Score one for the new guy

When FX announced it was trying out a couple of late-night shows, the safe money would have been on the guy you've heard of (Russell Brand of "Brand X") putting on a more watchable, interesting show than the guy you likely hadn't heard of before (W. Kamau Bell of "Totally Biased"). The safe money was wrong. Brand's live-wire persona did not come across well in "Brand X," but Bell's "Daily Show"-esque series is getting better by the week. --Rick Porter, Zap2it
