The Problem with Jon Stewart marks Jon Stewart’s return to television after leaving The Daily Show in 2015. So when and where can late-night TV fans catch the new series?
The first episode of The Problem with Jon Stewart premieres on Thursday, September 30. The Apple TV+ series will then debut new episodes every other week.
September 30 also marks the date when Stewart’s corresponding podcast will debut. The podcast will release weekly, offering an extended conversation on whatever topic The Problem covers on air.
The Problem with Jon Stewart will be familiar to Daily Show and late-night fans in some respects while still looking a little different. The show focuses on political satire and current affairs. However, Stewart will tackle one topic per hour-long episode. Fans are used to this format from the main stories on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
Episodes began filming in front of a live studio audience back on July 14. That’s worth noting for anyone wondering why Stewart won’t cover this week’s news in the premiere episode.
Who’s working behind the scenes at The Problem with Jon Stewart?
As any late-night TV fan knows, a show is only as good as the team working behind the camera. Whether it’s Saturday Night Live, The Late Show, or Last Week Tonight, the producers and writing staff are just as important as the hosts and performers. There’s a reason it has its own category at the Emmys.
The Problem with Jon Stewart hired Brinda Adhikari to serve as showrunner and executive producer. Her previous job was with CBS Evening News, giving us an even better idea of the direction Stewart wants to take his new show.
Chelsea Devantez is the show’s head writer. She was a writer for The Opposition with Jordan Klepper.
Watch The Problem with Jon Stewart on Apple TV+ beginning Thursday, September 30.
