From what I understand Stewart had been trying to get Noah on the show for a while.  I think it's highly probable Stewart picked this guy, and his recent addition late last year was only to get his name in front of the usual audience.  I don't think anyone can fill Stewart's shoes, but then, Stewart took a completely different show and changed it into his own thing and if anything he's shown he can pick comedic talent.  I'm more than willing to give Noah a shot, and if I'm wrong that'll be a shame but not the end of the world.  Oliver is at the very least a spiritual successor.

Some people have been calling him anti-Semitic because of some tweets and others are defending him cause he says his mom is "half Jewish".

Best way for him to not be castrated in the media is to be as jewish as he can.  I think that tweet strategy is sound.  awesome, for real
I'm gonna give Noah a chance because that's essentially what we had to do with Stewart; and look what happened.  Also, there's something about a bi-racial underwear model south-african waxing political that gives me the giggles.  There is some carte blanche he'll have because of that.

Regardless, it's obvious they want to shift demographics.  They'll lose some viewers and gain some others.  A net loss to be sure, but not a total one I surmise.

“Don’t you think the perfect choice to replace that Jon Stewart fella would have been you?” asked George Lucas at a Tribeca Film Festival panel. “And now you’re working at Late Show where nobody sees you. Who stays up past 1 a.m.? Wouldn’t you say, I’m taking over the crown?”

Colbert replied, “I don’t want to be the guy who takes over for Jon Stewart. I’ve worked with him, and my memories of him is that he’s the keenest, most intelligent, most beautifully deconstructive mind—the clearest thinker I ever worked for. I would never get underneath his shadow. Someone else who doesn’t love him as much might have a better time on that show than I ever would.”

CC is re-running all the Daily Shows for the whole of the last month of it. As I type he's getting ready for W's inauguration.

So first impression of Trevor Noah is he seems quite charismatic.  His first show is too soon to say how funny and/or biting the overall show will be with him, but I can say he has a very long way to go with the interviews.  I already like Noah way more than Larry Wilmore at least.

Over and out.

Really? I like Larry's show now - at first I didn't, but I like the new format.

I think Wilmore's show has found its feet. It had some awkwardness at first but the format is growing on me. It's not as funny as Colbert was, but it's still worth watching.

I liked the first Trevor Noah episode of the Daily Show as well. He's not Jon Stewart but he's funny in his own right.

Not the Daily Show, but Jon was on Colbert and rekindled a bit of his old self.

Daily Show should have died when Jon left. Trevor is fine, but he can't fill that seat.

Noah sucks. Can't really watch the show anymore. Wilmore is aight, even if it is a pretty hard FUBU bias (and he whines a little as an annoying tic).

TDS should've gone to John Oliver, who is absolutely killing it with his new series that's on some pay channel but I watch on Youtube. Spiritual successor to TDS imo.

Agreed. But I really think TDS should have ended and Trevor's show should have been something else. Problem with that would have been too many spinoffs of the show. Oliver is fantastic, and was filling in for Jon when he was off making his movie. That said, I think Last Week Tonight works better for Oliver rather than having TDS-lite with John Oliver.

Last Week Tonight works so well because they can laser focus on a few stories instead of shotgunning multiples. I like Trevor Noah and Wilmore both but their shows aren't as good. But there's no way Comedy Central was going to kill The Daily Show, seeing as how it was a consistent ratings getter for them for over a decade. Keep the money spinner spinning.

If you haven't watched it, Sam Bee's show Full Frontal is KILLING it. It is almost as good as Last Week Tonight.

I keep forgetting about hers. I'm not good with tv, even though CC is my power-on channel.

Samantha Bee *Full Frontal* show is OK -- I think she needs to cool it on the coke or pep pills or whatever she's gulping down to prance around the stage like a maniac.

Trevor Noah show is OK too -- & sometimes he hits a comedy note in the league of what Stewart used to do. Stewart wasn't "always on" either in his time on the show, especially toward the end (not final shows which he was amped up for, but last year or two) he seemed to be phoning it in.

But the difference was while Noah still concocts some funny bits on the news in the vein of what Stewart did, Stewart was less about commenting on the news than deconstructing the ideological markers in cable/network news. He taught a generation (millennials and gen-x) how to see through bullshit and exposed banality of evil. That's a feat, that Noah being an immigrant, is incapable of.

Larry Wilmore opening bits are better than all rest (usually, he swings and misses sometimes) sans maybe John Oliver (but doing a show once a week it's easier to hit than 4X a week) but the rest of the show is awful. His "correspondents" are not funny at all (except the dude that does a pretty good Trump impersonation) and the panel deal wreaks of "try too hard".

Larry's show isn't comedy to me though. It's more a commentary show, which is fine if that's what you're looking for. Personally, I like it, but I'm also not looking for it to be stinging barbs or yuks every minute.
