The Daily Show does Evolution

Via Pharyngula:

It is an age-old battle whose time has come. “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” will gather together all the experts (or at least those who will talk to them), travel to the places that matter in the debate (basic cable budget permitting) and ultimately settle the controversy once and for all. “Evolution Schmevolution: A Daily Show Special Report” will premiere on Monday, September 12 and air nightly at 11:00 p.m. through September 15.

For one full week, “The Daily Show” goes in-depth, around, through and quite possibly under, one of the hottest hot-button issues facing our nation: evolution. It’s the accepted theory on the origin of life by an overwhelming majority of the world’s biologists, but maybe they’re all wrong. What’s so great about the scientific method anyway?

I watch Daily Show clips as soon as I can get my hands on them, and as well as being very funny indeed the political commentary is among the sharpest around. Jon Stewart has always seemed on the ball, and I hope he gives the creationists the roasting they deserve. I’m looking forward to seeing it!

Incidentally, The Daily Show will soon be available in the UK on C4’s new channel, More4. Fantastic!
