One more fake news retirement February 10, 2015

Aaaaand there goes Jon.

Wonder if he’s going to go off and do more movies, or if he really will retire and take the opportunity to relax for a while. Go on vacation. Spend more time hanging out with his kids, and/or enjoying his tens of millions of dollars.

Can’t say it’s a surprise — I wasn’t expecting Jon to stay too long after Stephen moved on — but, aaahhh, what happens next? Will the Daily Show move on to a third host? It survived the Kilborn-Stewart transition, but it’s a lot harder to imagine the Stewart era being topped. And the correspondents with the most hosting chops keep moving on to do their own shows.

(On the bright side, if TDS gets a new host who is a handsome guy in his ’30s, who perhaps has chemistry with some of the latest round of fetching young correspondents, and they’re all settled in by the time we hit the upswing of political interest around the 2016 election…we just might see a fake-news-fandom renaissance.)
