Jon Stewart is making a return to this year’s Democratic and Republican National Conventions, with “The Daily Show” announcing it’ll broadcast from both gatherings.

The Comedy Central show will provide “on-the-ground coverage” from the conventions this summer, it announced on Monday.

Stewart, who returned as the Monday night host of “The Daily Show” in February and led it to its highest ratings in more than half a decade, will be a part of the full week of “Indecision 2024” programs.

The Republican National Convention is poised to be held in Milwaukee beginning July 15, while the Democratic National Convention will kick off in Chicago on August 19. 

“The Daily Show” has established itself as a fixture-of-sorts at the political conventions, first launching its “special election coverage” from the events in 2000.
