Could Trevor Noah Replace Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show'? (Maybe…)

9 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Could "The Daily Show’s" most recent addition, Trevor Noah, be tapped to replace Jon Stewart when he leaves the show as host, at the end the year? It’s very possible, at least says Variety (Here); According to insiders, Noah is on “the shortlist” to replace Stewart. The South African comedian and satirist has many things going for him, including the fact that he has experience doing late night TV, having hosted a late night TV show in South Africa for two seasons, and that "The Daily Show" would most likely want to promote an existing member of the show to the new host position, for continuity. Also in his favor is that, 2 other likely candidates - "Daily Show" regulars, Samantha bee, and her husband, Jason Jones - are leaving the program to create their own comedy show for TBS. In addition, correspondent Jessica Williams, who was rumored as a possible replacement, »

Trevor Noah Emerges as Candidate to Take Over The Daily Show

28 March 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I don’t want to think about The Daily Show without Jon Stewart, but as with all good things (in this case a great thing), it had to come to an end sometime. When Stewart announced that he’d be stepping down from the late night Comedy Central series sometime this year, he left the window of his departure fairly open—he said he could leave in July, he could leave in October, or he could leave sometime in between. Likely he wants to ensure that a solid replacement has been found before he departs, and it looks as though Comedy Central has begun to narrow its search as the first genuine candidate has surfaced. Variety reports that South African comedian Trevor Noah is “gaining consideration” as a potential successor to Stewart as host of The Daily Show. Noah only became a correspondent for the show in December 2014, but the »

‘Daily Show': Trevor Noah Emerges on Short List to Replace Jon Stewart (Exclusive)

27 March 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Trevor Noah only joined “The Daily Show” as a contributor at the end of last year, but he could soon find himself serving as an integral part of the program.

Noah is gaining consideration as a potential successor to Jon Stewart, the Comedy Central mainstay’s longtime host, according to a person familiar with the matter, and if successful, could get a crack at becoming one of the more influential voices in latenight.

There is no guarantee that Noah will inherit Stewart’s seat, and no final decision has been reached, this person cautioned.  Comedy Central ‘s selection process has accelerated in recent days, this person said. And Noah, a South African comedian, has moved to a short list being put together by executives at the Viacom-owned cable outlet.

Watch George Lucas Mock Fox News on 'The Daily Show'

27 March 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On Thursday's episode of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart recruited filmmaker George Lucas to sarcastically honor Fox News for their cautioned coverage of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. The Star Wars mastermind, representing "liberal Hollywood," promised to "only make movies from now on that are blindly uncritical of America," citing surefire blockbuster examples American Exceptionalism Graffiti, Star Wars: The Reagan Missile Defense Version, The Empire Strikes Back, Justifiably and Star Wars: The Clinton Menace.

George Lucas Mocks Fox News, Promises to Make Movies "That Are Blindly Uncritical of America"—Watch Now!

27 March 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's not often that The Daily Show's Jon Stewart praises Fox News, but last night was different...kinda. The political funnyman mock-congratulated the cable news channel on "that time" they were right in not "rushing to judgment" in their Ferguson, Mo., coverage. So "in honor of this singular achievement of you [Fox News] being right," Stewart enlisted the help of a quintessential "Hollywood liberal," George Lucas. "I'm here to assure you that I'm only going to make movies from now on that are blindly uncritical of America," deadpanned the Star Wars creator. "Like...The Empire Strikes Back Justifiably, American Exceptionalism Graffiti, Star Wars: The Reagan »

Jon Stewart last night celebrated Jason JonesThe Daily Show career on the longtime correspondent’s final night with the Comedy Central late-night show. “The one thing that was always — nothing makes my job easier than knowing there is someone there who I can always go to, and always count on, and who’s going to deliver the funny, the smart, the everything,” Stewart said. “You were always that dude.

George Lucas "Honors" Fox News on 'Daily Show', Promises to Make Films "Blindly Uncritical of America"

27 March 2015 2:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Daily Show host Jon Stewart enlisted some heavyweight Hollywood help in ripping his 'favorite' news channel for congratulating itself for its own coverage of Ferguson.  On Thursday night's show, Stewart took exception to Fox's Megyn Kelly calling on other media outlets to acknowledge and credit her station's decision not to rush to judgment over the incidents in Ferguson. Stewart wasted no time in pointing out that Fox had built its reputation on rushing to judgment, citing Benghazi in particular. He did, however, concede that Fox getting things right was "newsworthy" in and of itself and cause for celebration. Read more George Lucas,

Outrage Watch Winter Roundup: From Beyonce to 'Frozen,' the 13 most overblown controversies

26 March 2015 6:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Since I started compiling Outrage Watch -- HitFix's "(almost) daily rundown of all the thing folks are peeved about in entertainment" -- I've never been faced with a shortage of things to write about. There's a lot of anger out there! At times so much that it can feel overwhelming. Other times, I just have to laugh at the sheer inanity of the things people manage to work themselves up over. Of the stories I highlight, I would say a good 75 percent represent examples of righteous outrage -- i.e. scorn directed at legitimate targets. And the other 25? The phrase "pick your battles" comes to mind here, and indeed, sometimes it seems the level of anger is blown out of all proportion to the target in question. As we look back on the winter of 2015, below you can find my roundup of 13 of the wackiest, most overblown controversies of the year so far. »

Watch Tom Hanks Reenact His Filmography in 8 Minutes on The Late Late Show

24 March 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In case you’ve been sleeping under a rock, the entire late night TV landscape is currently undergoing a massive changeover. After David Letterman departs The Late Show this spring, and after Jon Stewart leaves The Daily Show later this year, we’ll have an almost entirely new late night TV lineup. One of the first big shifts took place last night with the debut of The Late Late Show with James Corden, as the Brit took over for Craig Ferguson, who departed the Letterman follow-up last fall. I haven’t had a chance to watch Corden’s debut just yet, but he made a few significant changes to how late night TV is done here in the States—namely bringing out all of his guests at once (a la The Graham Norton Show), dispensing with the fake microphone atop his desk, and also leaving the desk altogether to take part in the interviews. »

7 Ways the 'Late, Late Show with James Corden' Is Actually Going to Feel New

That was the term used during an interview at CBS Studios three weeks ago, as the show was literally still coming together from the ground up, construction noises echoing from the stage. While Corden and executive producers Rob Crabbe and Ben Winston weren't able to reveal much about their plans for the launch of CBS' new late night entry, they were able to reveal what will hopefully help them stand out in the current crowded landscape and what America can expect from this unknown new presence.

The 20 Best Late-Night Talk Show Hosts Ever

23 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who'd want to be James Corden? The new host of CBS' "The Late Late Show," who takes over the slot vacated by Craig Ferguson, has an unenviable task. Not only does the British comic have to introduce himself to American audiences, he also has to succeed where nearly everyone else who's tried has failed, in the hyper-competitive arena of late-night talk.

For all the late-night talk shows launched over the past 60 years, only a tiny handful of hosts have found any success. Many shows vanished without a trace, despite having talented and funny hosts who had succeeded elsewhere.. Does anyone remember that Craig Kilborn hosted "The Daily Show" before Jon Stewart and "The Late Late Show" before Craig Ferguson? Does anyone remember Whoopi Goldberg's show, or Roseanne's, or Joy Behar's, or Zach Galifianakis's? Others do have an impact, but it's the disastrous impact of an asteroid hurtling into the earth. »

Jon Stewart Slams “Shockingly Terrible” Fox News Over Ferguson, Benghazi Coverage

20 March 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Jon Stewart let it rip last night in a tirade against Fox News Channel on The Daily Show, blasting the cable news org for continuing to ask the media for an “apology” for promoting a false narrative of the Ferguson protests. Stewart turned the tables, demanding an apology from them. "The lesson Fox News is getting at is very clear," Stewart said. "Wouldn't it be nice if people who jumped to conclusions and peddled a false, divisive, anger-stoking narrative had to… »

Jon Stewart Destroys ‘Shockingly Terrible’ Fox News for Hypocritical Ferguson Outrage (Video)

Jon Stewart often attacks his nemeses on the Fox News Channel — but he Really went after them on Thursday night. The “Daily Show” host tore into what he called the “shockingly terrible” cable news channel for demanding an apology from members of the media and politicians who oversold the now infamous Ferguson “Hands up, Don’t shoot” protest flashpoint which, according to the Department of Justice, didn’t go down the way many outlets reported it. “The lesson Fox News is getting at is very clear,” Stewart started, leaning in to full-fledged irony: “Wouldn’t it be nice if people »

Jon Stewart literally drops the mic on Fox News and Benghazi

20 March 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jon Stewart may be counting down to his final episode of "The Daily Show," but if last night's episode was any indication, he is not going to take it easy on his way out the door. "Mighty Morphin Position Changers" is one of the most ferocious pieces Stewart's put together in regards to Fox News, and inarguable in the way it exposes the network's machinery. The reason Fox News makes such a perfect target for Stewart's anger isn't because of which side of the political argument they're on; it's because they are hypocritical and because of the way they handle their own mistakes. It's a devastating piece, and Stewart's big finish seems earned after the way the piece brings everything together.
