THIS DAY IN TV

Comedy Central’s The Daily Show debuted on July 21, 1996.

* First host: ex-ESPN anchor Craig Kilborn.

* It was conceived as a parody of news shows, but with a newsmagazine approach. Jon Stewart took over in 1999 and with a new writing staff, developed it into a satire of cable news and politics.

* Early features included “This Day in Hasselhoff History,” and “Last Weekend’s Top-Grossing Films, Converted into Lira.”

* Prominent former Daily Show “correspondents”: Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Ed Helms, and Demetri Martin.
