Jon Stewart will not be able to make fun of the first big Republican debate. His last Daily Show is tonight.
Tonight at 9pm ET the top 10 Republican Presidential candidates will appear at the first big debate broadcasted live on Fox.
The debate will include the top 10 candidates in an average of recent national polls. Donald Trump leads the crowd and he will be the reason for most people to tune in tonight. The other candidates include former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson;,Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
Tonight also marks the the day of the last The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. After 16 years he exits his incredible fake news show. He will be replaced by young South African comedian Trevor Noah.
Trevo Noah's first Daily Show will air on September 28. By then today's debate is old news.
Donald Trump will though be likely entertaining without the need of Jon Stewart's commentary. Trump has never been on a debate stage before. He is not really rehearsing.
"These politicians, all they do is debate," he told Fox News, saying he's "not really" rehearsing. "I think you have to be yourself," Trump said. This will be fun.
The last guest on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart was Lewis C. K. Wednesday night. The last show airs tonight at 11/10c on Comedy Central. The final episode of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart is almost double in length. It is not clear what to expect. We expect many special guests to pay tribute to Jon Stewart. On the other hand he had already top guests leading up to the final show.
It could also be that the final show will be a big reunion with former correspondents including Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Steve Carell, Ed Helms, Olivia Munn, Rob Riggle and Rob Corddry. Many of the former Daily Show correspondents went on to become famous actors or host their own show. To have all of them united in the last Jon Stewart show would be incredible TV.
