Jim Cramer on Last Night's Daily Show

Even if you haven't been following the "feud" between Jon Stewart and CNBC, ou owe it to yourself to catch a great half-hour of television.

As I write this at 3:00 a.m., the Daily Show's website doesn't have the video up yet, but by the time you read this, it should be all over the Net and Comedy Central is rerunning the show at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.. It wasn't Jon Stewart's funniest interview, but it might have been his best ever.

Stewart is at his best when he's at his most passionate and least concerned with being funny. This was more compelling than Frost/Nixon, and all the more effective for being fair rather than a takedown.
