Lax security, transportation strikes and a sheep-filled opening ceremony are just a few.

Jon Stewart Lists London's Olympic Problems

In this article…

Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart confronted London about it's pre-Olympics difficulties. 

Although the "boiled ham in a Donald Trump wig" mayor of London claimed this would be "the greatest Games ever," Stewart pointed out some setbacks that may prevent London from living up to the high standards set by Beijing in 2008. 

While the plan for London's opening ceremony may look tame compared to the fireworks and insane precision of Beijing's opening ceremony, only two days separate us from discovering if those sheep will be dancing in boxes and painting calligraphy on the floor. 

In other news, Stewart and his life partner Stephen Colbert have both extended their contracts with Comedy Central.  Stewart is set to continue to rule The Daily Show through the middle of 2015, and Colbert will remain stationed behind his C-shaped desk at The Colbert Report through 2014. 

BothThe Daily Show and The Colbert Report were recently nominated for four Emmy nominations each, further exemplifying why I love these shows, and will continue to love them, at least through 2015.
