Comedy Central wants you tell your friends that you won’t see them again until August. Why? Because the network is streaming a 42-day marathon of “Daily Show” episodes on its website, that’s why.
Starting Friday (June 26) at 12 p.m. ET, Comedy Central will begin a continuous stream of every single episode — that’s over 2,000 episodes! — of “The Daily Show.” The everyone-loves-Jon-Stewart festivities will kick off with the show’s 1999 premiere and continue chronologically from there, which means you better be ready for a lot of 2000-inspired jokes.
The marathon, which is being called “Your Month of Zen” — although staying awake for 42-days straight isn’t the most zen thing ever — will end on the night of Stewart’s last show on Aug. 6. Aka, now is the time to stare at Stewart’s face before he heads off into the deep abyss and is replaced by Trevor Noah.
Fans looking to take part in this epic marathon can tune into Comedy Central’s website or app to watch as many episodes of “The Daily Show” as they possibly can. The network is also set to air “News Your Own Adventure,” a one-hour special hosted by correspondents Jordan Klepper, Hasan Minhaj and Jessica Williams which will feature fan-voted segments from the series.
