I hate to admit it but Rob Riggle's reports from China have NBC beat. At first I really thought he was in front of a green screen but as his reports went on it did become obvious that he was really there. I don't know how they managed to get him in the country when so many others have had their visa's denied. He must have slipped through a chink in their armor. His pocket Chinese translator was a riot. Even then, he couldn't get people to talk to him. I seems the Chinese do not have a sense of humor. Way to go Rob and Comedy Central. Great job at putting some levity in the Olympics.

You mean to tell me that the Daily Show is fake news. Next you'll be telling me that Fox News is actually a real news network.
