How The Daily Show Progressed From Fart Jokes Into a Lean Satire Machine

  On June 26, Comedy Central began streaming every single episode of The Daily Show under Jon Stewarts tenure, an event it deemed the Month of Zen: an uninterrupted deluge of satirical news running 24/7 for more than a month.
