Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This British discussion show was taped in New York with popular American cable-TV host Jon Stewart at the helm. On each program, two guest stars -- one from the U.S., one from the U.K. -- discussed an important news event, with Stewart "translating" American slang and cultural references for the benefit of the Britisher. At the end of the program, a "remote broadcast" would announce where in the world the elusive (and dead) Elvis Presley had been spotted during the previous week. Debuting October 6, 1996, the series ran for a little over a year in England, and was briefly revived in the States a few years later.
