Should someone take Jon Stewart's place on the Daily Show? or should they just cancel it?
How do you top Jon? I'd say bring back John Oliver, but he's under contract with HBO for a couple of years. Who do you think could fill Jon's shoes? anyone? or should comedy central just scrap the daily show after Jon leaves?
I want Brian Williams to take Jon's place! He's absolutely perfect.
disagree, taking Jon's place requires someone who will tell the truth with humor. That whole truth thing would automatically disqualify most "journalists" from any major network
I disagree - The Daily Show is all about the Fake News!
ok we get it you're conservative good for you . Just kidding - sadly, the fake news had a lot more realism to it than "actual" news - but that's a whole other topic.
That was the point I was trying to make. The 'fake' news is so much better than the 'real' news :-) And Brian Williams is just as funny as Jon Stewart. Watch and see. I'm psychic that way.
Is he funny seriously? I'll have to delve into some footage somewhere. If he was funny maybe, but yeah, still can't see it in my mind. plus then the "fake" news would lose more "truthiness" because of his tarnished reputation. hmmm.
I don't know whether Brian is funny either. However, I'll bet we can all make a safe assumption, he's not laughing at this particular time. Poor Brian. I do agree ladies, the Daily Show news is much better & funnier than real news. REAL news?
How about Bill Mahr? He's a news satirist! But he already has his own show, so I'm guessing not.
Sorry to say this, but I think the Daily Show went into the attic trunk permanently when Jon said, "Good Bye." He WAS the Daily Show. I can't imagine a single person who could take over and make the huge impression Jon has. Only Jon....that's it. He & his show will most definitely go down in History. Looks like all that matters now is Daily Show Reruns!!
Personalities like Jon Stewart can't really be replaced. A replacement show needs to be developed that matches the strength of the new anchor. Getting someone be Jon Stewart is crazy.
I'm not sure who would replace him but I can imagine Comedy Central would like to have a "brand" type of show that goes on similar to "The Tonight Show" or "SNL" where hosts and casts may change over the years but the show itself remains a staple.
When Johnny Carson left "The Tonight Show" Jay Leno came aboard and now he's gone and Jimmy Fallon is carrying the torch. Naturally everyone will say who their favorite host or cast was for a particular show but it does not mean the show has to be killed because of changes. History has proven this time and time again.
I think it's a foregone conclusion that the show will continue without Jon. He wasn't the first host of the Daily Show and they even joked on the Nightly Show about Larry Wilmore replacing him (he said he didn't want the gig). It's true that Jon Stewart has guided the ship into prosperous waters (and was behind the Colbert Report) but that doesn't mean it can't have a new host. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he stays on as a producer for all the shows he helped build (and maybe new ones after that). Personally I think the next host of the Daily Show should be a woman (possibly Samantha Bee or Kristen Schaal). Jon Stewart always put in the extra effort to diversify his crew, and I think this would be a big leap forward for the show and the genre of comedy.

Why is banning fake news bad?What about The Onion? Or The Daily Show? Are we going to ban sarcasm as in North Korea? Isn't political sarcasm one of the foundations of US? Satire and parody are important forms of political commentary that rely on blurring the line between truth and outrageousness....
