Jon Stewart Returns to "The Daily Show"

Sep 4 2013, 6:22am CDT | by ABC News Radio

Larry Busacca/Getty Images for NARAS(NEW YORK) -- After taking a three-month hiatus to direct a movie, Jon Stewart returned as host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show on Tuesday night.  

Sitting in his familiar seat, Stewart joked to the audience, "I've missed you so much.  You don't know what it's like in the real world.  Nobody applauds every stupid, little f***ing thing that you do."

Stewart also took a few moments to praise his summer fill-in, Daily Show correspondent John Oliver.  He brought out Oliver and told him, "I knew exactly how you would do.  I'm just so happy for you and happy for the show.  You did a great job."

After Oliver recapped the highlights of his stint as host, it was business as usual for Stewart.  His guest was Andrew Harper, head of the United Nations' refugee agency in Jordan.

Stewart had been in Jordan shooting a drama titled Rosewater.  In a nod to his recent whereabouts, Tuesday's episode of The Daily Show began with a sketch in which a bearded Stewart greeted Oliver and spoke in an odd Middle Eastern accent.

As Oliver tried to help Stewart return to his normal self by using a defibrillator, among other things, Stewart transformed into various characters, including a Southern man defending Paula Deen's use of a racial slur; a Smurf; Adolf Hitler; and Miley Cyrus, as she appeared at the MTV Video Music Awards.  Eventually, The Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert was called in to save the day.

After Stewart finishes out the week on The Daily Show, he will head to the Toronto Film Festival to shop his movie to prospective foreign buyers, according to The Hollywood ReporterRosewater, based on a true story, focuses on the arrest of a journalist in Iran while covering an election protest./>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>

Jon Stewart Mocks Joe Scarborough's Hypocritical Take On Hillary Clinton

Sep 17 2014 8:13am CDT | Source: Huffington Post

So is Hillary Clinton running for president? Like most of the 2016 hopefuls, she's dodged the question -- and that had MSNBC's Joe Scarborough calling out the former secretary of state. "If you're gonna run, just say you're gonna run and stop playing games," he demanded. Just one problem: As Jon Stewart revealed on Tuesday night's "Daily Show," Scarborough was playing the exact same game earlier this year ...

Jon Stewart Compares ISIS vs. Al Qaeda To Coke vs. Pepsi

The Islamic State is ripping through Syria and Iraq, and rapidly becoming the region's most feared terrorist organization. Or as Jon Stewart puts it, ISIS is "out-al-Qaedaing al Qaeda." "What we got here is your classic Coke vs. Pepsi situation," Stewart said on "The Daily Show" Tuesday night. "Two globally recognized brands competing for the same key demo ...

Jul 22 2014 9:25am CDT | Source: Huffington Post

What would Ronald Reagan do? Apparently, it doesn't matter because conservatives will remember it differently anyway. In his coverage of the crisis in Ukraine and the downed Malaysian airliner, Jon Stewart couldn't help but notice how quick the GOP was to blame President Obama, and wax nostalgic about how President Reagan handled a similar crisis with Russia much differently. Only, they're totally wrong about everything. Fortunately, ...
