The latest addition to The Daily Show format is The Seat of Heat, an added over-the-top question at the end of the main interview segment. If this feature is still in place at Halloween, I’ll be surprised. It destroys the biggest strength of the main interview – the Stewart sets the appropriate interview level for each interviewee, whether it’s a fluffy fun interview with Ludacris or an insightful and even acidic political talk. Instead, they all get moved to the same level. And any impact that the interview had is thrown away by that ending.
