After recently castigating C4 for axing The Daily Show I was pleased to learn that Jon Stewart's demise has only been temporary. He will be returning to New Zealand television screens on Comedy Central, along with The Colbert Report, starting on April 6.
Both shows will be taken off the satellite, the same day as the American broadcast, and screened every weeknight.
It kind of makes you wonder whether Mediaworks did actually axe The Daily Show or Comedy Central just decided that it wanted its television show back.
Whatever - it'll be a welcome relief from the pap that TV1 and TV3 are serving up and which they laughably call 'news and current affairs'.
