“Forget the 24 hour biased left-wing news media, the best fake news show in the world will provide you with all the news you can handle. The Daily Show is a comedic view of recent news headlines and political figures through a series of satirical monologues by Jon Stewart along with segments by “correspondents” and finally interviews with guest celebrities and political figures. Craig Kilborn (SportsCenter) was the original host until the fourth season, when Jon Stewart (The Jon Stewart Show) came in to take over after Kilborn left for CBS.”
“The Daily Show” season 19, episode 48 airs Jan. 16 at 10 p.m. EST, 9 p.m. CST on Comedy Central.
