Jon Stewart reveals why Apple TV+ canceled his show

TV


Jon Stewart is making it clear the real reason Apple TV+ canned his series, “The Problem With Jon Stewart,” last year — and it has everything to do with his mouth.

“I wanted a place to unload my thoughts as we go into election season,” Stewart told “CBS Mornings” Monday while explaining why he is joining “The Daily Show” as a Monday night host during the cycle 2024 election from February 12.

“I thought I was going to do it on — they call it Apple TV+,” he said of his old home network. “It’s a television enclave, very small. It’s like living in Malibu.

“But they decided…they felt they didn’t want me to say things that might get me in trouble.”

“The Problem With Jon Stewart” premiered in 2021 after Stewart signed a multi-year deal with Apple TV+.

“The Problem With Jon Stewart” aired for two seasons on Apple TV+.

Season 1 aired episodes every two weeks, while Season 2 moved to a weekly format.

The show was canceled in October 2023.

According to Variety, although it was reported at the time that Stewart’s divorce from Apple TV+ was amicable, behind-the-scenes intrigue led to his ouster.

The New York Times reported that Stewart and his bosses disagreed on what topics he would cover in season 2, including artificial intelligence and China.

Apple CEO Tim Cook was later questioned by members of the U.S. House of Representatives about whether Stewart’s departure was because he was planning an upcoming episode on China.

“While companies have the right to determine what content is appropriate for their streaming service, the coercive tactics of a foreign power should not directly or indirectly influence those decisions,” House Select Committee leaders said representatives on the Chinese Communist Party. wrote to Cook.

Stewart, 61, also told “CBS Mornings” that he returns to the “Daily Show” every Monday night because he wants to have a platform with which to share his opinions regarding the 2024 election.

“Who better to comment on this election than someone who truly understands two aging men who are past their prime? » he said, tongue firmly in cheek.

He also dismissed rumors about his influence on public opinion.

“But as far as influence goes… pretty much everything I wanted to happen in the 16 years I was on ‘The Daily Show.’ It didn’t happen if you were hoping to have influence,” he said.

Stewart hosted “The Daily Show” from 1999 to 2015.
