Jon Stewart’s Worst-Ever Guest on The Daily Show

In his nearly 14 years as host of The Daily Show, surely Jon Stewart has a least-favorite guest?

Boy, does he. Interviewed by Daily Show alum and Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert during the Montclair Film Festival, Stewart wasted no time in answering the question: Hugh Grant. And, as Stewart noted, "We've had dictators on the show."


Why no love for Grant? "He's giving everyone shit the whole time, and he's a big pain in the ass," Stewart said. Grant appeared in 2009 to promote his little-seen movie Did You Hear About the Morgans?

The experience was so bad, Stewart said he'd never have Grant back on the program.
