Re: The Daily Show with guests hosts (Comedy Central)

Oh, I'm sure he doesn't want the grind of a 4-day a week show. This is also a time limited commitment (this year only). Comedy Central must've dangled a big ol' bag of cash to get him to do this. Also, maybe he wants to feel better after The Problem unceremoniously ended. I wonder if he's going to bring over a lot of his Problem staff?

Re: The Daily Show with guests hosts (Comedy Central)

There's a little bit of behind the scenes in this article. Not as much as the headline implies. I thought the most interesting part of the article was the confirmation that it was essentially a done deal to make Hasan Minhaj the new host last summer until that hit piece in the New Yorker came out, and Comedy Central got cold feet.

This article is a great summation about the concerns I feel about Jon's return to the Daily Show:

And she really nails some of you people in this thread: "It seems likely, though, that many who tune in will be Stewart loyalists doing so out of nostalgia."

That's a stupid reason to pass on Hasan.

Yeah, I wish they'd just give it to Minhaj. I think he would do great.

Pretty neutral on Minhaj as a performer but itís lame he missed out on the opportunity of a lifetime for that.

I did mean Zoomers, so I don't know if you just misunderstood, or if you, as a Boomer, have some special insight into the cultural consumption of Zoomers?

Re: The Daily Show with guests hosts (Comedy Central)

I guess I donít understand the issue some have with Stewart being brought back. Thereís no host currently and Stewart is well known and liked for his political commentary.

I would also say heís kept himself pretty relevant. Plus heís not signed on permanently. At this point itís Mondays through election season as far as we know.

Is it because heís older that heís somehow being deemed a Boomer and out of touch or what exactly is the problem?

I am absolutely glad to see Stewart back, his voice is totally needed in this day and age.

But at a guess, I would say the problem that some people (like myself have) is that not enough is being done to create a back-bench roster of younger voices to take their place when they have to retire for good (same issue with the Democratic party, not doing anything to train their successors).

Yeah it was great. I had minor quibbles with the framing of one thing but laughed throughout.Some liberals online are very upset that he talked about Biden as much as he did. Donít know which Daily Show they used to watch but this seemed like the same old show to me.

No offense meant to Trevor, but I wish Jon had never left. That was great!

I especially liked how he slipped in ďmaybe weíll talk about China, maybe weíll talk about AIĒ - a well-deserved kick in the slats to Apple.

Dammit, this made me sign up for Paramount Plus. Great to see him back.

Very glad to see him, he got right back into the groove. And I'm glad to see him pointing out the issues with Biden; Trump is horrifically bad for this country but is Biden really the absolute best we can do?

I'm tempted, since Comedy Central isn't its own channel anymore (I'm still not clear on that beyond the app saying it's no longer there).

The YouTube clips I posted above went up not long after the episode aired, if Iím not mistaken, and I think they represent the bulk of the show (?), so thatís always an option. Being in Canada, I worried it would only be on some subscription service, which I guess is the other option.

During the later part of Stewartís prior run, the episodes were broadcast on CTV up here, which put them up fairly quickly on their site and app, with ads, but I only watched Trevor Noah sporadically via YouTube, so I was relieved they didnít make Stewartís Monday episodes like a premium deal or something.

Agreed. This is why I've always loved Stewart. Though he's a liberal himself, he gives everyone equal opportunity when it comes to revealing their BS.

I might eventually go a different route like that, so far I'm not impressed with Paramount's amount of content (at least in Canada, I'm guessing the US version has more shows). I was expecting a lot more Comedy Central shows to be on there, but not really. After I blow through the stuff I want to see, I'll have to decide if it's still worth the subscription price, I'm not paying ten bucks Canadian a month just because of one show.
