After almost a decade away, Jon Stewart is returning to host The Daily Show.

While the politically-sharp comic will only be sitting behind the desk one day a week,  Comedy Central's cynical take on the late-night template is sure to be a stalwart companion in the months between now and the next American presidential election.

If you're looking to keep up with all the latest Daily Show bits, jokes and monologues from Australia, your options are limited. It's not all bad news though. Here's everything you need to know to stream The Daily Show in Australia in 2024.

In Australia, the new season of The Daily Show is currently unavailable to stream when it comes to subscription services like Netflix, Binge and Stan

While the comedy series was briefly available to stream on Binge, that's no longer the case. Those looking to catch up on previous seasons of The Daily Show can do so via on-demand through platforms like of Apple TV.

That's the bad news. The good news here is that if you want to keep up with what Jon Stewart and the rest of The Daily Show crew have to say about the latest in the lead-up to this year's American presidential election, it won't cost you a cent.

Each segment of each episode is being uploaded as it airs and can be watched for free via The Official Daily Show YouTube channel. The version of the show you're watching is a little more fractured in form, but you're not going to miss out on anything too major if all you're after is whatever Jon Stewart has to say about the latest in American politics.

What is the Daily Show about?

Ever since Jon Stewart took the reigns in 1999, The Daily Show has been one of the most talked-about talk shows out on the air. In terms of tone, the Daily Show sits roughly in between The Colbert Report and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. It's aimed at political junkies, but it doesn't take itself too seriously.

Each instalment of The Daily Show is an irreverent bag of comedy bits and fun riffs that play off whatever flavour of insanity happens to be on offer in real-world politics that week. Plenty of now-famous comedians like John Oliver first got their name as "correspondents" on the series.

Jon Stewart handed over hosting to Trevor Noah in 2015. However, in the lead-up to the 2024 presidential election, the venerable host is back on board. During the other four days of the week, hosting is being shared across The Daily Show's roster of correspondents like Ronny Chieng and Jordan Klepper.

Commenting on Stewart's return to The Daily Show earlier this year, Showtime and MTV Entertainment Studios CEO Chris McCarthy said that it was an honour to have the venerable host make a return.

"In our age of staggering hypocrisy and performative politics, Jon is the perfect person to puncture the empty rhetoric and provide much-needed clarity with his brilliant wit."
