No doubt you’ve heard of this already. I was quite surprised by it. For whatever reason, Stewart seemed like the type to make The Daily Show his lifetime gig. But as he says in his announcement, seventeen years is a long time. He says he’ll leave sometime later in the year.
So the Report is gone, and soon TDS as we know it will be gone. What will happen to The Daily Show? Will it end, or will it simply change hosts, as it did once upon a time when Stewart took over? If the latter, I’d like to suggest Jessica Williams and Samantha Bee.
For now, we still have The Daily Show, hosted by Jon Stewart, so I won’t say goodbye just yet.
