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, Trevor Noah. 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 »

Quotes

Contributor, 'Back in Black': War is all the rage these days, so let me lay another one on you - TIVO vs. Advertisers. With more and more Americans zapping commercials, advertisers are going guerilla on our asses. Taking it to new and better heights. For example, five-foot tall bulimic men. The Churchill Downs recently OK'd the jockeys to wear advertisements on their shorts.

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!
