The Daily Show and The Colbert Report Return With All-New Episodes January 7 on The Comedy Network; Tom Green’s House Tonight Takes Over 10 o’clock time slot

It’s official. The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are back doing what they do best. Beginning Monday January 7, with all new episodes, Stewart and Colbert will return to the airwaves to report on the issues of the day and tell it like it is, hard, straight and funny! Both series will return to their regular schedules, Mondays through Thursdays, first with The Daily Show at 11 p.m. ET/PT followed by The Colbert Report at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on The Comedy Network. Meanwhile, The Comedy Network’s newest nightly talk show, Tom Green’s House Tonight, takes over the 10 p.m. ET/PT time slot, Mondays through Fridays, premiering January 7, exclusively on The Comedy Network.

Beginning Monday, January 7, 2008 The Comedy Network’s 10-12 a.m. midnight block is as follows (check local listings):

10-11 p.m. ET/PT: Tom Green’s House Tonight (Mon-Fri)
11-11:30 p.m. ET/PT: The Daily Show (Mon-Thurs)
11:30 -12 a.m. ET/PT: The Colbert Report (Mon-Thurs)

The return of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report marks the end of a two-month indefinite hiatus which began November 5, when the Writers Guild of America began their now nearly eight-week old strike. Although still without their writers, both shows are hopeful for a speedy resolution. Launched in the summer of 1996, The Daily Show is a nightly news parody that takes a reality-based look at news, trends, pop culture, current events, politics, sports, entertainment and the media. In each show, Stewart and a team of correspondents comment on the day’s stories employing actual news footage, tapes field pieces, in-studio guests and on-the–spot coverage of important news events.
