Jon Stewart may be one of the hardest working men on television, but it looks like he's about to take a break from hosting 'The Daily Show' for a few months. But he's not going on a vacation: he's going to direct a movie. 'Rosewater' will not only be Stewart's first time behind the camera, it will be something completely out of his regular wheelhouse.
The Daily Show
The events of September 11, 2001 will forever be engraved in American history as one of the most tragic events, and the most impactful moment of our lifetime. But while the country collectively grieved over the human casualties, none were more affected than the residents of New York City. It was there that the devastation occurred and it was there that the survivors, the families of the victims and the city itself had to rebuild their lives.
At the time, most couldn't find the proper words to address the situation, but despite this challenge, it was left to all the late-night shows and media outlets that we often turn to for guidance to help us make sense of 9/11 and help us move on.
Everyone loves the first major interview following a public and embarrassing celebrity moment. Some people can laugh at the humor of the situation, as Fred Willard did on David Letterman following his recent public masturbation arrest, but will Robert Pattinson let his icy vampire exterior warm during his first major public appearance following Kristen Stewart's embarrassing affair? Who will be the one to crack RPattz on KStew?
Huzzah, America! After being around seemingly forever, it would seem that 'The Daily Show' will be around quite a while longer, with its current and arguably best host to date in place. More than that, its sister show 'The Colbert Report' will be sticking around as well, but for how long? Does either series have a shelf life, or does Comedy Central plan to keep them around indefinitely?
