Huzzah for Daily Show, Colbert Report

It was good to see both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report get some Emmy love.

I can’t argue with The Daily Show winning for “Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series,” while the Colbert staff won in the writing category. That makes sense to me. While the writing on The Daily Show is strong, I think it’s Stewart’s performance that elevates the show. His line readings, facial expressions and silly voices are Emmy worthy on their own. Can you imagine the same material in the hands of someone like … oh, I don’t know … Craig Kilborn?
