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

At the end of each show, a short clip from the broadcast, usually offbeat and slightly bizarre out of context, is replayed as a "Moment of Zen". The first "Moment of Zen" was file footage of a yak giving birth. In the past few years, "Moment of Zen" clips have been more focused on soundbites from politicians and media figures. See more »

Quotes

Jon Stewart: We're not like a lot of your news organizations, with their immediacy. We're a 24-hour news channel, if you consider it over two months and add up all the half-hours.

Jon Stewart vs Kilby
8 January 2003 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Ok, I'll be the first to say: When Craig Kilborn left the show, i thought it was going to suck. Boy was I wrong.

This is the one show on television that i make an effort to watch. Amidst a wasteland of stupidity, this is the last bastion of entertaining intelligence. Since the major television networks have turned into crap factories: turning out one crappy reality show after another, it's comforting to find a place in The Daily Show that makes fun of those people.

Jon Stewart is one of the funniest (not to mention brightest) people out there. Whenever I get bored, i watch old clips of him interviewing the Spice Girls or the one about Executing the Retarded. Somebody give this man a raise (no--that was not a short joke); he has earned it.

Jon is the man!
