Top 5 Daily Show Correspondents of All-Time

View Comments(0)

It was announced this past week that another disciple of Jon Stewart and "The Daily Show" will be getting his own show; this time it will be "Senior Black Correspondent" Larry Wilmore. Wilmore will be taking the time slot immediately following "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central, which will be open when Stephen Colbert leaves his program at the end of 2014 (more on him later).

Seeing another "Daily Show" correspondent get his shot got us thinking: who are the best correspondents to make it big after their run on "The Daily Show"? Well, here is our list:

1 (tie). Steve Carell

Credits Include: The Office, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy, The 40 Year-Old Virgin

It was impossible to decide between Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert for the top spot in our list, so it was deemed a tie — it was completely even Stephen. Lame joke, but it perfectly segues into the video to the left that features arguably the best recurring segment in "Daily Show" history. Carell and Colbert are two of the biggest stars in world now, which make watching these videos even more awesome.

Goodbye, Breaking Bad

On Sunday, we all said farewell to what is widely referred to as the best show on TV, "Breaking Bad." Yes, it's been almost a week, but we're still not over it, especially given that many fans said "Breaking Bad" gave the perfect finale. Regardless of how you felt about it, "Breaking Bad" will likely be one of those shows, like "The Wire" or "Sopranos," that is talked about long after it's over. To ease your woes, check out the Jimmy Fallon clip at left parodying the show and know this: one, now we can marathon the entire series as frequently as we want; and two, AMC announced a spin-off show, Better Call Saul.
