“The Daily Show” will continue its work without Rob Riggle

altThe famous comic actor and the participant of the popular satirical TV program “The Daily Show” Rob Riggle decided to leave the show after 2 years of working on it. As the actor informed to the press, he is going to work on other projects. Particularly the famous actor will be in the cast of a new criminal show and a comedy series produced by CBS and CBS Paramount Network TV and this gives him a chance to be the star of primetime. It is known that he had already signed the contract with the enumerated TV companies.

As Rob Riggle says, his decision to cooperate with CBS was caused because of his desire to create some sort of such sitcoms as How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men, in such way he hopes to contribute to the comedy production. He also added in his recent interview that he had a great premonition concerning his new job.

Describing itself as a fake news program, The Daily Show draws its comedy from recent news stories, satirizing political figures, media organizations, and often, aspects of the show itself. Some of Riggle\'s most memorable work on The Daily Show included a segment where he went to Iraq to serve as a correspondent as well as entertain the troops under the purview of the United Service Organization. During the 2008 Olympics, Riggle also traveled to China to tape sketches for the The Daily Show, producing a four-part special feature titled Rob Riggle: Chasing the Dragon.

At the moment, Rob Riggle is pondering on several ideas, one of which may tap his background as a major in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.

\"I\'ve got a notebook full of ideas that I\'ve been keeping for many years,\" said Riggle, who is also credited for his roles on The Office, Arrested Development, Saturday Night Live and Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story.

For the upcoming Rob Riggle project, Peter Principato and Paul Young have been attached as executive producers with Riggle as producer as well.
