Last Week Tonight Review: John Oliver Injects HBO With The Perfect Dose Of Satire And Wit

Watch Jon Stewart's Touching Philip Seymour Hoffman Tribute

There are plenty of tributes being ushered out into the world in honor of Philip Seymour Hoffman. The recent (and if we’re being honest, devastating) loss of the esteemed actor came as a shocking blow to the entertainment community in addition to the world at large. So it’s no surprise that Jon Stewart used his typical end-of-episode “Moment of Zen” on The Daily Show to honor the late actor.

Samantha Bee has always been a comedic dynamo when it comes to her reporting and varied contributions on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, but Tuesday night the esteemed comedian took it to a whole ‘nother level with her staggering commitment and subsequent hilarity played out in an incredible performance art piece regarding the roundtable antics of Fox News’ afternoon news program, The Five.

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.

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.

Jon Stewart's Daily Show Return Earns Big Ratings

Plenty of people claimed that they didn't even miss Jon Stewart when John Oliver took over the Daily Show anchor desk for the summer-- but apparently there were even more of them just counting down the days until Stewart's return. The ratings for Tuesday's Daily Show episode, Stewart's first since going on hiatus in June, were up 24% from the episodes that Stewart had hosted earlier in the year

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.

President Barack Obama visited The Daily Show on Comedy Central to discuss the election, the recent Presidential debate, and his policies.

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.

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?

"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.
