It’s a good thing last night was funny because tonight we’re going to be talking about Ferguson and that’s not very funny at all.
In the category of bad news I spoke too soon about, as it turns out Sam Bee will not be staying with The Daily Show and will instead be joining her husband Jason Jones at TBS.
Variety reports that Comedy Central is looking for a new host in their 30s with a distinct take on culture, news and politics. They mention Amy Schumer or Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer of Broad City as being candidates.

- Tuesday 3/10: Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer

Gerald Posner will be on to talk about God’s Bankers, the history of the Vatican Bank. He has a rather checkered past having been involved in several plagiarism scandals and a law suit by Harper Lee over the publication rights of To Kill A Mocking Bird. Since Lee has been in the news recently and Miami Babylon (one of the allegedly plagiarized works) has been optioned for TV it’s possible those subjects will come up, but knowing Jon I somehow doubt it.
