‘The Daily Show': What can we expect from Trevor Noah’s debut?.

Trevor Noah’s first guest on his “Daily Show” will be comedian Kevin Hart, to be followed the next night by New Jersey Governor and current GOP presidential hopeful Chris Christie.The post-Jon Stewart version of “The Daily Show” with Trevor Noah will start off with an eclectic mix of guests, Comedy Central revealed Wednesday.
