2000 - From the Comedy News Headquarters on the Internet, it's THE DAILY SHOW WEEKLY, hosted by Vic Shuttee and Chandler Dean. With the calendar filled with the best and the rest, let’s talk some turkey. We do our full breakdown of the 20 correspondents and contributors, and decide who deserves a raise, or a pink slip, It’s the last hurray for The Man Who Hosted Public Excess, while Steve Carell bends under the duress of producing half the show’s content. Stephen Colbert plays 7 months of hooky, Lewis Black gets unshackled (for a while) and Nancy Walls gets the opportunity to play hardball with the boys. Then, we get to 2nd Annual Dailys Awards for excellence in guest interview, field oddball, stories, episode and comedy segment. Over 166 episodes in the new millennium, we transition from the video libraries of #JustBarelyTelevision to the pseudo importance of the #JackassCronkite era. In the deepest conversation, The Daily Show Weekly’s 2000 in Review offer a demystified look at the great political satire boom in 21st Century America, while also having the requisite number of unfounded conspiracy theories to still be an internet show. Part 2 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.
