"The Daily Show" is a bellwether for the evolution of Internet video. It is also one of those programs that signify for people why they pay so much money for cable.
Until recently, few of the main made-for-cable programs have been available to watch in full over the Internet, even as broadcast networks have started streaming full episodes of most of their shows.
