    Bravo to Colbert.

    Stewart’s show has grown stale. It’s nothing but screaming shouting and bleeped out obscenities.

  • TV Viewer

    Thank goodness they did not give Jon Stewart another win for Outstanding Variety Series. Even Jon Stewart said last year that it was time to give the award to another program.

  • Guardian Owl

    Colbert was ok this year, they really should of won for last year as all those segments on the absurdity of Super PACs were funny, educational, and bitingly critical.

  • Jagger Dagger

    I’ll have to watch The Colbert Report tonight just to see if Colbert rips into Stewart for beating him this year.
