Storyline

Providing comedy/news in the tradition of TV Nation and SNL's Weekend Update, Comedy Central's Daily Show reports on the foibles and of the real world with a satirical edge. In addition to news stories, the Daily Show also has celebrities (and semi-celebrities) on for interviews with the host, Trevor Noah. Lampooning everything from televangelists to Charlton Heston ("I did not play a homo in Ben-Hur"), and shamelessly assigning faux-news epithets ("Newt Gingrich: Giant Toddler") Kilborn, Winstead, and the crew actually manage to report some real news from time to time.

Trivia

When the original host, Craig Kilborn, would conduct the celebrity interview segment of the show, it would conclude with the infamous 5 Questions, in which the guest would answer a series of five questions that were a combination of completely obscure facts and totally subjective opinions tailored to the guest. The format of the questions usually contained a geography question, a fill-in-the-blank style question where the guest was asked to fill in the blank with a word related to the guest, and a question in which the guest had to guess what Craig Kilborn was thinking at the moment.

Easily the funniest late night talk show on the air
7 November 2001 | by (Eau Claire, WI) – See all my reviews

This is a great show. Stewart has the perfect sense of humor to deal with the outrageness of his correspondents. He remains the center of sanity as reporters like Colbert, Carrell, and Rocca act in the strangest of ways. The seriousness that their interviewing subjects show is absolutely amazing. They pick on everyone equally. If the Onion had a TV show, this would be it. The only area were the show could slightly improve is Jon's interviewing technique. He doesn't match up with Conan as far as getting funny stuff out of the celebrities, but he is better than most. This show is absolutely incredible and I hope it lasts forever.
