The late night talk circuit was buzzing Monday night (May 2) with jokes regarding the news of Osama Bin Laden’s death.
]]>Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show,” weighed in with his usual flare. “We’ve got a really good show for you tonight. Our guest tonight, Philip K. Howard, he’s filling in,” Stewart begins. “We had an originally scheduled guest, Osama Bin Laden, who is, uh… At the time we thought it was a pretty special booking… I knew he would puss out.” The “Daily Show” host adds that he had tuned into “The Celebrity Apprentice” that night to see if “Obama and Seth Meyers‘ absolute shellacking of Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday had left a visible mark.” He then continues to describe his immediate reaction to the break in programming. “Just when it looked like the sad dark haired lady was about to be ritually sacrificed by the lady who used to ruin ‘The View,’ boom! They break into ‘The Celebrity Apprentice,” he says. “This is like, 10:30 at night. Out of nowhere — ‘The President had an announcement’ — So immediately, you start thinking there’s only two things this could probably be. “A. The President is interrupting ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ to deliver more jokes. The ones that he had not quite finished about Donald Trump. He just popped up on Sunday and went like, ‘Oh f*** that was a great one!’ and he was just going to interrupt the show to get him some more. Or B. The more likely scenario, as Hollywood has taught us. When a black President interrupts your show, a meteor is headed towards the earth.” Watch the opening monologue below.
