Colbert is the funniest man on TV! (Particularly because his only competition this decade, Sacha Baron Cohen, has moved from the small screen to the big screen....)

This is based on a survey of 1,502 adults - give me a break.

Should it have been based on 1,502 children to make you happy? Or did you want Bill O'Reilly to be number one? Sorry, Fox.

Given proper sampling, a survey of 1502 adults can be quite accurate.

I watch "Daily Show" pretty regularly, but only catch Colbert once in a while... both are extremely funny, and you actually do learn something from them! I have to admit, most political talk & news bores me to tears, so I mentally "tune out" after a few minutes. Watching Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Colbert, etc., is the best way for me to stay current, since it keeps my attention... and yes, they are comedians with strong personal views, but they still cover the topics factually. The only "lies" are obvious jokes, but the stories themselves are 100% true.

P.S. I second the "Sacha (Baron-Cohen) Rules!"
