Jon Stewart Picked the Perfect Moment to Leave ‘The Daily Show’

Comedy, as even the greenest open-mic comic can tell you, is all about timing. And timing isn’t just about how long to pause before a punchline or how long to let a heckler ramble before clobbering them; it’s about knowing when to get the hell offstage, and how to close with your strongest material. For just over 16 years now, Jon Stewart has carved out an inestimable niche as a satirist, media commentator, and talk show host — but he’s still a stand-up comedian at heart, and you’ve gotta give his surprising-but-not-surprising Daily Show retirement announcement this much: it’s perfectly timed. After a decade and a half of exquisitely executed double takes and deadpans, Stewart knew when it was time to say, “Thank you, goodnight!” and head to the… Read More

Larry Wilmore’s First ‘Nightly Show': Not Perfect, But Very Promising

With the instant feedback of Twitter and recaps passing firm judgment from the very first moments of a new television show, pressure is immense on the new crop of late-night talkers — Larry Wilmore’s Nightly Show, James Corden’s Late Late Show, and Stephen Colbert’s Late Show — to hit the ground running; you can hardly imagine these hosts getting the weeks (or even months) that it took for Conan O’Brien or David Letterman to find their footing, their voice, and their shows. So it’s worth nothing that the very first joke on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore was this quote-worthy barb, on the troublingly homogenous Oscar nominations: “They’re so white, a grand jury has decided not to indict them.” In its inaugural outing, Wilmore’s show still displayed some roughness (or, more accurately, a bit too much smoothness). But at its best, The Nightly Show brings a welcome edge and missing voice to the late-night landscape. Or, as Wilmore put it, “It’s Comedy Central’s worst nightmare: a brother finally gets a show on late-night TV! But of course, he’s gotta work on Martin Luther King Day. Let’s do this!” … Read More
