But then we found out her hubby Jason Jones was leaving to star in a sitcom she was co-creating on TBS, and her exit was pretty much guaranteed.
Now we've just learned the news is way better than that. Besides being behind the scenes on that show, the longtime fake news correspondent is doing something else for TBS…
Hosting her own satirical comedy show!!!
Executive VP of original programming Brett Weitz said in a statement:
Bob's still got it!
Something amazing happened during the Jon Stewart hosted Night of Too Many Stars, which airs March 8th.
They're just like old frenemies, hanging out, trading insults… and then punches?!
Wow, these two really must hate each other.
Even though its been almost two decades since Happy Gilmore came out, it looks like this feud won't die… until one of them does!!
Who wins the epic showdown??
Check out the video (below) and find out!
Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show and there's nothing we can do about it.
Sure, we could spend our days crying, but that still won't make Jon stay.
What's worse, people like WWE superstar Seth Rollins think they can do better than Jon! Last month, Seth said:
"Hell, if I wanted, I could become president. Or I could take over as host of The Daily Show for Jon Stewart and make that thing actually watchable."
Whoa! Those sound like fightin' words!
So what did Jon do?
He showed up on WWE and confronted Seth Rollins, face to face!!
No one knows yet, but we can cross another name off our list!
Longtime correspondent Jason Jones announced on Tuesday morning that not only would he not be taking over the main desk — he's leaving the show too!
He seems excited to be entering the unknown!
Everyone is wondering what the funny man's next step will be!
Well, he finally revealed the answer on the Employee Of The Month podcast. He said:
We LOVE this man AND his accent!
However, when the host of Last Week Tonight appeared on The Tonight Show this past Tuesday, Jimmy Fallon reiterated the news that John's HBO show has just been picked up for two more seasons on the premium channel.
Which means John Oliver will definitely be sticking around there until at least the end of a fourth season in 2017!
Here's what the president of programming of HBO Michael Lombardo said in a statement:
One man is annoyed. Of course, Bill O'Reilly is always annoyed, so it's difficult to gauge the degree…
But his reaction to his longtime foil finally walking away is a little unexpected; Bill is actually trying to use the celebration of Jon's career as proof of liberal media bias!
He says that he wouldn't get the same reverent treatment when he retires, since he's a "traditional American."
Aww, Bill. There is DEFINITELY a media bias at play here.
But it's not because he's a liberal, and you're a conservative. It's because he's beloved, and you're… Bill O'Reilly!
Step into the "no-spin zone" to see Bill get hot under the collar — and we think a little bit sad! Do it live (below)!
