LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to HBO, Stewart will record comedy bits drawn from the daily headlines to be interspersed between regular programming.

The arrangement is ideal for Stewart, who said he was ground down by the demands of "The Daily Show."

Network officials say that content will be refreshed multiple times throughout the day, which will "view current events through his unique prism."

Those in need for their daily fix of Stewart should know his bits will be available on HBO GO, the network's streaming portal, and other platforms. The new agreement also includes a first-look option for television series and other potential projects.

"Jon Stewart led a revolution that changed the face of TV comedy on the 'Daily Show,'" HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo said in a news release. "He graced our network nearly 20 years ago, so we're thrilled to welcome back his immense talents in this next chapter of his career."

Stewart's "Daily Show" on Comedy Central series recently won three Emmys, including variety series talk. The show received 23 Emmys and two Peabody Awards during its initial run.

Stewart is a two-time Oscar host. He is the author of the best-selling book "Naked Pictures of Famous People" and co-authored the best-selling books "America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction" and "Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race." He also wrote and directed the 2014 feature film "Rosewater."

Stewart claims that "Appearing on television 22 minutes a night clearly broke me," he said. "I'm pretty sure I can produce a few minutes of content every now and again," Stewart joked.

Stewart follows the footsteps of former "Daily Show" correspondent John Oliver, who scored his own show, "Last Week Tonight."

The Stewart collaboration is the latest in a string of programming coups for the premium-cable giant, including partnerships with the producers of "Sesame Street" and former ESPN commentator Bill Simmons.
