Tuesday TV: Jon Stewart’s Twain Moment

A raft of stars pay homage to the man who elevated late night topical humor on “Jon Stewart: The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize” (PBS, 9 p.m.). Bruce Springsteen performs alongside the night’s band leader Gary Clark Jr. and a number of past stars from “The Daily Show” show up, including Steve Carell, Samantha Bee, Ed Helms and (who remembers her briefest of stints?) Olivia Munn. Two “Daily Show” alums, Stephen Colbert and John Oliver, appear via video. Others adding to the accolades include the last Twain winner, Dave Chappelle, historian Jon Meacham, Jimmy Kimmel and Pete Davidson (whose date is Kim Kardashian).
