    Russell Brand would be perfect for this job ... genuinely politically interested and quick-witted and yet humorously polite to idealogical adversaries as he charmingly disarms them and subsequently puts them in their place.

    There's a fantastic Facebook link that has the headline 'John Stewart leaves Daily Show to take over NBC Nightly News from Brian Williams" it appears to be a link via The Guardian.
    but even better it's a rickroll

    If Russell Brand became host of TDS, the day JS leaves would be the last episode I watch, I just can't stand the guy.

    Oh dear! I tried really hard, and I really do want, to get through that hate-fest of disgusting, putrid, semi-humans, because Brand is great at this. But maybe another time. I really want to see it all when I can handle it without my head exploding.

    And some people wonder why some of us cannot stand religion. Almost every person, of this over-all religion, I know has the same exact sentiment as these people (although they feign disdain for the WBC bunch). They just don't have the 'god hates f*gs' signs. :mad:

    This stuff is hard to have to see/hear, but it's imperative that we do.

    As for TDS, I don't even have any speculation so I'll just have to wait and see.

    I would totally start watching NBC Nightly News if that were true.

    That is hilarious! I'm not a big fan of his frantic style, but that was worth watching. :up:

    Yeah, it's kinda sad and funny at the same time, when he's the smartest and the most reasonable person in a newsroom.

    Jason Jones is leaving TDS. Samantha Bee is staying. I love both of them.

    Tuesday's episode was great -- classic Daily Show (great comedy and biting commentary, delivered in rapid-fire fashion with laser-like precision).

    Last I heard Sam was leaving with Jason, and they're going to produce a show together (Jason stars in it) on TMC or something... has that changed?

    The two are co-exec producing a show for TBS. Jason Jones will star; Samantha is not planned to appear at this time.

    Because Samantha is just exec producing, she will still be able to feature on The Daily Show. However, because Jason is both exec producing and starring, his time would be more limited and wouldn't have the time to also appear on TDS.

    Which leads me to wonder. Once JS leaves TDS, are they going to do a complete reboot with a new cast or keep some of the old cast to keep some continuity. Probably not decided yet.

    I didn't watch in the Kilborn days but did they completely reboot then?

    Colbert was a holdover from the Kilborne days.

    The only one?

    To me, the only ones I'd miss if they let everyone go would be Jessica and The Jones'

    I believe Steve Carrell was as well, but I didn't watch the Kilborn episodes, so I might be mistaken.

    Bill O'Reilly may need a job soon if people keep uncovering his career embellishments.
