In a recent profile, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee told Rolling Stone that she, unlike many Daily Show viewers, had never expected to take over Jon Stewart’s role—and that her acceptance of TBS’s Full Frontal offer came in part out of her own assumption that she would be passed over. “It didn’t seem like a reality to…
Jon Stewart’s been up to a lot since leaving The Daily Show. As Samantha Bee says, he’s opened a “massage farm” and she needs his advice on what to do with a tiny adorable horse.

Last night, Jon Stewart stopped by The Daily Show. But it wasn’t to reminisce; it was to castigate Congress for sitting around once again doing dick-all for 9/11 first responders.
Hello, here’s a teaser for Trevor Noah’s upcoming gig hosting The Daily Show. It’s a beautiful slow motion promo soundtracked by Kanye West’s “Power.” The Trevor Noah era is upon us starting on September 28, when he officially inherits the desk of Jon Stewart. “Same chair, different ass,” according to the promo.

On September 12, 2000, Jon Stewart started The Daily Show’s Headlines segment with the following joke: “The GOP accused of using subliminal advertising. Bush says, ‘Why would we advertise underwater?’” After a run of jokes about then-candidate George W. Bush, Stewart chuckles, “He’s making it so easy.”
Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart managed to effectively smack down Mike Huckabee’s “oven door” comment with a few video clips and some theatrical grunts. It’s truly unnecessary to put in any rhetorical effort—Huckabee is just that much of an idiot.
Jon Stewart admitted on The Daily Show that gleeful, wall-to-wall Donald Trump coverage is basically the same thing as frantically jacking it every hour on the hour. But can you blame them?
Somehow, despite it all, Donald Trump continues to cling to his pretense at a serious presidential campaign. And so The Daily Show continues to cover his antics with outright glee. The latest: His fellow Republicans are shocked and appalled that he’d speak badly of John McCain! Wow, it’s almost like Donald Trump is a…

Jon Stewart only has a few weeks remaining in his tenure as host of The Daily Show.

On Monday, Jon Stewart joined America in wondering what the fuck was going on with 37-year-old Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who on Tuesday morning said that she “identified as black.” I identify as wealthy, now where are my coins?!
On Monday night, people in McKinney, Texas took to the streets to protest Corporal Eric Casebolt, a police officer who brandished his gun at a pool party and waved it at some teens while sitting on the back of a black girl. Literally. As a result, he’s been suspended—but not fired. Noted, Texas.
Jon Stewart’s last Daily Show will be August 6, and in the leadup we’re probably going to be subjected to endless takes about how he Shaped America’s Discourse. The Daily Show itself wasted no time mocking that trend, with this touching tribute from John Hodgman, which they promise will be the first in a series.
If you’re like me, you’re saving up all of your tears like cathartic candy for the last airing of The Daily Show this summer. But if you’re like Melissa McCarthy, you’ve made your mourning a sartorial statement. On Wednesday, the Spy actress showed up to her Daily Show interview in a kimono made of Stewart’s mug like…
The American media has been quick to embrace Caitlyn Jenner—and, as Jon Stewart pointed out on last night’s episode of The Daily Show, to suffocate her with the male gaze. Welcome, girl!
This week Jeb Bush forgot that when you’re running for president, even secretly, you must distance yourself from the last guy’s mistakes, even if that guy’s your brother whose name is George and his mistake was invading Iraq. On The Daily Show, Jon Stewart tackled Jeb (pronounced Heb) and his struggles in the best way…
We’re still mourning the loss of Samantha Bee on The Daily Show, but Kristen Schaal is thankfully still around, and she dropped by Tuesday night’s episode to talk about how great it is that “dadbod” is a thing. “Show off how your looks are not what society values most in you!” she said, commanding Jon Stewart to twirl…
Samantha Bee, who has spent the past 12 years charming the idiots of America into revealing their ugly opinions on abortion, gay rights, race, and beyond, has officially left her post as correspondent on The Daily Show.
