Does anyone else find it strange that the Daily Show accurately picked Tina Wesson to win Survivor II during their Monday-after-the-Superbowl show?

It was done as a joke- there was a segment with the one blonde female correspondent (forget her name) and she blurts out that:

"Nurse Tina Wesson wins Survivor II"

and then Jon Stewart says something like, "ahh, you know, that was supposed to be a secret. They don't plan on revealing the winner until May."

and she looks real scared and says "Oh! sorry. um, forget I said that."

It was very funny at the time, especially since I didn't think Tina had a chance in heck to win. Did they just guess randomly and get it right?

Does anyone else remember this?

Just another reason why The Daily Show is the most important show, ever!

And remember that The Daily Show's election coverage was called Indecision 2000 from the very beginning.

Maybe the writers are from the future.
