The Daily Show With Jon Stewart

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart


One anchor, five correspondents, zero credibility.

If you're tired of the stodginess of the evening newscasts, if you can't bear to sit through the spinmeisters and shills on the 24-hour cable news networks, don't miss The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, a nightly half-hour series unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy. The Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Daily Show takes a reality-based look at news, trends, pop culture, current events, politics, sports and entertainment with an alternative point of view. In each show anchorman Jon Stewart and a team of correspondents, including Robert Corddry, Ed Helms and Samantha Bee and Lewis Black, comment on the day's stories, employing actual news footage, taped field pieces, in-studio guests and on-the-spot coverage of important news events. Stephen Colbert, a former Daily Show correspondent, now has his own spinoff sister show to The Daily Show called The Colbert Report.

The Daily Show currently airs on Comedy Central. The Daily Show (currently The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, also known as TDS to fans and staffers) is a half-hour satirical news program produced by and run on the Comedy Central cable television network in the United States. The show premiered on Monday, July 22, 1996, and was hosted by Craig Kilborn, who acted as news anchor. In 1999, Kilborn left the show and was replaced by Jon Stewart. Providing news-related comedy in the tradition of Michael Moore's TV Nation, Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" segment, HBO's Not Necessarily the News, and the long-running Canadian series This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The Daily Show reports on the foibles and hypocrisy of the real world with a satirical edge. The show has also developed a reputation as one of the sharpest political commentary shows on American TV.
