Trevor Noah is going to end The Daily Show's war against Fox News.
That came as a big surprise to me, but I guess it really shouldn't have. Anytime someone takes over a show they want to be able to run it the way they want to and not how their predecessor did.
Noah wants to take the show into a direction that focuses more on the emerging internet driven news and entertainment industry and not just on 24/7 television news channels. It's an interesting concept, but I do wonder how fans that grew so accustomed to Stewart's blistering diatribes against television news in general and Fox News in particular will react.
I will definitely give Noah a chance to stake his claim, but I am one of those loyal Daily Show viewers who does worry if Noah is going to be able to fill the void left behind by the iconic Stewart.
