    at playing the role of Daily Show host, and it was fun to see his take on it, but it was still the same writers creating the same role (with a bit of an English twist).

    But Colbert created a different kind of show with a different kind of parody host, and I don't see any way John Oliver could play that role.

    I think you're right that Jason Jones would make more sense, but he would still be very different. I think he'd play it more like a parody of Eric Bolling rather than Bill O'Reilly.

    But nobody's going to replace Stephen Colbert, and I wonder if they'll even try.
