A Moment Of Zen For Jon Stewart's First Decade On The Daily Show


This week marks Jon Stewart‘s tenth year hosting The Daily Show, and to celebrate, Comedy Central is taking a look back and his very first show.

In some ways, not much has changed since Jon took over from Craig Kilborn on January 11, 1999. In his first show, Jon gives and editorial on the topic of “change” and covers congressional proceedings about a Clinton, though Bill’s trial was much sexier than Hillary’s confirmation hearing earlier this week. It’s clear that years of mocking Fox News and George W. Bush have taken a toll on Jon, but he was, and still is, the thinking woman’s ultimate fake news crush. [Comedy Central Insider]
