That creaking, crunching, tearing sound you hear is a little bit of distance dividing Jon Stewart and generations of pop-culture loving fans.
Seth MacFarlane, last year's Oscar's host, was the guest of two-time host Stewart on Monday's Daily Show when they started talking about what a horrible gig it is. Stewart says "It's the worst job . . ." and MacFarlane agrees: "There's no way to win. It's like the Kobayashi Maru. . ." and gets only by the blankest of stares. Go to 1:00 and weep.
