Richard Huff still smarting from Golden Girls cancellation

In his article today Richard Huff is complaining about the choice of Jon Stewart for host of the Oscars.

The main argument is that Stewart only reaches an audience of 1.5 million people and that the rest of the country isn't going to be "inside" to get his jokes. Richard aka Dick claims to be among this majority who aren't "in" with Stewart. Apparently that isn't enough exposure on a daily basis as say Billy Crystal gets. As all the parents and grandparents who were shocked to see two cowboys kissing in Brokeback Mountain are obviously the target audience this year given the range of movies out (Johnny Cash was certainly a clean living sort.)

I guess Dick should stay on the outside with the audience who is pretty much guaranteed to tune into the show, rather than the Academy trying to appeal to a set of traditional non viewers. I'm sure Dick can find some re-runs of his Golden Girls on somewhere.
