The Conservative Daily Show

Fox News and "24" co-creator Joel Surnow are teaming up to create a right-wing version of "The Daily Show."

Will it work? Possibly, but I'm not optimistic. Cutting-edge conservative humor is like liberal talk radio- no one knows why, but it just seems to fail completely every time it's tried. And besides: while no one denies that "Daily Show" has a liberal tilt, many conservatives still generally appreciate its humor and find it funny. I can't imagine most liberals would feel the same way about a righty version; most of them think Fox News is comical enough as it is.
