The Half Hour News Hour

I watched the Half Hour News Hour on Fox News tonight — it’s billed as The Daily Show for conservatives. I was pleasantly surprised. Conservatives don’t have a good track record doing comedy and satire, but this show was well done and funny. It was great to turn on the TV and see Barack Obama, Al Gore, environmental and Hollywood activists and the ACLU lampooned.

Check it out next Sunday night.

    You have got to be kidding me. This is no where near the Daily Show. All they did was spew hate and misrepresentations for 22 minutes of air-time. The show attacked environmentalists, hybrid and electric car owners, and climate change. The presentation was more like Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live, except the delivery, timing, and quasi-acting could have been done better by a 10 year old. This was one of the worst things that I have ever seen. Why exactly does a NEWS NETWORK Channel need to have a Non-NEWS comedy show anyway, unless it is threatened by a comedy show on a COMEDY NETWORK?

    “All they did was spew hate and misrepresentations for 22 minutes…..”

    Hmmm, that sounds a lot like the Daily Show.

    I enjoyed the show. Yes, there is room for improvement, but you are never going to make everyone happy with a show like this on the first try. If you are into politically incorrect humor, you should check out ourcountry.com. They are doing similar stuff as this show.

    Why exactly does a COMEDY NETWORK Channel need a news show?
