CBS Scores Another Daily Show Alum: Rob Riggle

CBS's comedy department is starting to look a little like The Daily Show, Primetime Edition. Current Daily Show correspondent Rob Riggle has just signed a deal to create and star in a half-hour CBS comedy, following a similar deal by Samantha Bee and Jason Jones last week.

Riggle is committed to The Daily Show through the end of the year, but after that, he'll make the jump to CBS to start working on his show. He's still kicking around ideas for the series, but one thought is that it could draw on his experiences as an officer in the Marine Corps Reserves, as Riggle's done before on the Daily Show.

I'm so glad to see that this wave of Daily Show correspondents will be branching out into new, cool-sounding projects, just like Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Rob Corddry, and Ed Helms did a few years ago. And hey, it looks like there will be some openings over at The Daily Show for 2009, so here's hoping the new correspondents they track down are just as funny as the ones who came before.

Are you excited to see Riggle get his own show? And are there any other current Daily Show correspondents who you think deserve a solo project?
