Today, the United States. This weekend, Washington, D.C.
In a poll of more than half a million readers, the online magazine AskMen.com has voted Jon Stewart the most influential man of 2010, it was announced Tuesday.
The distinction arrives only days ahead of this weekend's "Rally to Restore Sanity" being organized by the Daily Show host and his Comedy Central colleague, Stephen Colbert, in the nation's capital.
As for his influence, AskMen says, "Despite his innumerable enemies, Stewart's acerbic take on the madness around him continues to draw audiences who look to the funnyman as a voice of reason. Stewart's show was once dubbed the 'fake news,' but these days it's become our youths' most trusted source of information, and its host the most trusted man in America."

Before Pitt, Vaughn and Mayer, there was Stewart – Jon Stewart, that is.
When Jennifer Aniston visited The Daily Show Thursday night, the talk-show host reminded her that they'd shared a romantic Italian meal in New York City more than a decade ago. But their recollections of the evening were, to say the least, somewhat conflicting.

Two debates down, one to go. And Michelle Obama would be just fine staying at home for that last one, thank you very much.
The wife of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama admitted Wednesday night that she generally doesn't like to attend her husband's debates. "I get nervous," she explained on the The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. "I'm fine with people calling me and saying he did a good job. And it's like, Good, I got to watch Dick Van Dyke."

Likely to be in a tux when he assumes his emcee duties at Sunday night's Oscar ceremony, Jon Stewart was recently found unshaved and sporting army boots in the nether regions of Hollywood's Kodak Theatre – prepping for the job ahead.
"This is an exercise in battle stations," the Daily Show host, who just survived the three-month writers' strike, tells The New York Times about his upcoming weekend job. "In some ways it allows your mind to be in that fight-or-flight mode the whole time: 'Okay, we're mice being chased by a cat. Let's just do it.' "

RANKED: Though it's often claimed that Teri Hatcher gets all the attention, Eva Longoria is the only star of Desperate Housewives to make Maxim magazine's new Hot 100 list – in fact, Longoria is No. 1. "It's kind of exciting and shocking all at the same time, because I was No. 91 last year," Longoria, 30, tells USA Today. "Considering all the women in the world, No. 91 isn't all that bad. But I didn't go to the party (last year), because I don't think anyone wants the 90s at the party." Modest about her status this year as well, Longoria tells that paper that she'd rank Angelina Jolie (whom the men's magazine ranked as No. 7) at the top of the list. "Angelina is the definition of sexy," Longoria says. "Everything about her is sexy – her empowerment, confidence, strength, beauty, character, her morals and what she stands for."
