i found out long ago that if i wanted to stay friendly on the mane is to stay away from the WRP forum, gameday threads and dont bother logging in on this forum after a loss.

one of the things i found out about this forum is what people post doesn't reflect the type of person they really are. on the WRP, i hated tailgatenut, guy was about as close minded as you can get. i thought he was the biggest dbags. then i heard that he was absolutely a blast to hang out with. he is a very generous and gracious host at his tailgate parties. So, i try not to take anything personal on this forum and try to be friendly to everyone.

It's amazing how Colbert delivers 22 minutes of satirical-deadpan perfection every night, in character. About that same time I started spending lots and lots of time here - (not crazy-posting like ludo or anything, just a tasteful average of three hours and 12.74 ppd). So right away I started with the Colbert avatars, and the alter-ego behavior ... and it kind of took on a life of its own. I feel compelled to try something with damn near every post, and the satirical bent does anger some people.

Colbert angered lots of folks at first, too (especially conservative columnists who mistakenly quoted "him" to support their positions). Colbert pokes at everybody, pokes even harder if they can't take a joke. But everybody realized fairly quickly it was satire. Me, I poke at people, too, and at ideas and opinions. Problem is, I'm not funny like Colbert ... his humor hits the mark maybe 88% of the time, I hit maybe 8-point-8 percent of the time. Without the laughs, the style seems more pompous and insulting.

And that's it. I bet you'd find people who like me also understand Christopher Guest movies and the other comedy I listed above, and the people who dislike me don't care for them. The terminally serious.

Tonight he interviewed Paul Rudd not in his "Colbert character" and gave a sneak peek of what his new show was going to look like.

Colbert was talking about how Paul was nice to his kids and stuff. It was good but not terribly funny. Although they did go off on some subjects that were pretty funny and a little uncomfortable...lol


Here is the full episode.

CBS is taking such a massive gamble ... might be unprecedented for such a highly visible position. Reality is every host's personality/likeability - sometimes called his "Q Score" - is of paramount importance. Networks spend small fortunes on Q research, because the audience must like and relate to a host, or his show will flop faster than you can say Stephen Stephen Chevy Chase.

Here though, there is zero data. We don't know this guy at all ... we only know Colb-Air and maybe the uptight teacher on Strangers With Candy. I wasn't reassured by the Paul Rudd interview, the guest seemed a bit uneasy ... had to awkwardly retract a comment that made him sound weird. Colbert had a kind of wide-eyed grin I'd never seen before ... kinda gushed about what a nice guy Rudd is, then had a clever question, "Are you really a nice guy, or just a bad guy who's a good actor?"

Made me think of this clip, my question is: "Is Paul Rudd really an obnoxious jerk, or just a nice guy who's a really good actor?"

I love Steven Colbert. Unfortunately, you're just far too annoying for even that to help.

Tombstone, he's a comedian. His show is a satiric send up of conservative blowhards like Rush Limbaugh or Bill OReilly so he plays the persona of a conservative blaming everything on Obama while worshipping Ronald Reagan, but it's more a spoof that illustrates the fallacy of most of the media things. It's hilarious if one has a sense of humor that grasps what he's doing. The fact that his show and Jon Stewart's air on Comedy Central should maybe be a clue to people not to take it seriously, but score one for Fox News for being idiots and taking it personally and talking about it during supposedly real news broadcasts.

I actually watched Colbert about what, 10 years ago or so? He's been around a long time, he's nothing new. But his schtick is tiring and only one dimensional people think he's funny or new or cutting edge.

Also, there's a reason shows like South Park appeal to such a wider audience than Colbert. South Park is an equal opportunity show in that it makes fun of progressives and conservatives. Colbert, on the other hand, is not an equal opportunity comedian. He's decidedly political. Saturday Night Live has survived for what, 40 years or so because they too are more of an equal opportunity comedy show. For me, Colbert has lost his appeal because he actually takes himself seriously. He's that stupid.

I don't think he's cutting edge, but he's more fun to watch then fart jokes, black dudes dressing up in fat suits, white dudes b****ing about their nagging wives or the other tried and trued used steretypes in most comedy these days. What I do think is funny is that Fox News keeps taking him seriously and in the beginning a few complete dumbass newsources quoted him as support. He's a parody. That's all the Stephen Colbert show is and it's meant to work in tandem with Jon Stewart who is openly mocking politicians mostly the conservatives but he does lobby at Obama too but he doesn't have to be impartial, he's comedian, not a news anchor.

Yes, the John Stewart show used to have Colbert as a roving reporter and that was funny. It was also the time of Bush and so that tandem worked. However, neither Stewart nor Colbert are making the BO administration the brunt of their jokes as they did Bush. Again, they are not equal opportunity comedians. If either one of these guys gave half the crap to progressives (who are much more of a joke anyway) that they do conservatives, I might give them more slack.

Also, the reason Fox News pays attention to Colbert (just guessing here, I may be wrong) is probably because Colbert makes fun of Fox News? Also, I read an article about 4-5 years ago that said kiddys in high school actually watched Colbert and Stewart for their news. So, our truly uneducated kids actually take Stewart and Colbert seriously. Who's the joke on now?

Stewart has mocked Obama. One of the reasons I like the dude. If its screwed up, he says it; regardless of his personal political leanings.

COMEDIANS! THEY ARE COMEDIANS! They are not required to be Bipartisan. They don't have to be objective. You don't ask Louis CK or Chris Rock or any other comedian to tailor their act to equal opportunity make fun of all of them do you? It is their shtick and it makes them money and so long as it does and gets them ratings they will play that. Nobody wants to see Tom Cruise do anything but action movies because that's what he's actually semicompetent act. Jon Stewart and Colbert play to their strengths. And while I think Stewart has gone even further left than he started, he does in fact quite frequently mock Obama, his handling of issues in middleast and Obamacare. And he used to have McCain on very frequently until the guy lost his marbles.

At any rate, as far as Fox News taking a comedian seriously, you really don't see why that is stupid? The fact that a supposed new organization devotes any time, ANY TIME at all to addressing a Comedian directly during their "news" makes them idiots and only feeds his audience and him more material. But I suppose that's the point, it makes them more relevant if they can be in more of the spotlight.

As for the uneducated kids who may or may not be taking them seriously as purported I am sure in a very reputable and extensive survey with verifiable data, even if that is true, the joke isn't on Jon Stewart or Colbert, it's on the country's failure to both educate it's children and on the media for failing to provide useful information not tainted by their bull**** on both sides of the fence. And the 24-7 news cycle has only worsened this because now rumors become facts without much if any verification just so outlets can be FIRST to break a story. But I've wasted enough time on a topic that clearly doesn't belong in this thread to begin with and right now I am a little sad because it's abundantly clear we have a nation of idiots who are ill-educated and lack a sense of humor about themselves or the world around them.

Goes both ways. rush is a talk show host. Yet the left consider him more influential on what happens in Washington/country than the ACTUAL politicians who are there. A talk show host.

No it really doesn't work the same. Both Stewart and Colbert are ON COMEDY CENTRAL. Limbaugh and O'Reilly are actually hired to talk to politics in a news surrounding. Stewart and Colbert are hired to be funny, politics is their primary focus for their humor, but they could've gone general pop culture or be a comedian who focuses on the humor found in family, etc, but they chose to use news and politics as the thing they base their humor, but they are COMEDIANS not talk show hosts. But assuming you want to go that "Talk Show" Host route, exactly who was expecting Oprah, Ellen, Leno, Letterman or Kimmel or Conan to be neutral or bipartisan?

But I don't think Rush has that much influence, I think he's paid talking head who found his best audience in conservatives so he plays that record until it dies. Why doesn't he have to be unbiased if he's supposed to be an actual influence? nobody expects him to be, so why should COMEDIANS?

Obama himself proclaims huge influence rush has. He's just a talk show host for a radio show to me. Rush is no different than Randhi Rhodes, yet no one complains about her. Talk show hosts/comedians are in the same catagory to me. A news anchor for ABC/NBC is different IMO.

Somebody did because she was asked to quit her show about 2 months ago. She is no longer on the air.
