Daily Show's Jones, Bee land CBS sitcom

Comedy Central's The Daily Show has come a long way since Craig Kilborn left the talk show's desk. Studies have claimed that most young people in the country get their news from the "fake news" show than any other source on television, and host Jon Stewart has become one of the more influential political figures in mainstream media since taking over in 1999.

Jon Stewart signs two-year extension with Comedy Central keeping the talk-show host on Daily Show 'til 2010.

Stewart keepin' it Daily

With Stephen Colbert's mock/real declaration of his running for the presidency, fans were left to ponder, if only for a second, a life without Colbert. Thankfully they won't have to do the same with the man who put Colbert on the map.

Comedy Central today announced that Jon Stewart, the host of the wildly popular The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, has signed a two-year contract extension with the network. The deal puts Stewart in the Daily Show's host chair through 2010. His contract would have ended next year.

"I love doing this show," Stewart said in a statement. "I feel like I work with and for the best in the business. I look forward to using this extension to having great fun at President Colbert's expense."

The deal is also likely a ploy on Comedy Central's part to keep Stewart content under the ...

The Daily Show: An inside look

NEW YORK CITY--Four years and loads of casualties on, John Stewart and his cohorts at The Daily Show somehow have still managed to make the war in Iraq outrageously funny.

So it's no surprise to find hundreds of people lining up outside the show's studio in midtown Manhattan in the middle of a Thursday afternoon. What is surprising is that they start doing so before 2:30 p.m., nearly four hours before Stewart will appear on the set to exchange banter with the crowd and start the show.

With few exceptions, the line is full of young, college-aged white folks, many sporting ironic and/or political T-shirts. Despite no movement in the line or any indication that anything will happen anytime soon, the time seems to fly by--this is New York City.

New study says Comedy Central fake news show contains just as much truth as real news.
Oct 06, 2006
Daily Show equals real news

A study released Wednesday by an Indiana University professor states that when broken down, The Daily Show coverage of the 2004 presidential election contained as much actual news as a regular broadcast news show. The study compared The Daily Show to ABC Evening News, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News.

For the study, professor of telecommunications Julia Fox and grad students Glory Koloen and Volkan Sahin defined substantive news as "coverage that referred to political issues and candidate qualifications in the 2004 election." Using that barometer, Daily Show and "real" news had equal amounts of substantive news.

While the Daily Show broke up the actual news with comedy, the mainstream news broke up the actual news with stories including polls, political ads, and other filler.

Fox says her previous studies had led her to the idea.

"My past research had ...

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.moreless
