Jon Stewart drops debut trailer for his TV return, The Problem

Jon Stewart's small screen debut on Apple's streaming platform should be the first of many as part of his multi-year deal.


After stepping down from The Daily Show back in 2015, Jon Stewart has had a relatively quiet presence in the industry. However, in late 2020, it was announced that the prolific TV host will be returning to the small screen with a new show exclusive to Apple's streaming service, Apple TV+.

The Problem with Jon Stewart will premiere in September 2021.

The Problem With Jon Stewart is an aptly named TV show that will have one-hour long episodes taking a close look at current events and issues. Now, we finally have our first previous of it.

Here is our first look at The Problem With Jon Stewart

The Problem will serve as Stewart's first project under his multi-year deal with Apple TV+, and his first TV hosting gig in more than half a decade.

As mentioned earlier, Stewart is well-known for his time spent on The Daily Show, which is now hosted by Trevor Noah. After the Comedy Central series was hosted by Craig Killborn from 1996 to 1998, Jon Stewart would go on to appear as the face of the show from 1999 until 2015. During this time, the show picked up 20 Primetime Emmys.

Since standing up from his former post, Stewart has directed films and served as the executive producer on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where you can occasionally see him on the screen.

It looks like we won't have to wait too long to see the former Daily Show host return to TV.

Because it would serve as Jon Stewart's return to the small screen, The Problem would have received substantial hype as it is. But, it seems like this wasn't enough. He had to go and release a faux movie trailer for the movie, Cum Dog Billionaires. It comes with a timely spoof of Jeff Bezos' space flight with Jason Alexander standing in as the Amazon CEO, along with Tracy Morgan and Adam Pally appearing on the trailer, and a stray cat.

Speaking of appearing, the trailer also revealed that The Problem With Jon Stewart will premiere in September 2021.

Just try not to get your hopes too high up about how it will look. We doubt The Problem will look anything like the first teaser trailer that Stewart has shared.
