Additional Notes

From The Publisher*For sixteen years (1999-2015), The Daily Show was a game-changer in television, blurring the line between opinionated news reportage and comedy. It launched careers, lampooned legions of public figures and garnered 18 Emmys. Now the fascinating behind-the-scenes antics, controversies and relationships will be chronicled by legendary host Jon Stewart and the players themselves. Starting with the inception of the show and Craig Kilborn's turn as host, this history will cover the groundbreaking election coverage, Jon's famous monologue in the wake of 9/11, confrontations with John McCain and Hillary Clinton, The O'Reilly Factor, the war with CNN and every satirical moment inbetween, including legendary cast members Samantha Bee, Stephen Colbert, Lewis Black, Jon Hodgman, Steve Carell, Larry Wilmore, John Oliver and a foreword from Jon Stewart.
