It wouldn't be an awards show without an f-bomb.
Actually, it would be, but an f-bomb always adds spice, even when bleeped.
The man who did the honors at Sunday night's Emmy show was Jon Stewart, excitedly accepting his 10th consecutive trophy for best variety series.
He began his acceptance speech by noting that "The Daily Show" deals in topical comedy, "which has the shelf life of egg salad." He added that the Emmy does indicate "The Daily Show" has some value.
In some future age, he went on to say, holding his Emmy aloft, aliens arriving on Earth "will find a box of these."
"And they will know how predictable these (bleeping) things are," he added.
