    "More people get their news from the daily show than any other news source". John Stewart: "DON"T DO THAT". Haha, always made me laugh.

    I know I've told the story before, but... I was at an election night party in 08. We were flipping through the channels, but none of the major news outlets had the guts to call it for fear of repeating Gore! no Bush! no... no... no... So we parked it on the Stewart/Colbert election special and they called it for Obama. Thinking they were doing a bit, we quickly flipped through the networks, and they still weren't committing. A pair of comedians were better newsmen that night than the actual journalists.

    A few minutes later, someone I'd never seen before, nor after, walked up to me and stated, "This is the first time in my life that I'm proud to be American". Then, like an apparition, he disappeared into the darkness.

    Cable shows are tough these days. A lot of people donít even pay a cable bill so viewership will always be lower compared to 10+ years ago in my opinion.

    I didnít mind Trevor, I liked most of his intro segments and Ronnie Chang and those guys.

    Hated his interviews, his rambling questions made me cringe, I stopped watching his interviews.

    Does anyone find any of these guys funny, entertaining or informative? I can barely watch the clips people send me let alone a whole show.

    Likely the same applies to people who think Noah is a ďPOSĒ.

    Well, I really like Trevor.
    I guess the only caveat is that I like comedians in general.

    I like Schumer, but that was weak Schumer. Not a FoxNEWs fan.

    At first I was butt hurt that they didn't pass the job down to someone more vested there in TDS like Samatha or Colbert.. But, Noah is smart, funny and genuine. It just got old... same infuriating shit... fucking infuriating and exhausting content material that needs to be delivered... If we give up, they win and the post truth world is here forever. Trevor did a good job of telling the truth. Let him take a break... Next..

    This shit right here was GOLD!

    The tabloids say he is dating Dua Lipa, which could be a full time job.

    Here is Trevor Noah at the White House corespondents dinner recently. Thigh slapping funny. The zinger at the end nearly made me wet my pants.

    Stewart took the Daily Show and turned it into something new and unique. It started as sarcastic, fluffy celebrity coverage with Kilborn, and Stewart moved away from that (fairly slowly, at first). It felt like an organic evolution at the time, but it took a ton of vision and work on his part, and he had a great team behind him. Everyone remembers what TDS became fondly because it was refreshingly different.

    Trevor Noah is entirely adequate and has his moments, but he hasn't created anything new. His version of TDS is just one of a number of shows that continue to walk the path that Stewart created. Which doesn't mean it's bad TV, it's just not that exciting or revelatory. And when TDS was essentially the only show offering pointed, humorous political commentary, it felt influential. Now, when TDS is one of many outlets offering that sort of commentary, that influence is pretty diluted.

    What also made him unique and good was his African perspective on the US shit show.

    Shockingly old white men donít like Trevor Noah.

    Like most things, your nostalgia for things past are rooted only in a fondness of your younger days and not because the product was better. Go watch some re-runs of Johnny Carson and see how long it takes before you actually laugh. Thatís not to say he wasnít great in his time but the idea his humor would hold up today is misplaced.

    Political division hurt that show the last 5yrs. There was a time when everyone watched tds, I think the show originally attracted all. And although it’s Hard not to knock everything going on but he wasn’t like Colbert mostly mocking shit, he preached. That made it unwatchable for any part of the other half.

    Another career suicide. I’m sure he’ll do fine though.

    You know what I mean, He killed the show. Everyone liked Stewart, right or left. That was talent, and a different time I guess. He took his position way too seriously, he preached his moral baloney every damn day. Fuck that douche.

    The good news is tds might actually be funny and chill again.

    While I agree that Stewart was universally enjoyed, I'm not so sure that it was Noah that killed the show, but rather the suits and the writing staff behind the scenes. As others have said already, Noah's standup can actually be really funny and the guy IS talented. Outside of the Daily Show, he's a much more likeable person. I'd say it was the show that brought HIM down and not the other way around. Much like SNL. There are some EXTREMELY talented, hilarious people on there, but too often these days, they're held back by the writers and execs telling them what they can and can't say. Compare that to the show's glory days of the 70s-90s when they could get away with SSSOOOOOO much more and the show was all the better for it.

    Nowadays, corporate late night comedy be like:

    Yea. Stewart let the news satirize itself. Noah beat you over the head with it. But maybe MF is right as I've seen Noah be super funny. Even the best performer can't fix shit writing.
