As soon as I popped the preview copy of Janis Martin: The Blanco Sessions into my computer, I knew Rosie Flores had produced a masterpiece.
Jimmy Kimmel began the week recovering from his Emmy hosting gig, in which he landed some killer jokes about Mitt Romney, but still lost to Jon Stewart. Meanwhile, the presidential race actually took a back seat to the NFL replacement refs controversy for a good portion of the week, with The Daily Show bringing in more talented correspondents to replace their "striking" staff.
"As a citizen, I feel so strongly about the essential goodness and capability of President Obama that I'm really willing to make pretty much any kind of effort and sacrifice they ask of me in trying to keep him in office. That's what it comes down to."
at we now feel that your increased, occasional prodding may in fact indicate a gutly-ness that it would probably be better for you to abandon. You couldn't handle Detroit
Mr. Colbert, you know as well as I do that trashing Detroit is nothing new. And now it seems that you're hooked on the sweet, sweet nectar of a cheap, dirty laugh. I warn you, though: This will be your undoing.

Anne Hathaway deserves two trophies! Let's throw this one all the Oscars, some BAFTAs and maybe even a Pulitzer!"
Sophia Vergara hollers something encouraging at Julie Bowen from her seat. I love how she steals the show even when she's seated in the audience without a microphone.
I hope Kimmel hosts the Oscars at some point, because he understands a fundamental point about the gig: You have to entertain everyone -- not just the people in the room, and not just the people at home.

The last thing I want to do is help elect Republicans. But every time I gas up my Prius, that's what I'm doing. And despite persistent efforts, I'm about to help subsidize the Romney/Ryan campaign.
It won't surprise you that I blame the media for this reality. What will probably shock you is that I fault the conservative media more than any other entity.
Most people are sick and tired ofThe Daily Show romping through the Emmys. The Daily Show has won Best Variety Series for the past nine years in a row and many predict that it will prevail again on Sept. 23. Should The Daily Show step aside and let another deserving program win?
