(Newser) – Glenn Beck got skewered for his Eric Massa interview by both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert last night. “Yes, Glenn Beck said this interview might change the course of the nation. He never specified which direction,” Stewart said. But, he added, “the night wasn’t a total loss,” showing a clip of Beck apologizing for wasting America’s time. "Every show, he can now end with, ‘I think I’ve wasted an hour of your time, and I apologize for that, see you tomorrow.’”

Colbert, however, still believes that “this is a made-up scandal by the White House to destroy Massa for opposing this health care plan! Because even if he groped some male staffers, as he said, it was not sexual.” Colbert then demonstrated “non-sexual groping” on his own male staffer. In a separate segment, Colbert comforted Beck: “You only wasted 44 minutes. Your commercials were great,” especially the one for the “Survival Seed Bank.” Watch all the clips in the gallery.
