Ahead of his return to The Daily Show tonight, Jon Stewart has revealed why he’s getting back behind his old desk.

Stewart, who will host Monday nights on Comedy Central, said he “very much wanted to have some place to unload thoughts as we get into this election season”.

“Who better to comment on this election than someone who truly understands two aging men past their prime?,” he joked.

Speaking on CBS Mornings, Stewart said he hopes to have a “catharsis” and a “way to comment on things and a way to express them that hopefully people will enjoy”.

“But as far as influence… just about everything I had wanted to happen over the 16 years that I was at The Daily Show did not happen, if you were hoping for influence.”

Stewart, who will be joined by The Daily Show’s correspondents including Desi Lydic, Michael Kosta and Ronny Chieng as well as Jordan Klepper hosting the rest of the week, touched on his Apple TV show, The Problem with Jon Stewart, which was canceled by the streamer.

“I thought I was going to do it over at — they call it Apple TV+. It’s a television enclave, very small. It’s like living in Malibu. They decided, they felt that they didn’t want me to say things that might get me in trouble.”

Stewart also praised the production team of The Daily Show, much of which is the same as it was when he left.

“The team are unbelievable. Jen Flanz runs a ridiculous ship, she knows what she’s doing in a way that is really impressive to watch and all of the writing staff and producers, it’s a building filled with incredibly talented people.”
