The Daily Show Could Have Rotating Hosts Following Trevor Noah's Exit From the Series
With Trevor Noah leaving “The Daily Show” after serving as its host for the last seven years, many have been speculating about who will be Noah’s successor. The show’s broadcaster, Comedy Central, is currently undergoing significant changes, with parent company Paramount Global signaling the next wave of the show will come as part of a “reinvention” for the channel.
According to a Variety report, part of the new wave is possibly introducing a rotating cast of hosts rather than finding a permanent replacement for Noah — it should be noted that these plans aren’t confirmed yet. “The Daily Show” has many current correspondents who would be more than suitable candidates if Comedy Central decides on a single host.
However, as late-night talk shows begin to lose their audiences, implementing a new format with a constant rotation of hosts on “The Daily Show” could help it feel fresh and new for the current audience. “The Daily Show” will go on hiatus following Noah’s final episode on December 9, 2022, and the series will return on January 17, 2023.
