‘The Weekly Show With Jon Stewart’ Podcast Sets Premiere Date

Three years ago at a glitzy investor presentation, Paramount unveiled plans to launch The Weekly Show with Trevor Noah.

The series never got off the ground, but an audio version hosted by new (and old) host Jon Stewart is launching soon.

The Weekly Show with Jon Stewart launches on all major podcast platforms on June 6.

The series will see Stewart dive into current events topics and feature a variety of guests, including newsmakers, authors and celebrities.

It is produced by Paramount Audio in association with Stewart’s Busboy Productions.

The Weekly Show with Jon Stewart is the latest Daily Show podcast following series such as The Daily Show: Ears Edition.

“After much reflection, meditation, and prayer, I have decided to extend my work week to two days,” Stewart said last month.
