Unsure of its place in a vast news world and reluctant to lean into its host’s established strengths, the early problem with The Problem is that it doesn’t know what it is yet...

Dull, derivative, and far from funny...

Surprisingly, the comedy is the shakiest part early on...

(It) feels like Stewart's attempt to evolve what he used to do for a new era. He just hasn't figured out how to do it yet...

Whereas The Daily Show used Stewart’s prickly dissatisfaction as a comedic engine, his new show spotlights it with a more focused determination.

Decider

With the steady hand of Stewart at the helm, even the bumpier, less funny episodes will be informative about issues that are pretty damned serious.

It'll take time for the show to resolve into what it can do best, but in the meantime, it is nice to have (Stewart) back around.

The show's success will ultimately depend on its specificity and timeliness.
