|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Indecision 2000 - Graceful Acceptance|
Jon Stewart had barely settled into his Daily Show chair when the 2000 election debacle took place. For those who felt disenfranchised by George W. Bush's victory over Al Gore through a lengthy recount and a controversial Supreme Court verdict, Comedy Central's Indecision 2000 was virtually the only place to turn. The drama surrounding the recount was perfect fodder for the show's up-and-coming writers and comedians, which at the time still included Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell. The segments involving this bright ensemble catapulted the show to national prominence and set the stage for The Daily Show's permanent place in the heart of the American political conversation.
