‘The Daily Show’ Shakeup: Jason Jones Announces Departure Following Jon Stewart

24 February 2015 11:55 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Weeks after Jon Stewart announced his resignation from “The Daily Show,” longtime correspondent Jason Jones broke the news that he’ll be following in his footsteps.

Jones tweeted Tuesday that he will exit the show, in which he worked with his wife Samantha Bee, who’s been a correspondent since 2003, after nearly a decade.

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. 1/2

That said, I am ecstatic to announce that I’m about to make another great show over @tbsveryfunny 2/2

Bee will remain on the “The Daily Show,” a spokesperson for Comedy Central confirmed to Variety via email.

The news of Jones’ exit comes the same day his comedy was picked up by TBS. The untitled family comedy was given a 10-episode order, and will star Jones, »

Joel McHale on ‘Daily Show’ Job: ‘I Don’t Think I’m Smart Enough’

12 February 2015 5:24 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Joel McHale has been bandied about as a replacement for Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show,” but “The Soup” host said he’s not interested in the role.

“I don’t think I’m smart enough to do the job,” he told Variety. “I think I come off as being smart. But deep down I’m really not. Plus, I’ve just signed on for two more years at E!, and I’m having a ball on that show. And E! has been incredibly good.”

Contract issues aside, McHale said “The Soup” couldn’t be more different from “The Daily Show.”

Jon Stewart deals with large, very important issues,” he said. “We obsess about the weirdos on ‘The Bachelor’ who do ghost adventures and look for Bigfoot. So I think the show would not be up to the intellectual standards that everyone is looking for.”

McHale said he was shocked »

7 Hosts Who Could Replace Jon Stewart at ‘The Daily Show’

11 February 2015 9:13 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

First Letterman’s leaving. Then Colbert goes in Dave’s stead. And now you’re taking Jon Stewart away from me too?!? Damn you Late Night Gods!

Still, we most soldier on, and we have about a solid year left with Stewart, and that gives us plenty of time to find a solid replacement. Here are just a few nominees from the Sound on Sight staff.

Amy Poehler

Why does Jon Stewart have to leave? Now where will we learn about the news? It seems hard to fathom him not being there, but it looks like it will be a reality. While there are many correspondents on his show that they could move forward with, let’s look at the landscape of late night and ask what we need more of: girls. And what girl would be better than Amy Poehler. With Parks and Recreation finishing up, »

Joel McHale Picks His Dream Guest Star on The Soup, Opens Up About His Charitable Partnership With Fitbit and Feeding America

5 February 2015 3:14 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Joel McHale has welcomed many big name guest stars to his E! show The Soup, but there's one celebrity he'd give anything to have on the show. Taylor Swift. But not for any personal reasons...it's all about the pop star's Twitter following! "I'd want whoever has the most Twitter followers!" McHale tells E! News. "Who would that be, Taylor Swift? Taylor Swift, just out of sheer media power. She would tweet that to like, 100 million followers! So that tweet would reach 100 million people and it would probably increase ratings. It sounds pretty Machiavellian and cold, but damn it I have to get the word out there and she would really help!" And after the "Blank »
