Mayor Rob Ford is becoming quite popular on late night TV.
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart dedicated six and a half minutes to Ford and Canada on last night's show, focusing on the unsubstantiated video allegations made by the Toronto Star and site Gawker last week.
On Friday, the mayor called the allegations ridiculous, that it's the Star going after him again.

Jimmy Kimmel also brought up the topic last night:
On Monday night, the Tonight Show with Jay Leno also did a bit on Ford:
More than 3,000 Ontario hydro customers in central Ontario spent the night without electricity after a powerful storm ripped through the area. At the peak of the outage, Hydro One says there were more than 16,000 people without power.
The utility expects repairs in the affected areas from cottage country north of Toronto east through the Bobcaygeon area to be completed by this evening. A line of severe thunderstorms brought damaging winds, hail and heavy rain to the area Tuesday, snapping branches and flooding some roads.
In Orangeville, a vehicle was blown off a highway and into a ditch but police say it was due to strong winds and not a tornado.
Near Alliston, several people were reportedly stranded in vehicles that were hit by falling hydro poles along County Road 10.
No injuries were reported as six vehicles were struck by the poles.

Oshawa councillors have voted to hire a municipal lawyer to investigate threats the city's auditor general says he has received.
Last week, auditor general Ron Foster released a report titled "Threats to the Independence of the Auditor General," in which he wrote that senior staff members have threatened him and told him to withhold certain information from council. He says he was threatened with firing.
Last night, council voted 5-4 to have lawyer George Rust-D'Eye to look into the report.
The Toronto Star reports that some councillors opposed the choice of lawyer because he has worked for the city before, and they wanted someone who would look more impartial.
Some councillors also called for a full provincial inquiry, while others said that would be too expensives and too long of a process.
New research suggests that teen suicide is contagious.
The study, published in yesterday's Canadian Medical Association Journal, is based on a StatsCan survey of more than 22,000 Canadian teens.
The Toronto Star reports that the numbers show students were more likely to have suicidal thoughts if they went to school with someone who killed themselves.
The lead author of study, Ian Colam from the University of Ottawa, says the research shows that suicides can lead to copycat behaviour among other youth.
The study calls for a strategy to bring more attention to teen suicide.
