As someone who isn’t much interested in televised karaoke-singing (and a Brit to boot), I strike a lonely figure in the EW office during the climactic weeks of what I believe you folks refer to as The Idol of the Americas.

Fortunately, last night, The Daily Show tackled said political crisis in a segment that I think is the funniest Jon Stewart and crew have done in a while and also offered a great showcase for the comedic skills of my countryman John Oliver.
