Revered though it was, Larry Wilmore’s Nightly Show never quite reached the heights of its former Daily Show-Colbert pairing. We’ll see if the next attempt does any better, as Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper will soon lead his own 11:30 P.M. show, starting as early as this fall.

There’s a certain theatrical nihilism to Donald Trump that lends itself well to Batman’s greatest nemesis, as we’ve seen Mark Hamill repeatedly demonstrate with his Joker-ized take on Trump tweets. As it turns out, the parallel works eerily well with other Jokers, as The Daily Show discovers with horrifying precision.

We’ll miss a great many things about both Obama and Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, but at least they’ll go down in a blaze of glory together. So it is, that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will bring Obama and anger-translator Luther back for one last appearance on tonight’s Daily Show.

If nothing else, the events of 2016 have gone to show us just how wrong presumptions can be, whether potentially hilarious presidential bids, or century-long baseball curses. Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver learned both the hard way, recalling past Daily Show clips in which he’d made catastrophically bad taunts in hindsight.

The cancellation of Larry Wilmore’s Nightly Show remains a sudden shock days after the fact, even as Wilmore gears up for his final show on Thursday. He certainly won’t be alone, as fellow Comedy Central departure (and executive producer) Jon Stewart will put in an appearance to help send off his show’s former “Senior Black Correspondent.”

We still don’t have the clearest picture of what ex-Daily Show host Jon Stewart’s HBO future looks like, though that hasn’t stopped Stewart from making headlines with his rescue work. Now, at long last, Stewart returned to late-night to reunite with Samantha Bee for her own Full Frontal TBS series and a little horsin’-around.

It’s difficult to say if Trevor Noah has found his particular Daily Show groove after ascending the throne from Jon Stewart in September, but where Noah hasn’t generally shied away from challenging guests, at least one punch has been pulled. Following controversial announcements of a Chris Brown interview, The Daily Show appears to have quietly canceled the appearance.

After the first episode of a new show, especially the first episode of an old show with a new face, everyone is ready to deem it either fantastic or awful. Did Trevor Noah ruin Jon Stewart’s legacy? Is The Daily Show a completely different beast? Should we stop watching now that some random unknown guy is hosting? The answer to all of those is no, or at least, we have no idea yet. But after watching the young South African comedian’s debut in Stewart’s chair on Monday night, it’s refreshing to say he did a pretty good job, and only time will tell how well he can carry the show.
