We Want to Live in Hot Tub Time Machine 2‘s Version Of the Future, If Only For Jessica Williams As Daily Show Host

Give us this.

The Hot Tub Time Machine franchise doesn’t tend to be my aspirational jam, except in one area: The area in which Jessica Williams is the host of The Daily Show in 2025. (You may recall we were already trying to make this happen IRL.) Such was the case for Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and it’s an image I’d like us to hold close — though I would prefer if the timeline was moved up a bit, as I’d like her to be the host by, say, 2016. Samantha Bee would be good, too.

If all goes according to plan by 2025 Williams will be a straight-up millennial Oprah. As she wrote in Wired this December:

Thankfully I already have a mogul I can pattern myself after: Oprah. We’re a lot alike. I’m black, I love to relate things people talk about to myself, and people think my best friend and I are lesbians! My strength is that I’m more relatable. Maybe I’m missing a shirt button, maybe I have a food stain on my pants. People would grow to find that endearing. (Take that, Mom! I don’t need to “clean myself up” to keep a job!)

Your move, Daily Show.

A bonus in this video: Jennifer Lawrence promoting her Meryl Streep biopic, Streepin’ It Real. I dig it.
