Jon Stewart was the host of The Daily Show for 16 years until he decided to put his efforts into actual change in the country. Now he’s returning.
Starting Monday, Feb 12, 2024, Jon will return to cover the 2024 election. But he’ll only be there on Mondays. As one of the new executive producers Jon will run the desk Mondays while other comedians will host the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday shows. Fridays are typically reruns.
“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.
“In our age of staggering hypocrisy and performative politics,” McCarthy added, “Jon is the perfect person to puncture the empty rhetoric and provide much-needed clarity with his brilliant wit.”
