Daily Show fans, one of your favorite hosts has returned to the late night series. Just in time for the 2024 election, Jon Stewart is back on The Daily Show every Monday, starting last night! Stewart departed from the beloved series back in 2015, making way for Trevor Noah to step into The Daily Show’s spotlight. Since Noah’s departure in 2022, the satirical comedy series has struggled to find a new anchor, cycling through a series of guest hosts including Leslie Jones, Kal Penn and Sarah Silverman.

Meanwhile, Jon Stewart was working on his own Apple TV+ series, The Problem with Jon Stewart, which never quite found the widespread success of his 16-year run on The Daily Show, and was recently canceled. While Stewart will return to The Daily Show weekly on Mondays, the Tuesday through Thursday episodes will continue to see a rotating lineup of guest hosts.

“Jon Stewart is the voice of our generation, and we are honored to have him return to Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show’ to help us all make sense of the insanity and division roiling the country as we enter the election season,” Chris McCarthy, President/CEO of Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios, said in a statement.
