Series Info

Jon Stewart's hip, irreverent skewering of the news and pop culture elevated this already successful series to new comedic heights (and doubled its audience) after he took over for Craig Kilborn in 1999. `If you watch the news and don't like it, then this is your counter program to the news,' Stewart said. Comedy Central's signature show snagged an Emmy in 2003 as the Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series.

Critics Consensus: Satirical anchor Jon Stewart -- older, wiser, and visibly exhausted -- finishes a hugely impactful run hosting the The Daily Show on his own terms in a final round that is equal doses politically impassioned and warmly sentimental.

Critics Consensus: John Oliver's star rises when the cheeky correspondent takes the reins of The Daily Show in Jon Stewart's absence, proving that the realm of quality satirical journalism is not confined to the charisma of its pioneering arbiter.

Critics Consensus: The Daily Show mines comedic gold from a bitterly contentious election season while coming into their own as a journalistic force - even if Jon Stewart keeps insisting that the team's fierce shots at hypocrisy are just mirthful spitballs.
