Are They Dating?
Although Noah is saying goodbye to the Comedy Central show, as the TV presenter publicly announced yesterday, things seem to be looking up for the South African native on the love front. Photos making rounds online showed the 38-year-old locking lips with the British singer and sharing a sweet embrace as they made their way out of Miss Lily’s.
Snapping inside the restaurant and walking to their car, the prospective couple appeared to be having a good time, with an onlooker telling the Daily Mail: "They were quietly sat away from everyone else at the restaurant. It was clear they were into each other and sat close together throughout the meal."

For their low-key date night, the "Future Nostalgia" singer went casual-chic in a low-cut black top and ultra-baggy jeans. She wore a black leather jacket and accessorized with snakeskin-print flats and a matching purse. Chunky hoop earrings and a collection of rings on her fingers spruced up the look. In terms of hairstyle, she went with a simple mid-part, letting her long brunette tresses flow freely down her back and shoulders.
Meanwhile, Noah, who is 11 years Lipa senior, looked dapper in a green military-style jacket worn with a classic black shirt and matching jeans. He finished off the ensemble with black-and-white Nike sneakers.

The 'Daily Show' Exit
As for Noah leaving the Comedy Central show, the TV host broke the news during yesterday's taping. He expressed "gratitude" for his time at the helm and described the journey, which for him began in 2015 when he took over the mantle from Jon Stewart, as "wild."
"I remember when we first started, so many people thought it was a crazy bet; I still think it was a crazy choice, this random African… what a journey it's been. It's been absolutely amazing," told the live audience.
Noah added: "After the seven years, my time is up. In the most beautiful way. I've loved hosting this show."

According to the Daily Mail, which cites ShowbuzzDaily.com, the late-night infotainment show has seen a sharp drop in viewership after Stewart's departure -- from around 1.5 million per episode, and as high as 2.5 million in 2013, to just 363,000 in the week of September19-25. Running every week from Monday to Thursday, the show is regularly nominated for Emmy Awards but hasn't won since Noah took over.
