Jon Stewart Stepping Down as ‘Daily Show’ Host
http://www.thewrap.com/jon-stewart-stepping-down-as-daily-show-host

It soon will be an end of a great era in political satire. We'll see how Larry Wilmore and John Oliver carry their respective torches on their own fake news programs.

Who do you think should take over Jon Stewart's hosting chair to the Daily Show when he finally steps down and leaves?

Amy Poehler or Tina Fey.

@Butrflynet,
Wonderful choices butrflynet! Tina Fey would be brilliant. Both of them are also effectively out of work (Amy Poehler, especially since Parks and Recreation is finishing its final season).

I'm hoping for Samantha Bee to take the chair.

Sarah Silverman would also be a good candidate for the show host.

Thinking of the 'reporters' on the show I have soft spots for many - particularly Asif Mandvi, Sam Bee and Wyatt Cenac. John Oliver of course stands alone (and Colbert obviously)

The current crop are pretty good, Jess Williams and Jordan Klepper show promise but I don't think either is ready.

I agree with that tweet

Dear Mr Stewart I'm sorry we cannot accept your resignation at this time.


And how true is this....

@tsarstepan,
I think Andrew Sullivan, The Dish, started this. Key person, whatever you think of him. He quit last week. Not that he influenced Stewart. Just that they had similar stuff with the long history of shows/blogs. Maybe similar takes as friends.

Trevor Noah makes an appearance on Jerry Seinfeld's pitch perfect webshow!

After watching this particular episode? I feel much more better about his hiring as host of the Daily Show.
