"The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"
Finale Thursday, August 6 at 11:00 PM on Comedy Central

          After 16+ years of Tutelage that Jon Stewart has provided us, we say “Jon Voyage” to “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”
 
          America has tuned in to TV's most irreverently relevant political and pop culture commentary on the Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." Led by Time Magazine's "Best Talk Show Host," the program has conquered the very world of media mavens and political blowhards it set out to parody.

          Jon's intrepid team of correspondents and commentators – including Jordan Klepper, Jessica Williams, Lewis Black, John Hodgman, Al Madrigal, Aasif Mandvi, Hasan Minhaj, Trevor Noah and Kristen Schaal – take the show out of the studio and brave the wilderness we call America, with field pieces and on-the-spot coverage of important news events.

          Whether they're skewering the day's breaking news, investigating the people, places and events that make America what it is, or ranting and raving on politics in their award-winning Indecision election year coverage, "The Daily Show" has earned its title as The Most Trusted Name In Fake News.
