The problem often with “The Daily Show” is that they’re usually a day behind the news cycle, so sometimes their segments are old news by the time they air. It almost never matters, however. That’s certainly the case here where “The Daily Show” replaced John Oliver with a replacement correspondent in order to spoof the NFL Referees replacements, even though by the time “The Daily Show” aired last night, the dispute had been all but settled.
No matter. There’s nothing lost on a remote segment with the replacement correspondent is Patrick Stewart.
