Jon Stewart is set to take down Glenn Beck and his followers. Or at least make us laugh a lot.

On last night's edition of The Daily Show, the Comedy Central host announced his Rally To Restore Sanity, a response to Beck's Restoring Honor Rally on August 28.

As he explains below, it's also a response to the fact that "loud folks dominate the conversation on our country's most important issues." He wondered why the relatively sane population of the country (estimated at around 80%) aren't the ones yelling ridiculous, unproven statements. His conclusion? These people actually have "shit to do."

In response to Jon Stewart's rally, Stephen Colbert will hold the March To Keep Fear Alive. Amazing.

On October 30, though, Stewart hopes these individuals will actually do something in Washington D.C.

In a "call for rationality," the comedian really is serious about organizing a rally for citizens that take the approach of "I disagree with you, but I’m pretty sure you’re not Hitler," as well as those who are "dissatisfied, but not ideological." Heck, he even made a few signs for people in attendance to hold up.

Check them out, and watch the entire (utterly hilarious) segment/announcement now:

A couple weeks ago, Glenn Beck held the Restoring Honor Rally in Washington, D.C. It was attended by approximately 100,000 people.

Now, at least that many individuals apparently support the Restoring Truthiness Rally, as a Facebook page with that number of fans has cropped up, along with a website pleading with Stephen Colbert to hold such an event.

At ColbertRally dot com, readers urge other readers to spread the word about a gathering that would "flip a mirror to the Tea Party and show them just how ridiculous they are." Continues a passage on the website:

Okay, so Stephen Colbert had nothing to do with this. But this is what the Comedy Central host's trademark On Notice board would look like if THG got hold of it.

While Daniel Tosh may have passed him in the ratings, Colbert remains the man. Surely not a man you want to cross if you're an environmental disaster, anyway.

In honor of Stephen, and as a new means of calling out some things in the celebrity and real worlds that really deserve it, we're putting the following On Notice!

Puttin 'Em On Notice
  1. The oil spill. Way to ruin the Gulf of Mexico, BP.
  2. The View. This program is known for its outspoken panel's controversial stances ... but their ignorant HIV comments were straight out of the early 1980s.
  3. Mel Gibson. The fact that we had a hard time deciding which insane, racist, sexist Mel Gibson tirade to link to in this article tells you all you need to know.
  4. OK! Magazine. At least make up new lies. Yeesh.
  5. LeBron James' "team." No, not the Heat. The marketing gurus who convinced him to stick it to Cleveland on national TV. Way to "build a brand," guys!
  6. The-Dream. Stop lying. We know you were creepin'.
  7. East Coast weather. Al Gore must be cackling right now. If we wanted to live in a furnace, we'd move to Arizona. At least everything there has AC.
  8. Frank from The Bachelorette. We're not gonna give away any Bachelorette spoilers here ... but it's in the previews. How can you pull that crap, man?

In November, Conan O'Brien will return to late night with a talk show on TBS.

For now, though, he's continuing to go across the country with his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour.

It stopped in Radio City Music Hall last night, and audience members were treated to the funniest dance-off since Step Up 2: The Streets. Who did O'Brien go up against? The Comedy Central duo of Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart.

When all was said and done, one man lay dying on the floor, while another asked for his time slot...

Move over, Jay-Z.

The hip hop mogul, whose "Empire State of Mind" is one the most popular songs of 2009, might need to find a new line of work.

After all, Alicia Keys has evidently found a new duet partner on the hit single.

On last night's installment of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert grabbed a mic (and a hoodie) and rapped his own verse of the song, offering a shout-out to NYC's suburbs that included lines such as "My shorties are all private school educated" and:

I love New York/King of all the cities/Lived up by the Guggenheim/Til i got some kiddies...

It's great stuff. Check it out below.

A night after ambushing Taylor Swift on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards, somber Kanye West told Jay Leno he is going to try to take some time and figure out his issues, to try to understand what the heck made him react like that.

Well, Stephen Colbert has it all figured out.

Last December, the Comedy Central figure launched Operation: Humble Kanye in an effort to knock the celeb world's perennial egomaniac and sore loser down a peg.

On The Colbert Report in the aftermath of Kanye's outburst this week, he thinks his long-running operation may have had something to do with the blowup Sunday.

Stephen Colbert reacts to Kanye's meltdown as many of us have.

Was the outburst actually directed towards Colbert? Stephen thinks so! Why is Kanye going after Taylor Swift, and not the people who actually beat him for awards?

Why would the jackass not go after Eninem, Beyonce or whatever ate Lady Gaga? Colbert believes he knows why. Because he and Taylor Swift are totally friends.

Makes perfect sense to us. We feel enlightened.

Last night, Stephen Colbert paid tribute to U.S. troops during a taping of The Colbert Report in Iraq, getting his head shaved in one of Saddam Hussein’s palaces.

As military personnel watched, Gen. Ray Odierno followed videotaped orders from the Commander-in-Chief himself, President Barack Obama, and shaved his head.

Colbert's dome is a show of solidarity with the 130,000 troops still stationed in Iraq. Stephen has been taping his comedy show in Iraq for the past week.

Here's Colbert getting shorn ...

BIC IT: Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert gets the military treatment.

The comedian's ability to bring humor to a serious, often divisive situation while still showing he supports the troops above all else is no small feat.

The Colbert shaved head is a (hilarious) reminder of the sacrifice our men and women in uniform make every day, regardless of our political views.

Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando airs this week. Follow the jump for a video of Stephen Colbert talking about it on Good Morning America:

Does Stephen Colbert use Twitter?

It was an innocent question posed by Meredith Vieira on the Today show this morning. Innocent until Colbert coined a hilarious, past-tense usage of Twitter.

You can probably figure it out, but play the video below to hear it for yourself, and listen for Vieira's reaction to his response, something to effect of "Oh, God" ...

Stephen Colbert gave the commencement speech at Princeton University this past weekend. As usual, The Colbert Report host offered everyone pearls of wisdom.

"Gandhi said, ‘you must be the change you want to see in the world,'" Colbert told an audience of thousands. "But may I also point out he drank his own urine, so let's not go overboard on his advice."

It's hard to argue with that logic.

The protege of Jon Stewart added that the Class of 2008 "can change the world," but he pleaded with its members to "please don't do that."

"Some of us like it the way it is," Colbert said. "Personally, things are going great for me right now."

The Hollywood Gossip agrees. We're all for change, Barack Obama, but keep your focus on Iraq and the mortgage crisis. Don't enact underwear-wearing policies for female celebrities. Please.

Every night on The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert preaches "truthiness." That is, a version of facts that doesn't exactly take evidence, logic or intellectual examination into account.

However, there's nothing illogical about this: the sarcastic talk show host turns 44 today!

In honor of his birthday, we bestow upon Stephen Colbert the gift that would make him most happy: a photo montage of himself! Click on the following thumbnails now for larger, truthier versions...
