One of CNN International’s odder scheduling decisions is to show brilliant US satirical comedy The Daily Show with Jon Stewart slap bang in the middle of their weekend lineup. Things took an even more surreal twist on Friday night when CNN interrupted the show in the middle of a comedy piece to show live footage of Ronald Reagan’s coffin arriving in California.

I have to admit, I kept watching the coverage for a few minutes, thinking that they’d cut back to Stewart in the studio doing a comedy double take. Now that would have been excellent.
