— Jon Stewart on the JSEB




Stewart Stalker Central


A confirmed event is one that was either covered by the media, verified by another reliable source (such as TV Guide or a well-run fan page), or witnessed by a reliable (i.e., no signs of looniness) JSIA member or visitor. Some dates may be one day off depending on what time zone you are in. For instance, a show like Nightline that airs at 11:35 pm in the Central time zone would technically air at 12:35 am the next day in the Eastern time zone. See the old TVography (not updated yet) for a general list of older Jon appearances.
