The world was shocked and saddened to learn that Jon Stewart was retiring!

It's truly the end of an era. Sad face.

Now that we know Stewart is leaving, who is gonna take over for him?

Word on the street is Joel McHale was in the running as a replacement!

But what does Joel think? He said:

"I don't think I'm smart enough to do the job. I think I come off as being smart. But deep down I'm really not. Plus, I've just signed on for two more years at E!, and I'm having a ball on that show. And E! has been incredibly good."

Ha! Sounds like McHale is a big fan of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

He then explains how his show, The Soup, is nothing like The Daily Show, saying:

"Jon Stewart deals with large, very important issues. We obsess about the weirdos on 'The Bachelor' who do ghost adventures and look for Bigfoot. So I think the show would not be up to the intellectual standards that everyone is looking for."

Yeah, we can totally see how Joel's brand of news is a bit different than Jon Stewart's.

So now we're left crawling in the dark, feeling around for a new Daily Show host.
