What did we watch before The Daily Show with Jon Stewart? It's one of the funniest shows on TV. Way back in 2004, Stephen Cobert was still one of the Daily Show Reporters - hilarious stuff! I wonder if they'll do another set for last year's election.

Hilarious! Remember that this is before the Colbert Report, back when Stephen Colbert was doing interviews for the Daily Show and it's a riot. As someone who was not really a fan of Bush, I did originally find this funny in a depressing sort of way, but now that Bush is heading out I have much more of a sense of humor about it all! water under the bridge and all that.

"I was very excited to see that The Daily Show was finally coming to DVD. I understand it's difficult for this type of show to release a Season by Season box set but this seems like a good compromise for fans. It will include:
All 4 Democratic National Convention episodes which were taped at Boston university in front of a live audience.
All 4 Republican National Convention episodes which were taped at Daily Show Headquarters in NYC.
The first Bush/Kerry Debate entitled "The Squabble in Coral Gables" Really funny stuff.
The Daily Shows live coverage of Election Night 2004 entitled "Prelude To A Recount"
I can review all of these things honestly having watched the show since it's inception and having seen all of the above mentioned episodes. I've even gone to watch a live taping which I would recommend to anyone who lives within striking distance of NYC. The special pieces they did during the campaigns are truly funny from either side of the fence.
As for special features I really don't know but I hope that some of this information has helped."
One of the last refuges of sanity on television

"I certainly look forward to this release. The Daily Show was one of the few refuges of sanity during the awful election coverage of 2004. Every year I say it can't get any worse, but somehow it does. My hat is off to the team at The Daily Show for not only puncturing the balloons of the political candidates but the inflated egos of the news media as they stumbled over themselves in a pathetic effort to cover the election. Hard to believe that "fake news" sounds more genuine than "real news," but that is too often the case on The Daily Show."
For this uber fan -- Good, but a slight letdown . . .

"If you're a voracious fan of the show don't let my review discourage you (it wouldn't anyway probably . . .):
I love the Daily Show -- have watched it since its inception before Jon Stewart -- been to the tapings , etc. Stewart warns at the beginning of Disc 1 that the material is no longer timely -- I can easily live with that because 2-3 years from now it will still be interesting to recall (with laughter preferably) some moments from that crazed election of 2004.
My complaint is the extra material -- there's just not that much of it. How difficult is it to do commentary over 4 or 5, 3-4 minute long segments? Not very difficult at all.
I guess I hoped for better "extra stuff" in a debut disc from such a talented group of people. It may well have been that Com Central gave them little or no money to do the extras. I feel like it shows.
And I agree with the other reviewer -- don't like the Paramount "bug" in the corner of my screen either -- I payed my good money for these discs and shouldn't have to deal with that kind of perpetual blot on my tv screen.
And one more thing: Just want to make note that before the disc was even released, a few people here decided to celebrate and then rate the quality of the show (number of peabody awards, emmies, etc.) instead of using this space the way it is meant to be used -- as a space to rate THE PRODUCT. nuff said."
