Dec 18, 2022

Fans of The Daily Show are saying goodbye to Trevor Noah, and while the show will go dark for the rest of the year following his exit, we now know who will be filling in after the start of the new year. Officially, Noah’s curtain call will be with the Dec. 8 episode, and The Daily Show will return on Jan. 17, 2023. As a permanent host hasn’t yet been named, various comedy names, along with The Daily Show correspondents and contributors, will be filling in on an alternating basis.

Per Comedy Central, confirmed names that will serve as guest hosts for the upcoming episodes include Al Franken, Chelsea Handler, D.L. Hughley, Leslie Jones, John Leguizamo, Hasan Minhaj, Kal Penn, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, and Marlon Wayans. Additional details are soon to be announced, though the network has addressed the decision to go with guest hosts for now.
“As we enter Trevor’s final week, we want to thank him for his many contributions,“ Chris McCarthy, President/CEO Paramount Media Networks, said in a statement. “Trevor redefined the show, as did Jon Stewart before him, and as we look to the future, we are excited to reimagine it yet again with the help of this incredible list of talent and correspondents along with the immensely talented Daily Show team.”

The show’s comedic news team, which we will continue to see moving forward, includes Ronny Chieng, Michael Kosta, Desi Lydic, Dulce Sloan, Roy Wood Jr., Lewis Black, and Jordan Klepper. Jen Flanz serves as showrunner, writer, and executive producer.

Trevor Noah Leaves After Seven Years

Comedy Central

On Sept. 29, Trevor Noah announced on the show that he was preparing to leave from his job as host after seven years. It was a decision that he hadn’t even told anyone involved with the show about before he made the announcement while filming. Noah later told THR that he wanted the moment to be genuine when he said it, explaining why he chose to reveal the news this way.

“art of the reason I did it that way is because I didn’t want anybody to be the person who then tells somebody else, who then tells somebody else, who then tells somebody else,” Noah said. “And this is where we create the thing. [The show] is where we’re together, our space, and so for me, it felt like the most natural way to tell everybody at the same time.”

The Daily Show airs weeknights at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central. Episodes are made available the next morning for streaming on Paramount+. The show will go on a hiatus after Dec. 8 and will return on Jan. 17, 2023.
