We'll have to wait until next week to see if and how the late night shows tackle the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado (except for Craig Ferguson, w...

Our lazy embrace of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert is a testament to our own impoverished comic standards. We have come to accept coy mockery as genuine subversion and snarky mimesis as originality.
Penn Staters for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow and Texans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow will go together where dozens of PACs have gone before. And we're on our way there already, wherever it is.
If you think that Colbert is just a guy doing a shtick as a bloviating pundit on Comedy Central, then it makes sense to question why he would be the subject of study.
Over the last year, the late night hosts have celebrated everything both wonderful and terrible about America (or Amercia if you're Mitt Romney). This 4th of July, let's all take a look back at the most patriotic late night clips of the year.
There is no reason why we can't enjoy ourselves while we make a real impact on the campaign and take back the reins of our democracy. Ironically, all we need to do is to start using the very system that favors corporations to demonstrate its fallibility.
Comedy is powerful. And while the drug war is not a laughing matter, comedians are often able to capture the absurdity and insanity better than policy papers and traditional journalism. Below are five humorous clips that allow us to laugh, so we don't have to cry.
From the beginning of the week with their ruling on Arizona's immigration law to the big health care decision on Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled the...
This week, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart looked into the psychology of the presidential bully. Conan spent time with Romney's sons, David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon taught Justin Bieber valuable lessons, and Jay Leno made out with Andy Samberg.
I was raised Roman Catholic -- a product of Catholic school education through Grades 1-12, taught by the nuns, Sisters of Mercy. I regret that in the past I never understood their real value. I do now.
Some people might still think that marijuana prohibition is a fringe issue -- but if any of these people run for office, they'd better watch their back. The drug policy reform movement is on the verge of being not just respected -- but feared.
We were educating people about campaign finance law (or lack thereof). Each time I spoke to someone who had never heard of a super PAC, or didn't really know how they worked, was a rewarding experience.
"Time is about appreciating having all this ability to sort of capture the eternity of a moment, but then knowing that you're going to have to let it go at some point. Winter will come."
This week kicked off with the Sunday political talk shows obsessing about Anna Wintour's Obama endorsement, then CNN couldn't get enough of England's Diamond Jubilee, but soon the focus shifted to the big recall election in Wisconsin (AKA the "death of unions"). All of the late night shows were back in full force this week (unlike last) to cover these stories and more.
