Like John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight, The Daily Show is settling in for the long haul. Comedy Central confirms Trevor Noah has extended his contract through at least 2022, with the the addition of annual year-end specials.
Is Jordan Klepper the next Stephen Colbert? That’s certainly a question the new Daily Show companion series The Opposition With Jordan Klepper seeks to answer, along with a host of other conspiracies. See for yourself in a first teaser, along with correspondent news.
Much as we’ll miss The Nightly Show, we’re willing to give The Daily Show’s new 11:30 P.M. companion a shot. Join The Opposition With Jordan Klepper, as the new series from a former Daily correspondent sets its September premiere and synopsis.
The Daily Show has gone on long enough that you’d have a hard time picking any one dream cast to reunite. Nevertheless, Stephen Colbert may have found it, setting joint Late Show appearances for Jon Stewart, John Oliver, Samantha Bee and more.
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.

If ever there were a time for President Obama to show his anger, Key & Peele’s Luther would be it. Watch the pair make their final appearance on The Daily Show, as Luther tries (and fails spectacularly) to keep his anger toward the new President-Elect in check.
