    Anyone see the first show? Same format as with JS including theme song. I thought Noah looked VERY stiff and sounded like he was reading from queue cards. Hopefully he'll start to feel more comfortable.

    I didn't care for his delivery at all. It just seemed so soft and low-key compared to Jon's delivery (or John Oliver, for that matter). It just seemed so *blah* compared to either Jon or John.

    I thought it was ok. Style was the same. If the jokes are good, it will still be good. The area where he may suffer more is the interview.

    If you remember Jon Stewart was terrible at interviews in the beginning. I thought Noah did a good job considering it was the first show. I think wants he finds his rhythm he'll do just fine.

    Indeed. He does need some time to settle in.

    For the first show I thought it was fine. The overall style of the show seems to be intact, so I'll give him some time to get settled.

    I thought it was pretty good for a first show. Larry Wilmore was pretty stiff for the first few weeks of TNS but he's settled in pretty well. I assume Trevor will too. Although his accent was a bit hard to understand in a few places. Hopefully he works on his enunciation a bit.

    Biggest change is that the Comedy Central standards-and-practices department is leaving the "S" word unbleeped -- which is now consistent with other things airing on Comedy Central (even in the 10:00 hour) and on other cable networks. It was always bleeped in the Jon Stewart era, except for one show that I recall, when he interviewed the author of a book that had it in the title.

    The audience was throwing me off. So many loud laughs and cheers...were they chanting his name at one point? I almost think that was strictly staff in the crowd, seemed too talk soupy.

    I do like that they didn't change the format

    I thought he did quite well. He was humble and as he settles in he will do great. I made a meme of my favorite quote:

    [​IMG]

    Dreams do come true! ;)

    The bit about whoever replaces John (Boehner) having big shoes to fill was clever...nice tribute to Jon Stewart :eek:

    Looking forward to the new era! :D

    I thought Trevor was pretty good. Give him and the people behind the scenes a month to settle in and figure out what works and what doesn't.

    I saw some headlines that were really negative so I was expecting the worst. I thought it was not that bad at all. Some things were clearly overworked (they've been working on this episode for along time now!) but there were still some good bits. The interview with Kevin Hart (who I think is hilarious) was mediocre but that's something that takes a lot of practice I think.

    I'm still bummed about losing JS but I'll keep watching Trevor to see how he does.

    I thought Kevin Hart was a great first interview choice since Trevor didn't actually have to interview him. Just wind Kevin up and let him go.

    I gotta agree with most here. A little rough around the edges, but pretty good for a first show. He's still in the settling in stage.

    Last night, they went back to bleeping the word. They've always been inconsistent with this, not only TDS but on South Park as well. If you remember JS last episode it was completely unbleeped, other times it's bleeped. I do get that perhaps the afternoon showing they might bleep it but at night, it might not be, but I always watch or record the 11PM airing, and I noticed the inconsistency.

    One thing I'm having trouble with (and granted it's only 2 shows), is Trevor talking about US Politics as if he's a native. John Oliver does the same thing, but here's the difference. Oliver was a correspondent for many years on TDS before he got his gig subbing for JS and eventually getting his own gig. TN, has almost no history on TDS (yeah, he was on a couple of episodes) so it just doesn't seem natural coming from him. I also think we accept a Brit commenting on US politics much more than someone from RSA.

    I'm hopeful after awhile and perhaps as we get through the election cycle I'll feel more comfortable with him. Perhaps it would have been better to change the format up a bit instead of him essentially "being" JS.

    I also loved when Trevor said, "Awww...why is he (Boehner) leaving now? I just got here!" BLA HA HA! :D:D:D

    At least Neil Degrasse Tyson will be happy that they finally have the globe spinning in the correct direction in the introduction sequence.

    I think he's doing a pretty good job and will settle in. He seems to be talented and charismatic. That's half the battle. But I would imagine that it takes a little bit of time to settle into a spot that was populated by the likes of JS for so many years.

    I like him. Also loved the line about Boehner leaving. Don't worry, Trevor. There's plenty more where that came from. :D
