New York — Comedy Central says “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah underwent an emergency appendectomy Wednesday morning.

The procedure went well and Noah was expected back on the show Thursday, the network said.

A repeat episode was to be aired Wednesday.

Noah took over as host of “The Daily Show” in September, succeeding Jon Stewart, who stepped down in August after 15 years.
