Is The Opposition With Jordan Klepper Lampooning Alex Jones? Watch Teaser

15 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Jordan Klepper launches into full-on conspiracy theorist mode in the first promo for Comedy Central’s The Opposition (premiering Monday, Sept. 25 at 11:30/10:30c).

RelatedBroad City Gets New, Later Season 4 Premiere Date at Comedy Central

The less-than-a-minute tease features the Daily Show correspondent in front of a giant screen, on a mission to impeach Donald Trump Hillary Clinton and convince viewers that the country of China isn’t even real. This behavior falls right in line with the basic cabler’s official logline, which promises a late-night series that satirizes the “hyperbolic, conspiracy-laden noise machine that is the alternative-media landscape. »

18 August 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | ET Canada | See recent ET Canada news »

Jon Stewart paid a surprise visit to Dave Chappelle’s standup performance at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall on Thursday, and the former host of “The Daily Show” had a lot to say about President Trump’s response to the Charlottesville attack. According to a series of tweets from New York Times culture reporter Sohan Deb, Chappelle was […] »

Jon Stewart Takes Aim at Donald Trump and White Supremacists During Surprise Stand-Up Appearance With Dave Chappelle

18 August 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jon Stewart picked a hell of a time to end his tenure as host of “The Daily Show.” Several others have stepped up to fill the void left by his absence — that two of them, Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee, first came to attention on his show is no coincidence — but no one does it quite like Stewart did.

He reminded everyone in attendance at Dave Chappelle’s show at Radio City Music Hall of that just last night, chiming in on Charlottesville and Donald Trump.

Like just about everyone besides Trump himself, Stewart was aghast at the notion that “many sides” were to blame for last weekend’s violence. “To the presence of two sides? Motherfucker? There are two sides? Motherfucker? Two sides? Two sides!” he exclaimed. “And I believe they are called the Allied powers and the Axis powers. »

‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’: Amber Ruffin Takes on Charlottesville in Terrific “Safe Space” Video

16 August 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When Jon Stewart left The Daily Show, there was a massive void on television for a specific kind of political commentary—one that was humorous, insightful, but also cathartically genuine. Seth Meyers quickly ramped up the political angle of Late Night with Seth Meyers in that wake, and the show has now become a nightly must-watch for its incisive, funny, and incredibly fast commentary. Through segments like “A Closer Look,” Meyers and his team have found great ways to expound on recent pieces of news that are hilarious but also pointed and, like Stewart's Daily Show, cathartic.

Samantha Bee, the new heroine of American political satire

13 August 2017 1:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The graduate of Jon Stewart’s Daily Show now skewers the Us president every week in her own Emmy-nominated TV satire, Full Frontal

Samantha Bee, a 47-year-old Canadian-born dual-citizen of Canada and the Us, has been called the “comedian of the resistance” in the Donald Trump era. It is not a position she applied for, nor one she is especially happy to have assumed. When her weekly topical show, Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, first aired on the Us cable channel TBS in February 2016, in the process making her the first woman to host a late-night political satire, she imagined she would be overseeing the run-in to a Hillary Clinton presidency. Then, from her perspective, the unthinkable happened.

Trump’s victory has forced all the late-night comedy shows to take stock, but it is Bee, formerly a correspondent on The Daily Show for a record 12 years, who seems to have adapted best. »

Stephen Colbert Weighs In on the New York vs. Chicago Pizza Debate

9 August 2017 2:16 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Stephen Colbert has a few words about Chicago-style pizza.

On Tuesday night, the Late Show host answered questions over a plate of wings 110 times hotter than a jalapeño with guest Sean Evans, host of First We Feast’s popular Hot Ones Challenge.

Colbert, who first performed professionally as an understudy for Steve Carell at Second City Chicago, has spent a fair share of time around Chicago pizza. The late-night comedian described the deep dish as “a baby pool filled with sauce and cheese.” He added: “when I go to Giordano’s or Lou Malnati’s I want to bring a »

As political satirists in the United States struggle to come to grips with a presidency that holds dissent in contempt whilst providing a deluge of material begging to be exploited, Tickling Giants, a new and remarkably timely documentary out on Netflix chronicles the rise of Bassem Youssef — Egypt's foremost political satirist, known to many as the Jon Stewart of the Arab world. »

Jessica Williams: Why She Quit ‘The Daily Show’ and Bet Her Career On ‘The Incredible Jessica James’

28 July 2017 9:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

When long-time “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart announced his intention to leave his popular Comedy Central program in February 2015, Jessica Williams received plenty of buzz as a potential replacement that could lead the show into the next era of smart, amusing reporting. Williams, however, had different ideas.

Just weeks earlier, the budding actress and comedian had been bouncing around the Sundance Film Festival, happily hawking her first big movie role in James Strouse’s “People Places Things.” That happiness was definitely earned, because Williams’ work in the film — as a super-smart art student who plays matchmaker for her recently divorced teacher (Jemaine Clement) and her single mother (Regina Hall) — proved that her comedic chops could translate to an entirely new medium.

Williams, already a star on the rise, suddenly had a brand new career to pursue, »

HBO Boss Discusses Jon Stewart's Cancelled Series Plans

27 July 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Jon Stewart's animated HBO series was originally supposed to premiere in the fall of 2016. They reportedly had trouble with the timing of it all. Because they wanted it to be topical and in-the-moment, yet they had to allow time for animation, it ultimately proved too challenging, and the project was cancelled as of May of this year. Now, HBO programming president, Casey Bloys, is discussing the roadblocks which ultimately led Stewart and HBO to cancel the project, which was going to be an "Onion-like" animated parody of a cable news network.

In the time since he left The Daily Show, Jon Stewart has been transitioning into his “mountain man who chops wood and tends to sheep all day” phase, spending more time doing the things he cares about and less being the star of the show, so to speak. His TV appearances don't go beyond fun cameos it seems he’s ready to step back into the spotlight in a big way with a... Read More »

HBO Boss On Jon Stewart’s Scrapped Animated Series & Possible Late-Night Return

26 July 2017 7:33 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

After a lengthy R&D period, HBO and Jon Stewart in May pulled the plug on his planned topical digital animated series, which had been greenlighted by the previous HBO regime. "We all thought the project had great potential, but there were technical issues in terms of production and distribution that proved too difficult given the quick turnaround and topical nature of the material,” the two parties said at the time in a joint statement.

TCA Roundup: HBO Talks ‘Confederate’ Controversy, ‘True Detective’ Season Three and More

26 July 2017 6:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Television Critics Assocation press tour arrived in Beverly Hills July 25 and will continue through August 9. Each day, Variety will publish a roundup of the most essential news items to come out of the day’s panels.

In today’s roundup, Andrew Sodroski and Greg Yaitanes discussed the humanity in Discovery Channel’s “Manhunt: Unabomber” series, Mahershala Ali was confirmed to star in “True Detective” season three, and HBO Original Programming chief Casey Bloys admitted the press release surrounding David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’s “Confederate” project was misguided.

Sodroski and Yaitanes, producers of the six-part Unabomber limited series, said they wanted to bring light to certain aspects of a well-known criminal case like FX did with “The People Vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” Paul Bettany stars as bomber Ted Kaczynski and Mark Duplass plays his older brother, David, who turned his brother in after recognizing his writing style in the Unabomber’s manifesto published »

Jon Stewart to Return to Stand-Up for HBO Specials

26 July 2017 5:35 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jon Stewart will be performing his first broadcast stand-up specials in more than 20 years. As The Hollywood Reporter notes, the two planned comedy specials will air on HBO. His last special, which also aired on HBO, was 1996's Jon Stewart: Unleavened.

Of course, Stewart has been pretty busy in the time between stand-up specials, having hosted The Daily Show for 16 years. Following his departure in 2015, he signed a four-year production deal with HBO. The dates and locations for the new specials have not yet been revealed.
