They've also got the rights to Whitney and How To Be a Gentleman.


I don't know why they would want How to be a Gentleman, it was a flop in the US and after the 5th episode it was pulled from the schedule - in fact Episodes 6 to 9 could have a world premier on Comedy Central rather than on CBS.

I've wanted to watch The Daily Show for a while now so it's nice to see it getting picked up. But it makes me wonder why CC have never shown interest in the likes of David Letterman or Craig Ferguson or other such daily, late-night shows. I know The Daily Show is more satire than chat show but they're still comedic, nonetheless...

CC's earlier incarnation, Paramount Comedy, did show David Letterman for a while. A few channels have tried Letterman but I assume it just doesn't do that well. It's a shame, but then again whenever I've been over in the US I've only ever watched the beginning

I personally really like Comedy Central at the moment, it has arguably the best presentation on TV at the moment

Oh yeah, those upscaled cropped idents are a feast for the eyes.


I was referring to the presentation not the idents.


Sorry, I was talking about lamps, not presentation.


Rolling Eyes Presentation other than the idents, then.
