|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Verizon iPhone Announcement|
Jon Stewart is taking the news about iPhone and Verizon very seriously. As well he should.
“Our long national nightmare may finally be over,” intones “The Daily Show” host, before shouting, “Freedom!!! Next he demonstrates his “second phone” and how he has had to send text messages to folks like, oh say, his pal Stephen Colbert using AT&T. With the help of a polio stricken aide who has to physically carry the iPhone to the intended text recipient. Yes, it has not been pretty.
Next “Daily Show” correspondent John Oliver goes live (via his iPhone) with the predicted delays of AT&T and finally, “Call Failed.”Finally, Oliver interviews various angry victims of AT&T, takes us to the actual announcement and shows the resulting chaos in the streets on VZ Day. All before another, final “Call Failed.”
