The Daily Show: The Jon Years from Comedy Central is a political satire news program that was hosted by Jon Stewart from 1999 to 2015. The show aired on weeknights on Comedy Central and was known for its witty commentary on current events and politics. It was a staple for many Americans who were looking for a humorous take on the news of the day.

The show's format typically began with a monologue by Stewart, in which he would address the day's biggest news stories. This was followed by a daily guest who was often a celebrity or politician but could also be an expert on the topic being discussed. The interview portion of the show was often the highlight, as Stewart was known for his biting commentary and ability to get his guests to open up.

In addition to the monologue and interviews, The Daily Show also included segments that became staples of the show, such as "Indecision," "Moment of Zen," and "This Week in God." The show also tackled more in-depth and controversial topics through segments such as "Mess O' Potamia," which covered the Iraq War, and "Clusterf#@k to the White House," which focused on the 2000 Presidential election.

Stewart's tenure as host of The Daily Show was marked by some of the most memorable and controversial moments in the show's history. Perhaps the most notable was his coverage of the 9/11 attacks, during which he delivered an emotional monologue about the impact of the tragedy on the country. The show also gained national attention during the 2004 Presidential election, thanks to Stewart's frequent commentary on the candidates and the media coverage of the race.

Over the years, The Daily Show became a cultural touchstone, thanks to its unique blend of humor and news. It won numerous awards, including 23 Emmy Awards and two Peabody Awards. In addition to its success on TV, the show also spawned several successful spin-offs, including The Colbert Report and The Nightly Show.

Stewart's departure from The Daily Show in 2015 was a significant moment for the show and its fans. He was succeeded by South African comedian Trevor Noah, but many viewers felt that the show lost some of its spark after Stewart's departure.

Overall, The Daily Show: The Jon Years from Comedy Central is a must-watch for anyone interested in political satire and commentary. Its unique blend of humor and news coverage made it a cultural phenomenon, and its impact can still be felt today.

The Daily Show: The Jon Years is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (16 episodes). The series first aired on December 3, 2013.
