A show that used to be great. Jon Stewart was always funny, and it had Stephen Colbert as a field reporter. Then, Colbert left and The Daily Show got way too serious. Instead of clever written jokes, Stewart resorted to saying Bush is stupid a million different ways. The show is occasionally funny, just not as good as it used to be. Also, there are people who watch this to get their real news. If you watch it as a comedy program, that's fine(even though it isn't as funny anymore.) If you watch this show to get your news and opinions on things, you should be shot.
The Daily Show used to be great but now it is just average. The Colbert Report is much funnier, watch that.

The greatest television satire on American politics and the mass media.
The Daily Show is a very witty and informative show. Go buy the book!

The CNN of the independent minded.
While the Daily Show only flirts with integrity, CNN doesn't even have the courage to introduce itself.

one of the best "news" shows ever. John Stewart is the host. Main subjects are controversial politics and pop culture. Very witty and very entertaining. 4.95 out of 5 stars ****.++

An American satire news show that airs Mon-Thurs at 11/10c on Comedy Central. Features Jon Stewart as the anchorman, with a full correspondant team, including people such as John Oliver and, formerly, Stephen Colbert.

It was a lot more entertaining in the days of Colbert, even though Colbert wasn't that funny. Since The Colbert Report began to air right after, the writers for the shows have brought the writing down to one liberal (TDS) theme and one conservative (TCR) theme. I could personally do without all the bias on both shows, but, since the split, TDS has lacked personality, merely coming down to almost the liberal version of Glenn Beck.
I watch the Daily Show and the Colbert Report every night, to get both sides, and a good laugh in between.

Known for its comedic genius, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is actually the most watched "news" program by undecided voters
It's only a half-hour long, but it's hilarious as heck!
