Now THIS is cool!!! The Daily Show, one of my favorite shows on TV, has won an award from the Television Critics Association. Was it for best comedy? Nope. Was it for best comedy? Nope. “Arrested Development” got it, and deservedly so.
It was for “Outstanding Achievement in News and Information”. TDS beat out 60 Minutes, Frontline, Meet the Press, and Nightline!!!! I’m flabbergasted and overjoyed.
Clipped from a Seattle Times article I linked to below…
Stewart sent a tape of himself seated at “The Daily Show” anchor desk, expressing bewilderment at the idea of getting an award for news programming on the heels of last year’s TCA award for best comedy.
“We’re fake,” he said. “See this desk? … It folds up at the end of the day, and I take it home in my purse.”
