The Daily Show’s Desi Lydic hosting half-hour special about Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Daily Show correspondent Desi Lydic hosts a half-hour special in tribute to the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Presents: Remembering RBG – A Nation Ugly Cries with Desi Lydic, premiering Friday, Oct. 30 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.

The special finds Lydic on a journey through the five stages of grief—denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and… what’s the opposite of the acceptance?—as she comes to terms with the Justice’s death and where to go from here. The special will feature interviews with female thought-leaders as well as stories from people whose lives she touched.

This is Desi Lydic’s second “Daily Show” special after an international exploration of countries besting America on gender equality in The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Presents Desi Lydic: Abroad, which aired in March 2019. Lydic joined The Daily Show as a Correspondent in September 2015.
