Show Summary

Forget the 24 hour biased left wing news media, the best fake news show in the world will provide you with all the news you can handle. The Daily Show is a comedic view of recent news headlines and political figures through a series of satirical monologues by Jon Stewart along with segments by "correspondents" and finally interviews with guest celebrities and political figures. Craig Kilborn (SportsCenter) was the original host until the fourth season when Jon Stewart (The Jon Stewart Show) came in to take over after Kilborn left for CBS. The Daily Show has won multiple Emmy's and other prestigious awards such as the Peabody Award. It airs Mondays-Thursdays at 11pm ET on Comedy Central. It re-airs the following day at 1am ET, 10am ET, 2pm ET, and 8pm ET on Comedy Central.

  • Great show!

    The best!
  • Florida - Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville

    10
    Yes, I live in Florida. The state Jon loves to make fun of. Chances are he either has a house here or has never visited to know why so many people love this state. I was born and raised in Florida and have never lived anywhere else. There are lots of reasons for that.



    In any case, there is now a very good reason to cheer Florida. In particular, the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. There has been a break through for a breast cancer vaccine thanks to our own Donna Deegan (3 time breast cancer survivor) and the Dr. at Mayo. Funds raised from a race Donna started years ago have gone towards research and it seems that it is paying off. The news first was reported on our local station where Donna used to be a news anchor and then on The Today Show: 56929697#56929697



    So, with all the silly negatives you find about Florida, at least we are making strides in the medical field to help women with breast cancer. I don't know anyone else that can say that! Quite an important break through.



    I know Jon is a comedian and needs material for his show, but enough is enough. Florida is a great state but we prefer people stay away. We are overcrowded with northerners that come down to our beautiful state to get away from the winters. Yeah, we like the money that tourism brings, but stop criticizing the very place everyone loves to visit, enjoys having a 2nd home, and retires to.

  • Politics with a hint of humor

    10
    But in this case, a lot. I really love Jon's comedic take on certain hilarious events which the conservatives of either side either smear or hide. Politics is in fact hilarious, Jon just makes it even more hilarious to the point where we "actually understand Overall, I really love this show and hope to see more!
  • Dennis Miller pre-9/11

    1.0
    Before 9/11, Dennis Miller was a superior smart-ass who thought he was a super-genius, sneering at anyone to the right of Karl Marx.

    John Stewart is a similar pseudo-intellectual, class-baiting with similarly pretentious rambling that makes him appear intelligent to those who aren't. and using Marxist rhetoric to insult ring-wing Republicans. But at least Miller learned on 9/11 that this type of thinking was to blame for American vulnerability-- though he never apologized for it, at least he stopped.



    Stewart, not so much.... fools never learn.

  • So I needed a current event for history class....

    8.0
    this is what got me an A for every week! Before, I never really found politics or current events articles or shows very interesting because they seemed so monotone and boring. It's not that I didn't CARE, it's just that the way it was always presented to me just made it sound uninteresting. It was all "suits and no smiles". Then one late night while procrastinating, I stumble upon this! I think it's a really funny show and a good way to relate current events in a way that doesn't make people feel bored. Or depressed. I like it! ~Lutarimoreless
  • DO YOU RECOGNIZE HIM?

    The Daily Show Has Named Jon Stewart's Replacement

    No one can replace Jon Stewart in our hearts, but Comedy Central is ready to try replacing him as the host of The Daily Show.
