Michael Kosta Back at Daily Show Anchor Desk This Week

It’s another Jon Stewart Monday over at The Daily Show today, but the rest of this week will see Michael Kosta take the reins for the fourth time.

Kosta’s first Tuesday-through-Thursday hosting stint came in late February. In mid-March, he spent another week at the helm alongside correspondent Desi Lydic. He returned for another solo run in April.

Kosta will host by himself again this week, making him tied with Lydic and contributor Jordan Klepper for most weeks hosted this season .

Kosta’s guest on Tuesday will be journalist and author Sebastian Junger, promoting his new book In My Time of Dying: How I Came Face to Face with the Idea of an Afterlife

In the book, the war reporter recounts how the closest he came to death was not somewhere on the front lines, but rather when he suffered an aneurysm at his own home.

On Wednesday, Kosta welcomes actor and comedian J.B. Smoove, best known as Leon in Curb Your Enthusiasm. He currently serves as a voice actor on the Netflix’s animated adaptation of Norman Lear’s Good Times.

Thursday’s guest will be EGOT-winning artist and activist John Legend, who will be promoting his new documentary podcast, Afghan Star, about the revolutionary Afghan version of American Idol that debuted in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban.

Kosta debuted on The Daily Show in July 2017 under host Trevor Noah. He’s currently a senior correspondent on the program.
