This whole thing is a disgrace and yet everyone connected with Penn State is just worrying about the school! Who is worrying about all the kids that have been damaged for life?

Still no jokes about this asshole? I know that Dave and Jay did apparently nothing last week, but c'mon, this week they have to use this in the monologues? That interview had comedic material written all over it.

Have any of you seen this weeks late night shows?

Dave and Jay do make a lot of jokes about things, but frankly I can't find anything the least bit funny in this situation. But then I don't think I have watched all of any late night show in I don't know how many years. I may catch bits and pieces of them, but that is about it. I don't ever watch much of the guy I really like which is Craig Ferguson. I think he is really funny and I love that Scottish accent

People get carried away with sport, that's life. There's a murderer playing in the third division of football here.

Mae is right.

There are a lot of valid subjects for jokes on late night TV, but the sexual abuse of children is not one of them. I don't imagine that most people are in the mood to laugh at Jerry Sandusky (at least not yet).

The situation itself is not funny, that is for sure. But Sandusky himself should be ridiculed. And that has always been the late night culture. Really no situation is too sacred there. I remember years ago the OJ Simpson saga. The first week was very quiet and they made maybe a few subtle references, but after a while it really got wild and OJ was the main news for months. And of course Michael Jackson was as well and they made very nasty jokes about him too. Well, for a reason.

Jacko was in the news pretty much for the same reason as Sandusky and there's really nothing funny about a horrific double murder either.

I just think it's impossible to ignore Sandusky. I guess SNL did some kind of reference last week.

Pedophilia and humor is nothing new. Hell one of Family Guy's most popular characters is a pedophile. They will probably makes jokes about it as time passes.

Jon Stewart and Howard Stern have apparently been talking about this and they have made fun of Sandusky.

This week's South Park made a load of jokes about it.

Seems a bit fresh still to be making jokes.

Perhaps I'm disturbed because I only recently read the full grand jury report.

I watched a Leno episode from last thursday. He made one quick Paterno reference about finding work, but nothing else. But there was something that I found incredible. There was this comedy piece where Jay and another comedian did a Q&A kind of thing and audience members asked questions. One woman who asked a question came from Pennsylvania and her last name was Sandusky. I just couldn't believe my ears. Jay didn't say anything about the name, they just continued with the bit, but that's just unbelievable. I don't think the name Sandusky is that common.

South Park's ripping on Penn State was pretty funny last night.

Sad to say but this kind of abuse happens in every sport and it's been going on for decades. The school and other people who covered up for Sandusky doesn't surprise me. Date rapes have always been swept under the rug to protect star players, what makes people think this would be any different?

Yes, child abuse is another one of those fucked up American phenoms the rest of the world doesn't have to worry about, like obesity and crazies with guns.

Really? The rest of the world does not have child abuse, obesity, or guns?

Woops! Thanks, Lopez.

My bad, Tangy, I obviously mistook you for serious.

Please forgive me.

In my defense, since moving to the east coast, I have met many people who maintain opinions very much akin to the one that you stated sarcastically. They've completely screwed up my radar for determining when someone is merely taking the piss.
