THE DAILY SOCIAL DISTANCING SHOW
March 30, 2020  | By David Bianculli

Comedy Central, 11:00 p.m. ET

 
Last Friday, Daily Show host Trevor Noah, from the safety of his home, interviewed infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, in one of the best and most informative extended interviews with the doctor I’ve yet seen. And yes, I’ve been watching the daily presidential briefings. It was Fauci’s idea to reach out to prominent players in the social media universe, whose younger audience figures number in the millions, as an effective way to spread the word about how to behave, social distance-wise, to young people otherwise less likely to hear, absorb, and believe the warnings. And this week, Noah keeps up the focus, back on Comedy Central this week – still from his home – for a show he calls, for now, The Daily Social Distancing Show. When I typed that, my computer’s autocorrect program changed that title to The Daily Social Distraction Show, which, come to think of it, wouldn’t be a bad name either.
