Now Fox News Channel, a primary source of material for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, is teaming with the exec producer of "24" to try its hand at a news satire show for conservatives to love.
Joel Surnow, co-creator of "24," is shooting two half-hour pilots of a skein he described as " 'The Daily Show' for conservatives," due to air in primetime on Saturdays in January.
Hilarious! I bet Comedy Central is almost concerned. Who's the funniest right-wing comedian out there, aside from the unintentionally funny Bill O'Reilly? Dennis Miller? Perhaps that "Git'R'Done" guy? Lame. Apparently I'm not the only one to notice this sad fact.
The pilot segs will be co-anchored by comedians Kurt Long and Susan Yeagley and feature a family of correspondents. "There will be some elements of 'The Daily Show' and some of 'Weekend Update,' " Surnow said.
