"Daily Show" Mocks CNN American Morning Music

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday night on "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart poked fun at CNN's "American Morning" — specifically, their song choices as they lead into stories. Stewart mocked the show's penchant for choosing topic-appropriate songs to lead into segments — such as The Scorpions' "Rock You Like A Hurricane" to lead into news about Hurricane Dolly, or David Bowie's "Changes" to lead into, well, just about anything — and he also pointed out host John Roberts' ability to use the song titles to ad-lib segue into his report. Of course, as Stewart noted and Rachel Sklar has chronicled, Roberts was a Canadian VJ (known then as J.D. Roberts), so he knows a thing or two about working his way in and out of a song.
