Like previous seasons, new episodes will broadcast Monday through Thursday on Comedy Central at 11 p.m. CST, with new episodes becoming available the following day on Paramount+. The best way for cable-cutters to stream “The Daily Show” live online is through a variety of live TV streamers such as DirecTV and Sling TV, which both offer free trials. Comedy Central is also available to stream on Hulu + Live TV and Fubo TV.
After scuttling a months-long search for a new host, the Paramount Global network announced it had enlisted Stewart, who presided over the late-night mainstay’s most popular era, to serve as its host on Monday nights throughout the 2024 election cycle and to run the program. He is expected to play an oversight role at “The Daily” that could extend through 2025, and will start his on-air duties February 12. Various “Daily Show” correspondents will host the program Tuesday through Thursday nights, and Jen Flanz, the current executive producer, will continue her duties on the show.
“Jon Stewart is the voice of our generation, and we are honored to have him return to Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show’ to help us all make sense of the insanity and division roiling the country as we enter the election season,” Chris McCarthy, president/CEO of Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios, said in a statement. “In our age of staggering hypocrisy and performative politics, Jon is the perfect person to puncture the empty rhetoric and provide much-needed clarity with his brilliant wit.”
