I have yet to see an episode I didn't like, and almost completely agree with all he says..

Stewart's the only sane pundit on the tube with the possible exception of Colbert.

It's fascinating to see how fearful the "very fair and imbalanced" folks at Fox are of him.

Nobody has a better nose for Republican (Fox) hypocrisy than Stewart!

Just watched the recent episode with Diane Keaton...

In the third/final segment where the guest interview takes place, most of the time, Jon finishes the interview with a quip & a plug (for their movie, book, whatever), re-states the guest's name, then the applause goes up, Jon leans over to the guest feigning close conversation.

There's a certain number of guests who don't seem to know the protocol around wrapping up the interview. He'll do the quip/plug/restate, and the guest will stand up as though they've been excused to leave. He knows that this happens occasionally, and quickly reaches over to grab their arm to keep them there as the camera pans back.

Yeah, noticing that kind of detail is a sure sign of brain injury &/or lack of life. Still, it's funny to see...and it tends to happen with older guests, or with high-stature political guests who don't typically do such interviews.

Stewart and Colbert are huge threats to the MSM. I remember when Faux News tried to create their own version of The Daily Show/Colbert Report. It was called the "Half Hour News Hour." The first episode was hosted by Limbaugh and the Coultergeist. It was a total failure.

Jon Stewart is the biggest threat to Fox News’ future out there.

He is literally teaching his audience, which is bigger than FNC’s, how to see through the partisan propaganda that Rupert Murdoch has based his network on. Stewart is educating an entire generation of viewers on how to watch cable news, or more specifically how not to watch Fox News.

Unless Fox News can figure out a way to attract younger viewers, they are facing a future where their audience will eventually, literally die off. A 2010 survey found that the average age of the Fox News viewer is 65 years old. Fox has the oldest audience on all of cable. (FNC’s audience is older than The History Channel, The Hallmark Channel, and The Golf Channel).

Jon Stewart is on the non-prime time hour of 11 PM, yet he outdraws 2/3 of the Fox News prime time line up, and he has more viewers the entire FNC prime time and daytime lineups combined. Only Bill O’Reilly is preventing Stewart from being more popular than every single program on Fox News.

The proof is in the numbers, and the numbers don’t lie. Jon Stewart is more popular than Fox News.

It was pretty funny when Colbert got his audience to vote for him, by write in, to get part of the Space Station named after him. Hannity couldn't pull that off.

Dennis Miller as a stand up comic had the funniest rap I'd ever seen of any comic anywhere. Seriously laughed so hard, my stomach muscles were sore for several days afterwards, he had the whole audience on the floor. His radio show is OK, much better than Rush, O'reilly or Hannity.

Colbert and Jon Stewart are both awesome, but I noticed that when Bush ended his term, Stewarts comedy dropped off significantly. Some of it wasn't even funny. Its been coming back strong lately.

"...but I noticed that when Bush ended his term, Stewarts comedy dropped off significantly..."

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Same thing happened when Trump said he was out.

Perhaps the reason his comedy has been better of late is because of the endless plates of idiocy that has been handed to him by the GOP POTUS campaign? Lawdyknows there's been plenty of material there to work with...
