Isn't Stewart a bit of a loose cannon to be running Nightly News?

I don't see Nightly News hiring someone from a comedy news show.  It just doesn't fit the character of the spot.  Also Stewart in that spot wouldn't be nearly as interesting.  You would kill a lot of what makes him interesting.

Jon Stewart hasn't been burping and farting the 'news' for the past 16 years.  There have been numerous stories that had to be dealt with with a serious tone.  Stewart holds the demographic NBC Nightly News would kill for.  Think about it.

The job is his, if he wants it.

Not saying that hasn't done real news or that he does not have a good show.

This is more about image and you don't hire a comedian to do the Nightly News on network TV.  Maybe they do go that route but that is a huge risk.

As for his demographic, how many fans will follow him to see him read the news and not make sarcastic comments. The appeal of his show is him making fun of politicians and other news worthy topics, doing nightly news would be against his brand.  Take that away and do straight news and who cares about him except that he doesn't have the background. 

I just don't see this happening and don't see it happening successfully.
