Who will replace Jon Stewart?

As the news satire king gets ready to step down, Comedy Central has shortlisted replacements for The Daily Show.

At this moment however, it is all mere speculation as tweets start filing in of potential A-List comedians. Joel McHale, Chris Rock and John Oliver seem to be the top choices, but one thing is for certain – the man who sits in Stewart’s chair will have very large shoes to fill.  Stewart become larger than life through this show, massively influencing U.S. politics and culture. The popularity of The Daily Show escalated with Stewart’s satire showing signs of busting the American supremacy myth.

With the general gloom in the air on Stewart’s departure, social media has erupted with speculation.
