    Whoa! I am really excited about this! I’ve never looked forward to Midterm elections so much in my life! 😀

  • Anna

    Trying to finagle my schedule to let me to go the Daily Show. I’ve always wanted to go, and finally they’re doing it on a date when I don’t have to go to Chicago and/or take an exam!

  • CN Helper

    As much as the running joke is that no one cares about midterms, these elections have more impact on your daily life than the big hyped up presidential race. So, vote first, then laugh about it second.

    • Clem

      So true, Ms. Helper. Tip ‘o the hat! VOTE!

  • Well that’s lovely…

  • I’m with CN Helper about voting. The fate of the Senate and House all comes down to America if they choose to care about it.

    Since this is the last time Stewart and Colbert get to broadcast together, I’m crossing my fingers for at least a Toss. 26 episodes is enough time for them to fix the Via Sattelite, and I don’t want TDS and TCR to waste that opportunity now that the latter is ending. C’Mon, for old times sake!
