John Oliver's First Day on "The Daily Show" Is "Weird" But Great

By Dustin Rowles | Videos | June 11, 2013 | Comments ()


John Oliver debuted as this summer's host of The Daily Show last night, filling in for Jon Stewart while he's in Italy learning to cobble shoes. Alas, a previously designed first show was tossed after it was revealed that the government is apparently dialed into our baby monitors and listening to us have sex in the middle of the night. Or something.

Either way, the opening was very Jon Stewart, only with a British accent and a little more enthusiasm (Stewart clearly needed a break, as the second Obama administration had not given him much to work with ... until now).

    As a huge fan of John Oliver's "The Bugle" podcast, I look forward to he and the writers working to find his voice and make the show his. As I recall, it took awhile before John Stewart wasn't just doing Kilborn.

    It would help if he lost some of the Stewart mannerisms too.

  • Fredo

    I got a very "John in The Bugle" vibe. He even apologized for cursing so much at the end. I think he'll do fine.

    And yes, I had to partake in the #JohnOliverBlewAGreatDane fun.

    Oh, i was just about to ask in FB group you 'mericans about it. So? Worth a watch? Even if it will be a little outdated by the time i get to see it?

    He said "fuck" a lot more. I'll give him that.

    It was funny. I do think the writers will need a little time to settle in and realize they are writing for Oliver and not Stewart, but the show (especially the middle segment, with the correspondents) was good.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Poor John Oliver, I do feel for him. I think everyone expected British whimsy on his first week, at least, not what is probably the shittiest shitstorm since the days of Dubya.

    Oh man...can you imagine Stewart's reaction watching from home? lol
