At the end of each show, a short clip from the broadcast, usually offbeat and slightly bizarre out of context, is replayed as a "Moment of Zen". The first "Moment of Zen" was file footage of a yak giving birth. In the past few years, "Moment of Zen" clips have been more focused on soundbites from politicians and media figures.

In an interview hosted by Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart stated that he almost quit the show shortly after he began hosting it. Stewart wanted to change the direction of the show and was met with strong resistance from the writers and producers. According to Stewart, it took 2-1/2 years for those staff members to gradually leave the show so that Stewart could have his own fully supportive staff.

Jon Stewart: If Monday night was fillet mignon, Tuesday night was "What else is in the fridge?"

Jon Stewart: Even if the flag burning amendment does become law, the larger problem will remain of how to respectfully dispose of older, tattered flags. Well, fortunately the U.S. official Flag Code has a suggestion about this. "The flag, when it is in such a condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning." Owwwwcchh. In response, the House Republicans are calling for tattered flags to be kept alive via a feeding tube.
