Ever wondered what the + in Apple TV+ stands for? According to Jon Stewart, it means you can go into an Apple Store and find him and other Apple TV+ stars working at the Genius Bar.

Watch this clip to see the former host of The Daily Show utterly failing to provide tech support.

Jon Stewart may be a genius but he’s no Apple Genius

Of course, Stewart isn’t really moonlighting at an Apple retail store. He’s in a skit for Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Stewart is there to plug the second season of The Problem With Jon Stewart, which premieres October 7 on Apple TV+. The biweekly, one-hour, single-issue series explores topics that are currently part of the national conversation.

“Stewart still does a lot of what he did on The Daily Show,” wrote Cult of Mac‘s Scout Tafoya when reviewing the show’s first season. “He tees up clips to point out the hypocrisy of most people in charge of either a particular branch of government or the members of the press who spin the politicians’ work for them week after week. But he also goes deeper in the new Apple TV+ show.”

Season one covered the economy, climate change, the stock market and more. A list of topics for season two has yet to be announced.
