"THE DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART" ANNOUNCES WEEK-LONG COVERAGE FROM THE 2012 DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION TAPING AT IMAGINON: THE JOE & JOAN MARTIN CENTER(TM) IN CHARLOTTE, NC FROM TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4-FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7

Tickets To "The Daily Show" Tapings In Charlotte May Be Requested At www.thedailyshow.com

NEW YORK, April 2, 2012 - "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" is heading to Charlotte with 125+ stalwart staffers to cover its fourth Democratic National Convention and broadcast a week of shows. "The Daily Show's" coverage of the 2012 DNC will be taped at ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center(TM) and air nightly at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT from Tuesday, September 4 through Friday, September 7.

"We are incredibly excited to spend a week in the beautiful city of Charlotte," said Rory Albanese, Executive Producer, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.' "And to the good people of North Carolina, for their southern hospitality in hosting 125 smart-aleck New Yorkers, we offer in advance our thanks, but most of all, our apologies. Honestly, we didn't mean to break that, and we promise we'll pay for it."

ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center(TM), a partnership between the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and the Children's Theatre of Charlotte, is located at 300 East Seventh St. in Charlotte. Tickets for the tapings will be available only through the show's Web site, www.thedailyshow.com, not through the venue's box office.

The episodes airing during the 2012 DNC will feature news, analysis, and guest interviews from host Jon Stewart as well as reports from the convention floor at the Time Warner Cable Arena from "The Daily Show" News Team (Samantha Bee, Wyatt Cenac, Jason Jones, Al Madrigal, Aasif Mandvi, John Oliver and Jessica Williams).

This marks the ninth time the series has taken its critically-acclaimed and award-winning political coverage on the road, having previously travelled to Philadelphia (2000 RNC), Los Angeles (2000 DNC), Boston (2004 DNC), Denver (2008 DNC) and St. Paul (2008 RNC) to cover the national party conventions, and to Washington, D.C. (2002, 2010) and Columbus, OH (2006) for special, mid-term election coverage.

"The Daily Show" first earned its political stripes during the now-infamous 2000 election, receiving an Emmy(R) Award and a prestigious George Foster Peabody(R) Award for its year-long "Indecision 2000" coverage of the race for the White House, achievements repeated during the series' "Indecision 2004" election reporting.

"The Daily Show" airs Monday-Thursday at 11:00 p.m. and repeats at 1:00 a.m. the same night and at 9:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. the following day (all times ET/PT). Full episodes, as well as clips, are posted for viewing the following day at www.thedailyshow.com with URL and embed links.
