2002 - From the Comedy News Headquarters on the Internet, it's THE DAILY SHOW WEEKLY, hosted by Vic Shuttee and Chandler Dean. As 2002 wraps up, The Daily Show wrestles with its identity as wars overseas ramp up and the Midterms come in like an oh-so quiet beast. With new players like Rob Corddry and Ed Helms finding their grooves as correspondents, can others from the previous generations survive - where does the show make time for the likes of Lauren Weedman, Matt Walsh, and Nancy Walls? Plus, as the elections come to a close, the show does a fabulous week in Washington DC and revamps the entire TDS homebase while they're at it. The big question is: with Jon Stewart remaining as host for the foreseable future, has a new era dawned past Death to Poochie? Catch-up on the last 6 months of the political comedy series that redefined a genre, with this audiobook special deep-dive presentation hosted by Vic Shuttee and Chandler Dean. Part 2 of 4. 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 enhance the viewing experience for fans new and old journeying through Jon Stewart’s groundbreaking talk show run.
