    Looks like the logo for the Caldari State in the space MMORPG game EVE.

    I saw it tonight on The Daily Show (I only watch Comedy Central for the news).

    Looks like the new Comedy Central will be more in place next week ...

    I'd say that new logo required at least 6-7 tequila shots to create... :eek2:

    I see that they've started using the new logo and type in their programming. Personally I don't care for it. I like the concept, sort of turning comedy on its ear, but yes, it's too similar to a copyright symbol and too plain. The old logo was certainly due for replacement but I just can't buy that this was the best one they were presented with.

    Did ABC just buy this station?? It looks putrid in my opinion.

    It's smaller and less conspicuous. For THAT reason, I'm happier.

    I absolutely agree -- it could have been a lot worse.

    Also happy to see that, on the HD feed, they're still locating the logo bug in the very lower right corner of the HD picture, rather than putting it within the SD area as so many other networks do.

    It reminds me of the old vector-graphics game Star Castle:

    Yeah, they could have followed Sci-Fi's lead and renamed the network to something like "komyDsentrl."

    Reminds me too much of the Comcast logo.

    Yeah, Mrs. Shadow thought that too.

    I am wondering if it's a first step in rebranding themselves as "The C" or something like that.

    We used to have The Comedy Channel... and then "Ha!". One of those (I forget which) was owned by HBO... and ultimately they merged to become the Comedy Central that is with us today.

    Just for reference in case speculation of a name change gets any legs.

    At least CC is keeping their name in the logo ...

    She seems to keep getting closer and closer.

    BTW: I liked the old CC logo and thought it tied in nicely with Jon Stewart's globe. It probably needed an update.
