Comedy Central to stream more than 2,000 episodes of The Daily Show before Jon Stewart leaves
Jon Stewart’s tenure at The Daily Show is about to come to a close, but Comedy Central is looking to let fans indulge in as much of Stewart’s time behind the desk as possible before then.
Comedy Central has announced “Your Month of Zen,” a more than monthlong stream of over 2,000 episodes of The Daily Show. Episodes will begin streaming starting June 26 at 12 p.m. ET and last until 7:17 p.m. ET on Aug. 6.The stream will begin with Stewart’s very first episode hosting The Daily Show and will continuously stream on both the Comedy Central app and a Month of Zen website.
For those who’d rather their Daily Show nostalgia come in audio-only form, Comedy Central’s Sirius XM channel (channel 95) will air audio of the stream from Aug. 1 at 7 a.m. ET through Aug. 3 at 7 a.m. ET.
Last but not least, Comedy Central will air a one-hour special called The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: News Your Own Adventure, hosted by Daily Show correspondents Jordan Klepper, Hasan Minhaj, and Jessica Williams. The special will show a number of fan-favorite segments from Stewart’s time on The Daily Show, as voted on in a previous poll. The special will air on Aug. 2 at 9 p.m. ET.
Jon Stewart will conclude his run on The Daily Show on Aug. 6.
