The Daily Show Show Summary

Forget the 24 hour biased left wing news media, the best fake news show in the world will provide you with all the news you can handle.

If you're tired of the stodginess of the evening newscasts, if you can't bear to sit through the spinmeisters and shills on the 24-hour cable news networks, don't miss The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, a nightly half-hour series unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy. The Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Daily Show takes a reality-based look at news, trends, pop culture, current events, politics, sports and entertainment with an alternative point of view.

In each show anchorman Trevor Noah and a team of correspondents comment on the day's stories, employing actual news footage, taped field pieces, in-studio guests and on-the-spot coverage of important news events and finally interviews with guest celebrities and political figures.
