A still of the show from 1996

Status: Partially Found

The Daily Show is an American late night talk and news satire program that was created by Madeleine Smithberg and Lizz Winstead and premiered on Comedy Central on July 22, 1996. The show was hosted by former SportsCenter anchor Craig Kilborn for the show's first couple years before being replaced with comedian Jon Stewart in 1999. The show is currently hosted by comedian Trevor Noah after he replaced Stewart in 2015. The show is a parody of conventional newscasts with comedic monologue of the day's headlines and mockumentary style on-location reports, in-studio segments and debates from the show's regular correspondents. The show also includes special guests that would come on to promote a project they were apart of or perform.

The show originally premiered as a replacement for the controversial Bill Maher program Politically Incorrect (which was gonna move from Comedy Central to ABC after 1996) and while it was compared to the Weekend Update segments from Saturday Night Live[1], it did receive positive reviews despite being last place in the ratings[2]. It wasn't until Stewart took over as host and executive producer that the show became a critical success with it's coverage of the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections earning the show a new level of respect[3].

Episodes from the start of Stewart's tenure[4] to present day[5] are available to view online at Comedy Central's website, but Craig Kilborn's tenure was not made available and very little of his run as host has survived.

Kilborn's Departure[edit | edit source]

The exact reason why Kilborn's episodes were left out of streaming releases of The Daily Show is unknown, but it may be down to the behind the scenes tension between Kilborn and the female staff at the time. Co-creator Lizz Winstead was not involved with the hiring of Kilborn and the two would have a lot of disagreements over the show's direction. Things intensify after Kilborn made a sexist joke about Winstead in a 1997 Esquire magazine interview comparing that Winstead was so attracted to him that she'll do to him what Monica Lewinsky allegedly did to President Clinton. Kilborn ended up not getting paid for a week because of the joke and Winstead's departure would follow[7]. Kilborn's departure was announced the same time, Worldwide Pants would choose him to replace the late Tom Snyder as host of CBS's The Late Late Show and Jon Stewart was announced as Kilborn's replacement on The Daily Show.[8] Even though she was no longer with the show, Winstead supported the choice to hire Stewart and praised the show after Stewart's first episode aired[9]. After Kilborn's final episode aired, his episodes would be reran until Stewart's tenure premiered on January 14, 1999[10]. Even though Kilborn's tenure is mostly forgotten, he did appear in Stewart's final Daily Show episode in August 2015[11].

Avalibilty[edit | edit source]

Of the 386 episodes from Kilborn's tenure that were made and aired, only one of them has surfaced in it's entirety. Various clips from other episodes and promos have surfaced online in the years since. The show's intro and Jon Stewart's first interview from the show's first season have also surfaced online. Given the behind the scenes drama surrounding Kilborn's tenure and the genuine unpopularity of his run, it's extremely unlikely his entire run will ever resurface.
