Jon Stewart is returning to ‘The Daily Show’ on Mondays for the next year or more, and will also be Executive Producer of the show. This is wonderful news. From Oliver Darcy at CNN:
The comedian, who during his 16-year run as host of the Comedy Central program established it as an entertainment and cultural force, will return to host the show each week on Mondays starting February 12, Showtime and MTV Entertainment Studios announced Wednesday.
Stewart, who returns as the 2024 presidential election season heats up, will also executive produce the show and work with a rotating line-up of comedians who will helm the program the rest of the week, Tuesdays through Thursdays.
“Stewart is the voice of our generation, and we are honored to have him return to Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show’ to help us all make sense of the insanity and division roiling the country as we enter the election season,” Chris McCarthy, chief executive of Showtime and MTV Entertainment Studios, said in a statement.Oliver Darcy
I was always so disappointed when he left the show ahead of the 2016 Presidential election. I hope he will make up for it this time around.
Comedy is the truth and few are better than Jon Stewart at exposing the hypocrisy that is rampant in our world today.
