John Oliver Leaving The Daily Show To Host His Own HBO Series
Comedian John Oliver has spent a lot of time with The Daily Show. He’s been a correspondent since 2006, but now the Emmy award-winner is moving on to a brand new project. Unlike Stephen Colbert, who stuck with Comedy Central after leaving The Daily Show, Oliver will be hopping over to the subscription cable network HBO. He’s signed a deal to star in his own topical series that will air on the network in 2014.
The Colbert Report Wins Big Against The Daily Show At 2013 Emmys
There were a lot of upsets, obvious wins, and sort-of surprises during last night's 2013 Emmy Awards telecast. The win that was likely the most impressive but the least talked about was Stephen Colbert’s dethroning of John Stewart’s The Daily Show for the first time in a decade.
Watch Jon Stewart's Return To The Daily Show, Aided By A Big Mac
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. But now that Stewart really is back, and Oliver is returning to the correspondent's chair… man is it good to see that clean-shaven face again
Watch: John Oliver Takes The Lead And Delivers Laughs At The Daily Show
"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.
Jon Stewart And Stephen Colbert Praise The People Of Boston When Addressing The Marathon Bombings
"To Boston. Thank you. Thank you for once again, in the face of gross inhumanity, inspiring and solidifying my belief in humanity and the people of this country," Jon Stewart told the people of Boston when addressing the Marathon bombing at the start of last night's Daily Show. The host went on to equate New York's competitive spirit with Boston to sibling rivalry. "We are your brothers and sisters in this type of event," he said.
John Oliver To Host The Daily Show For 8 Weeks This Summer
Long running TV programs often take a few weeks off in the summer, but apparently John Stewart is really blocking off a huge chunk of the summer to devote to other projects, despite The Daily Show still airing for part of the time. Daily Show correspondent John Oliver will fill in for eight weeks during Stewart’s leave.
Watch President Obama's Interview With Jon Stewart On The Daily Show
President Barack Obama visited The Daily Show on Comedy Central to discuss the election, the recent Presidential debate, and his policies. As was expected, the interview found a balance between humor and serious issues as Stewart brought up some of the things discussed during the debate, the comparison between the first debate and the second, and how often Joe Biden shows up to meetings in a wet bathing suit. Watch the interview ahead!
Bill O'Reilly Visits The Daily Show Ahead Of His Rumble With Jon Stewart
Is it a good idea to put two fighters in the same room together not long before they're set to face off in the ring? Apparently that wasn't a concern for Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly. Their greatly anticipated Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium is set to stream live tomorrow (Saturday) from Lisner Auditorium at The George Washington University, and this week O'Reilly visited Stewart at the Daily show to give us a little preview of the kind of repartee we might expect from them.
South Park, Brickleberry, Tosh.0 And Indecision 2012 Featured In Comedy Central Fall Promo

Jon Stewart Blasts NBC For Skipping Olympic Terror Tribute
Last night’s Daily Show saw Jon Stewart making, in his usual hilarious way, a pretty serious charge against NBC. He blasted the network for choosing to air an interview between Ryan Seacrest and Michael Phelps rather than airing a 6-minute tribute to the 7/7 London terrorist attack victims at the Olympics. Are American audiences really not interested in taking a moment to remember the victims of the London bombings?
Jon Stewart Gets Called Out By Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell And Jon Hamm On The Daily Show
"When you bring a Jon Hamm into a situation, things just happen." - as stated by Will Ferrell during his Daily Show interview alongside The Campaign co-star Zach Galifianakis. Given the seemingly random and very amusing direction of the interview, which involves an appearance by Mad Men's Hamm, the former SNL star probably couldn't have said it any better. Watch the video ahead!

Jon Stewart And Stephen Colbert Receive Letters Threatening Congress
Jon Stewart's The Daily Show and Stephen Colbert's The Colbert Report regularly brutalize members of both parties, but those attacks are usually limited to a cutting wit and the keen edge of satire. This week, however, an unknown individual decided to use the shows to announce a much more serious threat to members of our government. According to law enforcement officials, both Stewart and Colbert received letters that threatened biological attacks on U.S. senators.
Watch Jon Stewart's SOPA Rant On The Daily Show
Wikipedia went dark, even Google “censored” their logo, and protests made their way around Facebook, all because of SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act. If protesting left you too exhausted last night to stay up for The Daily Show but you woke up this morning wondering what Jon Stewart had to say, the answer is plenty.
Piers Morgan Tonight Preview: Guest Seth MacFarlane Shares How He And Jon Stewart Had Words

However, every now and then there comes a story of a Hollywood encounter between two intelligent and well respected people, that strikes an interested beyond the tabloid.
