The Daily Show Takes On Tuesday Voting

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

John Stewart introduced new Daily Show correspondent Wyatt Cenac Tuesday night, and he’s already a favorite of ours around here. Check out his exchange with Stewart.

Cenac: I mean, this election… it’s outlasted Bionic Woman. That’s stupid. How does something this boring not get canceled?

Stewart: Well, it didn’t get canceled. Election Day is Tuesday, November 4th. After that you won’t have to worry about it for another couple years.

Cenac: Wait, wait. Election Day — it’s on a Tuesday? Damn, that’s Beauty and the Geek night.

Stewart: Thank you, Wyatt.

Cenac: Hey, when’s this on?

Stewart: Tonight.

Cenac: Tuesday? Damn.

Do you know why we vote on Tuesday? Here’s the answer. To watch Stewart and Cenac chat, start the video below at the 3:32 mark. Thanks to Why Tuesday? Director of Photography Thomas Macker for the tip.
