There's a reason all the kids are watching the cable tee-vee at night. While Jay Leno's chin highlights the incompetence of others by dropping in references to <insert terrible sports team here>, "The Colbert Report" takes on actual news from baseball.
OK, so there was a joke about the Chicago Cubs in there. But otherwise that's the type of inside-baseball stuff we want served with our daily serving of night-time chuckles.
The good news is that we're getting it from Colbert all day Friday. After winning a bet with some folks at the league office, Colbert has control of the @MLB Twitter feed all day long.
