This program isn't getting the attention it deserves
Comic gold. If you miss the sarcastic quick wit of the Colbert Report, this'll fill the void

The Only Other Reason to Sub to Paramount Plus
Most folks subscribe to Paramount Plus for one month every year to catch the season of Trek. But then you're left with 29 days of conventional television you wouldn't watch if it were free. Thus, thank goodness for Tooning Out The News - a brilliantly written merciless parody of an even more meaningless and vapid form of TV - cable news. The comedy here is insightful and utterly savage. It's boundary-free; nothing is off-limits for the writers of this series.

Surprisingly a lot better than I thought it would be
I did not think I was going to like this show as much as I do. It can get downright savage sometimes and I have to rewind it like hold up...Did they just say what I think they said? Yes, yes they said exactly what I thought they said
😂😂😂
What makes a lot of the jokes even funnier is that they're also true. I'm surprised CBS even allows some of the jokes. While some of it can be a little overboard the majority of it is pretty funny. I actually signed up for a Paramount Plus subscription after my free trial was over just for this show. Well worth the $5 a month

Extremely funny
Season 2 episode 21's introduction with Matt Gaetz and Tucker Carlson is worth it's weight in comedy gold.

This show here is "FIX" worthy
I came across this show mid~pandemic and instantly loved the satirical gold that it employs. Binged out the missed shows up to the date I found it and HAVE NOT missed a HIT since. Colbert and his writing staff are superb ... 5TAR General SALUTE!
