Jon Stewart made EW’s Power List

Age 40

Stewart’s called himself ”the fake Lou Grant of the fake news world.” Try this on for size, Jon: a real-world political-agenda setter and, along with Conan O’Brien, the future of late-night television. With a million people getting their nightly news fix from Comedy Central’s ironic-sardonic mock-Brokaw (and Emmy-winning) broadcasts, he’ll help shape the young-adult ethos in a key election year. Remember when we wondered how he’d ever fill Craig Kilborn’s shoes? Yeah, we don’t either.
