This is an open thread. That means we’re not going to be writing our usual full review, but we thought you might like the opportunity to chat about the show anyway. Use this space for all your usual commenting shenanigans, and we’ll drop in if we have something to say about the episode in question.
Late night gets lost in the No-Spin Zone tonight, with a new Late Show and a Daily Show rerun providing plenty of time in which Bill O’Reilly can call people “pinhead.” The playful, battle of ideologically opposed wits between O’Reilly and Stewart is usually good for a kind-of-like-watching-your-family-members-argue-at-Thanksgiving gawking; seeing as Letterman more or less invented that style of interview, expect some decent fireworks and at least three inflammatory, failed jokes at the expense of #OccupyWallStreet.
