What's the Frequency, Ken?

You know, I used to really, really like Ken Tucker. He was my favorite Entertainment Weekly writer. But this profile of The Daily Show is so far off the mark, and descends so much into Ken Tucker's Opinion Uber Alles, that it's pathetic. "Stewart overthinks his questions into circular logic"? "Lewis Black has really never been funny a second in his life"? Sounds to me like Kenny-boy's trying awy too hard for that Ain't I Hip For Going Against the Grain demographic.
