Jon Stewart is as funny in person as he is on TV - maybe even more! The ticketing process goes like this after you have a confirmed reservation in hand -
1. Wait at the studio around ~1:50 pm (even though it says 2:30 pm on there). We got there at about 1:45 pm and was already number 106 and 107. I think the guaranteed seating are numbers 1 - 120; rest are sort-of wait-listed numbers with no guarantee. They start handing out numbers at 2:30, this process goes pretty fast until they run out of those yellow slips/blue slips of paper. They also tell you to come back at 4:30 pm.
2. There is really little need to come before 4:30 pm, since the door opens at 5:00 pm and by this time you go in by self-sorted line of numbers. You have to go through brief security once you are through the door.
3. There is no wait beyond this point, you are ushered into the actual studio. Stand for a second, breathe in the studio air and take in the surreal-ness of being in Dailyshow's studio, then proceed to your seats.
4. YAY! We are in. There is a pre-show stand up comedian who cracks a bunch of really great jokes and introduces Jon Stewart. Now it's the time to show some enthusiasm and love for Jon.
5. There is a fairly lengthy FAQ session with Jon, borderline weird questions are allowed. (e.g. If you are the king of onion kingdom, which onion would be your subordinates?) Jon answers each of them with his lightening fast humor reflex and fill you with a belly full of good laughs.
6. The actual show begins. You practice more enthusiasm clapping and declare love for the show (and Jon). Then sit back and enjoy the show before everyone else sees it on TV. The filming of the show goes smoothly without retakes. I'm always in awe of the professionalism with the perfection of one-time execution.
7. Jon waves to say bye and you are ushered out of the studio, cast a final glance, take comfort in the fact that you have the tiny piece of paper which shows you have been to one of the most entertaining place in NYC! Free of charge!

This man is king and I love him. With free show tickets, you'd be a fool not to put in a request to view some incredibly entertaining, smart, and awesome TV in the making. Be aware - there's a crazy long wait list and when they do finally get back to you, it's more of a "here's your date" sort of thing, not so much a "here are your options" thing. I believe they will ask you for dates that work for you, so plan in advance.

Some people can wait in lines--it’s in their blood. You’ll need to be one of these people if you want to get in and see a taping of the Daily Show. You need tickets FAR in advance, but even so, you end up waiting around for hours and hours. Worth it? Absolutely!

While you might not think of watching a TV show on vacation, going to see a taping of The Daily Show is so iconically New York. As the show's popularity rises, so does the difficulty level of getting tickets, but with some advance planning, tickets are relatively easy (compared to, say, Oprah).
