Obviously, Jon Stewart wasn’t done with television when he retired from The Daily Show. The recently bearded comedian will be returning to the screen after signing a four-year contract with HBO. Very interestingly, he’ll be focusing on short form—and very shareable—digital content.
On September 12, 2000, Jon Stewart started The Daily Show’s Headlines segment with the following joke: “The GOP accused of using subliminal advertising. Bush says, ‘Why would we advertise underwater?’” After a run of jokes about then-candidate George W. Bush, Stewart chuckles, “He’s making it so easy.”
Last night's episode of The Daily Show featured MIT Media Lab instructor David Rose talking all about connected objects and his new book, Enchanted Objects. The hilarious interview left Jon Stewart in awe over the new frontier of tech.
The Mars Rover Curiosity has been a huge success thus far, inducing cheers and high kicks across the nation. Jon Stewart is just as excited.
Foxconn, Apple's manufacturer of things you likely own and Chinese despair, was last night's corporate target on The Daily Show. It's funny! But then it alternates between funny and Oh wait, this is true and awful. But then funny again!
At this point you might be sick of reading about Walter Isaacson's new mega-seller, but what about watching Jon Stewart tackle the book? Of course it's interesting. Stewart sat down with Isaacson to talk Steve and make a Zune joke.
The Golden Globes are arguably the most self-fellating award show in the galaxy. Ricky Gervais and friends (possibly including Louis CK, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, and Larry David) might just live-stream a commentary track. Oh hell yes.
Bill Gates is about the most mild-mannered and genuinely nice, um, unbelievably rich head of a multinational monolithic corporation that you could imagine. So why is Jon Stewart antagonizing him with anti-Zune and pro-iPhone barbs? Oh, right. Because it's funny.
Comedy Central's two-pronged comedic attack on news is finally going HD (1080i, actually) on January 4th. Apparently continually filmed daily shows like these two take longer to upgrade the control room, which is why it took so long—but get ready for some HD satire early next year. [Engadget]
Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart spit in the face of real-world sci-fi by applauding the U.S. Military's elimination of its laser plane project. A plane. That shoots lasers. What's the problem, Stewart?
Jeff Bezos brought a Kindle 2 to the Daily Show last night, where Mr. Stewart lobbed some pretty hefty criticism at it. And all Bezos could do was laugh like a gassed hyena.
Discussed within: Asimov's Laws, Microsoft Word as the downfall of robot rebellion, Astro Boy, robots with hearts of gold, Jon Stewart's embarrassing film career, and Japan's decidedly adorable robot culture. Watch after the jump.
Viacom wants Time Warner Cable to pay more for its channels, like MTV and Comedy Central. TWC doesn't want to pay. So on Jan. 1, they could all go away for TWC subscribers.
If you didn't watch Jon Stewart yesterday, check out his hilarious take on Black Friday, recession, and people's stupidity fighting for silly things. His purchases: a wobble-headed C-3PO doll and, get ready, the Lego Millennium Falcon*.
Never before has the futility of watching films on such a tiny screen been so well encapsulated as when Jon Stewart enjoyed Lawrence of Arabia on the Oscar stage last night. If you missed it, we won't spoil the joke for you. But even after Stewart's cultural nod/low blow to the iPhone, Jobs got the last laugh as he…
Bill Gates, media darling that he is, awkwardly walked off the Daily Show set the other night before having his requisite fake chat with Stewart while cutting to commercial. Above, you can see Stewart use this faux pas as an opportunity to mock not only Bill G, but his Windows OS as well.
Everybody's favorite richest man in the world is going to be chatted up by Jon Stewart on Monday, the day before Vista rolls out. (Or one hour, if you swing by CompUSA.)
Sure, we report on plenty of goofy and questionable inventions here at the Giz, but this "Ten Fucking Years: Inventions" clip from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart takes it one step beyond even our wildest fever dreams.
