MAY 17, 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. Amid investigation for collusion with Russia, Donald Trump has fired FBI director James Comey - the man investigating him! The fallout has been swift, and the impeachment bells are ringing. Woof. In Daily Show News, Stephen Colbert hosted an mini-reunion of the gang on the Late Show: Samantha Bee, Ed Helms, Rob Corrdry, John Oliver and old Jonny Stew himself. In hindsight, the TDS years were all gravy. But back in '99, it is a bit of a different story. After 100 episodes of Jon Stewart, even if the hits are light, we're heading in the right direction. Vance Degeneres disappears in "The Blair Project Project," Russia gets a new (supposedly temporary) dictator in Vladimir Putin, and Steve Carell goes sea monster hunting in Lake Champlain. Bebe Neuwirth, Garry Marshall, Denis Leary, Jeffrey Tambor, Dave Foley, Dom Irrera, Pierce Brosnan, Ed Sanchez & Dan Myrick, and the flood gates open as Jon welcomes back his very first two-time guest. Who could it be??? 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.
