Jason Jones and his wife Samantha Bee are the latest to take whatever fame and cred they’ve earned from “The Daily Show” and try to spin it into bigger success. The pair have signed up to create and write a new show for themselves at CBS, an untitled comedy about a celebrity chef and the woman who helps him run the empire of his chefdom.

Can’t say this is a surprise really, as (a) Jones and Bee are funny as shit and (b) they have been noticeably absent from “The Daily Show” of late (and while that’s surely due, in part, to their recent child, I suspected it was also because they were phasing out for an opportunity like this). But they’ll still be missed on “The Daily Show.” Especially Bee because, god damn it, there just aren’t enough funny women on TV these days, although new occasional “Daily Show” correspondent Kristen Schaal is trying her damndest to help fill the void and doing a pretty good job of it.
