2000 - From the Comedy News Headquarters on the Internet, it's THE DAILY SHOW WEEKLY, hosted by Vic Shuttee and Chandler Dean. What a difference a year makes for hapless talk show host Jon Stewart (Half Baked), taking his little watched cable property up 400% over the course of this Peabody-winning season. From the developing stories of Elian Gonzalez and TV’s reality explosion, to the powder keg of a 38-day Too Close To Call Presidential Election, The Daily Show found some solid ground in uncertain times. Along with the Daily Show Press Corp including Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Vance Degeneres and more – the show traveled to Philadelphia, Los Angles and the format of LIVE TV, with successed and failures along the way. Catch-up on 12 months of Comedy Central circa 2000, with this audiobook presentation’s month at a glance view featuring the highest highs, lowest lows, and the oddest oddballs. Part 1 of 2. The Daily Show Weekly is an unofficial fan podcast designed to serve as a critical companion to the original series, which can be watched in clips at CC.com. Our thoughts and criticism are intended to offer historical reflection and enhance the viewing experience for new and old fans journeying through Jon Stewart’s seminal talk show run.
