I don't know about you, but I was really relieved Jon Benjamin Has A Van wasn't another Daily Show. Not that there would be anything wrong with that, but the show's promos seemed to indicate that it had the makings of yet another faux news show. Sure, the potential is always there for another Colbert Report, but I was really into the looser, sketch-oriented feel of Benjamin's new project: less news-y, more goofy. Unfortunately, it's that same looseness that eventually leads the pilot episodes into trouble, as it seems like Benjamin and his writers are still working out exactly what kind of hybrid his show should be.
