Jon Stewart and Jim Cramer

One one side, we have Jon Stewart, one of the most intelligent minds on TV Comedy. On the other side, Jim Cramer, the fast talking but often misunderstood stock adviser. Jon Stewart and Jim Cramer, we watched closely as the day to day events unfold on TV.

The classic take down on CNBC by Jon Stewart on the Daily Show started when Rick Santelli, a CNBC personality, 'bailed out' from appearing on the Daily Show after previously saying that he would.

Jim Cramer responded to Jon Stewart through his column in the Mainstreet.com. Somehow Jim took one for the team by being the only person who responded to the comedy skit from the previous week.

That same night, Jon Stewart had this to say in his show.

Jim Cramer was scheduled to appear on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. But before that, Jim Cramer guested in Martha Stewart Living. Watch Jim Cramer as he appears on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart.




What's the next chapter in this epic battle between two giant networks? What is your take on what happened? For me, two things. One, I can get my news from Comedy Central. And two, what happened was good for TV ratings, but sadly, not for anything else...

Jim Cramer was brave to even think of facing Jon Stewart on his own show so hats off to him.

Anonymous, thanks for your comment. Cramer took it a bit too personally when Stewart was actually attacking the whole financial media as a whole.
