Jon Stewart returns to late night TV to make sense of this crazy election

Earlier this week, Jon Stewart helped Stephen Colbert find himself, both literally and figuratively. Hosting live shows this week has done wonders for The Late Show, and in order to cap it all off, Colbert invited Stewart back once again on Thursday night, but it was for much more than a cameo appearance this time.

On Thursday night, Jon Stewart brought The Daily Show to CBS.

Jon Stewart turned Stephen Colbert back into ‘Stephen Colbert’ last night

Jon Stewart turned Stephen Colbert back into ‘Stephen Colbert’ last night

On Monday afternoon, the Republican National Convention kicked off in Cleveland, Ohio. As expected, there were plenty of fireworks, from a group of delegates attempting to stage a coup of sorts against Donald Trump to Melania Trump lifting a portion of her speech wholesale from Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech.

But perhaps the biggest news of all was that Stephen Colbert, hosting a live RNC special on CBS, brought his character ‘Stephen Colbert’ back from the dead.

Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart will reunite for The Late Show’s RNC coverage

Having to navigate our way through this incomprehensible election cycle without the help of Jon Stewart has been difficult. Yes, we have Trevor Noah in his place at The Daily Show, John Oliver tearing it up every Sunday on Last Week Tonight and Samantha Bee proving she deserves her own show with Full Frontal, but it’s hard not to miss the guy that got us here in the first place.

Thankfully, for at least one night, he’s coming back to television. More →

Jon Stewart Interview Video

Watch Jon Stewart’s hilarious but brief interview on Samantha Bee’s ‘Full Frontal’

Watch Jon Stewart’s hilarious but brief interview on Samantha Bee’s ‘Full Frontal’

I have to be perfectly honest: I kind of hated Samantha Bee when she was on The Daily Show. OK, “hate” is a strong word, but I was not a fan at all. In fact, I found her segments to be so annoying that I regularly used them as an opportunity to get up and leave the room for a refill or a snack. In other words, at the time I would tend to sit through commercial breaks over Bee’s Daily Show segments.

I’m not a regular watcher of her new TBS show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, but I have checked it out on a few occasions since it premiered with a fair amount of critical acclaim. While her character on Full Frontal is quite similar to her Daily Show personality, she’s much smarter on the new show and I really did enjoy what I saw. Of course, the show became even more enjoyable on Monday evening when Jon Stewart stopped by for a quick interview. More →

Jon Snow isn’t the only Jon that HBO fans are excited to see return to television this year. Speaking with CNN’s Brian Stelter in a Paley Media Council interview this week, HBO CEO Brian Plepler was asked about the chances that Jon Stewart would make his way on to the network before the election in November.

“Yeah, I’m hopeful,” Plepler responded. More →

Jon Stewart crashed Stephen Colbert’s Late Show monologue last night

Although Jon Stewart has been avoiding the limelight in the months following his departure from The Daily Show, one important issue has given him a very good reason to return to television. Earlier this week, Stewart appeared as a guest on Trevor Noah’s show in order to shed light on the Zadroga Act, and last night he crashed Colbert’s show to do the same.

Jon Stewart Returns to The Daily Show

Jon Stewart returned to The Daily Show as a guest for the first time last night

Jon Stewart returned to The Daily Show as a guest for the first time last night

After retiring from The Daily Show in August, Jon Stewart has steered clear of the studio in order to let Trevor Noah form an identity without any interference from the old host. It was the right move, and the new version of the show, while familiar, has taken on a life of its own.

But now that Noah is comfortable in his role, Stewart decided it was time to return as a guest this week to talk about something important to him. More →

Unless you’re really into professional wrestling, you might have missed Jon Stewart hosting WWE SummerSlam over the weekend. Stewart is a self-proclaimed wrestling fan, so it wasn’t a complete shock, but it’s crazy to think that this is the comedian’s first gig since retiring from The Daily Show earlier this month. More →

There’s a petition to get Jon Stewart to moderate a presidential debate

American politics got a lot less interesting when Jon Stewart left The Daily Show earlier this month. The comic had been on the air for over 15 years pointing out the hypocrisy of the news media and the politicians they covered, but fans still haven’t had enough of Stewart’s wry wit, which is why one petition has been gaining traction quickly.

Watch Jon Stewart tear up at Stephen Colbert’s heartfelt tribute

Last night marked the end of an era as Jon Stewart said goodbye as host of The Daily Show after 17 years. The satirical Comedy Central news show has ignited several careers over the years and one of its most successful offspring has been Stephen Colbert, who will be taking over David Letterman’s spot on CBS’s The Late Show this fall. For Stewart’s final appearance, Colbert returned to the show and paid an impromptu tribute to the man who gave him his start in the fake TV news business. More →
