Jon Stewart’s Apple show ending due to ‘creative differences’ after execs resisted topics on China, AI: report

Jon Stewart’s Apple program is abruptly ending after executives at the tech giant reportedly objected to potential topics like China and AI. 

The New York Times reported Thursday that Apple is pulling the plug on “The Problem with Jon Stewart” ahead of a third season due to “creative differences.”

“Mr. Stewart and Apple executives had disagreements over some of the topics and guests on ‘The Problem,’ two of the people said,” the Times reported. “Mr. Stewart told members of his staff on Thursday that potential show topics related to China and artificial intelligence were causing concern among Apple executives, a person with knowledge of the meeting said. As the 2024 presidential campaign begins to heat up, there was potential for further creative disagreements, one of the people said.”

According to the Times, “The Problem” was set to begin taping episodes of its third season within a couple of weeks.

Neither Apple nor representatives for Stewart responded to FOX News’ requests for comment.
