Jon Stewart Signs Off For The Summer With A Shove From John Oliver

Jun 7, 2013

As you may have heard, Jon Stewart is taking a hiatus from The Daily Show to, among other things, work on his first feature film, Rosewater. He'll be gone 12 weeks, and eight of those weeks will include new episodes of the show hosted by correspondent John Oliver.

Last night was Stewart's sendoff for the summer — the math suggests you'll see him again in early September — and Oliver wasted no time in making it clear that he's in charge now.
