Looks like there will be one less face on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Jason Jones has been cast as the star of How to Be a Better American, an ABC pilot.

While Saturday Night Live was known for decades as the place to develop new comedic talent for Hollywood, The Daily Show has become the new talent gold mine for the past few years.

John Oliver recently left for work on other shows; Samantha Bee – though still a correspondent, and is married to Jason Jones – ┬áhas guest-starred on some shows; Stephen Colbert has The Colbert Report that airs right after The Daily Show; Rob Riggle has also had success, including The Hangover – which co-starred other The Daily Show alum (and current The Office star) Ed Helms ; Rob Corddry has been getting steady work as well.

Probably the most successful of the bunch would be Steve Carell, with the smash hits The 40 Year Old Virgin, The Office, & Get Smart to name a few.
