Most Disappointing

The most disappointing part of the evening was the Comedy Central live coverage with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. It's not that I expect Comedy Central to be a model of neutrality, but the Obama love-fest was a little much. Stewart at this point in his career has sacrificed humor for politics, and Colbert's shtick seems to be getting old already.

I wish Red Eye had been on the air, but can understand why a news channel wouldn't want to air such an off-the-wall show on election night. If I had a show on Comedy Central running live on election night, I'd use the show to just fuck with everyone- Give fake reports on the wrong candidates winning the wrong states and just confuse the hell out of people who may have been caught changing the channel. Seriously, it'd be great. And ballsy. Too bad that with all those channels on the air, no one wanted to do anything crazy.
