Fox Preps Conservative ‘Daily Show’
Posted on Nov 21, 2006
Fox News Channel is teaming with Joel Surnow (the creator of “24”) to create a right-wing version of “The Daily Show.”
With the Dems in power, this might actually be a good thing; it could force the weakest links of the party to acknowledge and deal with their myriad failings.
Comedy Central has made a good living out of skewering the political right.
Now Fox News Channel, a primary source of material for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, is teaming with the exec producer of “24” to try its hand at a news satire show for conservatives to love.
Joel Surnow, co-creator of “24,” is shooting two half-hour pilots of a skein he described as ” ‘The Daily Show’ for conservatives,” due to air in primetime on Saturdays in January.
