Week of 10/26: DARK!

       Hmmmm..... My first guess is that Trevor will be doing stand-up as a cross-promotion as the TDS host, but I checked his show dates and his next one is on Nov. 14. My second guess is that it's the week of Halloween so they're probably not gonna invest in doing Halloween-based shows and they'll take the week off. Please correct me if I'm wrong about my assumptions....

 

       I only wonder because it seems a bit odd for the show to take a break 4 weeks after debut; otherwise, I guess Trevor+company need a breather after taking the reins.

I think the dark weeks are set far in advance. Remember, all of the shows ("Daily Show," "Nightly Show" and "@Midnight") are off at the same time, and the latter two haven't been off since Labor Day.

 

This does mean that they'll miss the next Republican debate (scheduled for Oct. 28), but it's not like there won't be loads more to come...

Real Time is off next Friday but will air the 30th while Last Week Tonight is airing the next two weeks (may be off Nov 1st I didn't investigate that far) so this appears to be a common break.

I totally read "David Holbrooke" as "Richard" and gasped. "But he's dead!" Then I re-read.

 

This whole list looks good, actually.

I love that show! I'm so disappointed I can't watch it now that I don't get the ESQ channel anymore. It's just everyday stuff, like knocking on a door or petting a dog or digging a hole or lighting a match, but he manages to over-analyze it to the point of entertainment.

Ugh. Unrepentant beater-of-women Chris Brown. Why does anyone give him airtime??

The Tonight Show had R. Kelly on last night. It is very disappointing that these unsavory people are given such huge promotional opportunities.

Luther?  Did they do a new series?  Are they just putting it on BBCA or Netflix?  What odd timing!!  (Although I will probably watch that interview and highly recommend Luther -- it's a bit crazypants but in a good way.)

I was downright angry when I saw Chris Brown on the schedule. Then I tried a mantra of: "Maybe Trevor will call him to account. Maybe Trevor will call him to account...." But cancelling is better.

If anyone would, it might well have been Trevor. His mother was shot in the face by his step-father in 2009, he has spoken out about how badly domestic violence is dealt with.

Wow, apparently the staff was "split" on the booking of Brown, according to this Daily Beast article. Whatever went down, good riddance, say I.

Several Daily Show staffers told The Daily Beast that Brown's interview booking has become a cause for concern around the office. But while many staffers disapprove of the booking decision, host Trevor Noah allegedly hopes to use the interview to bring light to domestic abuse issues. Our sources confirmed that Noah brought up such a possibility during an all-hands meeting on Monday afternoon.

Based on Brown's past behaviour, I'm sure that would have gone terribly.  Like, "storming off set smashing shit" terribly.

Maybe that's what happened during the taping, and they decided to replace him last minute instead of airing it.

I got the email announcing the change at 3:30 PM Eastern time, and I believe the show tapes around 6 PM, so I don't think that's the case.

12/16: Will Smith (actor – promoting movie “Concussion”)

 

That will be interesting as I'm almost positive 85% of Trevor's "Black American" impression is based on Will Smith (see around 3:50 on the video).

Thanks for the link and screenshot, dusang. Yes, I heard WIll Smith. I also heard Denzel Washington's character Alonzo from Training Day

 

I just love Trevor's grasp of accents, American and non-American. It works well on TDS. 

 

In contrast, based on the short clips I've heard, Will Smith's Nigerian accent in "Concussion" is horrible. I wonder if they'll discuss the challenge of doing accents. I have to imagine it must be difficult to pull one off for an entire movie.

I'm surprised a) that an Fox "News" Channel personality has been invited to TDS, b) that said personality accepted said invitation, and c) that he had the audacity to title his book that.

Wouldn't it be funny if Tuesday's TBD turned out to be President Obama, given how whinny privileged crybaby Bill Maher has been using (abusing) the White House's petition website to get the president on Real Time?

I always assume when it says TBA that it's going to be a major "get" that they want to keep quiet. Personally, I'd bet on Hillary in a pre-Iowa Caucus appearance. I don't think it'd be Bernie since he's already appeared on "The Nightly Show" three times so it wouldn't be as big a deal.
