Which ‘Daily Show’ Correspondent Should Replace Stephen Colbert? [Poll]

Comedy Impact Report

CBS has officially announced that Stephen Colbert will be replacing David Letterman on “Late Show,” causing the domino effect of finding a suitable candidate to replace the comedian’s popular Comedy Central show.

While Comedy Central is being coy about that position, saying it will take some time figuring out what to do with that time slot, an insider says the job could go to someone already associated with sister program “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

But who would that someone be? Which of these current “Daily Show” correspondents would you like to see replace Stephen Colbert?

  41. Huh! says:

    John Hodgman! I can’t believe Samantha Bee is leading the poll! (not my cup of tea)

  42. Niles Shaynes says:

    Why replace Colbert Report at all? Make the Daily Show an hour long, for heaven’s sake!

  43. Audrey says:

    Reblogged this on Belle Boulevard and commented:
    Could we have a woman as the new Colbert? Will she have a character as well, or merely extend her persona from The Daily Show. Is there room for new talent not associated with John Stewart? This is an exciting moment in the Late Night race, and I really home some talented female comedians can step up to the plate and make me proud.

  44. guppalouie says:

    I have to agree with Michael A. Ventrella – give Stewart an hour!!! Great idea.

  45. Warren says:

    Ditto John Oliver

  46. alba carson says:

    John Oliver should replace Corbert

  47. Bill says:

    Whenever Samantha Bee is on the show I turn it off
