It has been well-established that Fox and other conservative media groups have wanted to counter the Daily Show/Colbert Report duo with a conservative counterpart. Their answer has been the "1/2 Hour News Hour," starring Joel Surnow, who gained his fame writing for Miami Vice.
A clip of the upcoming show has been released (leaked?) and it is painfully apparent: they just don't get it. This is unfunny crap. Fart jokes? Marrion Berry cocaine jokes? Who on Earth does this appeal to?
