After all the talk about the transition, nothing much changed except the host. “Monday’s Daily Show arrived looking more or less (and reassuringly) like itself,” says Hank Stuever. “Same theme song, same desk arrangement; some light housekeeping, such as sprucing up of fonts and colors that make the show look a tad more Indecision 2016 instead of Indecision 2004. The host is a little spiffier too; as he grows more comfortable, he might even learn to laugh less at his own jokes. Then again, that habit — which Noah shares with a few late-night hosts — can also be endearing.” PLUS: Noah handled the show too carefully when he really should be grabbing it and making it his own, Noah was cool and aloof in a Johnny Carson vein, saying “BS” and “sh*t” without bleeping seemed like forced edginess, Noah is more the charming and wide-eyed new kid (with a killer wink) than the jaded but bitingly hilarious host Stewart was, Noah needs to give his audience less of what it wants, Noah lacks Jon Stewart’s edge, new correspondent Roy Wood Jr. was the breakout star, and Noah brought likeability and charm — but does that count for much in our snark-infested social media culture?
