Trevor Noah Announces 'The Daily Show' Exit Date



The Daily Show host's tenure will come to an end on Thursday, December 8.

It comes after the comedian shocked everyone, including his Paramount Global boss Chris McCarthy and his coworkers, when he announced his retirement during an afternoon taping on September 29.

Noah startled late-night fans by announcing his departure from the Comedy Central series, although there was no clear strategy in place, with no leave date disclosed last month.

That has now been resolved, and he will host the show for the next few months.

The Daily Show will resume in January on Tuesday, January 17, with the business promising "more details."

Beginning December 5, the show will include a "celebratory look back at his best moments."

Noah will be in Atlanta with his group to cover the midterm elections, where the program will be on the road.

Noah executive produces the program with Jen Flanz and Jill Katz.

"Trevor is a brilliant artist who has made an indelible impact on The Daily Show, and we're thankful for his creative cooperation over the past seven years,"

Chris McCarthy, President and CEO of Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios, also commented.
