Jon Stewart to Return to Daily Show — But (Of Course) There's a Twist

Jon Stewart HBO

Couldn’t stay away, couldja Jon Stewart?

The former Daily Show host will return to the Comedy Central late-night seriesthis week, only this time, he’ll be seated on the other side of the desk.

Stewart will appear on Monday’s episode to exhort Congress to move on a Sept. 11 bill. The series tweeted the announcement, with a photo, on Monday afternoon…

… which new host Trevor Noah then followed with his own take.

In August, Stewart signed off after 17 years as Daily Show host with a final episode that included tons of correspondents past and present, celebrity cameos and a performance by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

The bill, of which Stewart has been an advocate for some time, would ensure that health and compensation programs for Sept. 11 first responders would continue. Some of those programs began to expire this year.
