Jon Stewart talks about Rick Sanchez in this Daily Show video

Watch Jon Stewart’s Daily Show Rick Sanchez smackdown in this video clip from Monday’s show. On second thought, maybe “smackdown” is a little harsh, given that Jon Stewart’s digs on Sanchez seemed pretty mild.

Of course, as Jon Stewart noted, the whole Rick-Sanchez-calling-Stewart-a-bigot-and-getting-fired deal is kind of old news by comedy’s standards, but it’s not like Stewart can just leave it alone.

Jon Stewart opened his October 4 show by addressing the comments that Rick Sanchez made that ultimately cost him his job. Stewart joked about hearing he was called a bigot: “Omigod! Rick Sanchez knows my name!”

In Stewart’s defense, he says that Sanchez’s “Rick’s List” is a highly “pokeable” show, so it was really ripe for making fun of.

Then Stewart ran a video montage of clips that compared Rick Sanchez to The Office’s Michael Scott, even saying that since Sanchez is now available, maybe he can take over as Steve Carell’s replacement next season: “Carell is leaving The Office, NBC is looking to replace him… Sanchez is available!”

What did you think of Jon Stewart’s Daily Show jokes about Rick Sanchez – did he go too hard on Sanchez, too easy… or just right?
