The Daily Show With Amy Poehler was almost a reality. Except for one thing: Amy Poehler had zero interest in becoming the next Jon Stewart.

In the first half-hour, aptly entitled “2017”, Leslie wants to build a ...

The writers balance the two facets of the show exceptionally and “London Part I & II” are great examples of their skill. Starting out with the greatest wedding ever televised, real or f...
