The Daily Show is an American late-night satirical television program that airs Monday through Thursday on Comedy Central in the United States. It originally premiered on July 21, 1996, and is currently the longest-running series original program on Comedy Central. The Daily Show was initially hosted by Craig Kilborn until December 17, 1998. Jon Stewart took over as host from January 11, 1999 until August 6, 2015. Stewart was succeeded by the current host, Trevor Noah, whose tenure premiered on September 28, 2015. The show has also utilized various guest hosts periodically throughout its run. A total of 3,122 episodes have aired, under all three of the tenures combined. During Stewart's tenure the show became more strongly focused on politics and the national media, in contrast with the pop culture focus during Kilborn's tenure. Describing itself as a fake news program, The Daily Show draws its comedy and satire from recent news stories, political figures, media organizations, and often, aspects of the show itself. The show typically opens with a long monologue relating to recent headlines and frequently features exchanges with one or more of several correspondents, who adopt absurd or humorously exaggerated takes on current events against the host's straight man persona. The final segment is devoted to a celebrity interview, with guests ranging from actors and musicians to nonfiction authors and political figures.
