"Roush Rave "
TV Guide
February 6, 1999

Silly and self-deprecating where his predecessor was smug and smirky, Jon Stewart brings a refreshingly low-key affability to the bad-boy shenanigans of Comedy Central's irreverent The Daily Show, where he replaced Craig Kilborn as host. Stewart can barely keep a straight face delivering the nasty punch lines, and the disparity between his mildly neurotic persona and the show's gleefully raunchy tone seems to add to all the irony. I often still hate myself for laughing, but with Stewart, I forgive myself more easily.
