Instead of a straight-up NewsParody, a la ''[[SaturdayNightLive Weekend Update]]'', the program merely relates the actual news in a humorous tone, with special attention paid to the antics and gaffes of politicians and public figures, as well as the reactions of major news shows (particularly [[TwentyFourHourNewsNetworks 24-hour news channels]]) which range from the theatrical to the absurd.

The main anchor is currently Trevor Noah (who took over in 2015, replacing Jon Stewart, who in turn took over in 1999, replacing [[ThePeteBest Craig Kilborn]]), but it's launched a few careers among its correspondents. Creator/SteveCarell and Ed Helms are successful alums, and Creator/StephenColbert got his own {{spinoff}} program called ''Series/TheColbertReport'' (a parody of confrontational talk programs such as ''TheOReillyFactor'') which became a runaway success leading him to be picked [[Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert to take over]] for Creator/DavidLetterman. Two other ''Daily Show'' alums were given their own Comedy Central shows, Creator/LewisBlack's ''[[Series/RootOfAllEvil Root of All Evil]]'' and the critically acclaimed ''Series/ImportantThingsWithDemetriMartin''. The show's writing staff has also published two books in connection to the show, both parodies of high-school textbooks; they are ''[[Literature/AmericaTheBook America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide To Democracy Inaction]]'' from 2004 and ''[[Literature/EarthTheBook Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide To The Human Race]]'' from 2010.

* EveryEpisodeEnding: "Here it is, your moment of zen." During Kilbourne's run, the clip was usually a ridiculous or surreal non sequitor, while Jon Stewart and Trevor Noah have both used a funny or ironic news clips that is usually related to something covered previously.
* RecycledSet: When Stewart made his debut, the set was exactly the same as the one Kilborn used at the end of his run as host. Averted with Trevor Noah's run, which features a new set and all new graphics and logos.
