Jon Stewart to Return to Your Screen

Jon Stewart, of Daily Show fame and much beloved on this Site, has signed a four year deal with HBO. This will be more than one project, the first of which will create current event analysis in a highly visual short clips, meant to be shared online. Unfortunately, sharing them may prove difficult, as the content will be exclusive for HBO GO and/or HBO NOW.

Is this incredible return an encore of greatness …… or will content viewing and sharing be too restricted to catch on virally, as John Oliver’s clips have. These clips from his show “Last Week Tonight” have been posted by HBO to Youtube for easier sharing. A clever trick, but one that does not appear to be repeated for Stewart.

More as the story develops.

Jarys Maragopoulos
Jarys Maragopoulos grew up in the suspiciously isolated Ojai valley. Having acted in about a dozen plays as a child, including radio comedy routines, Jarys escaped with a College acceptance letter they had forged out of a hallmark card and octopus Ink. They rode the trains and learned the way of the hobos until arriving at the idyllic city of San Francisco, home to Jarys' dreams. At the University of San Francisco, where they won a Bachelors in History from the Dean in a Kung Fu match, Jarys met their two best friends and stopped blushing when they told people their favorite movie was “Return of the Jedi”. Since that time Jarys has earned their teaching credential (without resorting to thaumaturgy), collected a small library, learned Sumerian, and fell in love.
That list is not causal, they promise.

[Jarys is Genderqueer and, consequently, uses they/their/them pronouns.]
