Some in the media have called Jon Stewart the next Edward R. Murrow. Some people find this comparison apt. While others say “Seriously? Are you kidding me? You’re really saying that? Really? This is a thing that’s really happening? Really? Oh brother!” On this week’s episode, we discuss whether a comedian can and/or should step into a role like that. Is Jon Stewart perfectly suited to do it? And if he does, are other people going to be all “Seriously? This is a thing now? Come on!”

Plus! Comedy Resolutions! Christmas Loot! And Dan gets even nerdier! Yes, it’s possible. It surprised us all.
