A fake news show on Comedy Central that was once really quite funny, similar to Weekend Update on SNL. However, it steadily became less and less about general news and on-location segments with crazy people, and instead became more and more about just politics, until it was little more than left wing propaganda and frankly not even remotely funny. This change was largely due to the application of the Jon Stewart formula.
Man1: Do you remember when The Daily Show used to be funny?
Man2: Just barely. I have some very foggy memories in the back of my head of what The Daily Show was like before it started sucking bigtime.

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.

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!

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.

The last vestige of the "liberal media (truth)" that Republicans bitch about so much.
The Daily Show is the shit.
