"West Wing" Shoutout on Daily Show - White House "Jumped the Shark"?

Watch the clip here.

So, last night on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, there was a large segment that basically had a "correspondent" talking about the Bush White House as though it was the TV show. They discussed the "seasons" of the TV show called "The White House" in the same style and references as we talk about the seasons of the The West Wing. And it was agreed (like we agree about The West Wing) that Season 5 of "The White House" is not nearly as good TV as Season 3 was....

That Daily Show report about the televison show "The White House" and its fans, "the Whitees" was definitely a mockery of TWoP and one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. I lost it when they got into a debate as to when "The White House" jumped the shark, and Cheney went from being portrayed as plausibly evil to cartoonishly evil. Total, very funny shout-out."

In the US, "The Daily Show", will be rerun at 8PM ET. In the UK, More4 is showing the Daily Show episode at 8:30 PM GMT and at 9:30 PM GMT on More4 + 1
