South African comedian Trevor Noah is the latest (and last, for a while) new player in TV’s game of late-night musical chairs. At 31, he’s also youngest, and promises to adapt Comedy Central’s The Daily Show for a new generation while trying to preserve its outsize cultural relevance.
Noah becomes the show’s third host Monday (11 p.m. ET/PT), seven weeks after Jon Stewart packed it up after a 16-year run. Kevin Hart is his first guest, followed later in the week by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and singer Ryan Adams, a sign of the show’s continued interest in a blend of politics and entertainment.
Longtime fans needn’t fret, Noah says in an interview. While he plans some format tweaks, the biggest change will come in “the way we look at stories, or even how I present the stories to the audience.”
