Can a mod fix/lock The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
While they are aired by date, the seasons for the show actually start in the previous season. Since there is DVD for reference, the production code is the indicator.
Season 17 started back on Oct 3, 2011. 2011 ended with 17x36 - Matt Damon. 2012 continues season 17 with 17x37 - Charles Barkley on 01/03/2012.
