Jon Stewart Returning To The Daily Show As A Host

Jon Stewart, the former host of The Daily Show, will be back. Trevor Noah hosted The Daily Show most recently from 2015 to 2022. 

After Noah's final episode aired on December 8, 2022, The Daily Show has seen a number of guest hosts.

Deadline reports that former host Stewart will be returning to The Daily Show. Up to the 2024 election season, Stewart will appear on the show once a week, but he won't serve as the permanent host. 

 Beginning on February 12, Stewart will return to the show as executive producer, helping to "shape" its future by overseeing all of the episodes through 2025.

The peculiar hosting arrangement of The Daily Show came back into the spotlight after the show won an Emmy for Outstanding Talk Series recently. 

While Noah was giving his winning speech at the Emmy event, former Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. mouthed the words, "please hire a host." This statement was directed at Comedy Central for their inability to find a long-term host more than a year after Noah left.

Comedy Central later revealed their plans for The Daily Show's next chapter after the Emmys. The Daily Show will switch to having its correspondents host in place of the 12 guest hosts who have alternated over the previous 13 months as a regular host.

Jordan Klepper, Michael Kosta, Ronny Chieng, and Desi Lydic are some of these correspondents that are currently serving.
