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.
