    I am a big Daily Show fan and I really enjoyed the Jon Stewart era but after watching the new guy from South Africa Trevor it seems kind of obvious that the show is funny due to its writers not to his host....

    I guess in hindsight I should have been obvious since the show didn't miss a beat after its first host left

    I don't like the new guy and every show is the writing first.

    I don't think this proves Stewart isn't funny. He'll get another show sooner or later. Time will tell.

    He did 20 minutes a day and had a guest spot. How hard can it be to write for that show?

    John Stewart is an annoying hypocritical dick ashamed of his Jewish ancestry.

    Dude, the new guy is un-watchable. I can't make it 5 minutes.

    I have not seen the new guy
    but john stewart is a funny guy

    Limbaugh and o'reilly are good at what they do-and stewart and maher are good at what they do

    not all comedians --but all political entertainers

    but I have not seen one second of the new guy yet

    I can't imagine how much of a ratings decline Comedy Central has endured since Colbert and Stewart left. I was a die hard viewer and I don't watch anymore, maybe a younger audience is flocking to the channel but I think not. Anybody have a feel for this?

    The show lost being funny about 10 years ago. Its the same self serving bullshit every night. They know their audience just wants to hear the same stuff "jokes" every night and thats what they do. Its beyond boring at this point and only plays to a small audience and looking at the ratings its a audience that seems to get smaller and smaller.

    Its doing awful pulling in a 0.80 right now and Larry Wilmore show after is losing half that audience doing a 0.40. The same mocking anyone who disagrees with you and Fox News jokes tend to get boring to most people.

    Are you forgetting the /sarcasm tag at the end of that? Because so far, the exact opposite of what you're saying is true, Trevor Noah is fucking god awful.

    His delivery is so flop-sweat bad in fact that I've been forcing myself to watch an episode at least once or twice a week because I'm convinced it *has* to get better at some point. Not happened so far.

    Stewart had great writers yes but the lines would've been nothing without his style of delivery. Trevor is monument to that.
