WATCH: Jon Stewart Compares CNN to Evil Chucky Doll While Being Interviewed on CNN

Jon Stewart appeared on CNN this weekend, mostly to discuss his new movie Rosewater, but he also briefly touched upon how the network fares at its job. The comedian/media critic did a pretty funny, if half-hearted imitation of Wolf Blitzer (“In an exclusive tonight, the Empire State building is blue”), and compared CNN to the Chucky doll of the horror movie franchise Child's Play. “Sometimes it’s good Chucky,” Stewart said, and then warned, “you really gotta watch out for bad Chucky.”
