With Jon Stewart down to his last five weeks on The Daily Show, it’s perhaps inevitable for the show to point out some of the common threads that defined his 17-year run. Earlier this month, the Daily Show turned its incredible knack for assembling video evidence back around on itself with a supercut of every time Stewart didn’t read the book or watch the movie. And last night, they showcased the many times he did the show sick or injured (or just joked about it).
Whether you regard the examples above as creepy lechery or benign flirting, this way of communicating is a part of David Letterman’s legacy.
Robert "I Did Not Kill My Best Friend; I Did Dismember Him" Durst has admitted to lying several times over the course of HBO's magnificent docuseries The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. (If you haven't been watching, what are you doing with your life? Go binge right now to catch up in time for Sunday's series finale.) He also maintains that he is innocent in the deaths of his wife Kathie Durst, his best friend Susan Berman, and his other best friend, Morris Black. Do not trust this man. If he offers you candy on the street, run the other away. If you find him hiding under your bed, burn down your house.
