The Daily Show Sweeps the Emmys Nine Years in a Row

September 20 2011 by Rachel Abbott

At the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart added two more Emmy® statuettes to its category-sweeping collection. The Daily Show has an incredible winning streak to celebrate, going nine years strong for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series and earning its seventh all-time award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Series. Kudos!

To date they've racked up 16 Emmys, and we can't help but feel warm fuzzies all over— knowing that the show's comedy writers use our TV search technology to make some of the funniest television around. They've produced a recipe for lasting success: artfully pruning TV clips, seasoning them with sharp wit and serving them straight up ridiculous, Stewart-style. And we just can't get enough.

No joke, we hoard episodes of The Daily Show around here, as much for lunch-break entertainment as for pure inspiration. Every time we watch, we're in awe of what they do, using our product in such a creative way. While SnapStream is incredibly easy-to-use for any average Joe, the writing process that takes place around the technical workflow cannot be taught in any of our user training sessions. These talented content creators bring TV search to life, mixing montages and clever jokes in ways you couldn't imagine.

Before going up on stage to accept each Emmy award on Sunday night, Jon Stewart notably bear-hugged Stephen Colbert both times. I couldn't help but smile. Little do most viewers know, The Colbert Report and The Daily Show not only share the same production company, but they also have a joint SnapStream Cluster. Stewart said, "We're acutely aware of how fortunate we are to win it once let alone many times."
