The main anchor is currently Trevor Noah (who took over in 2015, replacing [[Creator/JonStewart Jon]] [[Series/TheDailyShowWithJonStewart Stewart]], who in turn took over in 1999, replacing [[ThePeteBest Craig Kilborn]]), but it's launched a few careers among its correspondents. Creator/SteveCarell and Ed Helms are successful alums, and Creator/StephenColbert got his own {{spinoff}} program called ''Series/TheColbertReport'' (a parody of confrontational talk programs such as ''TheOReillyFactor'') which became a runaway success leading him to be picked [[Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert to take over]] for Creator/DavidLetterman. Two other ''Daily Show'' alums were given their own Comedy Central shows, Creator/LewisBlack's ''[[Series/RootOfAllEvil Root of All Evil]]'' and the critically acclaimed ''Series/ImportantThingsWithDemetriMartin''. The show's writing staff has also published two books in connection to the show, both parodies of high-school textbooks; they are ''[[Literature/AmericaTheBook America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide To Democracy Inaction]]'' from 2004 and ''[[Literature/EarthTheBook Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide To The Human Race]]'' from 2010.
