Trevor Noah's 'New & Sexy Daily Show' Has A Premiere Date

'The Daily Show With Trevor Noah' will officially premiere September 28th on Comedy Central.

In March, South African comedian Trevor Noah was announced as Jon Stewart's successor as host of The Daily Show. The news came just five months after Comedy Central first brought the Soweto-born media personality on to join The Daily Show's cast as a correspondent. In December, Noah made his debut as “Senior International Correspondent" with a brilliant segment called “Spot The Africa," which he followed up with two more appearances ("Boko Haram In The Media" and “Chess News Roundup)."
