Jon Stewart returns Daily Show until election

After more than a year searching to find a new host, The Daily Show has tapped the man who built it into a media and show business institution to help forge its next chapter.

Jon Stewart, who hosted the program for 16 years before leaving in 2015, will return to The Daily Show as a part-time host and executive producer through the 2024 presidential election cycle. He'll lead the program on Monday nights beginning Feb. 12, leaving hosting on Tuesdays through Thursdays to the show's correspondents.

But, more importantly, Stewart and his manager James Dixon will serve as executive producers for all episodes through 2025. The announcement says Stewart will "shape [the] next chapter of the franchise" – whatever that means – effectively kicking the question of who might host the show permanently down the road, past the time when Americans will choose our next president.
