dessert with a green lawn i should care about the environment :miff: . Hollywood is a bunch of dumb queers with the exception of about 50 people.

also you do realize there was a daily show was on in 1996 right ? Who do you think they made fun of then? Good ol Clinton i remeber some good rants by lewis black. Also you realize (I hope but would not be one bit surprised if you didnt know) that colbert and stewart for example DO NOT WRITE ALL THEIR OWN JOKES? Just like letterman, leno, jimmy kimmel, they have a team of writers usually 6-12 guys. also the writers have old stand up buddies and comedians who feed them jokes. John stewart isnt some right wing lampooning genius there doing that all by himself. Also heres some insight for you, struggling young comedians dont care who they slam as long as they get paid, and no doubt the fox team will have ghost writers working for cash and no credits so as to not hurt their career. The dems have plenty of fools running around saying retarded shit every single day. There will be no shortage of material.

didnt offend me i am not dennis miller, not related to him, never met him. He is funny and popular though, and has had a nice career. Just had to point him out to sova (the no funny republican comment ... for being so open minded found it odd he would say that. Probably never hear him say blacks cant speak, asians cant drive, or other popular sterotypes), and find it funny that comedy central says he is 21 john stewart is 41 and you cant diss the source sova since its stewarts own network.

IMHO, Miller sounds like a whiny/arrogant asshole.

Best thing to rememer is that it is comedy and everybody will eventually get picked on. My favorite daily show headline was: "Blewinski".
