Trevor Noah Debuts On The Daily Show – MMXLII

Trevor Noah Debuts On The Daily Show

Trevor Noah officially became the host of The Daily Show when the camera rolled on Monday. The Daily Show has been one of, if not the preeminent nightly show that talks about politics, social issues, and more for over a decade thanks to Jon Stewart. Needless to say, Noah had some pretty big shoes to fill and by all accounts has gotten out of the gates quite smoothly.

With that being said, it is ridiculous for someone to try and make a sweeping judgement on whether Noah can replace Stewart after just two nights, but he’s off to a good start. Andy Greenwald of Grantland.com had this to say regarding the topic

Noah’s capacity to assuage the neurosis of a nation of embittered liberals, his willingness to punch up at power instead of blowing raspberries at the puerile, his ability to accept a box of ties with something resembling gratitude: All of this, today, remains TBD. Last night offered precious few hints of Noah’s own sense of humor, let alone his politics. But the suits at Comedy Central are popping bottles of South African shiraz in the executive suite this morning nonetheless for one reason and one reason alone: Noah, without question, is a star.

He’s already got people coming back to see what they think of him, which is an accomplishment in of itself. Best of luck to Noah and the entire Daily Show staff.
