Oprah sends 'Daily Show' audience to Jon Stewart's D.C. rally
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear Announcement|
Stephen Colbert tried to steal Jon Stewart's mojo last night. But Stewart had a secret weapon -- Oprah.
Colbert crashed the taping of "The Daily Show" Thursday (Oct. 14), first offering a sob story about he didn't get a permit for his "March to Keep Fear Alive" on Oct. 30 in Washington. After a sympathetic Stewart added Colbert's name to the, ahem, official permit, Colbert snatched it away and proclaimed that Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity" will now be the "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear."
But then, Stewart played his ace in the hole. As you can see in the clip above, Oprah Winfrey appeared on the "Daily Show" video wall and announced herself as a member of Team Sanity by telling the audience to look under their seats -- where tickets to Washington, D.C., and the rally were waiting (and, we hope, hotel reservations too. Rooms in D.C. are apparently booked solid).
It's not a car or a trip to Australia, but it's not bad.
Stewart's mojo restored, Oprah went back about her business. Not to be outdone, though, Colbert also passed out rally tickets to the "Colbert Report" audience on his show.
