I couldn't agree more! This is usually how I keep up-to-date on current affairs, much more fun and uplifting than the evening news.

It was in the mid-90's when a little cable channel called Comedy Central first appeared on my radar. I can tell people with complete honesty that I knew and watched the station before it was even close to cool. Unfortunately, my earliest experiences with Comedy Central were letdowns, because the station wasn't exactly rolling in the dough. All they could really do were present people with those really bad movies big stars often got stuck making before they ever hit the A-list and reruns of sitcoms …

Under Stewart, The Daily Show has become more strongly focused around politics and the national media, in contrast with the more character-driven focus during Kilborn's tenure.

Describing itself as a fake news program, The Daily Show draws its comedy from recent news stories, satirizing political figures, media organizations, and often, aspects of the show itself. The show typically opens with a monologue from the host relating to recent headlines and frequently features exchanges with one or more of several correspondents, who adopt absurd or humorously exaggerated takes on current events against Stewart's straight man persona. The final segment is devoted to a celebrity interview, with guests ranging from actors and musicians to nonfiction authors and political figures.
