Tim Clark26 June 2012
The invasion of US comedy shows continues today after it was announced that The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is set be broadcast on Comedy Central.
The show is returning to British screens on July 23rd after the UK arm of the U.S. Cable channel bought up the rights to screen it in the UK.
The show is set to return just in time for the start of the Presidential Election, and has been welcomed by UK fans who campaigned for it to return to UK screens.
Managing Director Comedy Central UK Jill Offman said: "I'm delighted to welcomeJon Stewart to his rightful home in the UK.
"The Daily Show is another example of our commitment to provide our viewers with the best content from the UK and US."
She added: "It's a stellar addition to our programming lineup which includes original commissions such as series 2 of Threesome and the recently-announced The Alternative Comedy Experience curated by Stewart Lee, as well as our lineup of US shows like 30 Rock, The Office, South Parkand Two and a Half Men with Ashton Kutcher."
