Wow. I just got done watching the premiere of Rescue Me on the F/X network. It was co-written and produced by Denis Leary, who starred in it as well. It was fantastic. Very touching, very funny, well written. I highly recommend it.
Oh. I've been watching The Daily Show, too, lately. Jon Stewart hosts it on Comedy Central. It is presented very much like a serious news show, but pokes fun at the absurdity of today's headlines. The funniest part is that they play clips and soundbites of what people (politicians, mostly) actually say. They don't alter the sound or put words in people's mouths. They just compile the dumbest quotes from the news of the day!
