As the late night shows shuffle around, there has been a lot of talk about adding some diversity to the predominately white, male hosts and after much speculation, it was announced that Larry Wilmore will be taking over Stephen Colbert‘s 11:30pm spot on Comedy Central in 2015. More
For the longest time, I have absolutely loved The Daily Show. I think Jon Stewart is an overall sensible human being whose “WTF?!” facial expression accurately depicts how I feel about the news at any given time. More
To wrap up her neverending press tour, Jennifer Lawrence stopped by The Daily Show to talk about Catching Fire. Or not talk about Catching Fire. It turns out that Jon Stewart doesn’t exactly prepare for interviews. More
I bet you thought you could trust Jon Stewart, didn’t you? Sure, he left us for the summer in the (definitely British, probably capable) hands of John Oliver, but we have a history before that spanning almost a decade and a half. We had a life together, he and I and us, a life based on trust and respect and communication, and so we believed him when he said he needed to take a break from The Daily Show and we just assumed that meant all forms of the show.

Did you take the appropriate time necessary to prepare yourself emotionally and physically for your dream-boyfriend Jon Stewart to leave your dream-castle The Daily Show for the whole entire summer? I hope so, because it just happened. More
In bittersweet news, Jon Stewart, star of The Faculty, is taking a break from The Daily Show this summer to pursue directing his first feature film. While I’m very sad that my evenings will be Stewart-free for a short time, I’m also happy that not only is he pursuing something he’s passionate about, but that we’ll get to see a Jon Stewart production in theaters eventually.

Apparently, Heidi Klum has watched The Bodyguard one too many times. More
As a 17-year-old girl, I did what I normally do this past Monday night. I turned on The Daily Show to watch hilarious analysis of the day’s news events. And by news events I’m not talking about Paul Ryan. I don’t even know who that is. Sounds like an underwear model. I’m talking, of course, about Robert Pattinson. More

Well never did I ever think I’d find myself attracted to part-time-human, part-time-vampire Robert Pattinson. But his interview last night on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart made me understand why people around the world are sending death threats to Kristen Stewart. More
Following the (justified) shit storm caused by Daniel Tosh‘s hurtful and un-funny rape “joke” last week, many people were sad to see what seemed like a tweet in support coming from the generally enlightened comic Louis CK. “Your show makes me laugh every time I watch it,” he said, “and you have pretty eyes.” Oy. More
Brad Pitt seems like a painfully obvious choice for a celebrity crush, but what with all the funny and charming things he says and does, he pretty much leaves us no choice. More
A photo has been going around the internet that’s supposedly of The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart diving into the pit at a Dead Kennedys show in Richmond, VA in 1982. While the guy in the photo does look a great deal like a young Jon Stewart, it’s actually bassist Alford Faulkner, of Red Cross and The Prevaricators. More
This week a teacher in Illinois was suspended for showing her government class some clips of The Daily Show. There are a lot of reasons that showing a bunch of high school kids clips of the show in class could be problematic. They’ll get an opinionated slant on the news instead of unbiased facts, they might feel uncomfortable with the humor, and they’ll have less time to memorize things the Preamble to the Constitution. But suspending her seems a little extreme.
Even if most of the students disagreed with Stewart’s slant on the day’s events, it could have been a good way to spark an impassioned class debate, and as anyone who’s gone to high school can attest to, there’s a lot worse being shown to students today. More
