A few weeks ago we asked about how you felt about Daniel Tosh's "Tosh.0" on Comedy Central and we got the idea that you liked him, and the fact is that viewers like him so much that he is now the most popular show host on Comedy Central, beating out Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. The network hasn't seen show ratings like "Tosh.0" since "Chappelle's Show" in 2004.
Late night TV is back this week after taking off most of last week, although now the aforementioned Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are on hiatus. We will miss "Daily Show" correspondent John Oliver's brilliant posts from South Africa like the one at the end of this post.
While it was a shame to see Lance Armstrong knocked out of contention in yesterday's stage of the Tour de France by a series of crashes, we were heartened by how extremely competitive the stage was - winner Andy Schleck of Luxembourg is very young and will be around for some time to come, perhaps another legacy is in the making?
