About The Daily Show
The Daily Show (currently The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) is a Peabody and Emmy Award-winning half-hour American comical news television program produced by and run on the Comedy Central cable television network. The show premiered on Monday, July 22, 1996, and was hosted by Craig Kilborn, who acted as an anchorman. In 1998, Kilborn left the show and was replaced by Jon Stewart in early 1999.
Providing news-related comedy in the tradition of Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" segment, Channel 4's The Eleven O'Clock Show, and the long-running Canadian series This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The Daily Show reports on the foibles and hypocrisy of the real world with a satirical edge. Since Stewart's entrance, the show has also developed a reputation as one of the sharpest political commentary shows on American television.

About this Wiki
This was prompted by the AFD on the original Wikipedia for the Daily Show episode lists. IN an effort to preserve the presumably unencyclopedic content and free the content from the questions of the Wikipedia community, it is mirrored here.
The original pages on Wikipedia were immensely useful and well maintained. It is hoped that this will transfer to here as well.
- Provide a place for Episode Lists of The Daily Show to exist without question.
- Expand to Episode Guides
- This may allow us to move back to Wikipedia, which is might be preferred.
- Expand to Colbert Report?
Much of the lists content is from Wikipedia.
