Happy Anniversary to TDS, by
Join Us! Take Over the World!
Look, there are only four of us. We
can only do so much. And frankly, we could use some fresh blood and new perspectives.
Send us an e-mail! Tell us about
how you fell for Jon! Give us an update on your stalking progress! Write some
fan fiction! Write a haiku!
We want to hear from you. Really!
I'm not kidding!
You can tell I'm not kidding
because I'm using a lot of exclamation points!!!
Submit something, even if it
sucks! Do it now!
Anyone who submits something we ultimately
publish automatically becomes a JSEB senator for a six-month term! Tell all
will be Jon's second anniversary as host of The Daily Show. If you were lucky
enough to have loved Jon back when he premiered as the show's anchor, you remember
that day well. Like most Jon fans, I thought Jon was so talented that he deserved
to be on television 24 hours a day (like Regis). I hunted down everything he
had ever done and tuned in for every interview. Then, one day, rumors started
to surface that Jon would take over The Daily Show . . . and we would get to
see him FOUR TIMES A WEEK EVERY SINGLE WEEK! And when it happened -- when it
became official -- I jumped with joy, kicked my heels, whipped my fist through
the air, then spent three weeks recuperating in the hospital with cracked heel
bones and a torn rotator cuff. It was worth it.
that first show, and almost every one since. Does anyone remember their favorite
moments on the old show? Remember the first time Jon collapsed his chair so
that he looked four feet tall? Wasn't it hilarious how much Jesus resembled
Kevin Costner? Remember when Jon analyzed how much anti-Semitism existed in
the Arab nations by testing them on the Jewometer?
Show audience has increased 400% since Jon took over (source: Who Wants to be
a Millionaire, Pop-Up Video version). Many pundits (many, despite Jon's dire
warnings that there may be a severe pundit shortage in the near future) claim
that the SNL presidential debate parody was the most politically influential
bit of pop culture last year. I disagree. I believe that prize goes to The Daily
Show. It took an election for people to really sit up and pay attention, but
look at what has happened. Jon is suddenly in demand on panels and in political
It has gotten to the point where Jon is almost a pundit himself, but unlike
the other pundits, you want him to stick around after the controversy is over.
with one of my favorite quotes, taken from an ad for TDS in 1999:
Show with Jon Stewart. Because sometimes ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX NEWS, MSNBC, CNN,
HEADLINE NEWS, CSPAN, and CSPAN 2 just aren't enough."
