Trevor Noah understands change is hard, especially for fans of beloved TV shows.
"When Aunt Viv changed on 'The Fresh Prince [of Bel-Air],' I was like, 'What the hell is going on?'" Noah recalled last week on the phone from his New York City office. "Then after a while, you're like, 'Oh yeah, there was an old Aunt Viv. I forgot about that.'"
No offense to the actresses who played Will Smith's mother figure, but Noah is living through a more daunting task: taking over “The Daily Show” from Jon Stewart, the man who built the brand — and brought sharp, political wit, insight and credibility to Comedy Central — from 1999 to 2015.
Noah — a 32-year-old native of Johannesburg, South Africa — said most fans, even Stewart loyalists, realize a transition like this takes time and patience.
