Stewart Will Have Hard Time Booking Schieffer for DC Shows

mitchell_bushpresser_0112_480x360.jpg If you chased down “Daily Show” tickets yesterday with the hopes of seeing CBS News’ Bob Schieffer as a guest of Jon Stewart’s (as TVNewser speculated yesterday) you might be out of luck.

In a segment on’s “Washington Unplugged” with Jan Crawford and Politico‘s Kiki Ryan today, Schieffer, who has been featured on the Comedy Central show twice, said he’s going to quit while he’s ahead.

Crawford and Ryan prodded, but Schieffer wasn’t budging. “This guy is one of the smartest and craftiest interviewers on television,” Schieffer said. “You better have your best game when you go to talk with Jon Stewart.”

Watch the “Washington Unplugged” episode with Schieffer after the jump…

Presidential candidate of yesteryear and former GOP Senator Fred Thompson and his new memoir “Teaching the Pig to Dance” were celebrated at the home of Juleanna Glover on Saturday evening.

Despite intense weekend heat and humidity (Note: Thompson was not rocking a Hypercolor button-down – that’s sweat), journalists such as WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger, NBC’s Betsy Fischer, Roll Call’s Jackie Kucinich, Janet Donovan, Politico’s Kiki Ryan and Jonathan Martin, CBS’ Jan Crawford and Christine Delargy joined guests like Jack and Susanna Quinn, Mark Neuman, Christopher Reiter, Janine Turner and Karen Feld to raise a glass for Thompson.

Noticeably absent from the fete were several of the invitation-featured hosts including Kay Kendall, Tammmy Haddad and Bo Derek.

Schieffer’s Big Night Out With Paisley

Bob Schieffer and Brad Paisley are buds…

Despite an early Sunday wake-up call, the “Face the Nation” anchor was out late at the Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker concert Saturday night with CBS Chief Justice correspondent Jan Crawford and his assistant Kaylee Hartung.

Sporting a jacket with his own band’s name “Honky Tonk Confidential” embroidered on the back and his signature cowboys boots, Schieffer even made it on to the tour bus to say hi to his old pal.

Schieffer and Paisley originally met on the stage of the Grand Old Opry in Nashville during the 2008 debate season. Paisley and his wife actress Kimberly Williams were then guests of CBS at the 2009 White House Correspondents Association Dinner.

But Bob’s party didn’t end there… Schieffer and his entourage even made a late-night appearance at Jim Courtovich‘s Gaucho party. We hear CBS expects “Face the Nation” ratings to jump up this week- everyone at the Gaucho party certainly tuned in to make sure Schieffer made it to the set after calling it a night at nearly 1am…
