Since news broke today that Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” has settled on its replacement for Jon Stewart, the media has offered a wide range of reactions, many of them along the lines of “who the heck is Trevor Noah.”
But what may be the best reaction so far — and it’s an angle we admit we didn’t think of — comes from Jenna Mullins, writing on E! News.
“Monday morning went like this for most people:
“Sees Trevor Noah is announced as replacement for Jon Stewart on ‘The Daily Show’
“Asks self: ‘Who?!’
“Googles ‘Trevor Noah’
“Sees photo of Trevor Noah
“Licks lips and says ‘I could spread him on a cracker.'”
Mullins goes on to say: “Yes, Trevor is hilarious, smart and will do a wonderful job manning the ‘Daily Show’ desk, but there are a lot of people on Twitter who are excited about this announcement simply because he is delicious and they want to gobble him up. (We’re one of those people).”
