The live shows, just like all other shows, are startlingly different then what is shown on air later on. The show that goes on air, if and when the transmission is not live, is heavily edited and censored. The commercial breaks themselves are studded with quips and lots of funny moments which never make it on air but can be enjoyed by the audiences.
The show, in context with his new star of a host is now known as the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It first aired in the mid 1990s and was initially hosted by Craig Kilborn.

He hosted the show for two straight years before finally being replaced by Jon Stewart and his straight man persona! Stewart brought some radical changes in the entire setup of the show.
