Fox's stab at the Daily Show

Humor just doesn't work without self-depricating humor. The Daily Show has it. Johnny Carson had it. Richard Pryor had it. Bob Hope had it. Chris Rock has it.

I see about as much prosperity for this show as Dr. Laura had with her televised show and Rush Limbaugh had with his.

Isn't all of Fox's news content fictionalized? I don't get how this new show is at all groundbreaking for them. I'd basically sworn off Fox Network until I heard about ‘The Winner.’ First, it features a guy named Glen Abbott, who's played by Rob Corddry from "the Daily Show" which really ought to be all I need to say. Second, he's an awkward, late-blooming (read: middleaged) gentleman who is finally growing up-it makes me feel better about myself right now. God, I'm glad I'm a woman-at least my future has cats...lots of cats. In the meantime, I can't wait til March 4.
