Jon Stewart Shrugs Off Future President Hillary Clintons Read ;

Jon Stewart has no grave concerns about Hillary Clintons personal email use while Secretary of State. Still, he used some Daily Show time to make fun of what he sees as a non-scandal, and all of those involved. The future president as Stewart referred to Clinton on Wednesday did not have an official government email account during her time in office, possibly breaking federal record-keeping rules. Clearly, the Comedy Central figure doesnt believe this will impact her likely 2016 candidacy.

Jason Jones Leaving The Daily Show

  Jason Jones is leaving The Daily Show to star in the semiautobiographical TBS sitcom he and Samantha Bee co-wrote. (The untitled family comedy earned a ten-episode pickup today, TBS announced.) Jones confirmed his exit on Twitter this afternoon , writing, "For 9 & 1/2 years, I have worked at one of the greatest TV shows of all time. But... It is time for me to go." Jones andBee, his wife and fellow TDS correspondent, will write the pilot and serve as executive producers for the series, but Bee's future at The Daily Show is unclear. She's not in this new sitcom Natalie Zea plays Jones's wife and she's TDS 's longest-running correspondent, and thus in the running for the anchor seat Jon Stewart is about to vacate. Comedy Central did not yet return a request for comment, but we hope their comment is "change is terrible and we will do literally anything to keep Samantha Bee."  Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2015/02/jason-jones-leaving-the-daily-show.html

Why Jon Stewart Is Leaving The Daily Show, and What Hell Do Next

  Jon Stewart was talking aboutSenatorMitch McConnell sort of. He drives me crazy, although hes fun to mimic, Stewart told me in October. But they all do. Ive been doing this too long. Honestly, its breaking me. Im broken.   He was joking and he wasnt. Which is why yesterdays announcement that Stewart will leave The Daily Show later this year is jolting, but it shouldnt be surprising. Last fall, on the eve of his writing-directing feature-film debut, Stewart openly wrestled with how much longer he wanted to keep doing the TV show that made him famous. It wasnt hard to see which way he was leaning. Im thinking about it a lot, he said . The thing I struggle with here is the feeling that Im going to run out of possibility.   Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2015/02/why-jon-stewart-is-leaving-what-hell-do-next.html
