Last Night’s TV: Jon Stewart vs. Brian Williams — Who’s Funnier? (Plus, um, Leno and Rove)

Jon Stewart sure picked the wrong week to take a vacation! The Daily Show host returned to the airwaves last night armed with week-old jokes about health care reform, which would have been a problem if they weren’t so funny. Particularly of note is the debate that happens between Mr. Stewart and Daily Show correspondents John Oliver and Wyatt Cenac, which you can see starting at 4:15 in this clip.
