I've heard of less than half of these, I only got Project Runway, America's Next Top Model and Punk'd. I knew Joy of Painting was Bob someone, just couldn't think of his last name. I loved that show!

I agree. Even though I missed it too. I could picture him putting his "happy little tree" in the painting. I just couldn't think of his name. :(

Stewart elevated the Daily Show to much much greater heights than Kilborn ever even dreamed... but I also loved the Kilborn version, for what it was. However, Trevor Noah is a poor replacement. The show is long passed its hey day.

Jon Stewart is no longer the host of The Daily Show. Should be updated for Trevor Noah as of 2015.

Jon Stewart was also not the first host. Craig Kilborn was the host before Stewart. He and Noah should both be added. Also ANTM has a new host I believe.

Indeed. If you're not going to add Trevor Noah, at least change Stewart to "1999-2015".
