Recently, Jason Jones announced he was leaving The Daily Show for his own show he’s producing/writing with his wife Samantha Bee. While we haven’t known whether Bee would jump from TDS with Jones but now it appears she is indeed leaving but it’s for her own show as well.
The new topical comedy show is still in the early stages of development, the Turner cable channel said on Thursday. While not many details of the TBS production are available, the vehicle will allow Bee to apply “her smart and satirical point of view to current and relevant issues,” the network stated.
Late night on Comedy Central will look very different in the next few months. It’s a testament to what Jon Stewart has built during his time on the network. Identifying and showcasing a steady stream of comedic talent that’s only rivaled by the likes of SNL. The Comedy Central brass have some mighty big shoes to fill, or, even possibly, start something completely different. Maybe it’s now this marks the rise of Chris Hardwick and his band of merry nerds?
