Demetri Martin Starring + Jon Stewart Producing = Me Plotzing

Feel the giddiness, bitchez!

Comedy Central is set to announce Wednesday the pickup of a second series from "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart's production company.

The sketch-variety show "Important Things With Demetri Martin" is slated for the second half of 2008; anywhere from six to 10 episodes will be executive produced by Stewart and Martin, who has been a featured contributor on "Daily Show."

"Martin" is the second series Comedy Central has ordered from Stewart's Busboy Prods. since they struck a first-look deal in 2005. "The Colbert Report" was their first collaboration.
And we all know how that turned out: Gutly!

In case anyone needs a reminder of how awesome Jon Stewart actually is, just check out his interview with Chris Matthews last night. I nearly choked when he told the giant misogynist Rockem Sockem robot of doom, "I'm not trashing your book; I'm trashing your philosophy of life," and I howled like a hyena when he met the robot's invitation to appear on Hardball with, "I don't troll."

Lookatim go!
