Trevor Noah Makes Summer TCA Debut for 'The Daily Show'!

Trevor Noah is all smiles while speaking to the press at his The Daily Show with Trevor Noah panel during Viacom Networks portion of the 2015 Summer TCA Tour on Wednesday (July 29) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Also in attendance were Rachel Brosnahan and John Benjamin Hickey onstage during their Manhattan panel discussion for the WGN America portion, as well as director Angela Bassett for her Breakthrough panel discussion at the National Geographic Channel portion.

Trevor, 31, opened up to reporters about what changes we can expect from The Daily Show.

“In terms of the show, physically, we are obviously changing the set a tiny bit,” Noah expressed (via IGN). “We still want the show to be recognized as The Daily Show because that’s what it still is. In terms of content on the show, I guess we’re still dealing with the same issues. The issues are not really changing in America and in the world, so really it’s just a different angle that we are looking at things from, and it’s my angle, really, but the show still has its voice. It’s just that I’m at the helm taking things in a slightly different direction but still trying to get to the same end place.”

Jessica Lange Talks About Leaving 'American Horror Story'

Jessica Lange dresses up while attending a For Your Consideration event for her series American Horror Story: Freak Show on Thursday (June 11) at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles.

The Emmy-winning actress was joined by her co-stars Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Finn Wittrock, Denis O’Hare, Naomi Grossman, and John Carroll Lynch.

Jessica chatted with Deadline this week about her decision to leave the show after four seasons.

“When I originally agreed to do this, it was for one season. [I thought], ‘This will be interesting to try this. I’ve never done this kind of television before.’ Then I had such a great time doing it the first year, when they approached me to do it again I thought, ‘well okay, maybe we can do it season to season,’” Jessica said. Instead, I agreed to do three more seasons. And that was fine because I’ve had just such a great time doing it. I have no regrets or second thoughts about that decision. But there’s always an end to everything.”

FYI: Sarah is wearing a vintage Yanina Couture dress, Kurt Geiger heels, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and Loree Rodkin jewels.
