I am smart AND rich!!


On top of that, “Daily Show” viewers know more about election issues than people who regularly read newspapers or watch television news, according to the National Annenberg Election Survey.

Ben and I watch The Daily Show pretty much 5 nights a week. I got 5 out of 6 questions right so I scored better than even The Daily Show’s 60% average.

Comedy Central was waiting for news like this. On September 17, Stewart appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s “The O’Reilly Factor” only to be told his viewers are “stoned slackers” and “dopey kids.”

“You know what’s really frightening?” O’Reilly asked Stewart. ” You actually have an influence on this presidential election. That is scary, but it’s true.”

Comedy Central used its viewers’ test scores Tuesday to strike back at Fox News Channel and O’Reilly’s viewers.

It also trotted out stats from Nielsen Media Research to show that Stewart’s viewers are not only smart, but more educated than O’Reilly’s.

“Daily Show” viewers are 78 percent more likely than the average adult to have four or more years of college education, while O’Reilly’s audience is only 24 percent more likely to have that much schooling.

Plus, the network noted, “Daily Show” viewers are 26 percent more likely to have a household income more than $100,000, while O’Reilly’s audience is only 11 percent more likely to make that much money.

So the guy watching Stewart may not only be smart, but may also be rich.

If you don’t watch it, check it out. Great show.

  1. I love teh daily show, and most classes on campus that are dealing with the election offer that show up as a legitimate source of political information. Bill O’Reily, however, usually isn’t because his show usually boils down to name calling.

  2. WOW! Ben actually has plans to do a Bimmer drive Saturday. I think Cassidy and I will head over there and check it out.

    I’ll try and snap some pictures but they keep that area so dark that it’s hard to get a good shot. If you can manage to find a spot away from the morons trying to take pictures through three feet of reflective plexiglass with a FLASH then you can get some.
