The Daily Show won't return until the end of September, but Comedy Central has released new promotional material to help fans with the wait. The show's social media accounts have largely been quiet since Stewart's departure, leaving a notable gap in satire news coverage. There was some activity earlier this week, however, giving fans something to enjoy while waiting for the show's return.
New host Trevor Noah's face has now replaced former host Jon Stewart's on most of The Daily Show's social media accounts, including Facebook and twitter.
A new logo debuted on the show's Facebook page, featuring updated graphics and the premiere date of September 28th.https://www.facebook.com/thedailyshow/photos/a.10150770034581800.469979.7976226799/10153526679886800/?type=1
The show also released a brief promotional video promising the "same chair, different ass" and giving a glimpse at the new set:https://twitter.com/TheDailyShow/status/633669939757514752
Stewart announced his intention to leave The Daily Show earlier this year, and hosted his last episode on August 6. After a lot of speculation, Noah was announced in May to be Stewart's replacement on the popular satire show. The two shot a hilarious teaser video at the time:https://youtu.be/AoPToNd4l1U&h=500
Noah began his career in South Africa as an entertainment host and comedian. He has opened for famous stand-up acts such as Gabriel Iglesias and Russell Peters, and was the first South African comedian on both The Tonight Show and the Late Show with David Letterman. Noah began working at The Daily Show in 2014 as a regular contributor. He will make his debut as host on September 28 at 11:00 p.m.
