Back from Thanksgiving break, Jon Stewart picked up "The Daily Show" right where it left off -- mocking the glitch-ridden Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov. It "was supposed to provide an online marketplace for health insurance, but instead, the website records you having sex and emails it to your parents," joked Stewart.

With the passing of Nov. 30, the date of the site's relaunch, Stewart offered up his congratulations to the Obama administration for "doing the thing you should've done two months ago, before everyone's faith in the ability of government was to function properly was irreparably damaged."
