Trevor Noah has officially departed “The Daily Show.”
Well, technically he did that back in December, after seven years of hosting the nightly show. Now, a new season is underway, and a new permanent host has yet to be chosen. In Noah’s stead, Comedy Central will have a series of guest hosts, taking over duties for a week at a time.
“Trevor redefined the show, as did Jon Stewart before him, and as we look to the future, we are excited to reimagine it yet again with the help of this incredible list of talent and correspondents along with the immensely talented Daily Show team,” Chris McCarthy, President and CEO of Paramount Media Networks, said in a statement back in December.
