Jon Stewart is back with a new current affairs series streaming on Apple TV+, named The Problem with Jon Stewart. The show will air every other week, and there’s a companion podcast too. Here’s how to watch the new series …

Each episode of The Problem with Jon Stewart is an hour long and focuses on a single topic, relating to Stewart’s advocacy work and other issues with global consequences. Jon Stewart hosts the conversation in front of a live studio audience.

Although Stewart amassed his following during his award-winning tenure presenting The Daily Show with much satire and comedy, his new series has a more serious tone.

Stewart will still be his funny self, but it’s not meant to be joke-a-minute laughs. For instance, the first episode, ‘The Problem of War’, discusses the impacts of war on soldiers and support staff, as well as the (lack of) after-care support for veterans.
