Ugly people or "uglo-Americans," as "The Daily Show" coined them. Ugly people have a harder time getting loans and make less money, according to University of Texas economics professor Daniel S. Hamermesh, who argues the U.S. should offer the same legal protections afforded to other minority groups to the unattractive.  "The Daily Show" skewered the idea on Monday's episode.

Three months. That's how long you'll have to go without America's most popular satirist - and, awkwardly enough, its most trusted newsman. Jon Stewart is taking a three-month hiatus from "The Daily Show" this summer to direct his first movie, "Rosewater. " Written by Stewart, the movie tells the true story of a former guest who was jailed by Iranian authorities while reporting on the elections there.
