    I love the O'Reilly / Stewart feud. You know it's a "creation" but it's still funny. I really think those two are friends and some of the best moments on TDS is when O'Reilly shows up.

    Maybe I'm blowing this out of proportion. Just seems like a lot of FNC bashing lately. But maybe they just give him SO much material and he can't help himself :)

    Seems like this.

    How can you NOT comment on what the most watched cable news channel is saying every day, especially with the absolute softballs they're throwing up...

    Shoot. Everyday I yearn to subscribe to AppleTV.
    Nice bump, BTW.

    I'm on a free year, but right now, I've found quite a bit to watch on ATV+ Depending on the timing and length of the JS series, I may wind up extending once the year is up.

    I really miss that guy. He's probably kicking himself for quitting after DJT got elected. The material literally writes itself so he wouldn't have to do anything but just relay it back to the audience and add his little jabs into the dialog. I stopped watching The Daily Show when he left, but just recently started watching it with Trevor Noah since the pandemic began (it's now called The Daily Social Distancing Show). I wish I had continued watching it even after Jon left because Trevor does a great job with it, albeit a bit different than Jon would. I love political satire in any form because the reality of it is such a joke these days anyway.

    Yeah, without getting political (the leanings of the show are obvious), I thought TDS w/JS was at its best during the GWB presidency. Regardless of party, Obama wasn't as fertile a source for satire.

    Technically, the same effect happened for Rush Limbaugh. When Bush I was president, he didn’t have as much material to rile up and, hence, attract listeners.

    I get the impression he's really not. If you google John Steward Turd Mining, and find a video of where he guest interviews Stephen, you get the impression he's thrilled to not have to deal with it.

    Now that said, if he's getting back into the business, maybe he misses it more than he admits. Or, he may only be getting back into the game on the condition that things become less absurd, and the entire show may have a clause in the contract that says "Offer Void for four* years if Trump gets Reelected".

    I hope they post highlights to YouTube or something. Like Last Week Tonight does. I'm not subscribing to another thing. Not that I even have anything I can watch it on other than a PC browser.

    Are they still giving out the free year of ATV with a new phone? Because my son just got a 12, and if he gets the year, we'll just use his account.

    edit: I guess they do, and you have 90 days after getting the phone, which will dovetail nicely with mine expiring.

    It doesn't sound like this is the case for you, but bear in mind that there is only one freebie per family unit if you are using Family Sharing.

    edit: found it. Looks like we are in a Family group. :(
