Stewart/Colbert Rally: On Target or Overkill?
Anyone who can stay up past 11:00 pm knows that the late-night television landscape has long since been transformed by the Comedy Central shows of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. (And those who can't stay up just watch them online the next morning.) Few comedians are better at exposing any manner of hypocrisy than Stewart. And Colbert makes his points equally as clear through his character, a conservative political pundit. Now, their one-two punch is hitting the road, with a combined rally scheduled for October 30 at the National Mall in Washington, DC.
For this week's "Rewind," we're looking back at how "60 Minutes" has covered these two comedians over the years, as they prepare to tackle a whole new stage.
Tell us what you think. Are Stewart and Colbert on point with the rally idea, or are they in danger of taking the joke a step too far?
