Storyline

Providing comedy/news in the tradition of TV Nation and SNL's Weekend Update, Comedy Central's Daily Show reports on the foibles and of the real world with a satirical edge. In addition to news stories, the Daily Show also has celebrities (and semi-celebrities) on for interviews with the host, Jon Stewart. Lampooning everything from televangelists to Charlton Heston ("I did not play a homo in Ben-Hur"), and shamelessly assigning faux-news epithets ("Newt Gingrich: Giant Toddler") Kilborn, Winstead, and the crew actually manage to report some real news from time to time.

Trivia

Beginning in 2004, every couple of weeks or so, before a commercial break, Jon Stewart would introduce a "new, exciting, already canceled spin-off" of the Daily Show, followed by "clips" from "The Colbert Réport" with Stephen Colbert adding "It's French, bitch!". The brief segments consisted of Colbert ranting about news stories and yelling at politicians in fake interviews using archive footage. These segments became so popular that "The Colbert Report" did actually become a spin-off, The Colbert Report (2005), in 2005. See more »

more accurate than any other news show
25 July 2004 | by (Potomac, Maryland) – See all my reviews

Jon Stewart's timing and delivery is incredibly good. The writing is fantastic. Of course, with material provided fresh daily by the US Congress and Administration, writing humor probably isn't all that challenging. It must be frustrating that they don't have enough time to cover more "news" in each half-hour segment.

I'd give anything to buy a "Best of the Daily Show" on DVD (especially the one with "the Congress condemning sex with a turtle" episode).
