If you’re recording Jon Stewart’s last “The Daily Show” at 11 p.m. Thursday, set the DVR for an hour. Comedy Central’s schedule plans for at least a 50-minute farewell for Stewart, who’s leaving the show after 16 years.
Before Stewart says goodbye, Comedy Central will air a 12-hour marathon Thursday, starting with a repeat of Monday’s show with Amy Schumer (10:28 a.m. Thursday) and Tuesday’s show with Denis Leary (11:01 a.m.).
The reruns shows with Steve Carell (1:17 p.m.), Newt Gingrich (4:38 p.m.), Bill O’Reilly (5:38 p.m.), President Barack Obama (7:20 p.m.) and a special called “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: News Your Own Adventure” (8:56 p.m.).
See the full list of repeats on the Comedy Central schedule here.
As I wrote on my Must See TV: Jon Stewart’s Last Week On ‘The Daily Show’ blog Monday, long-time friend Stephen Colbert is expected to appear on Stewart’s last show Thursday, along with many surprise guests.
Stewart took over the late-night show from Craig Kilborn on Jan. 11, 1999. He has won 19 Emmys and two Peabody Awards.
“The Daily Show” resumes Sept. 28 with a new host, South African comedian Noah Trevor. Colbert returns to TV on Tuesday, Sept. 8, replacing David Letterman as CBS’ “Late Show” host.
