Jon Stewart Returning to 'The Daily Show' After Apple TV+ Series Cancelation

The news comes three months after Apple TV+ series "The Problem With Jon Stewart" was canceled due to alleged creative differences between Stewart and Apple executives. Apple was reportedly unhappy with some of Stewart's planned guests for season 3 of the series, as well as topics related to China and artificial intelligence.

Apple initially inked a multi-year deal with Stewart in 2020, and there were two seasons of the show. Stewart explored "problems" on the current affairs series, and episodes varied from news in the national conversation to issues that were part of Stewart's advocacy work.

Stewart will be hosting the series through the 2024 election cycle. In a statement, Paramount Media Networks CEO said that Stewart is the "voice of our generation" and that he will help "make sense of the insanity and division roiling the country as we enter the election season."

Meh, he is tired and will be endlessly partisan.
No, he won't. He is highly critical of the Democratic Party as well as media across the political spectrum.

His constant discussion on Corporate greed is so hypocritical. He commands a massive salary but talks about how greedy corporations are. He needs to look in the mirror at himself as well as the companies that employ him.
An entertainer commanding a large salary and massive corporations working in concert to enslave the working man (and woman) and effectively disenfranchise much of the populace are not at all the same thing. You're applying a false equivalency between the two that does not stand up to scrutiny.

Never let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Oh good I was hoping someone like him would bring clarity to what's going on in our country. I trust his analysis to be fair and unbiased just like the rest of the "comedians" made famous by mainstream network television.
