‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ Books President Obama Days Before ‘Sanity’ Rally

“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” will be taping a week of shows from Washington DC next week, days before Stewart and his Comedy Central colleague Stephen Colbert host their “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” Oct. 30.

This morning, the White House says that President Obama will be a guest on the show next week, the first sitting president to appear. Obama will tape his appearance Wednesday, October 27. He last appeared on the show a few weeks before the 2008 Presidential election (pictured).

While the other guests have not been announced, people close to the show tell TVNewser that “Daily Show” bookers have been aggressively reaching out to politicos in DC, and are trying to book at least one, and possibly two, prominent Republican guests.

Comedy Central is owned by MTV Networks, which hosted Obama just last week as part of a town hall discussion on its signature channel.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg TV’s next installment of “Game Changers” focuses on Stewart. More information on that, including a video preview, after the jump.

Bill O’Reilly ‘The Fairest Guy in the Temple of Doom’ on ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’

Last week Jon Stewart made an appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor,” last night, Bill O’Reilly returned the favor.

Fox News Channel’s 8 PM host was a guest on last night’s “The Daily Show,” where the discussion was more meta than political. The hospitality of talk show hosts, Glenn Beck and Stewart’s planned rally in Washington October 30 all came up. O’Reilly’s book Pinheads and Patriots came up too.
