Current format

The Daily Show's format has remained relatively stable throughout the years. Each episode opens with a deep or low voice stating the date and the introduction, "From Comedy Central's World News Headquarters in New York, this is The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." This used to be followed by the statement "The most important television program...ever," but this line was eliminated from the introduction on September 20, 2001, the show's first episode following the September 11, 2001 attacks. The show was also previously credited in the introduction, as a parody of ABC News' slogan, as the place "where more Americans get their news … than any other nationality."[1] is the 263rd day of the year (264th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The show begins with the host's monologue of news headlines. This is often followed by "on location" reports from one of its "senior" specialists in the subject at hand. The correspondents' stated areas of expertise vary depending on the news story that is being discussed, and can range from relatively general (such as "Senior Political Analyst") to absurdly specific (such as "Senior Child Molestation Expert" or "Senior Subterranean Structure Analyst"). These correspondents are said to be on location, but are taped live in the same studio in front of a greenscreen, which is filled in with an appropriate location backdrop. This is occasionally made the subject of jokes; for example, by having correspondents report from unlikely locations such as a press base on Mars. In another instance, this was parodied when two correspondents filed consecutive "live reports" from Washington, one against a backdrop of the city during daytime and the other in front of the city at night. The correspondents typically present absurd or humorously exaggerated takes on current events against Stewart's straight man. A monologue, pronounced monolog, is a speech made by one person speaking his or her thoughts aloud or directly addressing a reader, audience, or character. ... The bluescreen setup. ...

A few reports have been filmed on location; for example, Jason Jones was actually in Denmark for a March 28, 2006 report, which he proved by shoving the person behind him (an uncredited passerby).

The show formerly split the news into many segments known as "Headlines," "Other News," and "This Just In," though these titles were dropped sometime around 2003. Stewart and company rely on a technique of intercutting footage with commentary, in which they stop the action at a telling moment so as to leave political clichés, dud imagery, or self-contradictory statements hanging in the air, to which the host or correspondent then registers skeptical reserve or pained dismay.

Following the regular news portion are correspondent pieces and interviews, the order of which varies from episode to episode. Correspondent pieces feature a rotating supporting cast who sometimes break out as comedy stars, and involve the show's members actually traveling to a different location to make a report or interview people important to the story. Topics have varied widely, ranging from the invention of hufu, a tofu-based human flesh substitute, to a piece highlighting the lack of Asian men in pornography. Local media have reported on visits from Daily Show correspondents.[2] Hufu is a supposed tofu-based product that is meant to resemble, as realistically as possible, the taste and texture of human flesh. ... Porn redirects here. ...


Some segments recur periodically, such as "Back in Black" with Lewis Black, "This Week in God," "Trendspotting" with Demetri Martin, "Are You Prepared?!?," "Wilmore-Oliver Investigates," and "You Don't Know Dick" (a segment centered on Vice President Dick Cheney). Since the early days of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, a common part of the show has been "Mess O' Potamia," focusing on the troubles in the Middle East, especially Iraq. A newer theme, called "[email protected]#k to the White House," covered the 2008 presidential race in 2007, however since the primaries began, the show has defaulted to its traditional Indecision 2008 moniker.

In the show's third act, an interview is conducted by the host with one guest. Guests come from a wide range of cultural sources: movie and television celebrities, authors and politicians (current and retired). A light tone is generally established by the host, but if the topic demands serious consideration, the interview may veer from comedy for the few minutes that it lasts. The same politicians that are joked about in monologues will generally be treated with respect if they show up to be interviewed.


In a closing segment sometimes referred to as the "toss," host Jon Stewart checks in with "our good friend, Stephen Colbert at The Colbert Report." This check-in was done daily in an initial period of the Colbert Report but in 2007 was cut back to twice per week. After a brief exchange, there is a segue to the closing credits in the form of "Your Moment of Zen", a surreal piece of video footage that has been part of the show's wrap-up since the series began in 1996.

Studio

The outside of the current Daily Show studio

The program features Stewart sitting at his desk on an elevated island stage in a "theatre in the round" type studio. On July 11, 2005, the show moved its "World News Headquarters" to New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood at 733 11th Avenue, between 51st and 52nd Streets. The set changed along with the move, gaining a sleeker, more formal look, including a backdrop of three large projection screens which at first was not well-received by many fans of the show. The set change immediately spawned a backlash among fans and served as impetus for a campaign to "Bring Back the Couch" as it was not a part of the new set. The campaign was subsequently mentioned on the show by Stewart and supported by Daily Show contributor Bob Wiltfong. The couch was eventually made the prize in a Daily Show sweepstakes in which the winner got the couch, round-trip tickets to New York, tickets to the show and a small sum of money. Their old studio is now used for The Colbert Report, a spin-off of the Daily Show starring former correspondent Stephen Colbert.

On April 9, 2007 the studio was changed again, the projection screens were revamped (one large screen behind Stewart, while the one behind the interview subject remained the same), a large, global map with certain points glowing directly behind Stewart, a more open studio floor, and a J-shaped desk (with the show's logo on the front) with a globe serving as a de facto leg on one end. The intro was changed as well; the flag graphic, and the display names, dates, and logos were all streamlined.

History

With Craig Kilborn (1996–1998)

The Daily Show was created by Lizz Winstead and Madeline Smithberg. Searching for a weeknight staple to replace Politically Incorrect (a Comedy Central program that moved to ABC), Comedy Central premiered The Daily Show in the summer of 1996. A fake news program originally hosted by Craig Kilborn, the show featured a humorous take on contemporary news events. Aimed to parody conventional newscasts, the show featured a comedic monologue of the day's headlines, mockumentary styled on-location reports, in-studio segments, guest commentary, and debates. The show also took advantage of its visual medium, littering episodes with small touches like in-screen images labeled with their own gags, and presenting absurd bits of trivia coming back and going into commercials. Such segments included: "This Day in Hasselhoff History", "Last Weekend's Top-Grossing Films, Converted into Lira", and "Final Jeopardy!" in which Winstead's mother, Ginny, would ask and answer the final question of that day's Jeopardy!. (Due to threatened legal action by the producers of Jeopardy!, this was replaced with various trivia questions and the name of the segment was changed to "Trivial Compromise".) Originally the show was done without a studio audience, and would just prompt the laughs of its own off-camera staff members. A studio audience was incorporated into the show for its second season, and has remained since. Lizz Winstead (born August 5, 1961) is a Minnesota-born comedian who was co-creator of The Daily Show along with Madeleine Smithberg, and served as head writer. ...

Jeopardy redirects here. ...


Under Winstead and Kilborn the show developed a somewhat relaxed atmosphere. Kilborn often made personal asides to the audience, even stepping out from behind the desk to dance, especially on Thursdays, as a celebration of the end of the week. In each show Kilborn would conduct celebrity interviews that would end with a segment called "Five Questions." With the exception of the first question (which was always geography related) the questions were not bound by any pattern, and did not necessarily pertain to the guests, sometimes just aiming for random trivia or humor. The routine was derived from a pick-up line of Kilborn's invention, which Winstead thought would make good material for the show. The Daily Show includes many recurring segments, recurring gags, and other miscellany, a partial catalog of which is presented here. ... A pick-up line is intended to be short and easy method of picking up (i. ...


Regular correspondents included Brian Unger, Beth Littleford, and A. Whitney Brown. Stephen Colbert joined the cast a year after it premiered and was referred to as "The New Guy" for the remainder of Kilborn's three year tenure. Lizz Winstead herself also acted as a contributor as well as a writer in a weekly spot called "He Said, Winstead" in which she and Kilborn would ad lib a point-counterpoint style argument.

Beth Littleford (born 17 July 1968 in Nashville, Tennessee) is a comedienne and television personality best known for her work on The Daily Show from 1996-2000. ... A(lan) Whitney Brown (b. ...


Each show was capped off with a segment called "Your Moment of Zen" that showed random video clips of humorous and sometimes morbid interest such as a snake charmer pulling a snake out of his throat via his nostril. A controversy arose due to one clip in which Asian men and women were shown throwing live baby chicks at alligators as feed. Winstead reacted to complaints by creating a similar video in which she threw fake chicks into a pond from a row boat. The Daily Show includes many recurring segments, recurring gags, and other miscellany, a partial catalog of which is presented here. ... Kill Bill is the fourth feature film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino released in two parts: Volume 1 & Volume 2. ...


Tensions often flared behind the scenes between Kilborn and female cast, leading Beth Littleford (a once-crew-leading member of the Daily Show) to comment later that Kilborn was as "dumb as a post". In a 1997 Esquire magazine interview, Kilborn made sexually explicit comments about his female coworkers. This led to a two week suspension without pay. Co-creator Winstead quit one month later.

In 1998 Kilborn left The Daily Show in order to replace Tom Snyder on CBS's The Late Late Show. He was able to take the interview segment "Five Questions" and for a brief period, his "Moment for Us" segment with him to the new show, disallowing any new TDS hosts from using it in their interviews. Correspondents Brian Unger and A. Whitney Brown left the show shortly before him. Unger returned for a single show in which he was supposedly killed on assignment by an incoming cruise missile.

Kilborn's last new show was aired on December 17, 1998. Reruns were shown until Jon Stewart's debut 4 weeks later.

Shift in content

Comedian Jon Stewart took over as host on Monday, January 11, 1999. Stewart had previously hosted two shows on MTV (You Wrote It, You Watch It and an eponymous talk show), as well as a syndicated late-night talk show, and had been cast in films and television. His first guest was Spin City's Michael J. Fox, who quipped, "I've been on The Daily Show more than you have!" is the 11th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Fox as Mike Flaherty, the Deputy Mayor of New York. ... For other persons named Michael Fox, see Michael Fox (disambiguation). ...


In taking over hosting from Kilborn, Stewart retained much of the same staff and on-air talent, allowing many pieces to transition without much trouble, while other features like "God Stuff", with John Bloom presenting an assortment of actual clips from various televangelists, and "Backfire", an in-studio debate between Brian Unger and A. Whitney Brown, evolved into the similar pieces of Stephen Colbert's "This Week in God" and Colbert and Steve Carell's "Even Stephven". Since the change, a number of new features have been, and continue to be, developed as well. The ending segment "Your Moment of Zen" developed from a random selection of humorous videos to often being recaps or extended versions of news clips shown earlier in the show (though sometimes are completely unrelated to any previous segment). The show's theme music, "Dog on Fire" by Bob Mould, was re-recorded by They Might Be Giants.

Unlike Kilborn, whose dialogue and character were written entirely by others, Stewart served not only as host but also as a writer and co-executive producer of the series. His influence is noted for heading a significant shift in the way the show handled news. Stewart had a markedly different style, bringing a sharper political focus to the humor than the show previously exhibited. This satirical edge, combined with the show's 2000 election coverage, presciently dubbed "Indecision 2000", helped to catapult Stewart and The Daily Show to new levels of popularity and critical respect. With Stewart on board, the show has won ten Emmy Awards and two Peabody Awards, and its ratings more than doubled according to a 2003 Associated Press article.[3] By 2004, the show had emerged into a pop culture hit and one of the most popular programs on cable television. The United States presidential election of 2000 was a contest between the Democratic candidate Al Gore versus the Republican candidate of George W. Bush. ... Cable TV redirects here. ...


Writers' strike

Due to the writers' strike, the show went on hiatus on November 5, 2007, meaning that it was not able to cover much of the lead-up to the 2008 Presidential Election Primary season. The show returned on January 7, 2008, despite the continuing strike. The show continued to honor the strike, with neither the show's writers nor Stewart performing their normal writing duties. To acknowledge this fact, the show was referred to as A Daily Show with Jon Stewart rather than The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, until the end of the strike.[4] Stewart largely ad-libbed the show around preplanned topics while the show was aired without writers.[5] As a member of the Writers Guild of America, Stewart was barred from writing any material for the show himself which his writers would ordinarily write.[6] With the Writer's Guild of America ending their strike, Stewart acknowledged on the February 11 episode of A Daily Show that, "Tomorrow (February 12, 2008) will be the last A Daily Show," further explaining that the big news over the weekend of February 8-10 was that, "The writers will be coming back Wednesday!" On Wednesday, February 13, 2008, the show began with the "A Daily Show" title, but was corrected to the show's proper name after about a minute of joking about having a script and teleprompters again.

As described in an October 2006 cover story in Rolling Stone, "Stewart's show has become the hot destination for anyone who wants to sell books or seem hip, from presidential candidates to military dictators. Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf arrived at the Daily Show studio with bomb-sniffing dogs and a bulletproof facade for the anchor desk."[7] Musharraf and Morales to date have been the only sitting heads of state to appear on The Daily Show. During his interview with Secretary of Education, Margaret Spellings, Stewart quipped that she was apparently the only sitting member of the Bush administration who was "not allergic to" him, referring to the fact that until Spellings' interview, prominent members of the Bush Administration had only come to the show after they had resigned or retired. During an interview with Stewart on May 24, 2007, Al Gore stated that The Daily Show was one of the best places to get news, saying that now, much like the 13th century, the jester is perhaps the only one who can tell the truth without getting his head cut off.

Through Kilborn's run and the early years of Stewart's, the celebrity interviews would most often take place midway through the program. In recent years this has changed to the interviews being placed near the end of the show. Recent years have also seen the show's guest list tend away from celebrities and more towards non-fiction book authors and various political pundits, as well as many prominent elected officials. In one notable 2004 interview, former president Bill Clinton appeared on the show to discuss his autobiography, My Life. In the course of the interview, Clinton discussed the attacks on presidential candidate John Kerry's war record and the admissions of fraud by and no-bid contracts awarded to Halliburton, the company closely associated with Vice President Dick Cheney.

On December 1, 2005, the White Stripes became the first musical guests to perform on a regular episode of the show. After a brief interview with Stewart, the duo performed their songs "The Denial Twist" and later, "My Doorbell." In a press release, Stewart said, "We've never had a musical performance on the show before — not because we haven't wanted one — but because we were holding out for a reunited Spandau Ballet. This will have to suffice." They Might Be Giants's appearance on the December 15, 1999 special "The Greatest Millennium" where they performed the theme (Bob Mould's "Dog On Fire"), incidental music, and their song "I Can Hear You" is not counted, as the producers do not consider it to be a part of the regular series. Another "unofficial" performance came on September 29, 2003, when Tenacious D played from the couch.

When Stephen Colbert started his own show, The Colbert Report, which airs immediately after The Daily Show, Stewart began ending his show "checking in" with Stephen Colbert, usually exchanging notes on each other's shows, which is then followed by the Moment of Zen. On August 8, 2006, Stephen Colbert turned the tables and "checked in" with Jon Stewart as Stewart was leaving to go home.[8] On August 10, 2006, Stephen Colbert reappeared on the set of The Daily Show to demand that Jon apologize to Geraldo Rivera, who on The O'Reilly Factor said that Stewart and Colbert "counted for nothing" and showed "clips of old ladies slipping on ice" for humor. Colbert, in character, condemned The Daily Show for angering Rivera. When Stewart refused to apologize, Colbert proclaimed him "On Notice", though Jon averted the crisis by appearing on The Colbert Report the following Monday and apologizing (after "walking a mile in Geraldo's shoes" by wearing his mustache).

As a news source

Television ratings show that the program generally has 1.45 to 1.6 million viewers nightly,[10] a high figure for cable television. In demographic terms, the viewership is skewed to a relatively young audience compared to traditional news shows. A 2004 Nielsen Media Research study commissioned by Comedy Central put the median age at 35. In fact, during the 2004 U.S. presidential election, the show received more male viewers in the 18-34 year old age demographic than Nightline, Meet the Press, Hannity & Colmes and all of the evening news broadcasts.[11] Because of this, Howard Dean posited during an appearance that Stewart and Bill Maher serve as a real source of news for young people, regardless of their intentions.

The show's writers often repeat the fact that The Daily Show is a comedy program and not a reliable news source by itself. The show does not follow normal rules of journalistic integrity, but much of the schtick of the program involves questioning whether establishment television news sources in the United States, notably the cable news channels CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News Channel, are holding themselves to normal rules of journalistic integrity.

The Washington Post ran an article on August 24, 2004 in which it quoted Nightline anchor Ted Koppel, who said to his viewers in a telecast from the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston: "A lot of television viewers — more, quite frankly, than I'm comfortable with — get their news from the Comedy Channel on a program called The Daily Show." Stewart took issue with Koppel's comment, saying Daily Show fans watch "for comedic interpretation" of the news. "[They watch] to be informed", Koppel replied, refusing to budge from his position: "They actually think they're coming closer to the truth with your show." Stewart shot back: "Now that's a different thing, that's credibility, that's a different animal." Appearing on each other's shows a few weeks later, Koppel and Stewart downplayed the idea that the two had any mutual animosity. Also, in America (The Book), written by the staff of the Daily Show, Ted Koppel was one of only two political interviewers that the authors deemed credible (the other was Tim Russert). Later, Koppel even participated in one of Jon Stewart's ongoing jokes, temporarily taking the moniker "The Giant Head of Ted Koppel", berating Stewart from a massive video screen on the set.

The National Annenberg Election Survey at the University of Pennsylvania ran a study of American television viewers around the same time and found that fans of The Daily Show had a more accurate idea of the facts behind the 2004 presidential election than most others.[12] The study primarily focused on comparing the audiences of TDS with that of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman, but Daily Show viewers also beat out people who primarily got their news through the national evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC and those who mostly read newspapers, while roughly matching the knowledge level of viewers who watched a considerable amount of cable TV news. The study attempted to compensate for the fact that many viewers of TDS get information from many sources, including the Internet.

The National Annenberg Election Survey is, however, contradictory to a survey by Pew Research Center (the study does not focus on The Daily Show specifically, but on 'comedy shows' in general). According to Pew Research Center on their 2004 campaign survey, those who cited comedy shows as a source for news were among the least informed on campaign events and key aspects of the candidates' backgrounds while those who cited the Internet, National Public Radio, and news magazines were the most informed. People who cited newspapers, public news TV shows, and talk radio were also nearly as knowledgeable as people who used the Internet as a source. Even when age and education were taken into account, the people who learned about the campaigns through the Internet were still the most informed, while those who learned from comedy shows were the least informed.[13] NPR redirects here. ...


In 2006, a study published by Indiana University tried to compare the substantive amount of information of The Daily Show against prime time network news broadcasts. Julia R. Fox, an assistant professor of telecommunications at the university, showed in her study, "No Joke: A Comparison of Substance in The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Broadcast Network Television Coverage of the 2004 Presidential Election Campaign"[14] (to be published in the summer of 2007), that when it comes to substance, there is little difference between the Daily Show and other news outlets. By using coverage and footage of the 2004 presidential election, she analyzes and compares both communication media. What she found was that neither actually offers more, since both programs are more focused on the nature of "infotainment" and ratings, making them both "equal" in content.[15] The analysis indicates that the Daily Show offered more humor than substance in their coverage, but that same study also found that the typical network coverage preferred to offer more hype than any real political substance.[16] The study seems to indicate that either The Daily Show has become a legitimate 'news source' or the mainstream media has ceased to be one.[17] Julia Fox states that "In an absolute sense, we should probably be concerned about both of those sources, because neither one is particularly substantive. It's a bottom-line industry and ratings-driven. We live in an 'infotainment' society, and there certainly are a number of other sources available." According to Fox, the study was less of an endorsement for The Daily Show; rather instead was meant to indict the negligence of news networks for their failure to uphold high standards in their political coverage.[18] Indiana University is the principal campus of the Indiana University system. ...

More recently, the Pew Research Center conducted a survey, released on April 15, 2007, that shows that regular viewers of The Daily Show tend to be more knowledgeable about news than audiences of other news sources. Approximately 54% of The Daily Show viewers scored in the high knowledge range in comparison to 34% of network morning shows viewers who scored in the same range. The survey shows that changing news formats have not made much difference on how much the public knows about national and international affairs; however, it notes that there is no clear connection between news formats and what audiences know. In addition, the survey gave a breakdown of the percent of people who regularly watch certain news sources and listed that 16% of respondents regularly watch The Daily Show and/or The Colbert Report.[19] The Project for Excellence in Journalism also released a content analysis report suggesting that The Daily Show comes close to providing the complete daily news.[20] The Project for Excellence in Journalism is a US non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to researching and evaluating the news media. ...


Stewart was half-facetiously floated as a possible successor to Dan Rather of CBS Evening News according to Time (this is partly because, at the time, Comedy Central and CBS were both owned by media conglomerate Viacom). The Daily Show writers authored a best-selling text, America (The Book), published in September 2004. It remained a bestseller even after the election, despite a decision by Wal-Mart to cancel its order because Chapter 5, on the Judicial Branch, includes obviously doctored photographs of the then current Supreme Court justices, with their heads superimposed on appropriately aged naked bodies. On the page opposite the photographs, the reader is invited to "restore their dignity" by covering each justice with a cutout of his or her robe. A Wal-Mart spokeswoman was quoted in USA Today as saying, "We felt a majority of our customers would not be comfortable with the image." The book was also banned from some Mississippi public libraries for its ribald "centerfold". (The ban was lifted within 24 hours of its announcement after the library board received complaints.) Stewart responded to this on air by saying, "Of course the go-to joke here would be, 'They have libraries in Mississippi?' But we're not going there." Daniel Irvin Rather, Jr. ...

Criticism

Accusations of liberal bias

Conservatives, including Bill O'Reilly and Bill Kristol, have argued that The Daily Show has a liberal bias. Stewart says that the show does have a point of view but that its aim is not to do political work, and he pointed out that it was not his fault if conservatives provide more causes for criticism than liberals. He asserts that the show is not "a liberal organization," rather an "equal opportunity offender".[22] It has been suggested that Bill OReilly political beliefs and points of view be merged into this article or section. ... For the American comedian, see Billy Crystal. ... Liberal bias is a common phrase used in American political discourse to express the view that the American media generally has a liberal bias. ... American liberalism—that is, liberalism in the United States of America—is a broad political and philosophical mindset, favoring individual liberty, and opposing restrictions on liberty, whether they come from established religion, from government regulation, from the existing class structure, or from multi-national corporations. ...


As of February 2008, Bill Kristol has been a guest on the show seven times and Bill O'Reilly has been on twice. In a 2004 appearance by Jon Stewart on Bill O'Reilly's own show[23], the FOX News commentator made it clear that he thinks Jon Stewart aims his comic barbs at both right- and left-wing politicians.


Stewart is often critical of Democratic politicians for being weak, timid, or ineffective. He said in an interview with Larry King, prior to the 2006 elections, "I honestly don't feel that [the Democrats] make an impact. They have 49 percent of the vote and three percent of the power. At a certain point you go, 'Guys, pick up your game.'"[24] He has targeted them for failing to effectively stand on some issues, such as their stance on the war in Iraq. For instance, regarding Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller's criticism of exaggerated intelligence on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Stewart said, "Democrats: always standing up for what they later realized they should've believed in."

In an interview in 2005, when Stephen Colbert was asked how he responds to critics claiming that The Daily Show is overly liberal, he said, "We are liberal, but Jon's very respectful of the Republican guests, and, listen, if liberals were in power it would be easier to attack them, but Republicans have the executive, legislative and judicial branches, so making fun of Democrats is like kicking a child, so it’s just not worth it."[25] Year 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Ben Karlin, then the show's executive producer, said in a 2004 interview, "If you're asking whether we require a loyalty oath, the answer is perhaps.

Interviews

When asked, Jon Stewart and others connected with the show describe it as an entertainment program dealing in "fake news" and reject the idea that they are a news show that undertakes any kind of journalism. Critics, including Tucker Carlson and Lizz Winstead, one of The Daily Show's creators, have chastized Stewart for taking a journalistic approach to his solo segments and then, in interviews with the same politicians and newspeople he often lampoons, rarely taking them to task face-to-face. Winstead said, "When you are interviewing a Richard Perle or a Kissinger, if you give them a pass, then you become what you are satirizing." Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson (born May 16, 1969) is a U.S. political news pundit who formerly co-hosted CNNs Crossfire and MSNBCs Tucker. ... Lizz Winstead (born August 5, 1961) is a Minnesota-born comedian who was co-creator of The Daily Show along with Madeleine Smithberg, and served as head writer. ... Richard N. Perle (born 16 September 1941 in New York City) is an American political advisor and lobbyist who worked for the Reagan administration as an assistant Secretary of Defense and worked on the Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee from 1987 to 2004. ... Henry Alfred Kissinger (born Heinz Alfred Kissinger on May 27, 1923) is a German-born American politician, and 1973 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. ...


During Stewart's appearance on CNN's Crossfire, Stewart criticized that show and said that it was "hurting America" by reducing issues to a left vs. right screaming match and enabling political spin. When co-host Carlson complained that Stewart did not ask John Kerry substantial questions when Kerry appeared on The Daily Show, Stewart countered that it was not his job to give hard-hitting interviews. Suggesting that a "fake news" comedy program should not be held to the same standards as real journalists, Stewart said, "You're on CNN! The show that leads into me is puppets making crank phone calls! What is wrong with you?"[27] December 6, 2004 edition of Crossfire. ...

Enabling complacency

In a March 4, 2006, article in The Boston Globe, "Why Jon Stewart Isn't Funny", Michael Kalin argued that Jon Stewart's laughs come at the expense of idealism and too easily enables American college students to adopt a self-righteous attitude toward politics, ultimately rendering them complacent and apathetic. is the 63rd day of the year (64th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... The Boston Globe (and Boston Sunday Globe) is the most widely circulated daily newspaper in Boston, Massachusetts and New England. ...

"Stewart...leads to a "holier than art thou" attitude [among students] toward our national leaders. People who possess the wit, intelligence, and self-awareness of viewers of The Daily Show would never choose to enter the political fray full of "buffoons and idiots." Content to remain perched atop their Olympian ivory towers, these bright leaders head straight for the private sector."[28]

A Daily Reflector article about The Daily Show viewers concluded that they trust their own knowledge in politics, rather than the news media or the elites who run the political-media system. The article suggests that citizens who believe they understand politics may be more active in the system than those who do not. Yet the article also points out that cynicism can be a voter turnoff.[29] The Daily Reflector is a daily newspaper that serves Pitt County and eastern North Carolina. ...


There are those who do not agree that watching The Daily Show is harmful to the youth or a cause of apathy in young voters.[30][31] Defenders of the show point out that Stewart is putting a humorous spin on a faulty system. They contend that as long as Stewart's jokes are factually correct, then responsibility for increased cynicism should belong to the political and media figures themselves, not the comedian who makes fun of them.[32]


Stewart has said that he does not take any joy in the failings of American government. "We're not the guys at the craps table betting against the line," he said on Larry King Live. "We'd make fun of something else," Stewart said, "if government suddenly became inspiring...we would be the happiest people in the world to turn our attention to idiots like, you know, media people, no offense."[33] Larry King Live is an American talk show hosted by Larry King on CNN. The show debuted in 1985, and is CNNs most watched program, with over one million viewers nightly. ...


Editions for various markets

An edited version of the show, called The Daily Show — Global Edition, is run outside of the U.S. on CNN International once a week on several weekend time slots. This edition is prefaced by the following announcement, which is also displayed in written form against a Daily Show background: CNN International (CNNI) is an English language television network that carries news, current affairs and business programming world-wide. ...

"The show you are about to watch is a news parody. Its stories are not fact checked. Its reporters are not journalists. And its opinions are not fully thought through."

However the announcement is not used by all other international broadcasters. Viewers are invited to send comments regarding the show to CNN by email.


For the Global Edition, Stewart provides an exclusive introductory monologue in front of an audience, usually about the week's prevalent international news story, and closing comments without an audience present. The segments for the Global Edition are usually culled from Monday and Tuesday's episodes. Strong language is often censored on CNN, even if it means losing a punch line.

Spin-offs

Main article: The Colbert Report

A spin-off, The Colbert Report, was announced in early May 2005. The show stars Stephen Colbert, and serves as Comedy Central's answer to the programs of media pundits such as Bill O'Reilly. The word "Report" in the show's title, like "Colbert", is pronounced with a silent "t". Colbert, Stewart, and Ben Karlin pitched the idea of the show to Comedy Central chief Doug Herzog, who agreed to run the show for eight weeks without first creating a pilot. The Colbert Report first aired on October 17, 2005, and takes up the 11:30PM ET/PT slot following The Daily Show. Initial ratings satisfied Comedy Central and the show was renewed for a year.

He is also married to fellow former correspondent Nancy Walls. Carell visited the show again in June 2007 to promote his movie Evan Almighty, this time appearing to have a young servant, poking fun at his success after the show. The servant was portrayed by Daily Show segment producer and columnist Elliott Kalan.
