Uff da. It truly is an end of an era: After 16 years, Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show . Tuesday, Comedy Central announced that the venerable host of the iconic "fake" news show will sign off at the end of 2015. Well, this is quite the summer bummer (and it's only February).

So, who will replace Stewart? It goes without saying, but those are some pretty big shoes to fill. Comedy Central has yet to announce who will take the spot at the helm of the satirical TV show, and I can't see into the future, so I sure as shoeshine do not know the answer. Sorry, pal.

...However, I can share my wish list, because while I am no soothsayer, I do know who I'd LOVE to watch host The Daily Show (other than Jon Stewart, of course). And you know what? All of my dream Daily Show hosts happen to be women.

Damn, I really, really hope Comedy Central chooses a woman to be the new host. It's 2015, for pizza's sake. The lack of women late night talk show hosts would be downright laughable if it wasn't so frustrating.
