Jon Stewart has inked a deal that will keep him on the Comedy Central airwaves as host of The Daily Show through 2004 (just in time for the election). We donít know how much the 40-year old ìpro-potî host will receive for the extension, but we do know that The Daily is one of the smartest and funniest shows on television (SNL please take notice). Viacom recently bought the remaining 50 percent of Comedy Central from AOL Time Warner for roughly $1.23 billion and now has full control of the network which is home to South Park, Insomniac, and Chapelleís Show. Hopefully later this year, the untitled Stephen Colbert (Daily Show correspondent) show, which is executive produced and co-written by Stewart, will see the light of day. And now...your moment of zen.
