How Trevor Noah plans to shake up The Daily Show

Comedy Central’s nighttime lineup is in the midst of a transformation. First Stephen Colbert left for the bright lights of CBS, and now Jon Stewart, longtime host of The Daily Show, will officially sign off the air on August 6 after an impressive 16 seasons run.

Replacing Stewart as host of The Daily Show — Comedy Central’s most popular program by far — is South African comedian Trevor Noah. In the wake of Noah’s hiring, Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless said that the cable channel opted for Noah out of a desire “to find someone who brings something really exciting and new and different.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Series Trailer

Watch the first trailer for the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ animated series

Despite relatively low expectation, Guardians of the Galaxy was one of the most joyful (and financially successful) surprises of Marvel’s ever-expanding canon. Sure, half of them were aliens, but they still somehow felt more human than the Avengers — flawed, goofy and prone to making terrible mistakes.

We’ll have to wait nearly two years to see the ragtag team on the big screen again, but if you’re just dying to see them action before then, you might want to keep an eye on Disney XD this September when the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series debuts.
