An estimated 100,000 people are expected to show up at his Rally to Restore Sanity in Washington D.C. on Oct. 30. He has the support of Oprah Winfrey, and even President Barack Obama says he's "amused" by him. It's no joke that Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show, has some serious clout these days!
So it's no surprise that the readers of online magazine AskMen.com voted Stewart, 47, as "The Most Influential Man" of 2010. As the site -- which asked fellas to vote for the most powerful men in movies, music, sports, and politics -- so succinctly put it, Stewart's "acerbic take on the madness around him continues to draw audiences who look to the funnyman as a voice of reason."
Whether he's taking on Fox News or the Tea Party, "no one is off-limits to Stewart," says AskMen.com. And though Stewart has said he won't run for politics, he's become the primary source for political news for many of the nation's youth.
But Stewart (who jumped up from the no. 13 spot, where he sat last year) wasn't the only one to make the list of the top 49 most influential men. The rest of the top five was rounded out by Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, and Kanye West.
Stewart's late night follow-up Stephen Colbert (who is holding an adjoining rally on the 30th to "restore fear") came in at no. 11, Conan O'Brien's whirlwind year placed him at no. 12, and President Obama landed at no. 21.
