Watch Part one:
History and Legacy of “The Daily Show”
Comedy Central began airing “The Daily Show” in 1996. The first host was Craig Kilborn. Stewart took over in 1999. With Stewart at the helm, the comedy-satire show became more of a news source than the actual news for millions of Americans and people around the world. Stewart himself was viewed as more trustworthy than many real journalists.
“The Daily Show” also launched a number of careers and shows. Colbert was a correspondent on the show before launching the spinoff “The Colbert Report” before taking over “The Late Show” from David Letterman. Samantha Bee now hosts “Full Frontal” and John Oliver is the host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.” Meanwhile, Helms and Corddry have gone on to successful movie careers. Trevor Noah took over for Stewart at “The Daily Show” in 2015.
