Remember when news broke that Jon Stewart was leaving The Daily Show? Remember how we all decided to pretend that isn't really happening just so we can get out of bed in the morning? Well, that lie just got harder to believe.

Samantha Bee, one of the show's best correspondents, is jumping ship this summer. Don't cry just yet though; she's moving over to TBS for her own show, which will be "a platform for Bee to apply her smart and satirical point of view to current and relevant issues." We can get with that, right? This new show joins the previously announced comedy series she's creating and executive producing alongside fellow Daily Show correspondent and husband Jason Jones (why didn't anyone tell me they were married?!).
