PHOENIX -- The Daily Show is in the news a lot these days! Earlier this month, host Jon Stewart announced he is stepping down. So as we move into awards season, folks from the show will be at some of Hollywood's biggest events.

And now there's a chance for you to get in on some of the action.

Two of the stars of The Daily Show joined Scott Pasmore on Tuesday's Good Morning Arizona to explain.

But Scott's first question for Samantha Bee and Jason Jones was to inquire about who is taking over for Jon Stewart.

"I don't know," said Bee. "Do you?"

"Scott Pasmore, my money's on you," said Jones.

Real-life spouses Bee and Jones are teaming up with Butterfinger candy to bring fans exclusive, on-the-ground, behind-the-scenes coverage. The campaign aims to “butt into” the events and fanfare surrounding Hollywood’s biggest season, in order to inject a bit of deliciousness and unexpected fun.

"I think Butterfinger thought of us because they knew we're kind of irreverent, and they're a bit irreverent, and they wanted someone who could "butt into" awards season," says Bee. "And we do know how to butt in."

Armed with a supply of Butterfinger peanut butter cups, the duo will hit the streets of New York and Los Angeles to uncover the behind-the-scenes stories of awards season.

Consumers can join in the fun beginning February 11 by following the action at ButterfingerCups.com as well as Facebook.com/Butterfinger and Twitter.com/Butterfinger.
