no title

When we heard Jon Stewart was leaving The Daily Show later this year, Samantha Bee was at the top of our list of potential replacements.

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:

“After watching Sam’s work for years, we knew that her distinctive humor and talent belong at the front of her own show.”

Heck to the yeah!

Sam been killing it on The Daily Show for 12 years — the longest tenure of any correspondent!

It’s about time this funny lady took over the world!
