When Jon Met Trevor
August 8, 2015  | By Eric Gould
 
The old late night guard is definitely departing. Craig Ferguson left CBS last year, Letterman followed this year and last Thursday night, Jon Stewart finished 16 years on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. So, it’s time for the young guns to take over and we’ll be watching. Here’s Stewart introducing new correspondent Trevor Noah to Daily Show viewers last December (before he was announced as Stewart’s replacement 3 months later) and they played “Spot the Africa” — with Stewart trying to figure out which was America or Africa in two photos. Noah maybe has the tougher job and a more critical audience over James Corden (The Late Late Show) and Stephen Colbert (The Late Show) since he’ll be taking over the late night political satire that so many rely on for its deadpan accuracy — even though Stewart often referred to it as “the fake news.” —Eric Gould
