Gotta Laugh

Interesting article in Monday’s New York Times about Comedy Central and its audience.

Young men are the cable network’s most important viewers.  The story says young men view comedy as “essential” to their lives, which, I suppose, is a good thing.  It is, after all, so much more fun to laugh than to sob uncontrollably.

And research done for the network found that “irony has been replaced by absurdity.”

This is good.  I can do absurdity.  I have nearly four decades of experience.

Laugh on.

    The Daily Show is in an ironic way quite relavant so is Steven Colbert, however, I prefer the “real news of “NBC Connecticut” followed by Jay Leno.

    Thank you.

    When you catch Jay Leno doing his “Jaywalking” interviews, you see a representative cross-section of the Daily Show target audience.
