The Daily Show Wins 10th Consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series
After being tackled to the ground by fellow nominees Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon, Jon Stewart took to the Emmy stage last night, backed by his Daily Show cohorts, to accept the show’s tenth consecutive award in the Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series category.
A big, sincere congratulations goes out to the entire Daily Show staff on an amazing job well-done and for being in the truly rare and enviable position of now being able to play Emmy bowling.
Back in the olden days, Presidential running mates were betrothed to each other at birth by their parents. There was usually an exchange of livestock involved too. But in the modern political era, it’s a lot more complicated. Fortunately, The Best F@#%ing News Team Ever is here to break it all down for us in the latest Daily Show Correspondents Explain video.

Hope and Change 2 - Yes We Can, But
The Best F#@king News Team Ever asks Democratic National Convention delegates for 2012 Obama campaign slogan suggestions that won’t be turned into an insufferable pop song.
Aasif Mandvi meets me on the exceedingly pleasant pool deck at Jimmy, a posh cocktail lounge on the 18th floor of the James hotel in lower Manhattan popular with models, actors, and bewildered European tourists. It’s late afternoon and the sun is high in a cloudless sky, taking its sweet time floating across the Hudson before disappearing somewhere in western New Jersey. Johnny Swet, who runs the cocktail program at Jimmy – and also owns, with Larry Poston, the elegant Hotel Griffou – is going over with us the details of the evening’s cocktails, a collection of summer drinks that represent innovative takes on the classics as well as a few new ideas.
When I heard the latest Daily Show Correspondents Explain video was about Banks, I hoped it would be a detailed genealogical exploration of the family from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
And while I was initially disappointed to discover it’s actually about these places where people store their money, it ended up being super funny, so I encourage you to click the image and watch it.

Through mid-June, Mandvi, 46, is cruising the South Asian restaurants of New York with Madhur Jaffrey, the grande dame of the cuisine, sampling tandoori chicken and sticky sweet jalebis from Midtown to the boroughs in a special on the Cooking Channel.
Actor, comedian, and Daily Show Senior Muslim Correspondent Aasif Mandvi is a slender guy, but he loves to eat. So much so, in fact, that much of his work is food-related. Early in his career, he won an Obie award for his one-man show, Sakina’s Restaurant, which he later adapted to the screen as Today’s Special, a 2010 film about a young sous chef who abandons his dreams of cooking French cuisine to take over his father’s Indian restaurant. “Today’s Special is my labor of love,” Mandvi tells us. “It’s a great little romantic comedy that deals with Indian food, and if you are a foodie, you will love the movie. It’s got so much food porn in it.”
Always love for Sakina’s Restaurant.
