In a "Daily Show" segment Monday, Jason Jones shed light on one part of society that "is still suffering in ways we never imagined. " What group is this? 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.

In ABC's "Last Resort," Navy SEAL James King has come to the rescue of the USS Colorado crew on more than a few occasions, despite claims he doesn't want to get involved in their standoff with the U.S. government. Daniel Lissing, who plays King in the series from Rockford native Shawn Ryan, thinks that makes perfect sense. "He's a Navy SEAL. He's an American and he's patriotic," Lissing said during a phone interview Tuesday. "He's got a lot to make up for, but he still gets a buzz from all the action.
