Unfortunately, every time I watch this program, I have this nagging feeling that the television is going to freeze any moment, and the irrating message "Buffering..." is going to scroll across the bottom of the screen.

Yes, I have been watching clips of the Daily Show on the web via RealPlayer, and I have been tortured too much by it. :-)
