It'll be interesting to see who they bring in to replace him. Noah never really clicked for me the way Stewart did. I'm a tough critic when it comes to comedians though and not many click with me.

Stewart is in a class of his own. However, I liked the outside perspective Noah brought. I thought he was good.

I've had zero interest in it, even the commercials are not funny. Stewart was fantastic. Kilbirne before him was good too

I completely stopped watching it with Noah. Just not a good presenter. The pacing and tone was always very stilted and just couldn't grab my interest

Even when the topic was interesting, it was a chore to watch him present it

Some of the feature segments were good and thankfully you don't need to watch the show to see them

Following Stewart was a near-impossible task. Noah was fine, but he didn't grab my attention anywhere near the level that Jon did.

I watched Noah and Stewart before every day until the pandemic. I didn't like the format after the pandemic. I did like Noah though.

I was shocked when he announced his departure. I guess he is going on a global stand-up tour next. There was no way he could do that and still do the show. Good for him. I really liked him even though prior I had no idea who he was. I couldn't believe it had been 7 years since Jon departed.

I would love to see someone like Tina Fey takeover. She was rumored to be a possibility when Noah took over.
