Tonight marks the beginning of a new era on Comedy with the long-awaited premiere of Jimmy Kimmel Live! at 11:35ep tonight. To celebrate, we’ll be airing the premiere of Jimmy Kimmel Live! then continue showing new episodes until Jimmy retires or you guys lose so much interest that we’ll be forced to stop. The Daily Show will stay put at 11ep but The Colbert Report--which ends its run at the end of year--will move to 12:37ep. If you’re mentally unable to handle this shift, you can still watch Stephen at the usual 11:30ep over on M3. For those of you who are too cheap to buy a cable package, fear not because we’ll still be posting full episodes on this very website. We know that change can be scary sometimes, but with Halloween a mere 39 days away, you might as well start getting spooked now.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

This week’s guests could form one hell of a super hero team, with Nordberg handling intelligence and international relations, General Zinni on tactics and heavy artillery, Torres with the muscle, fielding an army of pit bulls and Johnson on tech and communications.

MONDAY: Jenny Nordberg (author – promoting book “The Underground Girls of Kabul: In Search of a Hidden Resistance in Afghanistan”)            
TUESDAY: General Tony Zinni (former Commander in Chief of the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) & author – promoting book “Before the First Shots Are Fired: How America Can Win Or Lose Off The Battlefield”)
WEDNESDAY : Tia Torres (pit bull advocate – promoting show “Pit Bulls & Parolees”)
THURSDAY: Steven Johnson (author – promoting book “How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World”)

Jimmy Kimmel Live!

We asked Jimmy if we could hand-pick this week’s guests in honour of our new relationship, but he didn’t think his American fans would be into seeing Justin Trudeau, a Danger Bay reunion, Ron McLean, Marilyn Dennis, Nardwuar and Ed The Sock with musical guests David Wilcox, Lee Aaron, Trooper and Serial Joe. Instead we get the usual Hollywood mega-stars and the biggest names in music, which is pretty good… I guess.

MONDAY: Courtney Cox, Music from Jason Aldean
TUESDAY: Viola Davis, Anthony Bourdain, Music from Tove Lo
WEDNESDAY: Patrick Dempsey, Good Morning America's Lara Spencer, Music from Young Jeezy
THURSDAY: Denzel Washington, Darby Stanchfield, Music from The Script
FRIDAY: Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Anthony Anderson, Music from Bastille

The Colbert Report

Comedy fans should set their DVRs for Wednesday’s show featuring Bill Cosby, while those who have full DVRs because they have no self-control should set their DVRs for Thursday where author Walter Mischel teaches you how to master self-control.

MONDAY: Tweedy (Album, "Sukierae")
TUESDAY: Naomi Klein (Author, "This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate")
THURSDAY: Walter Mischel (Author, "The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control")
