Trivia / The Daily Show

  • The Pete Best: Remember when Craig Kilborn was the host? Yeah, us neither.
  • Recycled Set: When Stewart made his debut, the set was exactly the same as the one Kilborn used at the end of his run as host. Averted with Trevor Noah's run, which features a new set and all new graphics and logos.
  • What Could Have Been: Amy Schumer, Amy Poehler, and Chris Rock were offered the show as replacements for Jon Stewart. They all turned it down for various reasons (Amy Schumer didn't want to constrained to the daily production routine, Amy Poehler just wasn't interested, and Chris Rock only wanted to do it until the election was over).
