I don't have AppleTV, but i watched a few clips on YouTube. I hope those are throw away clips b/c if those are the best bits, this show is doomed.

i dont have a particular beef with Jon Stewart, but its really tiresome to see these ¨good guys¨ talking about any political stuff in tv while also being kinda funny and hip and cool....its just...please enough of this shit.

I watched the first episode. it wasn't bad. seems to be The Daily Show with Jon Stewart sans suit and tie.

i didn't watch a whole lot of daily show when he hosted, but if the first episode of this new show is any indication of how things will go, it seems like he's using it as a platform to bring awareness to some orgs he's either helped start, or has worked with. in this episode's case...vets with respiratory illnesses from Iraq/Afghanistan.

His was so non-topical. Just absurdist and irreverent. I loved the head smashing gif at sign off, back before gifs were a thing.
