Watch Trevor Noah Announce He’s Ending His 7 Year Run as Host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show”

There’s no timetable yet for his exit, but now the question is whether the channel will continue the show and find a new host, or if this is the series finale. Since Samantha Bee’s show has been cancelled by TBS, she’d be a great replacement. A lot of people will vie for that job.
