A series of entertaining and amusing segments featuring stars who've been inspired by Stewart or had their own careers launched through association with him. But also entertainers like The Boss were there to appreciate Stewart's work. The opening with Springsteen and Gary Clark Jr. Featured a superb cover of a Beatles classic.
Stewart talked about the hope we are getting back to normal, and getting back to honoring non-essential workers. The show is typical of Jon Stewarts work: a mix of comedy and talk with serious purpose.
Stewart says, "Democracy is under threat. Authoritarians are the threat to comedy, to art, to music, to thought, to poetry, to progress, to all those things..." This program will offend supporters of authoritarianism but should be a pleasure for the remainder.
