    Jon Stewart to Return to the Daily Show

    Jon Stewart is coming back to the Daily Show to host on Mondays and be an executive producer. Should be fun in an election year.

    I've always wondered if the results of the 2016 election would have been different had Stewart not left the Daily Show in early 2015. Would he have brought a different perspective to covering Trump? Or HRC's emails/Comey? Would he have increased election engagement and voting with a younger demographic? Or would nothing have been different?

    I love Jon Stewart. He mostly "preaches to the choir", though. I go over to watch Fox News every once in a while. I admit that I watch just to confirm my bias, and satisfaction is guaranteed. I think it's the Ted Baxter effect that finally sends me away.

    At least I try. I suspect that most conservatives will dismiss Jon as a left-wing kook, and won't bother to tune in. And, to your point, I think it would have been that way in 2016. I hope I'm wrong.
    Man, if your Mom made you wear that color when you were a baby, and you're still wearing it, it's time to grow up!

    I like Jon Stewart much more than Trevor Noah. However, I'll choose John Oliver over Stewart, unless Stewart has changed his methodology.

    Stewart did a great job of taking the Craig Kilbourne model of "play it for jokes" and adding a level of gravitas to the format.

    John Oliver made it an HBO show my adding MUCH more research, fewer laughs, and a fair amount of editorialism too.

    Makes for a much more compelling show.

    Both are definitely lefties, but both aren't afraid to expose hypocrisy on either side of the aisle.

    His return is worth a watch. Glad to see his voice again.

    So lip-reading is among your many talents? ( sorry, couldn't resist)

    Agree. However, I can't believe his 1st guest (and he's only doing this once a week, so there won't be many) is a Brit who works for a British newspaper. I'm an Anglophile, but I don't need any of them, who elected Boris and Liz (among others), telling me who is capable of running our country.

    He would be a good guest for Stewart.

    I had forgotten how Jon is definitely a lefty, but absolutely skewers both sides without apology.
