Not-so-funny comedian Trevor Noah has just announced that he is stepping away as the host of the Daily Show, a spot he took over after Jon Stewart left in 2015. With Stewart hosting, viewership per night averaged 1.3 million. After Noah took over, viewership dropped 75%, with an average viewership last week of 363,000.

On Thursday, the unpopular host announced his departure from the show after a seven-year run. At the end of his show, Noah said, “I realized, after seven years, my time is up.” He likely also realized how bad his ratings had become.

“I’ve loved hosting this show. It’s been one of my greatest challenges. It’s been one of my greatest joys. I’ve loved trying to make people laugh, even when the stories are particularly shi*tty on the worst days. We’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together. But, after seven years, I feel like it’s time.”

During Trump’s presidency, Noah was particularly obsessed with mocking Trump. In fact, it seemed as though he didn’t have any other material. The leftist applauded him for his cleverness and humor, endlessly promoting him.

Suddenly, he pivoted and began to tear into the Biden Administration and Democrat vaccination rules. However, not nearly with as much force as he continued to mock the GOP.

That was his downfall. Suddenly, the left-wingers didn’t particularly like him and neither did the right-wingers. Everyone began to realize – if they hadn’t already – that he wasn’t actually funny when he wasn’t railing into your political opponents.

The political comedy got old and overdone, and so did Noah.
