Politics and news can be a scary area sometimes, well, yeah almost all the time. Have you gotten to watch The Daily Show? New episodes are filmed Monday through Thursday in New York City. New episodes air of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central Channel on Monday through Thursday nights at 11:00 P.M. EST and you can usually catch rebroadcast of that show the next day at 10:00 A.M., 7:00 P.M., and 11:30 P.M. EST.
I am not much of a fan of talk shows, especially news talk shows, but I will admit that The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is one of my all-time favorites. I tune in constantly late at night and laugh over the latest things in the news. You probably won’t agree with everything that Jon and his crew do or say, but I am sure you will find most of it funny.
