The Daily Show Background

John Stewart Rejoins The Show For Monday Broadcasts

Stewart had a previous 16-year run as host of the Comedy Central program and established it as an entertainment and cultural force. He returns to the show in February 2024 to host the show each week on Mondays only.

Rotating Line-Up Of Comedians Tue-Thu Shows

A Rotating line-up of comedians will continue to host the show Tuesdays through Thursdays. John Stewart will be credited as executive producer for those shows.

The Warm Up Comedian

Before the taping starts at the Daily Show, the warm-up comic comes out and pokes fun at the audience with quick and funny insults that are not extremely offensive. Afterwards, the host comes out for a quick 10 minute Q&A with audience so they learn more about them.

Audience members witness the evolution of one of the up-and-coming young bright comedic stars in the Comedy Central galaxy.

Former Studio of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Daily Show With Trevor Noah

The current version of the show is located in the same studio as Stewart’s and Noah's version of the show, albeit with a $1 million dollar refit that switched around the seating position and improved the dated set.

Studio audiences get a great night of free entertainment with a new and different approach to the lighter side of political news and current events that made The Daily Show a beloved piece of American entertainment since 1996.

Second Longest Running Show On The Network

The show has been on television since January 1996, which gives it the honor of being the second-longest running show on the network. Between the years 1999 to 2015, the show was hosted by Jon Stewart, who significantly increased the standing of the show due to his fanatical following.

Each Host Change Delivers A New Sentiment

In 1999, when Jon Stewart replaced Kilborn, he altered the entire sentiment of the show and it became more political a hilarious fake news vibe.. With Trevor Noah the show became more comedic.

How To Contact The Daily Show:

The Daily Show makes it especially hard for viewers to contact them.

A DM on The Daily Show Twitter Feed does sometimes actually work, although they usually take a week or so to respond.

Other contact methods include old phone numbers (that no one seems to answer) and email addresses (that often go unread) demonstrate just how broken Comedy Central really is. Its owner Viacom is not much better and this is true for all its cable TV productions including MTV, BET. VH1 and TV Land.
