The Promo For The Problem With Jon Stewart And Billionaires In Space

Look, we all want to be excited about Jon Stewart’s return to TV. Just like we want to be excited about the idea that anyone can blast off into space. It’s just…not everyone can get on that rocket ship. And Stewart’s promo sketch for The Problem with Jon Stewart, coming to Apple TV+ in September, feels like something leftover from John Oliver’s show.

Even if he got Jason Alexander as Jeff Bezos, Adam Pally as Elon Musk, and Tracy Morgan as, whatever he’s supposed to be doing here.

Besides, Wyatt Cenac already covered this ground earlier and better. Not the first time we’re gonna see this. Sigh.
