The field of candidates still in the running to become America's Next Top Jon Stewart just got a little smaller today with news that Jason Jones will be leaving "The Daily Show" in the near future.
Jones, who's been a correspondent on the late-night series since 2005, announced his departure on Twitter Tuesday (Feb. 24). In a second tweet, he added that he's hopping from Comedy Central to TBS, where he'll make "another great show."
Variety confirms that he will depart "The Daily Show" later this year.
That other "great show" on TBS Jones tweeted about is a family comedy that "follows a couple and their two kids on a road trip to Floria," according to Variety. The as yet untitled series stars Jones, Natalie Zea, Ashley Gerasimovich, and Liam Carroll.
Jones will also serve as executive producer of the TBS show alongside his wife and fellow "Daily Show" correspondent, Samantha Bee.
Speaking of Bee, a spokesperson for Comedy Central confirmed to Variety that she will not be leaving "The Daily Show" anytime soon.
Does that mean she'll be taking over "The Daily Show" following Stewart's departure? Jessica Williams definitely isn't interested in the position, and Bee is the most senior member of the cast. And also amazing. And great. And hilarious. And -- I GOT SOME WOOD I GOTTA KNOCK ON BYE.
