Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee

8.02.2005

Paul over at Public Brewery has posted the results of a research project about the Daily Show.

If you're a regular viewer, the findings will make a lot of sense. It's interesting to see the content broken down into percentages as it gives you a window into how Jon Stewart and the producers approach the show itself.

Thanks, Scott. As a regular viewer myself (if that wasn't obvious already), I wasn't terribly surprised by how things turned out. I do think, however, that the results provide a counterpoint to folks who complain about how the young 'uns only get their news from Jon Stewart.

I remember when Craig Kilbourn started the show with Liz Winstead and it was alright. When Kilbourn left and they brought Stewart on, they really broadened the scope of the show for the better.

Agreed. From what I understand, Stewart insisted on adding more substance (I think it shows that he's more into interviewing the serious guests than the entertainers promoting their latest projects).
