How do you feel about the Daily Show with Trevor Noah?
Posted 9/29/15 , edited 9/29/15
The first episode premiered last night and I was curious on how people felt about the "new" Daily Show.

Right now it feels like he is keeping himself very close to Jon Stewart's comedic thoughts more than going out on his own path right away. Although, I feel this is to be expected since he is trying to please long time fans as well.

I thought he was fine for his first day. The joke about an immigrant taking the jobs the Americans didn't want was really funny! I can see him taking the show and doing fine.

South African comedian who has a pretty interesting background in what he had to go through before coming to America and eventually taking over as the host of the Daily Show.

I was originally a critic when it came to him replacing Jon but I think its fitting to have somebody from outside of the United States be able to pull their own comedic spin on our politics and life style.

Haven't seen him in action yet, but I will get an "impostor alert" feel to it if his charm is similar to Jon's.

It makes me so mad.

Did very well for a first episode. I'm sure they rehearsed the heck out of it and the whole team brought their A-Game because the first appearance is extremely important, and they also managed to introduce a new correspondent. He'll become more different from Jon over time as he gets used to things, right now he and the writing team are doing their best to make a smooth transition.

They didn't want to pull a Conan.

Felt a lot like The Daily Show to me, as someone who hasn't missed an episode for many years. With the same writers and most of the same correspondent, it's The Daily Show, just with a fresh face.

I like Trevor. Since the announcement, i've seen one of his standup specials (it's available on Netflix) and I think he's really funny. And, I think over time he will bring a different voice to the show.

It's his first day, so he's too cheery and excited, and doesn't have that weary Jewish-humor voice-in-the-wilderness sympathy that Jon Stewart could get whenever the Republicans or Fox News did something silly.
Still, at least they kept their "Continuing the war on Bulls**t!" battle cry.

After that Mars segment, though, I'm worried the show may be trying to keep the "diverse" feeling of the host, and bring in more black comics, who, no offense, aren't....really....that political in their humor, and pretty much reduce everything to "White people be crazy!"
