Starting with the inception of the show and Craig Kilburn’s turn as host, this history will cover the groundbreaking election coverage, Jon’s famous monologue in the wake of 9/11, conflicts between correspondents,The O’Reilly Factor, the war with CNN and every satirical moment inbetween, including all the legendary cast members Samantha Bee, Stephen Colbert, Lewis Black, Jon Hodgeman, Steve Carrell, John Oliver and a foreword from Jon Stewart.
