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