JULY 19, 2017 - BUH-DUN-DUN-DUH-NUH! From the Comedy News Headquarters on the Internet, it's THE DAILY SHOW WEEKLY, hosted by Vic Shuttee and Chandler Dean. After 41 weeks and 160 episodes, Jon Stewart’s first year on the job is coming to a close, just in time with the end of the universe and such (Y2K’s coming, people). So, these final two episodes are treated like a final exams – does Jonny pass, or (god forbid) are we gonna have to do this whole year again? There’s intrigue: as a potential plagiarism scandal unfold with Nancy Walls’ second segment “Turkish Delight.” There’s also some good old fashion awkward interviews afoot, with not-so-professional-impressionist David Boreanaz and the frequently mocked ‘poet snoreate’ Jewel. And, of course, to remind you that we’ve learned nothing: we’ve got Monkeys Humping. That’s a rap on ’99 folks – see you in the next millennium! 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.
