      •  Thank Christ Jon Oliver is on HBO (0+ / 0-)

        I'm still baffled he had fans on the Daily Show and was handed the hosting gig. No doubt Jon Stewart, who loves unfunny Brits for some reason, would see to it that Oliver would get his own show, instead of the infinately funnier and charismatic Jason Jones.

        •  I was pleasantly surprised (0+ / 0-)

          when John Oliver took over for Jon Stewart. I'm not sure if he or anyone else can take a character and make a show out of it like Colbert. Plug in any of the alum and you'll just have The Daily Show, part II.

          instead of the infinately [sic] funnier and charismatic Jason Jones
