"Close-up: The Daily Show"

Jon Stewart returns to a regular TV gig at the helm of the popular news parody.

The insightful comic has been a busy man since his eponymous talk show was canceled in 1995. He's written a book, poked fun at his guest-host status on The Larry Sanders Show and is currently featured in two films (The Faculty and Playing by Heart). Now, he lends his talents to The Daily Show.

It's also a reunion of sorts for Stewart, who again teams up with producer Madeleine Smithberg, from his MTV and syndicated days. And, if Stewart's past achievements are any indication, it's a safe bet that the show's trademark wit will remain strong.
