The Daily Show has seen a lot of talented comedians come and go under the tutelage of Jon Stewart, and none have followed in his footsteps quite as closely as John Oliver. Well, his footsteps led to HBO instead of Comedy Central, but you get me.

Watch John Oliver Rant About Student Debt On Last Week Tonight image
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver has made a habit of pushing relevant topics in a manner that is funny and manages to work for a platform that only airs once a week. He made waves recently when tackling the net neutrality argument, and this week he covered the equally controversial topic of student loans.

Watch Jon Stewart's Return To The Daily Show, Aided By A Big Mac image
By the time John Oliver really hit his stride as the temporary host of The Daily Show, it became easy to stop hoping for Jon Stewart's return-- something I'm not sure any fans of the show could have imagined when Stewart first announced he'd take the summer off to direct a movie.

Watch: John Oliver Takes The Lead And Delivers Laughs At The Daily Show image
"Welcome to The Daily Show. I am John Oliver and let's all just acknowledge for a moment that this is weird," Oliver said in his opening for last night's episode. And he's kind of right. He isn't the first new host of The Daily Show, but considering Jon Stewart's been doing it for more than a decade it is a little strange to see someone new (temporarily) serving as host of the series. But I suppose fans will get used to the shift over time as the summer progresses. And based on Oliver's open, it looks like we're in for a funny summer.
