The Best Satrirical News Programs

List Rules
Vote up the shows that deliver satire with a side of news.

It's important to stay current on all the latest news developments. There is a lot of significant stuff going on right now in American politics, and every citizen would do well to stay in the loop. However, that doesn't mean people shouldn't have a little fun with their news. It does not have to be all doom and gloom all the time. Sometimes, the perfect way to talk about serious issues is to deliver them to the audience in a funny way. Plenty of shows over the years have discovered this secret formula, and it has resulted in some of the best comedy news shows of all time. 

The Daily Show is truly responsible for the rise of satirical news series. Craig Kilborn hosted the show for the first couple of years it was on the air, but Jon Stewart truly made it his own. Four nights a week, he went on to deliver hilarious jokes and intriguing insight into the nuances of American politics. If it wasn't for The Daily Show, then Americans never would have gotten The Colbert Report, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, and The Opposition with Jordan Klepper

The best satirical news TV shows of all time are on this list. Partake in democracy and vote for your favorites.
