Jon Stewart Is Coming Back to Host ‘The Daily Show’

Jon Stewart is returning to The Daily Show nearly a decade after his departure.

The comedian, who led the show for 16 years, will host each Monday beginning February 12. Stewart will also executive produce the show and work with a rotating line-up of comedians who will host the program for the rest of the week.

Stewart’s sharp-witted takes turned the Comedy Central program into must-see television. He became well-known for his biting monologues often aimed at politicians, so it makes sense that Stewart would make his return as the 2024 presidential election is heating up. It’s safe to say that Stewart will have plenty of things to say about this political season.

After leaving The Daily Show in 2015, Stewart was replaced by Trevor Noah, who hosted the show through 2022. Over the last year, the show has relied on a roster of guest hosts consisting of comedians and actors, although few were able to land the punches quite like Noah and Stewart.

“Stewart is the voice of our generation, and we are honored to have him return to Comedy Central’s The Daily Show to help us all make sense of the insanity and division roiling the country as we enter the election season,” Chris McCarthy, chief executive of Showtime and MTV Entertainment Studios, said in a statement. “In our age of staggering hypocrisy and performative politics, Jon is the perfect person to puncture the empty rhetoric and provide much-needed clarity with his brilliant wit.”
