Another puzzle

The other day I wrote about a puzzle I created for NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday. Today I have another puzzle for you.

I keep up on my favorite TV shows with a TiVo digital video recorder. Among TiVo's many features is a Program Details section providing information about every show.

I was recently reading about an episode of NBC's The Office. After the credits, TiVo offered a list of similar programming that fans of The Office might enjoy (see below).

Glancing down the list, I noticed something unusual, in addition to the fact that TiVo included The Office among programs that are similar to The Office.

Today's puzzle is, which of the following does not belong? I am not making this up:

Similar Programs
  • The Office
  • 30 Rock
  • My Name Is Earl
  • Office Space
  • Seinfeld
  • Saturday Night Live
  • The Simpsons
  • Scrubs
  • The Daily Show With Jon Stewart
  • Old School
  • Family Guy
  • The 40-Year-Old Virgin
  • Arrested Development
  • The Colbert Report
  • Napoleon Dynamite
  • Little Miss Sunshine
  • Swingers
  • South Park
  • Chappelle's Show
  • Waiting for Guffman
  • Mega-Carrier: The Construction of the USS George H.W. Bush
  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Didn't you know that the construction of the USS George H.W. Bush had a bunch of hilarious pratfalls?

So did the construction of the George W. Bush presidency.

Gosh, I'm guessing it's the Daily Show With Jon Stewart, a news show. Yeah, Mega Carrier was an attempt to trick us, but naming a carrier after that clown is a hoot.

And we all know that Jon Stewart is now polled to be America's most trusted newsman.
