Samantha Bee will be departing The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Bee, who is the most well known Daily Show correspondent, will leave for TBS. She will now be hosting her own comedy series.
She will however be able to use her satirical attitude to poke fun of current issues. The move will be a huge loss for Comedy Central, and make for great competition to the network.
Samantha Bee is just another case of talent stemming from The Daily Show that have moved on.
John Stewart gave John Oliver his own weekly late night show, Last Week Tonight.
Stephen Colbert left Comedy Central to replace David Letterman at the Late Show.
Jason Jones, who is Bee's husband, said his goodbyes to the program last month. He will now star to star in his own TBS sitcom.
