Who could replace Jon Stewart?

Jon Stewart’s surprise announcement on Tuesday that he is retiring from “The Daily Show” has raised questions about who will replace him as host once he leaves the show later this year.

Stewart has been the host of the popular Comedy Central show since 1999, and his departure leaves a coveted TV position open for the taking.

Many of the show's previous talent, including Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell, have used "The Daily Show" to skyrocket to fame, proving it can be a launchpad for future success.
