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

Jon Stewart's interview with CNBC personality Jim Cramer was considered to be a journalistic triumph for Stewart. A few months later, a TIME.com poll posed the question, "Now that Walter Cronkite has passed on, who is America's most trusted newscaster?" Stewart won with 44% in a four-way race with Brian Williams, Katie Couric and Charles Gibson. See more »

Rob Corddry: The mood here at Kerry's headquarters is one of absolute celebration, Jon, elation.
Jon Stewart: Unbelievable! Even 24 hours later, spirits are still high at the Kerry camp.
Rob Corddry: There's a *lot* of things still high at the Kerry camp, Jon! Spirits would be one of them, most of the junior campaign staff would be the other!

more accurate than any other news show
25 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Jon Stewart's timing and delivery is incredibly good. The writing is fantastic. Of course, with material provided fresh daily by the US Congress and Administration, writing humor probably isn't all that challenging. It must be frustrating that they don't have enough time to cover more "news" in each half-hour segment.

I'd give anything to buy a "Best of the Daily Show" on DVD (especially the one with "the Congress condemning sex with a turtle" episode).
