Trevor Noah Promises 'Nothing's Going to Change' in 'Daily Show' Promo

9 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Put your vuvuzela back in the closet – Trevor Noah is taking over as the new Daily Show host later this month, but the South African comedian isn't planning any dramatic cultural shifts. "It's still The Daily Show – nothing's going to change," he says in a goofy promo clip, after correspondents Jessica Williams, Hasan Minhaj and Jordan Klepper welcome their boss with offers to play cricket and rugby.

"Maybe he's right, ya know? A zebra shouldn't change its stripes," Williams says. Turns out Noah does have one change planned: the pronunciation of "zebra. »

Bray Wyatt Working WWE Events With Injured Shoulder

9 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Ric Flair took to his Wooooo! Nation podcast to announce that Bray Wyatt has been dealing with a shoulder injury for some time.

Wyatt did not wrestle on Monday’s Raw and has been restricted to multiple person matches since August 3. He did face-off against Roman Reigns in a street fight during this week’s SmackDown tapings, although those matches allow those involved to do more brawling at ringside and minimise their bumps.

The injury goes some way to explaining the timing of Braun Strowman’s introduction. The newest Wyatt Family member debuted with great aplomb during last week’s Raw, dismantling both Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose before facing off against the Lunatic Fringe on this week’s episode.

The former strongman will be doing the majority of Wyatt’s legwork in the coming weeks it seems.

Jon Stewart Only Has Great Things to Say About Stephen Colbert and His Late Show Gig

11 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart left their Comedy Central posts in rapid succession, with Colbert, of course, moving to a roomier desk at CBS as the host of The Late Show. In a lead-up to Colbert's debut on September 8, the New York Times reports that Stewart, as always, has nothing but praise for his former correspondent. Stewart was scouted as a potential successor for Letterman back in 2002, but said, “I’m not suited, and he is." They talked about their departures with one another beforehand, and Stewart encouraged Colbert to explore the possibility of stepping into Letterman's role. “I think it took him a while to figure out: Can I get excited about this? Can I bring the kind of energy and enthusiasm I’m going to need every day?" said Stewart. "Because these types of shows use every part of the host, as the ancient Americans would say.”As »

Samantha Bee Will Join Late-Night Fray in January

12 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The spotlight in late night is on Stephen Colbert as he prepares to launch his CBS program next week, but Samantha Bee wants to grab some of the illumination, too.

The former “Daily Show” correspondent formally announced Wednesday that her new TBS program will be called “Full Frontal” and will debut in January. In a raunchy promo placed on YouTube, Bee placed heavy emphasis on the fact that her program will be the only one in the time slot hosted by a woman.

Bee did not reveal what time her new program will run.

Bee is likely to be the last major entrant into a time period in the midst of tremendous change. Over the last two years, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Chelsea Handler, Jon Stewart and Craig Ferguson have stepped down. There are relatively new faces behind the desk at nearly every major program that airs around the end of the day. »

Watch: ‘The Daily Show’ Changes for Trevor Noah in New Promo

1 September 2015 3:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Out with the old and in with the new. At least that’s what staffers are saying at “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah.”

Correspondents are kissing up to their new host in the latest promo for the show’s upcoming season. Jessica Williams, Hasan Minhaj and Jordan Klepper decide to remodel the news program to “better” reflect Jon Stewart’s heir and his South African roots.

Quick to put a stop to their wild assumptions, Noah assures the news team that everything will remain as is.

“It’s still ‘The Daily Show,'” he promised. “Nothing’s going to change.” Unless you count the man behind the desk, who pronounces “zebra” a little differently than everyone else.

The Daily Show With Trevor Noah” bows Sept. 28 on Comedy Central.

Watch: New 'Daily Show' Host Trevor Noah Says 'Nothing is Going to Change'

Read More: Review: 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' Made Jon Stewart Acknowledge Our Thanks In a lighthearted promo for the new series, remaining "Daily Show" correspondents Jessica Williams, Jordan Klepper and Hasan Minhaj joke around with their new host Trevor Noah about what possible differences there could be on the new version of the show.  While there will definitely be fewer New Jersey jokes, and possibly more South Africa jokes (ex: Zebra vs. Zebra), Trevor Noah adamantly states that "nothing is going to change."   That might not necessarily be true -- one of Jon Stewart's favorite targets, Fox News, will no longer be the butt of many jokes, according to comments Trevor Noah made at the TCA press tour. Audiences can trust, however, that no matter what the show chooses to satirize, they will still be greeted with smart, original comedy.  Read More: Watch: Jon Stewart »

Check Out the New Daily Show Promo with Trevor Noah and Correspondents

1 September 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Now that Jon Stewart has relinquished his driver’s seat on The Daily Show, everyone is wondering how Trevor Noah is going to fill his shoes.   Judging by this promo, I’m a little worried.  Doing a bit about the pronunciation of Zebra?  Whether it’s Zeh-bra or Zee-bra?  Ehh.  Well it’s not like The Daily Show was ever huge on commercials but there’s no reason they shouldn’t be. Personally I think they should use an Espn approach and have guest stars floating around the office doing funny stuff.  Seriously.  How funny would it be to see politicians in Espn type commercials?  I for one would love to see a Chris Christie answering phones and getting heated. Or how about Donald Trump wearing a mascot uniform?  Noah assures his troops that the Daily Show will be the same but judging by this 30 second spot, it’s going »

Telluride Film Festival 2015: Most Anticipated

30 August 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 42nd Telluride Film Festival is about to get underway in southwest Colorado. A box canyon provides a jaw-dropping setting for a fest jammed packed with premieres, retrospectives and classics over Labor Day weekend. This is my 10th year attending and my 9th year working for the festival. The production team works meticulously in the month before the showings to spring theaters out of the local schools, hockey rink, park, Masonic Temple and library. The intricate decoration and state of the art tech involved in the preparation lead the festival to be lovingly referred to as “Show.”

Telluride is a small and friendly town that provides an intimate arena for intense discussion about film. In recent years, higher profile selections in the program have gone on to Academy award winning renown. These movies have garnered Telluride attention on the film festival circuit but not changed the close-knit community who work »

By Hiring Baratunde Thurston, Trevor Noah’s ‘Daily Show’ Hones In On Digital Content

28 August 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

On September 28th, South African comedian Trevor Noah will officially begin the difficult task of replacing Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show. Noah will have to deliver his own unique spin on fake news in order to distinguish himself from his predecessor, and this week, his Daily Show regime announced a hire that gives us a glimpse at how he will accomplish that goal. Baratunde Thurston, political humorist and former director of digital at The Onion, will be The Daily Show’s head of digital content.

In his new role, Thurston will be tasked with the creation of Daily Show-related content on platforms like Snapchat and Instagram. This strategy will be a marked departure from The Daily Show’s approach to digital platforms under Stewart; while episodes were made available on the Comedy Central website, The Daily Show did not have much digital presence beyond that.

He’ll work with Noah and the show’s executive producers to execute the multiplatform strategy, the cabler said.

With just under three months left until The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 hits theaters this November, star Jennifer Lawrence has already started doing press for the franchise finale. After her other big franchise wraps up with X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016, many are wondering what will be next for the Oscar-winning star. As it turns out, the actress revealed in an interview with The New York Times that she is teaming up with Trainwreck star/writer Amy Schumer in a comedy movie they are both writing and planning to star in. Here's what she had to say about working with Amy Schumer.

"We play sisters. We're almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We've got about 100 pages right now. Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavors. It's been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, »

Seriously, How Often Do You Get to See Jon Stewart Body Slammed on WWE?

25 August 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After spending 16 years sitting behind a desk grilling politicians and changing politics, was Jon Stewart pining for another job?  Could it be that Stewart’s life long dream was to be a pro wrestler? The former host of “The Daily Show” appeared on “Monday Night Raw,” a day after hosting WWE’s SummerSlam.   Oddly enough at SummerSlam he smashed 15-time WWE Champion John Cena with a metal chair to the stomach.   But Daly, the gentleman, returns to speak with Cena. Actually, he decided to immerse himself fully into a story line that involved not only Cena, but wrestling legend Rick Flair as well.  Oh and by the way, he got body slammed too.  Stewart addressed a rowdy crowd in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and their “children who wanted to know who the little old mean man was” that was sharply divided over his part in the outcome of the previous night’s winner-takes-all… »

How Jon Stewart and Stephen Amell Might Teach You To Love Professional Wrestling

Instead, he was on "Monday Night Raw," being confronted by professional wrestler/"Trainwreck" scene-stealer John Cena about the fact that the day before, during the WWE PPV event "SummerSlam," Stewart had run out in the middle of Cena's wrestling match and hit John Cena with a chair, thus sabotaging Cena's match and allowing the other guy to win.  Read More: Review: 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' Made Jon Stewart Acknowledge Our Thanks Cena felt Stewart (who was officially at SummerSlam to serve as host) had transgressed, and so Cena sought justice in the form of what Cena refers to as an "attitude adjustment" — known to the »

Jimmy Fallon’s Mishaps Magnified in Late-Night TV Fishbowl

25 August 2015 6:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A chipped tooth won’t derail NBC’s vaunted “Tonight Show,” but it has created plenty of chatter among people obsessed with the inner workings of late-night TV.

Since taking over “Tonight” in February 2014, Jimmy Fallon has proven himself to be dynamic, creative, hard-charging and largely impossible to defeat in the ratings. He has brought new energy to one of TV’s most durable formats by getting guests to play games, take part in skits and show off hidden talents. But he has also demonstrated a different quality: He’s prone to accidents.

Fallon late last week disclosed via Twitter and Instagram that he had inadvertently chipped a tooth trying to open a tube of medication for his finger. That finger was nearly lost in June when Fallon took a tumble at home and snagged the digit thanks to a ring getting caught on a piece of furniture, requiring emergency surgery. »
