Best TV Network Of 2014: Comedy Central
With viewers increasingly moving towards streaming programming, what does it even mean to be a TV network in the 21st century? With the industry landscape changing in ways that are redefining what “television” is or can be, it might just be more important than ever for networks to establish and effectively deliver the type of shows that they promise they are good at delivering. In 2014, Comedy Central stood above other networks with its combination of buzzworthy moments, solid ratings, and challenging but rewarding programming, as it delivered on its core mission of presenting unique and ...

Stephen Colbert Ends 'The Colbert Report' With Epic Show Finale
After nine years and 1,447 episodes of "The Colbert Report," it all ended last night.

Stephen Colbert grabbed his Captain America shield, climbed into Santa’s sleigh next to Alex Trebek and Abraham Lincoln, and flew off into eternity.

For nearly a decade, Stephen Colbert kept audiences informed and entertained as the ringmaster of "The Colbert Report." The final episode touched on some running gags over the years such as his sponsorship of Olympic speed-skating and starting his own Super PAC (Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow).

The finale followed the show’s usual form. Colbert m...

Bill O'Reilly And Jon Stewart Have EPIC Fued Over 'White Privile
Bill O'Reilly may have come to Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" to promote his book "Killing Patton" but their polite conversation took a turn for the worse and escalated into a verbal shouting match.

Stewart revealed he hadn't read the book the political commentator was there to promote.

Instead, Stewart asked the conservative if there was such a thing as "white privilege" as O'Reilly had already expressed the idea as untrue.

Said O'Reilly to the question posed by Stewart, "Okay, look, if there's white privilege, then there has to be Asian privilege because Asians make more money than whites....

'The Daily Show' Uses Kristen Schaal To Explain GOP's 'Winning The Lady Vote' Campaign

'The Daily Show' Uses Kristen Schaal To Explain GOP's 'Winning T
According to "The Daily Show's" Jon Stewart, in the 2014 midterm elections, women will have the swing vote. Republicans will be working harder than ever to grab the female vote from Democrats. To prove his point, Stewart asked Senior Women's Issues Correspondent Kristen Schaal to voice her opinion.

Said Schaal, "Women don't see candidates as potential leaders, we see them as possible soul mates and Republicans are finally running ads to reflect that."

Stewart stated that women will be the deciding vote of which party is in control of the Senate.

"Usually women are a sure thing for Democ...

6 Great Canceled TV Shows That Came Back From the Grave

6 Great Canceled TV Shows That Came Back From the Grave
Ted Sarandos, chief content officer over at Netflix was quoted last month as saying that another season of Arrested Development on the streaming service was a question of "when" at this point. That's not surprising considering Arrested Development was essentially the first major show to film exclusively for the network after the company opted to bring it back from the dead after its three year network TV run came to an end.

While the Netflix angle is what made AD's rise from the grave so notable, it's not the first show to get re-greenlit after getting canceled. Here are six other great TV...

Matt Stone and Trey Parker South Park power outage
Trey Parker and Matt Stone are accustomed to finishing South Park at the last minute, but they have never missed a deadline until a power outage struck their studios Tuesday and forced them to delay an episode for the first time in 13 years.

As it has been documented several times, including the special "South Park: 6 Days to Air," series creators Parker and Stone generally come up with the idea for a show, animate and voice it, then send it to Comedy Central all within six days.

A power outage Tuesday put an end to their race against the deadline, keeping their computers down for several...

After taking the summer off, Jon Stewart returned to his "Daily Show" duties on Tuesday night. The comedian took a 12-week sabbatical in Jordan to work on the documentary "Rosewater" about Middle Eastern politics. His seat was filled by British comic John Oliver in his absence.

Stewart jokingly told the audience that he missed them: "You don't know what it's like out there in the real world. Nobody applauds every stupid little thing you do."

The late-night host showed up with a large beard and tan, and staff tried to Americanize him with a McDonald's Big Mac defribilator. Stephen Colbert ...
