AceShowbiz - "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" gets premiere date. Comedy Central announces Trevor Noah will replace Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show" starting September 28. In a new promo video, Noah is seen getting comfortable in Stewart's chair.
The last episode of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" will air on August 6. "I'm thrilled for the show and for Trevor," the 52-year-old host previously said. "In fact, I may rejoin as a correspondent just to be a part of it!!!" He took over the show from Craig Kilborn in 1999.
"@Trevornoah starts his new job September 28. Late night will NEVER BE THE SAME. Or maybe it will. Watch to find out," Comedy Central tweeted.
Trevor, 31, landed the hosting gig in March. Shortly afterwards, he faced backlash over past Twitter jokes targeting women and Jews. "To reduce my views to a handful of jokes that didnít land is not a true reflection of my character, nor my evolution as a comedian," he responded.
