Must read

Jon Stewart returning to host The Every day Present for simply at some point every week might have simply been a catastrophe, a Jay Leno-esque maneuver that allowed him to awkwardly cling to his previous job at the expense of the subsequent era of expertise

Fortunately, these fears have been largely allayed by Stewart’s efficiency. He slipped into The Every day Present desk prefer it was a snug pair of slippers again in February, and instantly dominated the zeitgeist by suggesting that the record-setting agedness of this 12 months’s presidential candidates was form of a difficulty. His first present again was a rankings bonanza, and a number of viewers have caught round ever since.

The query now’s: How lengthy is he going to do that for?

After all we’re nonetheless months away from a presidential election that may virtually actually drain the souls of even essentially the most informal observers, so we’ll have to attend and see whether or not or not Stewart nonetheless feels “reinvigorated” by the point November fifth rolls round. 

But when Stewart’s cooking proper now, and Comedy Central is pleased with the rankings, who might probably have an issue with him sticking round? Effectively, how concerning the different Every day Present correspondents/generally hosts? On the occasion, all of them spoke glowingly about Stewart, both out of real admiration for the comic, or as a result of shitting in your boss at a public occasion isn’t a sensible profession transfer.

Chieng mentioned that Stewart’s first episode again was like watching Michael Jordan’s NBA return within the ‘90s, additionally crediting him as the one who “invented trendy American satire.” In the meantime, Lydic quipped “They are saying by no means meet your heroes. I say meet your hero and instantly get on his payroll.” 

Klepper, however, mentioned that when he first obtained phrase of Stewart’s return, his first response was: “He’s nonetheless alive? What a reduction.” Presumably Klepper was complicated Stewart together with his character from The School, who will get syringed within the eyeball by Josh Hartnett.
