It's been ten damn years since The Daily Show With Jon Stewart went on the air and it finally has its own web site. The site went live about three hours ago and has almost every video they have done since the show's inception.
The site contains more than 16,000 video clips spanning headlines, correspondent pieces and such regular segments as Lewis Black's "Back in Black" or Stephen Colbert's "This Week in God." For now, the archives start in early 1999, covering the Jon Stewart-era. The earlier version of the program, which started in 1996 with host Craig Kilborn, could be available by early 2008.
You can't actually watch the entire show at once. If you look around though you can piece together a show through the clips, but it is kind of a pain in the ass.
The site's home page will focus on the previous night's episode, from which clips will be posted by 8 a.m. EST the next morning, eventually being pushed up to 5 a.m.
