Jon Stewart Rips Texas Republicans, Sees No Blue Flip in Sight for Red State (Video)

1 hour ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

On his final day in Austin, Texas, Jon Stewart chained himself to the “Daily Show” desk, claiming that he isn't leaving the city that keeps it “weird.” However, if there is one thing that can get the Comedy Central host to leave the kind southern state with top-notch barbecue for his dreary New York City, it's the politics. While some talking heads see an opportunity for Texas to turn blue — changing over from a Republican state to a Democratic state — Stewart isn't finding any evidence of that anywhere. “Really? Texas is going blue? Listen, Texas has been a conservative »

See 'Rosewater' with Jon Stewart Q&A in Theaters for One Night Only

29 October 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Most people know Jon Stewart as the host of "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central, but last year the comedian took a break from his late night duties to direct a feature film called Rosewater. The film is a passion project for Stewart after he learned Iranian Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari was wrongly imprisoned and tortured in Iran while covering the country's elections due to a misunderstood joke during an interview on "The Daily Show" that said he was a spy. Our own Alex Billington caught the film at Telluride and seemed to respect it for the message, but said it has some issues coming from a first-time filmmaker. Now you can judge for yourself and also see the film with a live Q&A afterwards. More below!

Jon Stewart Slams Democrats for Hiding from Obama

29 October 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jon Stewart opened up his "Daily Show" from Austin this week with a question for Democrats: Why are you treating Obama like he's a weird stash of porn you're not allowed to acknowledge? In a great segment, Stewart talks about the bleak way some Democrats are talking about (or not talking about) President Obama. He has some harsh words for them. And he also has a nice reminder of what an insanely unqualified Senate candidate Scott Brown is.   The Daily Show Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook,Daily Show Video Archive »

News Outlets Take Ebola, Terrorism Panic Viral

29 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Be afraid. Be very afraid.”

Although that memorable slogan comes from David Cronenberg’s “The Fly” remake, television has traditionally walked hand in glove with fear — a relationship that goes beyond the customary Halloween-themed episodes and annual returns of “The Walking Dead” and “American Horror Story.”

Deeper-seated anxiety than usual, however, is dominating media these days on separate but related tracks: In TV news, which has long employed fear as a come-on to viewers but has truly outdone itself lately, with help from screaming Web headlines; and the question of how the TV industry will adapt to evolving technology that, without overstating the case, will eventually obliterate established distribution models.

The twin threats from the Ebola outbreak and terrorist forces in the Middle East have been heightened by the current political cycle, stoked by conservative politicians engaged in midterm election campaigns and like-minded media eager to cast the Obama administration in an unflattering light. »

Even though he was once a cast member, in Chris Rock, “Saturday Night Live” has a very different type of host this week. So, naturally, “SNL” got a very different kind of promo. Rock and cast member Bobby Moynihan took a microphone, a camera, one tiny purple hat and not much more of a plan than that to the streets of New York City, coming back with one-minute and 16 seconds of stand-up-esque marketing material.
