Wow, well there have been some incredible goings-on in the world of Jon Stewart/"The Daily Show", and so I am very pleased to be sharing them with all of you. First of all, however, I would like to welcome our newest member Willow, who made a post just the other day. Welcome, Willow (willow1967)!
Second order of business--the 2005 Emmy Nominations! Yes, "The Daily Show" has received a total of FOUR nominations this year, to which I say CONGRATS, TDS! You earned it! The following are the categories in which TDS is nominated and the other nominees that it is up against (courtesy of http://www.emmys.org and placed behind a cut for convenience):

The second announcement I would like to make is that "The Daily Show"'s Stephen Colbert has officially been given his very own show by Comedy Central! Yes, Stephen is now the star of "The Colbert Report", a new series set to begin airing in approximately September. It will air either directly after "The Daily Show" Monday through Thursday, or in the slot right after that (Comedy Central is trying to decide between "The Colbert Report" and Adam Carolla's new show). Sadly, this will mean that Stephen will have to curtail his appearances on "The Daily Show", and while he will be sorely missed, we wish him the best of luck with "The Colbert Report." Congratulations, Stephen!
All of the information in the previous announcement was taken from an article written by the Associated Press, which I found on the MSNBC website: http://msnbc.msn.com/id/7726510/
Well, that's about all for now, gang. One final note: as the regular devotees of "The Daily Show" have no doubt noticed, TDS is now being filmed on a brand-new studio. While this change certainly does not waver our enjoyment and love of the show, like all changes in life, it will take time to get accustomed to it. Whatever your feelings about the new studio--positive, negative, or indifferent--I invite every member of stewart_harem to reply to this post and talk about it, if you so desire. Thanks everyone for reading, and I hope you've enjoyed this update!
