Last night's Daily Show was terrible. Now that he has some actual speeches to work with, that game better get upped.

And they just need to fire Jessica Williams. She's all kinds of awful and has the timing of a drunk sloth.

I have "dual citizenship" between Tampa and Los Angeles and if it weren't for the studios in LA, I'd live in Tampa any day. No the downtown area of course.

Seconded.

But salami on cuban sandwiches is a crime against humanity. I can't forgive Tampa for that.

Tampa was talking smack to Spain, and eating cuban sandwiches, long before those people knew where Miami was on a map.

Oh I think she just needs to be a bit louder on the delivery. That will make it funny.

I don't see how anyone could get emotional in defense of Tampa.. Even if I lived in one of its Midwestern retirement havens I would be like "meh."

Maybe if I lived in Bradenton I would be a strong supporter of whatever ordinance it is that requires men in the city to never wear shirts. That seems pretty cool.

None of the Daily Show females have been funny except for Sam Bee.

God knows Munn is cute (and Williams isn't bad either), but they just don't have sufficient snark. You can always tell they're telling a rehearsed joke, instead of letting it flow naturally.

I also wasn't impressed with last night's show. I know they have to mention the storm, but it's just not compelling fodder when you consider all the stuff that happened while they were on break.

They'd better step it up tonight.

Kristen Schaal is pretty good. Almost like she's worked in live comedy before. She's also not a huge contributor (not on all that often).

I like her better as Louise (from Bob's Burgers).

What about potato salad in a greek salad? I know it was technically started in Tarpon Springs, but pretty much all over the bay area, old people will have a fit if you don't put potato salad in their greek salad.

So here's a question for any New Yorkers:

Why are your subway stations so hot and muggy? Of the 3 different subways I've been in, yours is the only one where the stations are 20 degrees hotter than the outside with 100% humidity. Boston got this right. San Fran got this right (or it wasn't hot enough for me to notice. 55 + 20 is 75, which is pretty comfy)

/They were all still filthy hellholes though. All 3 systems.
//Though the quintet with steel drum and trumpet blasting out my eardrums in the Penn Station subway station was a uniquely New York thing though. Some of the buskers were good (or at least quieter). Them... not so much.

She also completely knocks it out of the park as Mabel in Disney's new cartoon Gravity Falls.

As far as The Daily Show, I admit to getting a chuckle out of the palmetto bug joke just because those suckers can get huge, but otherwise it definitely missed a whole lot of bit.

I was really disappointed about DS last night too - especially since I opted to stay up until midnight to see the show, instead of trying to catch a rerun today.

I second the opinion that Jessica Williams is just not good. Maybe she is a great comedy writer? She is very pretty, so I can see why they wanted to have her onscreen if she was just working behind the scenes before. But, she cannot deliver a line to save her life and her sketches are painful to watch.

/I am still trying to decide if I will try to stay up tonight.

The interview with Rubio was worth watching for. Made a complete fool of himself (lower taxes deregulate heeeerpp) and the shiny smily front cracked rather obviously when Jon actually questioned his statements.
 
2012-08-29 06:12:18 PM
Munn might be the worst ever. A nakedly cynical attempt to bring in the nerds and horndogs demos. Jessica isn't much better, but there's room for improvement.
Sam Bee is awesome, and for some reason, I find her hot. Maybe it's those Country Crock commercials.
Beth Littleford was both awesome and hot.

But yeah, last night's DS was sub-par. They usually bring out the big guns for election season. Hope it gets better this week.

My fave was when he basically said that if only the govt would stop coming up with new laws and junk, and freeze everything in place forever, business could finally spread its delicate, jittery, easily-frightened wings and fly like the eagle...to the sea.

Don't know much about the city, my mom lived well north of there... but the airport was pretty nice. Especially after seeing the abandoned Nazi bunker that is the Philly airport like 2 months later.

//the ride in (my first flight) not so much... no one mentioned that the plane was going to routinely fall about 50 feet at a time over the bay.
 
2012-08-29 07:43:46 PM
Why does The Daily Show insist on doing the show from a theater for this type of thing? It seems to always knock them off their game in the beginning. The audience is more annoying. The reporters seem uncomfortable on stage with the green screen, and the writing always is stale.

And holy sh*t is Jessica Williams awful. The affected street slang in her voice sounds about as legitimate as a Kevin Federline rap.
