Before we welcome 2016, let’s look back at this year in TV, movies, radio and media from A to Z.

Fox Broadcasting

Four new fall TV series debut this week – including the heavily promoted Fox comedies starring John Stamos and Dayton native Rob Lowe – but the biggest TV event is the reboot of “The Daily Show” with Trevor Noah Monday night.

The South African comedian has the unenviable task of taking over the anchor desk from Jon Stewart, who won 22 Emmy Awards there, including best Variety Talk Series and best Variety Talk Series Writing last week.

If you’re recording Jon Stewart’s last “The Daily Show” at 11 p.m. Thursday, set the DVR for an hour. Comedy Central’s schedule plans for at least a 50-minute farewell for Stewart, who’s leaving the show after 16 years.

Before Stewart says goodbye, Comedy Central will air a 12-hour marathon Thursday, starting with a repeat of Monday’s show with Amy Schumer (10:28 a.m. Thursday) and Tuesday’s show with Denis Leary (11:01 a.m.).

The reruns shows with Steve Carell (1:17 p.m.), Newt Gingrich (4:38 p.m.), Bill O’Reilly (5:38 p.m.), President Barack Obama (7:20 p.m.) and a special called “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: News Your Own Adventure” (8:56 p.m.).
