Just because there's like, 150 episodes a year? And because the material is time-sensitive? MAKE IT HAPPEN, COMEDY CENTRAL.

They released that Indecision 2004 set. Plus every segment of every episode is on http://www.thedailyshow.com/.

Rights issues on clips maybe?

Every year they should have a "The Year In Headlines" DVD screw the interviews and reports. Just give me Jon doing the headlines and I'll be happy.

The correspondent stuff is brilliant too. I'd want all of those. Seriously, that comedy performs almost nightly all year and it's almost always brilliant. I don't know how they do it.

The Comedy Network in Canada hijacked the Comedy Central US site so I can no longer access all the clips on thedailyshow.com.

I have the InDecision 2004 set (I got mine from the actual Daily Show staff :twisted:).

I was amazed at how it didn't really hold up. This sounds weird, but the picture and sound is too pristine and the material just isn't fresh anymore.

It is all good stuff, but the DVDs lose some of the magic.

Yes, yes, and no thanks.

Wrong, I own this and watch it all the time, so good.

I want full seasons of Conan O'Brien.

That'd be sick. But it'd be a huge-ass box that it would come in.

I'm suprised in a way that they don't do DVDs of gameshows. I'm sure someone would buy them.
