Half Hour News Hour - The Right Wing Alternative To The Daily Show - R.I.P

Fox dubbed it the Right-Wing alternative to the Daily Show, but it looks like the Half Hour News Hour has garnered about as much support as Qube TV.

“You can turn on any show and see Bush being bashed,” said creator Joel Surnow, producer of Fox’s 24. “There really is nothing out there for those who want satire that tilts right.” Unfortunately, as Fox has now learned, that’s because no one wants to watch that kind of satire...and TVNewser reports today that the HHNH has been canceled.

The first show guest-starred right-wing all-stars Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter as President and Vice President. Here's the clip from the preview (soon it will be all you can find on the program):

Jon Stewart is funny too, not only because he tells the truth, but because he does it from an informed stance....not some right wing slapstick bit or melodrama.....kind of like comparing a low budget infomercial with a well researched documentary.
