THE DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART
June 22, 2015  | By David Bianculli

Comedy Central, 11:00 p.m. ET

 

Jon Stewart’s show after the shootings at the Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, SC, was no laughing matter. Like David Letterman in his first show after the 9/11 attacks, Stewart admitted he was in no mood to make jokes – and instead, just talked about it from his own understandably bitter point of view. It was a great moment of television, and another impressive career highlight for Stewart, who devoted the bulk of Thursday’s show to an interview with 17-year-old Pakistani activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai. Tonight’s guest may offer some laughs, but also should get political, especially about gun control: The scheduled guest is comedian turned U.S. Senator Al Franken. See our Video Worth Watching for Stewart's monologue.
