I Have a Man Crush on Jon Stewart

I think this may have been the best week ever for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  Better even than the "fued" with Conan O'Brien fueled by the writers strike last year.

Watching Jon completely dismantle Jim Cramer last night was pure gold.  I have no idea what compelled Cramer to agree to be on the show after the happenings throughout the week, but I can't begin to express how happy I am that he did!

It will certainly be interesting to see whether this will have the same affect on Jim Cramer's career as Stewart had on Tucker Carlson's. Jim was far less adversarial in person and seemed to quickly accept how utterly outmatched he was in the debate, so that will probably work in his favour, but you never know.  Networks are fickle.

Ultimately he conceded to just about everything Stewart suggested, even going so far as to suggest that he will change the format of both his show and CNBC's promotion of it based on this interview.  Only time can tell whether this will actually happen, but I suspect that if it does then it could restore some credibility to Cramer and perhaps even help him going forward.

If it doesn't though, and he ends up completely discredited and cancelled, then I'll chalk up another win for Jon Stewart looking out for the little guys!

Regardless of the outcome, it sure was nice to watch him taken down a few notches after seeing his lame attempts at rebuttal earlier in the week.  Really though…  what did he think was going to happen??

To see what I'm talking about, Canadians can go here to watch the show in its entirety.  Currently, the latest episode is from Monday, the 9th.  To really appreciate what happened, wait until next week sometime and watch the episodes from Monday March 9th to Thursday the 12th.  Americans can catch them at http://www.thedailyshow.com/.

Enjoy!!
