Sports isn’t a subject matter Jon Stewart usually covers on “The Daily Show,” but the spectacle that the Super Bowl has become was too good a topic for the Comedy Central host to ignore.

And how could Stewart not talk about the game? The 47th annual NFL event Sunday had just about everything, from the brother vs. brother coaching plotline, to Beyonce’s halftime reunion with Destiny’s Child (or, as Stewart said of the other group members, Beyonce “even let two contest winners join her onstage!”), to the post-halftime blackout (“A multimillion dollar sound and light show was immediately followed by yet another sign that our basic infrastructure is on the verge of collapse,” Stewart joked), to the “controversial” GoDaddy ad that featured supermodel Bar Refaeli kissing a guy who clearly was not her looks equal, and a player (Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis) who overcame his history as an accused double-murderer to find God and make it to the Super Bowl.

Clearly, Stewart had no shortage of material to work with here.
