The first 15 minutes of “The Daily Show with on Stewart” were devoted to a satire on Glenn Beck, right down to the Fox host’s logo. It was extra long for a “Daily Show” segment — perhaps too long — but what seems to have triggered it was Beck’s attack on churches with social justice programs. Next up: A Beck guest shot on Stewart’s show? You can almost write the script.
