Plot Synopsis

Each weeknight (Mon-Thu) for 30 minutes, host Jon Stewart and the self-proclaimed Best F#@king News Team Ever lambast the news with highlights, commentary and an interview with one special guest. On Monday, June 10, 2013 at 11pm ET/PT, John Oliver took over as guest host for eight weeks, while Jon Stewart took a hiatus to direct his feature film, ROSEWATER.
On Thursday, August 6, 2015 at 11pm ET/PT, Comedy Central premieres the final episode of THE DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART, shortly after an all-day marathon (9:20am-10pm) of encore episodes. In Stewart's 52-minute final episode, he will welcome a number of surprise guests, including cameos from Sen. John McCain and Chuck Schumer. Join the conversation on Twitter using #JonVoyage.
