Trivia: The Daily Show

  • Cowboy Bebop at His Computer: Even Jon doesn't get it right all the time, such as his interview with David Barton about Barton's book on Thomas Jefferson being a strong Christian. Despite the Jefferson Bible being the one where all supernatural elements are removed, Jon never calls Barton out for blatant lying.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Walter George Alton, who played Puma Man (or was it "Pyewma Man"?), has since become an attorney, appearing in a 2005 segment about anti-lawyer activists.
  • Name's the Same: Don't confuse the host, Jon Stewart, with the Justice League character John Stewart. Believe it or not, Green Lantern: The Animated Series actually managed to get a joke in about this, as John Stewart in this continuity goes on to be the replacement for Guy Gardner.
    • Or the late folk singer John Stewart.
    • Or the Carolina Panthers running back Johnathan Stewart
    • Jon is the host of the show. John, on the other hand, is the British correspondent (and occasional host). Close enough. People sometimes misspell their names, which can cause some confusion.
  • Romance on the Set: Samantha Bee and Jason Jones are married.
  • The Pete Best: Remember when Craig Kilborn was the host? Yeah, me neither.
  • The Show Must Go On: Jon cuts his hand against glass, causing notable bleeding and ultimately requiring stitches? No reason to stop the sketch!
  • Throw It In: Most of the time, if Jon starts laughing, the segment just keeps going. Some guests (and even other reporters) go out of their way to force a laugh out of him.
    • John Oliver tripped and broke his nose while on a field report. They called back to the office and were asked, "Did you get it on camera? Good. Was it funny?"
