Time for the annual debate: on PBS tonight, the newest version of the Mark Twain Prize.
Did you miss the announcement of the newest winner? (Program was taped in the fall, and only now going on air.)
ps: among the most overlooked and worthy potential recipients (this is NOT a posthumous award, by the way): Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, and the great political satirist Jon Stewart.
