Man I lost the username beerorkid on youtube over daily show clips I captured. But now you can watch episodes all the way back to 1999 on thedailyshow.com
I frequent a forum where politics are discussed and one guy loves to say the daily show is the main source for liberal news. I doubt anyone looks to the daily show for news. The only thing I have ever learned from TDS is that Cheney has a man sized safe in his office. The studies that show that daily show watchers know more about current events than FOX news watchers is probably where that line of thought comes from.
Colbert is still better though.
