This Week on Comedy Central

After a few slow weeks, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are back to featuring an array of authors, as well as a movie based on a book.


The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Stewart returns the favor of appearing on O’Reilly’s show to promote his book, Earth (The Book). That outing did not produce the sparks of Stewart’s earlier appearances on “The No Spin Zone.” Perhaps the Daily Show set will bring on the heat.

The Colbert Report

One of the first books by an Obama administration insider, The Wall Street Journal says Overhaul its “Cutting, detailed presentation often makes the reader feel like he’s sitting at the table, feeling the tension, wincing at the profanity and taking in the scent of fast food breakfast sandwiches. There’s also a good chance the book will make readers angry.”

On their cover last week, New York magazine dubbed it “The Movie Facebook Doesn’t Want You to See.”
