This morning, Chris Rock tweeted his approval of Jon Stewart's replacement with a phrase you've probably seen on Twitter before:

In case you didn't know, it was confirmed today that South African comedian Trevor Noah will take over as host of The Daily Show when Jon Stewart leaves.


I'm sure with this comparison Chris Rock was referring to the fact that—with only a few months under his belt—Noah is the "junior senator from Illinois" of Daily Show correspondents.
