Updated throughout: Remember Comedy Central’s statement last month about Samantha Bee “remaining with” The Daily Show when TBS announced it had nabbed her husband, Jason Jones to do a comedy series for them? Yeah, not so much, TBS responded today, indicating you should take her off your list of candidates to replace Jon Stewart as host. TBS announced it’s signed longtime Daily Show correspondent Bee to host a new comedy show, “cementing its relationship with the prolific… »
Recently, Jason Jones decided to leave The Daily Show to star in the TBS sitcom he and his wife, fellow correspondent Samantha Bee, co-wrote. Turns out she'll be leaving as well — but not just to co-executive produce their sitcom. She'll host her own show on TBS, which has a description that sounds quite similar to what she did on Tds. Cool! Both Bee and Jones will executive produce that show, as well, making TBS a very, very lucky network. »

It won't be The Daily Show With Samantha Bee because Samantha Bee is leaving The Daily Show. Let that sink in for a minute. So…who is still on The Daily Show? Bee is leaving the Comedy Central series to produce and host her own show on TBS. A source told E! News Bee will remain part of The Daily Show family while her TBS show is being developed. Bee and husband Jason Jones are also working on a scripted series for the network. Jones announced his Daily Show departure last month. "For 9 & 1/2 years, I have worked at one of the greatest TV shows of all time. But...It is time for me to go," Jones tweeted. "That said, I am ecstatic to announce that I'm about to make another great show »
Looks like Comedy Central is down one more potential Daily Show anchor.
Samantha Bee, a correspondent for the cabler’s late-night news satire show, will host her own series on TBS, the network announced Thursday.
Bee’s new venture, which is still in the early stages, “is being planned as a platform for Bee to apply her smart and satirical point of view to current and relevant issues,” a release from TBS stated.

The Time Warner-owned network, which has run Conan O’Brien’s latenight program opposite Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” and “Colbert Report,” Thursday unveiled an agreement with longtime “Daily Show” correspondent Samantha Bee that would have her host and executive-produce a series in which she will “apply her smart and satirical point of view to current and relevant issues,” the Time Warner-owned network said in a statement. The new show, the network said, is in the early stages of development.
The move comes as the latenight lineup of Comedy Central is in transition. Stephen Colbert wrapped his series in late 2014 as he shifts to succeed David Letterman at CBS’ “The Late Show.” And “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart has announced he intends to step down from that series between July and the end of 2015.

Samantha Bee is leaving Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” to host her own satirical series, which she will executive produce for TBS alongside husband Jason Jones. The new topical comedy is still in the early stages of development, the Turner cable channel said on Thursday. While not many details of the TBS production are available, the vehicle will allow Bee to apply “her smart and satirical point of view to current and relevant issues,” the network stated.

Hillary Clinton will be the keynote speaker at an upcoming journalism awards ceremony, but the press won’t get a chance to ask her about the brewing email controversy dating back to her role as secretary of state. Clinton is set to speak at the 2015 Toner Prize Celebration on March 23rd. The awards ceremony, named after the late New York Times reporter Robin Toner, will be open to the press but they won’t be able to ask questions.

Jon Stewart has no grave concerns about Hillary Clinton’s personal email use while Secretary of State. Still, he used some “Daily Show” time to make fun of what he sees as a non-scandal, and all of those involved. The “future president” — as Stewart referred to Clinton on Wednesday — did not have an official government email account during her time in office, possibly breaking federal record-keeping rules. Clearly, the Comedy Central figure doesn’t believe this will impact her likely 2016 candidacy.

This is truly the stuff of nightmares. Justin Bieber appeared in a new promo for his upcoming Comedy Central roast with “Roast Master General” Jeffrey Ross. In a spoof of Bieber’s Calvin Klein ads, he and Ross appeared shirtless together with Bieber playing the drums.

After the buyouts of 2014 and David Carr’s death in February, the New York Times announced its new media desk Thursday. Deputy Media editor Bill Brink, with the Times since 2011, has been promoted to media editor, helping all media coverage. Brink will report to Peter Lattman, who became deputy business editor in October. Business Day weekend editor, Connor Ennis, will become Brink’s deputy.

"Future President Hillary Clinton may have to pardon former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton," Jon Stewart predicted at the top of The Daily Show Wednesday night, before acting awfully disappointed at the minutia of the Hillary Clinton email controversy. "It seems like less of a scandal and more of like a nerd snap like, 'She's so old, she doesn't have an official email account." »

As with the vast majority of other entries into the genre, this snippet features that scene; where the infected spanner gets thrown into the works and all hell breaks loose. Starring Jesse Metcalfe and Keegan Connor Tracy, we see the show’s main characters begin to piece together the puzzle to discover that, much like the title suggests, the dead are indeed beginning to rise up for a spot of lunch.
Mixing some interesting cinematography with first-person shots, Dead Rising: Watchtower is decidedly low-key, and that’s precisely the angle Lipovsky is aiming for. The fact that his adaptation is hitting the web as a digital release will no doubt allow for more creative freedom outside of the typical studio system, and we hope that the writing »

Yes, the big political news on Tuesday was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s congressional address — but Jon Stewart found offensive nuance within CNN’s graphics department that took slight precedent on Comedy Central’s “Daily Show.” While debating President Obama’s plan to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran, CNN used the Star of David as its wipe transition, going from a taped segment back to live coverage. Stewart called the effect “patronizing.” Also Read: Jon Stewart Delivers a Low Blow to Seth Rollins on WWE’s ‘Monday Night Raw’ (Video) “Are you kidding me?” he asked rhetorically. “That actually happened on CNN. »

Jon Stewart had plenty of fun with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to the United States. Netanyahu addressed Congress, arguing that President Barack Obama shouldn't be negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran. Critics called the speech an extended campaign speech for the prime minister. Netanyahu came at the invitation of Republican leadership, with Obama suggesting if the tables were reversed and Democratic leadership had invited the President of France during the Iraq War, Republicans would have called it disrespectful to President George W. Bush. Stewart took it a step further. "They would have gone f—ing bananas. Republicans would have demanded the inviters be arrested

The search for Jon Stewart’s successor appears to be intensifying.
With several obvious candidates for Stewart’s “Daily Show” seat ruling themselves out as candidates, the likelihood is growing that Comedy Central will have to give stronger consideration to an external applicant.
One contributor to “The Daily Show,” Jessica Williams, recently took to Twitter to declare herself “unqualified” for the job. Jason Jones, one of the program’s faux correspondents, recently announced he would leave the program to star in and produce a new series for Time Warner’s TBS. His wife, longtime “Daily Show” player Samantha Bee, will stay with the program but will also have a producer role on the new show.
Other people who have been cited as potential successors in social-media speculation are also out of the running: Joel McHale is currently under contract at E!, and John Oliver, a former “Daily Show” contributor, recently »

Guess Jon Stewart has found something to do after he leaves The Daily Show. The host made his debut on WWE Raw, responding to a feud with wrestler Seth Rollins that started when Rollins claimed he could host The Daily Show better than Stewart. After that, Stewart responded, and then Rollins even crashed the Moment of Zen. But where better to settle this war than in the ring? Stewart can certainly pull of the dramatics. Wrestling is hilarious! »

We are into March and it is only a little more than a month until WrestleMania 31 in California. Last week was one of the times when I felt like I’d wasted time watching Raw, so I was hoping the Road to WrestleMania might take a more interesting and entertaining turn tonight, and I’m glad to say that, for the most-part, it did.
With the same old matches now being booked again, and some surprising things happening, this episode of Raw from New Jersey was good. It wasn’t great, but some of the parts of it were, and we’ll get into that in this column.

Jon Stewart and WWE star Seth Rollins' rivalry came to a head last night on Monday Night Raw. It started a few weeks back when Rollins said he could do anything he wanted in the future, including taking over as host of The Daily Show! Stewart warned the athlete he'd "just stepped in a world of hurt," saying, "This is the biggest mistake you've ever made, coming after The Daily Show!" Then last week, the political humorist was in for a bit of a surprise when Rollins showed up on the set of The Daily Show and challenged him to a fight on Monday Night Raw at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. When Monday evening rolled around, Rollins thought the comedian was too scared to show his »
