TUESDAY, AUGUST 28-FRIDAY, AUGUST 31

Free Tickets to "The Daily Show" Tapings in Tampa May Be Requested at www.thedailyshow.com

NEW YORK, May 8, 2012 -- "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" continues its legacy of on the road convention coverage by broadcasting a week of shows during the Republican National Convention in Tampa. "The Daily Show's" coverage of the 2012 RNC will be taped at the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts in Ferguson Hall and air nightly at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT from Tuesday, August 28 through Friday, August 31. The show previously announced its coverage of the 2012 DNC which will be taped at ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center(TM) in Charlotte 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 Tampa," said Rory Albanese, Executive Producer, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.' "We look forward to enjoying the beaches and the exciting nightlife, plus we assume this counts as a visit to our grandparents."

The Straz Center is located at 1010 North W.C. MacInnes Place in Tampa. Tickets for the tapings are free and 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 RNC will feature news, analysis, and guest interviews from host Jon Stewart as well as reports from the convention floor at the Tampa Bay Times Forum 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.
