Jon Stewart Makes a Comeback to ‘The Daily Show’ Nearly 9 Years After Departure
Jon Stewart Makes a Triumphant Return to ‘The Daily Show’ After Nearly a Decade
After a hiatus of nearly nine years, Jon Stewart reclaimed his position at the helm of ‘The Daily Show,’ stepping back into the spotlight following Trevor Noah’s departure in late 2022.
Following a year of guest hosts rotating through the anchor’s seat, the show’s creators decided to bring back Stewart, the iconic figure behind the show’s success.
Stewart’s return was met with enthusiastic cheers and applause from the audience as he quipped, “Now where was I?”
Humorously addressing his comeback, Stewart joked, “I have committed a lot of crimes, and from what I understand, talk show hosts are granted immunity.”
Delving into the evening’s topics, Stewart tackled everything from the Super Bowl to dissecting the 2024 presidential election, offering his signature blend of humor and incisive political commentary.
During the episode, Stewart engaged with the show’s correspondents, including Dulcé Sloan, who humorously commented on the election’s candidates.
While Stewart’s return marks a significant moment, he will only be hosting on Mondays, with the show’s news team taking over for the rest of the week. Jordan Klepper is set to anchor the show for the upcoming days.
The Daily Show’ airs weeknights on Comedy Central, with new episodes available on Paramount+ the following day.
