We’ve known for a while now that Jon Stewart was ending his run as host of The Daily Show. But until this moment, the comedian’s timeline of departure wasn’t completely known, until tonight. As he signed off of Monday’s ep of The Daily Show, Stewart made the announcement as part of his promise to keep us up to date, and with said promise revealed that his last night as host will be on Thursday, August 6th.
August is usually a hiatus time for the show, so more than likely the show will go on hiatus for a week or two then Trevor Noah will assume the role as host of The Daily Show. Mark the calendars.
