Count Me Among The “Stoned Slackers”

From the AP newsire:

The folks at Comedy Central were annoyed when Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly kept referring to “The Daily Show” audience as “stoned slackers.”

So they did a little research. And guess whose audience is more educated?

Viewers of Jon Stewart’s show are more likely to have completed four years of college than people who watch “The O’Reilly Factor,” according to Nielsen Media Research.

I’m not quite sure why Comedy Central was so concerned about what Bill O’Reilly had to say about the audience of “The Daily Show” since he is such a paragon of truth and objectivity.

I think I’ve mentioned before that one of my favorite things about my new Tivo is that it allows me to watch TV shows when I have time, not necessarily when they are on. And thanks to Tivo I’ve gotten back into watching “The Daily Show”. Bill O’Reilly is actually going to be a guest on the show on October 7. That will certainly be an episode to catch.

If you have a Tivo and you’ve tried to record “The Daily Show” you have probably encountered the problem that you often get 4 recordings of the same show since they don’t provide individual episode information to the Tivo guide. Here are some great suggestions for dealing with the problem. I use number 2 myself and I find that it works very well.
