T-Meter Title | Year
63% The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 13 (TV, 1999-2015) The show was a well-oiled machine at this point, and it knew the best ways to get people to embarrass themselves. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

92% The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 18 (TV, 1999-2015) Stewart, a man clear in his political stance, backed by a research apparatus that informs about the ways in which government has failed while also satirizing it. I can't imagine The Daily Show even touching a situation like Sandy Hook in its early years - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 11 (TV, 1999-2015) The Mark Foley congressional-page scandal was a sort of perfect storm... It's a remarkable episode for The Daily Show and for Stewart in particular, who has his cake and eats it, too. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 8 (TV, 1999-2015) It was fascinating to see Stewart come into his own (and somewhere along the way acquire a suit that actually fit him). - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 10 (TV, 1999-2015) Nobody had seen a format quite like this before, laying out the media tricks and vamps so plainly and succinctly. The Daily Show made media critics out of every single one of its viewers. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 7 (TV, 1999-2015) The show knows when to poke fun at the ridiculousness of the situation, like when Republicans wanted to shift from French fries to "freedom fries." But Stewart's interviews show a host perfecting a style both genial and confrontational. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 6 (TV, 1999-2015) It was around this time that The Daily Show team seemed to be sharpening its research and compilation skills. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 5 (TV, 1999-2015) Most of the show's presidential commentary during the early 2001 period focused on Bush's ability to conjure up new words and speculation that Cheney was pulling the strings, a joke that was old even in 2001. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 4 (TV, 1999-2015) In hindsight, the early Daily Show seems like a fairly rote satirical newscast, heavily segmented with recurring bits. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

86% The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 3 (TV, 1999-2015) These nascent episodes of The Daily Show, viewed in hindsight, have an odd whiplash effect, moving back and forth between amusingly outdated segments and universally relevant ones... There are also some artifacts best left in the '90s. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT
