Excellent show that puts the truth back in context

The Daily Show is an excellent program that examines the news and makes light of the contradictions, stupidity, and senselessness that goes on in the world today. The show isn't all that bad, but there are some episodes that can be a bit 'iffy': - Words like ass, damn, hell, and bitch are sometimes used un-bleeped as well as other more extreme words that are bleeped out by Comedy Central. - Some news topics can be a bit mature, and because of that, some episodes can also be a bit mature (references to masturbation, molestation, prostitution, and other sexually explicit topics). All in all, the show usually has PG-level content (good for kids 8 & up, not that they'll get half the jokes) but can sometimes range to TV-14 level content depending on the topics that are brought up. I hope this review helped.

Now this is how you present the news!

I love how Jon Stewart makes fun of politicians and other important people while he does the news. Pretty smart of him, even though there are many topics that he talks about that are hard to understand! But hey, that's his comedy style!

Prepare to Laugh

The Daily Show is one of the best on TV. It is full of hilarious, shrewd sketches and comments on current political and social issues. The violence, language, and sex are really irrelevant if the viewer is old enough to understand the issues being discussed. Teens and adults.
