Help John Oliver Stage a Daily Show Coup de Stewart
"As you may have heard, I’m going to be hosting The Daily Show this summer in place of Jon Stewart, while he directs Transformers 4*. (At least I think that’s what he’s doing. To be honest, when he told me that I had to sit in for him, I passed out—but before my head hit the floor, I’m pretty sure he mentioned something about fighting robots.) This means that one of the most beloved shows on American television is going to be temporarily in the incapable hands of an imposter.
The way I see it, I’ve got just three months to destroy everything Jon Stewart has spent fourteen years building. It won’t be easy, but I think it can be done. I know it’s going to be tempting for people to react to this news by not watching the show, but I wanted to take this opportunity to convince you otherwise. Because there are going to be a few big changes, and you’re not going to want to miss them.”
