Jon Stewart is returning to “The Daily Show” to host Monday nights through this year’s presidential election. He’ll start February 12th.
As for the remainder of the week, it’ll be hosted by a team of correspondents.
An executive says, “Jon Stewart is the voice of our generation, and we are honored to have him return to help us all make sense of the insanity and division roiling the country as we enter the election season.”
Then added, “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.”
Jon was the host for 16 years from 1999 until 2015 when Trevor Noah took over.
