Colbert Report

I'm becoming a big fan of the new Comedy Central show that immediately follows The Daily Show with John Stewart. I'm talking about The Colbert Report, or as it sounds "co bear ree poor."

Stephen Colbert was one of Stewart's fake reporters before getting his own show. And so far he has shown he deserves it. The ree poor is a satire on the various cable news opinion shows such as Bill O'Reilly's No Spin Zone.

If I could offer one "improvement" to The Colbert Report, it would to be to add a news crawl at the bottom of the screen like the cable news stations have. Of course it wouldn't be real news, but humorous lines. Run the crawl occassionally just to give the show more of the satirical feel it already has.

Give the show a try, view it over several days to get the full effect. And the Colbert Report works great in its time slot immediately following The Daily Show as a sort of tandem.
