Creating a Genre

The first episode of the 1/2 Hour News Hour shown a couple of weeks ago was a ratings success. I heard a lot of people complained about various technical aspects and were perhaps disappointed it wasn't as polished as liberal comedy bomb The Daily Show. My household will make 1/2 Hour appointment viewing tonight.
What I remember is that The Daily Show was rough when Craig Kilborn started it and didn't transition easily to Jon Stewart. The Daily Show is impressive now, but it didn't start that way.
I strongly recommend you tune in tonight at 10pm eastern on Fox News for the next installment of the 1/2 Hour News Hour. If it takes off, it wouldn't be the worst thing to be able to decompress in the evenings with some previously unavailable satire of the left-wing.
