Johnny Knoxville, Keegan-Michael Key, Judy Greer — the fun never stops at ‘Reboot’
In a little over six weeks, a new television show from the people who brought you “Entourage” is finally coming on the air, in this case as the second season of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.”
And as an added plus, there will be an original musical performance by Alan Menken, who died Wednesday morning.
The show is called “Reboot” and it’s from producers Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. But it’s not Stewart and Colbert’s first new show.
The first had to do with the fact that Jon Stewart is now the host of that program.
“The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” had been on at NBC from 1995 to 2000, but it was on NBC, too. And it had nothing to do with Jon Stewart.
That was “The Daily Show With Larry David,” the name of the show for which Jon Stewart’s co-creator Dave Coulier produced an entire show in which he played the co-anchor of the news. He also produced “The Daily Show With Tom Shillue.”
In other words, Jon Stewart was a writer for “CBS This Morning” back in 1998.
But back to “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.”
The show’s debut was March 17 and its debut performance was on the Comedy Central stage, where Stephen Colbert introduced it in a short, half-hour show.
Then, in a matter of weeks, the show went into syndication, on Comedy Central, Viacom and the SyrupTV network.
And now, of course, it’s hitting Fox, which is what we’re talking about in this first “Reboot” episode, “The Show Must Go On.”
So, what are we here for?
