By Gary Levin DENVER -- Forget Rock the Vote. Inside the Pepsi Center this week, the true rock stars are the correspondents of The Daily Show, besieged by politicos and press, posing for pictures and being filmed by fans as they film their fake news reports -- or try to, anyway.

I guessed that it would be the third question before Katie Couric's job security came up. My TV critic pals guessed somewhere between second and sixth. We were all wrong. The first question out of a critic's mouth essentially boiled down to, "So, Katie, are you about to...

By Steve Johnson, Chicago Tribune Jul. 23--When last we checked in with Hulu, the online video-serving site from the parent companies of NBC and Fox, it was still in beta but already impressive. The site felt as if it was dealing in one main theme: Make it enjoyable for people to watch video, mostly a rich library of popular TV shows, online. Some nine months later, now that it has been out in the real world for much of this year, this most prominent experiment in putting...

By Bruce Kluger In discussing the 2008 election last week, Jon Stewart cracked jokes about orphans, Viagra and prehistoric monsters. God, I love politics. As someone who moonlights as a satirist, I'm intrigued by the ever-merging traffic on the election news highway, as the campaign bus bumps along just ahead of the tailgating funny cars. This year especially, the laughter is welcome, from The Daily Show's smart and smirky antics to Stephen Colbert's spoofy "truthiness." And...

With the intense competition between the two contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, pundits have mused over whether Hillary Clinton's appearance on "The Colbert Report" last night will give the former First Lady a so-called "Colbert bump," a surge in popularity which the show's host claims will accrue to any politician that appears on the show. Stephen Colbert first coined the eponymous term on his show after John Hall won in a close election to become a representative...

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - If the 58th annual Emmy Awards proved one thing, it's that the stars are human. They sweat just like the rest of us. Television stars weren't perspiring from pre-award show nerves on the red carpet on Sunday but rather from sweltering California heat that brought out handkerchiefs and hand-held fans. The heat caused hairdos to droop and made inelegant stains on glamorous silk gowns. "It's hotter than a 10 cent cigar," said comedian Stephen Colbert of "The...
