From The CC Insider…
As Jon Stewart mentioned on last night's Daily Show, this week marks his tenth anniversary as host of the show.
On the one hand, where did the time go? On the other hand, it's hard to remember what life was even like before we had The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to rely on four nights a week. And on another hand, holy shit, I have three hands.
Anyway, it seems like a good opportunity to look back at Jon's first ever episode and get a sense of how much he, the show and we as a country have changed. I was going to assemble all the clips in order, but when I rewatched the show, I was struck by Jon's Hastily Thrown Together Editorial, in which he welcomes himself to the show.
The theme of the segment is "change," which rather serendipitously gives it even more resonance this particular week. Funny how things happen. So, I'm starting with that clip.
