It was back in February that we found out that Jon Stewart would be stepping down as host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.

One of the top wishlist choices to replace him before Trevor Noah was given the job, was former correspondent John Oliver, but he of course had already left for a solid new gig at HBO, Last Week Tonight. But in an interesting turn of events, Stewart will actually be joining Oliver at HBO. It’s being reported that Stewart has signed an exclusive four-year production deal with the network.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah

Comedy Central has released the first teaser for The Daily Show with new host Trevor Noah. Previous host Jon Stewart recently departed the show after over 16 years at the desk.

The teaser is basically just a brief comical representation of this rather monumental changing of the guard, and a reminder of the date that the show returns to the air with Noah now running things.

You can check it out below.

Farewell, Jon Stewart: The Last ‘Daily Show’

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in a family that ritualistically watched ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings. I loved history and journalism, and ended up teaching high school level history. The calming, straight forward, no nonsense, nonpartisan news days have long since passed. With the advent and expansion of cable news, and the big money filing in, it’s incredibly difficult to find real, genuine news. As channels like Fox News went over-the-top conservative, stations like MSNBC had to hit back equally to the left. 16 years ago a phoenix rose over the garbage heap of the phony “real” news and gave us the greatest fake news show ever. 16 years after taking over for Craig Kilborn, Jon Stewart left The Daily Show last night, in perfect circumstances… as the Republicans were holding their first Presidential debates on Fox News.

Jon Stewart's Rosewater

Last year came word that Jon Stewart would be taking the summer off from his duties as the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show to make a movie.

That movie is titled Rosewater, and it stars Gael Garcia Bernal as a journalist who is held prisoner and interrogated for being a spy. It’s based on the true story of Maziar Bahari, and is of great importance to Stewart personally as one of the reasons Bahari was accused of being a spy is because he was a guest on The Daily Show.

Now the first trailer for Rosewater has been released, and you can watch it and read a full synopsis below.

‘The Minority Report With Larry Wilmore’ To Replace ‘The Colbert Report’

BAADASSSSS!   |

Larry Wilmore

The 11:30pm weeknight timeslot won’t be such a bad place to be even after The Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert ends his popular late-night Comedy Central satirical news program sometime next year (prior to its 10th anniversary) and takes over hosting CBS’ Late Show from the retiring David Letterman.

Launching early next year in Colbert’s old timeslot will be The Minority Report, hosted by Larry Wilmore. Wilmore, best known to loyal viewers of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as the “Senior Black Correspondent” since 2006, has also written in the past for comedy series like In Living Color and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and co-created the Eddie Murphy-starring, clay-animated sitcom The PJs and The Bernie Mac Show (which he also produced) for the Fox Network. Over the course of his career in television, Wilmore has been nominated for three Emmys, winning one for Bernie Mac, and received the prestigious Peabody Award in 2001 for the same series. In 2009, Wilmore published his first book, I’d Rather We Got Casinos and Other Black Thoughts, and as an actor he has had small roles in I Love You, Man and Dinner for Schmucks.

Patrick Stewart Jade Rabbit Moon Rover Daily Show

China’s Jade Rabbit Moon Rover, the country’s first moon rover, made a “soft” landing on the Moon (the first since 1976) back in December, but last week, the space vehicle suffered a technical malfunction and isn’t expected to make it back to Earth.

Lest you think this 6-wheeled lunar rover is merely a piece of cold machinery, look no further than to social media, where Jade Rabbit has been sending messages about its lonely imminent lunar death, delivering a farewell to the inhabitants of Earth, leaving not one dry eye on the planet.

Jon Stewart joked about the situation on last night’s episode of The Daily Show, initially making light of the rover’s situation, but then Sir Patrick Stewart appeared as the Jade Rabbit sending its dying message from the Moon. As if just reading the rover’s statements weren’t sad enough, just wait until you hear it performed by Stewart. Check out the video here below.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart World of Warcraft

For those who have not yet heard, the NSA surveillance scandal apparently goes deeper than just phones and e-mail. A new report claims that agent shave been planted in games such as World of Warcraft and Second Life to spy on gamers.

So of course this was something far too tempting for Jon Stewart and his team at The Daily Show, including correspondent Aasif Mandvi, to take on in a recent episode.

You can watch the video of their take on the story below!

If you’re one of those people who feel lost whenever Jon Stewart‘s Comedy Central news show The Daily Show goes on break for a couple of weeks, get ready for a much lengthier break…sort of.

It’s being reported that Stewart will be taking the summer off from hosting the show—about twelve weeks when it’s all said and done—but it won’t be a vacation spent lounging around on a tropical island somewhere. Stewart is taking the time off to make his debut as a feature film director on a movie titled Rosewater.
