Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The

The Daily Show is a half-hour satirical "fake news" program produced by and run on the Comedy Central cable television network in the United States. The show premiered on Monday, July 22, 1996. It is hosted by Jon Stewart, who acts as news anchor (he took over for original host Craig Kilborn in 1999). Providing news-related comedy in the tradition of Michael Moore's TV Nation, Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" segment, and the long-running Canadian series This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The Daily Show reports on the foibles and hypocrisy of the real world with a satirical edge. The show has also developed a reputation as one of the sharpest political commentary shows on TV.

Dirty Jobs

Dirty Jobs

Each week, our brave host and apprentice Mike Rowe introduces viewers to a hardworking group of men and women who overcome fear, danger and sometimes stench to accomplish their daily tasks. With his hands-on approach, Rowe assumes the duties of the jobs in question working alongside rattlesnake catchers, fish processors, bee removers and other professionals performing the vital yet outlandish occupations that simply must get done. A tremendously good sport, Rowe knows that whether it's serving greasy slop to pigs in Iowa, or picking up five-day-old road kill and transporting it to a crematorium, it's all part of an honest day's work.
