“The Daily Show” has finally found its footing after grappling with the challenge of replacing Noah, who bid farewell after an impressive seven-season stint in December 2022.
The timing couldn't be more ironic as Noah clinched his first Emmy Award just days after concluding his tenure on the popular satirical news programme, where he obviously killed his role.
The South African comedic sensation has not only gracefully stepped down but has also taken a moment to extend his heartfelt congratulations to the legendary Jon Stewart, who is making a comeback to the show.
Noah's departure left a void, however, the anticipation and excitement surrounding Stewart's return have injected new life into the beloved programme.
Stewart, known for his sharp wit and astute political commentary, previously served as the show's host for an illustrious 16 years, building a dedicated fan base and earning critical acclaim.

Stewart's return comes at a time when the landscape of late-night television is evolving, with viewers craving both familiarity and fresh perspectives.
His seasoned experience and established rapport with the audience makes him a compelling choice to guide “The Daily Show” through its next chapter.
Fans of the show are eagerly anticipating how Stewart will bring his unique flavour back to the satirical news format.
