Xena's web sites. It's a huge battle.

— Jon Stewart on the JSEB






Stewart Stalker Central


We're still working on this, so you can send corrections, but don't send dates yet. A confirmed event is one that was either covered by the media, verified by another reliable source (such as TV Guide or another well-run fan page), or witnessed by a reliable (i.e., no signs of looniness) JSIA member or visitor. Some dates may be one day off depending on what time zone you are in. For instance, a show like Nightline that airs at 11:35 pm in the Central time zone would technically air at 12:35 am the next day in the Eastern time zone. This is not consistent from listing to listing because, frankly, that's too much work. See the old TVography (not updated yet) for a general list of older Jon appearances.
