12/30/2005: Yet Another 2005 List...
Time has done a 10 best TeeVee show list.
[Which I note here as being NONE of the things I EVER watch on TeeVee with the exception of their #7: Colbert Report.]
The Colbert Report
By rights, this spinoff of Stephen Colbert's supercilious Daily Show correspondent character should have have one good week in it, two, tops. But sharp writing and Colbert's wholehearted inhabiting of his blowhard alter ego showed that there's as much potential in mocking cable opinion shows as in the news itself. Like The Daily Show, the show is uneven -- between the pair, you've got 14 minutes of solid comedy every night -- but it's worth catching for Colbert's nightly editorial, "The Wørd," in which his bluster is counterpointed by commentary from the on-screen graphics. This is a worthy second half to a media-savvy Daily Double.
[And Note to Len: It IS one of the best shows on TeeVee and worth a look-see. ;-) ]
