Cramer vs. Stewart: The Day After

dailyshow_3-13.bmpSo the much-hyped showdown between Jim Cramer and Jon Stewart took place last night on The Daily Show (unedited video after the jump). How did it go?:

• The New York Times’ Alessandra Stanley thought it didn’t feel like a news or entertainment interview. “Mr. Stewart treated his guest like a C.E.O. subpoenaed to testify before Congress — his point was not to hear Mr. Cramer out, but to act out a cathartic ritual of indignation and castigation,” she writes of the “Democratic Senator from Comedy Central.”

• Variety’s Brian Lowry called it a “foolish appearance” by Cramer. “How this will play out is yet to be determined, but my gut says the whole ‘feud’ will likely fade away fairly soon,” he writes. “Nevertheless, given the pain the economy continues to inflict on the public, ‘The Daily Show’ has delivered a reminder of the need for independent-minded journalism.”

And Joe Scarborough tweeted last night that Cramer would appear exclusively on Morning Joe today to talk about the interview. But this morning he wrote: “No Cramer. Perhaps another example of oversleeping. Guess he had a late night. That is too bad. Producers told he was only talking to us.”

Despite what Erin Burnett had said the day before, Cramer wasn’t mentioned on NBC’s Today show either.
