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

2 September 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | 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. »

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'

1 September 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

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 »

Everything in its place by Anne-Katrin Titze

People Places Things director James C. Strouse Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Jim Strouse's sleeper summer hit features an agile, very funny Jemaine Clement sparring with Stephanie Allynne, Jessica Williams, Michael Chernus (of Noah Baumbach's Mistress America), Regina Hall, Gia Gadsby and Aundrea Gadsby.

Virginia and Alessandro Nivola, The Elephant Man, playwrights Will Eno and Alan Ayckbourn with a touch of Alain Resnais and a John Singer Sargent portrait, form a frame to our conversation. I connect Jim's composer Mark Orton (out of Alexander Payne's Nebraska) to Walter Slezak in Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat, Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Silence De La Mer, Marlene Dietrich in Stanley Kramer's Judgement at Nuremberg and Madeline Kahn in Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles, and he connects Chernus and Clement to Men In Black 3.

Jemaine Clement as Will Henry: "He is very present and open…"

The final Daily Show with Jon Stewart - as it happened

6 August 2015 9:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The satirist and provider of ‘fake news’ stepped down after 16 yearsStewart hosted a 50-minute send off with guest appearances from Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Hillary ClintonHe signed off with Born to Run played by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

12.07am Et

As the audience descend on to the set there’s a hug between Stewart and the E Street Band. He’s on the mic again to just say: “Thank you and goodnight.” Simple but effective. That was pretty much the theme for tonight. A great rapid rundown of all the people who made the show possible with a bare minimal of sentimental moments directed at Stewart.

“Welcome to the Daily Show. I am Jon Stewart. Thank you very much for coming.” That understated opening gambit was how Stewart began his final appearance during his run as host of the show.

Jon Stewart’s Farewell: ‘Daily Show’ Host Spotlights Staff, Not Self

6 August 2015 9:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The host of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” used his last turn behind the desk to make the program a daily show about all the people who put the program together.

Jon Stewart didn’t use his final time on the landmark Comedy Central program to wallow in memories. There were no clips of past stunts, no skatey-eighth rerun of Stewart berating CNBC financial commentator James Cramer for the tone of that network’s coverage of finance. Instead, Stewart spent a good part of a 63-minute finale celebrating the comedians who contributed to the program over his 16 years at its helm and the writers and support staff behind the scenes.

In doing so, Stewart – who turned a light-hearted program ostensibly about delivering fake news into a very real, cultural touchstone for thousands of viewers four nights a week – flipped another format on its ear. TV’s biggest latenight finales »

Jon Stewart Bids Epic Farewell to ‘Daily Show': ‘The Best Defense Against Bullsh-t Is Vigilance’

6 August 2015 8:55 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jon Stewart’s final “Daily Show” opened with a nod to the past as a star-studded cast of current and former correspondents joined him to cover the first Republican debate. Jessica Williams, Hasan Minhaj and Jordan Klepper reported from the debate, covering Donald Trump, Jeb Bush and Scott Walker’s debate performance. They were soon joined by a returning Samantha Bee, Lewis Black, Steve Carell, Vance DeGeneres, Mo Rocca, Matt Walsh and an angry Larry Wilmore, whose “Nightly Show” got bumped for an extended finale for Stewart. “Black shows matter,” Wilmore said, a nod to the Black Lives Matter movement. »

6 August 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Before Jon Stewart signs off as host of The Daily Show for the last time Thursday night, his latest team of crack correspondents interrupted his impromptu game of five-finger fillet to present a poignant, moving tribute, "A Man Who Was on TV."

Jordan Klepper, Jessica Williams and Hasan Minhaj gamely ran down the straight facts about Stewart's remarkable tenure as host of The Daily Show: From 11 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, Stewart said words, played sound bites and then said more words, each moment captured »

‘Daily Show With Jon Stewart’: 17 Famous Moments

6 August 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After nearly two decades of punny headlines, media skewering and much, much Washington bashing, Jon Stewart is signing off as host of “The Daily Show.” While it is impossible for us to round up all of the show’s noteworthy moments under Stewart’s watch, Variety offers these 17 moments of, well, not always zen:

Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck’s brand of hyperbolic talk on Fox News presented an irresistible target to Stewart (and helped inspire his “Rally to Restore Sanity”), prompting an epic parody of Beck’s brand of performance art/apocalyptic warnings/old-school chalkboard antics.

Jon Stewart, the 21st Century’s Johnny Carson

6 August 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As a post-recession, Iraq-war-concluding, police-brutality-video-watching America braced itself for a Presidential campaign pitting a Clinton against a Bush, a beloved late-night host wrapped up his long-running show, leaving America’s entertainment press grappling for words as though they were eulogizing a President or a Pope. Ah, who could forget 1992?

If you’ve had it up to here with this week’s outpouring of turgidity and grandiloquence, if you’re saying to yourself, “My God, when has anyone cared this much about a guy leaving a show?“, think back to the 1992 retirement of Johnny Carson, after 30 years of hosting The Tonight Show. “Look on the bright side; you won’t have to read or see any more coverage about me leaving the show,” Johnny half-joked during his final episode. “My God, the Soviet Union’s end hasn’t received this kind of publicity.” Carson was responding to bombastic encomiums that, until this week, »

Read More: Sundance Review: Jemaine Clement, Jessica Williams and More Shine in 'People, Places and Things' After earning critical acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival in January, James C. Strouse's comedy-drama "People Places Things" is gearing up for its August theatrical release with two imaginative new posters that bring the world of the film to life in all its graphic novel glory.

Watch The Daily Show’s Jessica Williams Make Things Uncomfortable for Jemaine Clement

29 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the new movie People Places Things (out August 14), Jemaine Clement plays an unhappily single father of two who's still adjusting to uncoupled life after he caught his ex and their friend in a romantic clinch. Clement's sad professor really needs to put himself out there and learn to love again, but with whom? His student, The Daily Show's Jessica Williams, has an idea: He should come over to her place! In this exclusive clip, you can see Clement react awkwardly to that teacher-on-student idea before Williams reveals that she actually wants to set him up with her mother (Regina Hall). Then, as she becomes aware of Clement's misinterpretation, she drives a stake through that notion of teacher-student canoodling pretty thoroughly and repeatedly. »
