Jon Stewart is set to make his way back to The Daily Show after 9 years. The TV host quit his position in 2015 after feeling “burnt out.” But now the comedian has said he has “reinvigorated” himself to return to the show. Stewart will host the show on Mondays alongside Ronny Chieng, Michael Kosta, Jordan Klepper, and Desi Lydic, who take over the other nights. 

The Daily Show is aired on Comedy Central. While the fans are quite invested in the show, the makers are planning on getting other content to repeat their Emmy win. 

What did Jon Stewart say about returning to The Daily Show?

Stewart made an appearance at the FYC event of Comedy Central, where he met with the other correspondents and spoke about his return to The Daily Show. The comedian said, “I walked away 9 years ago because I was burned. But now I don’t feel that way. I feel reinvigorated; I’m with people that are unbelievably talented and dedicated, and what they talked about in that morning meeting—people ask if you missed having a platform like this and that—I didn’t miss anything but walking into the room and having those smart, funny people.”

The host has also stepped up to be an executive producer of the show while also calling it a “ridiculous gift.” Stewart shared that The Daily Show is a place where one could jabber all they wanted for the audience for 25–35 minutes straight.
