jon stewart to host the oscars on march 5

yeah, thats right, jon stewart to host the oscars to bring in the stoned and 5-15 demographic. that's a pretty big endorsement. i'm disappointed that it wasn't stephen colbert.

even in accepting this invitation, jon stewart this has to crack a joke:

"As a performer, I'm truly honored to be hosting the show," Stewart said. "Although, as an avid watcher of the Oscars, I can't help but be a little disappointed with the choice. It appears to be another sad attempt to smoke out Billy Crystal."

and later on in the article, they mention Chris Rock as "Rock". it got me confused with THE ROCK.

Producers of the telecast have made strenuous efforts in recent years to lure back younger viewers to Hollywood's biggest night. Rock, last year's host, introduced an edgy, provocative tone to the show and drew a mixed reception.
