‘Daily Show’s’ John Oliver to Host HBO Show



HBO has won the sweepstakes to land John Oliver for a show. The “Daily Show” correspondent’s move to topline his own series was only a matter of time after his well- received stint substituting for Jon Stewart this summer.

HBO said Thursday that Oliver will host a weekly topic comedy series to air on Sunday nights starting next year. The lanky, energetic Brit has been widely praised for his sharp take on American pop culture and for his ability to pull off absurdist stunts in interviews and field reporting assignments for “Daily Show.”

“We weren’t otherwise searching for another weekly talk show, but when we saw John Oliver handling host duties on ‘The Daily Show,’ we knew that his singular perspective and distinct voice belonged on HBO,” said HBO Original Programming prexy Michael Lombardo. “We are extremely excited that John has agreed to make HBO his home.”

Oliver’s move is a loss for Comedy Central, which presumably was hoping to capitalize on the momentum he gained at the “Daily Show” anchor desk from mid-June through the end of August, while Stewart took a hiatus to direct a film.

Oliver has also hosted a standup showcase for the cabler for the past four years, “John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show.” And he has a recurring role on NBC’s “Community.”

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining HBO, especially as I presume this means I get free HBO now. I want to thank Comedy Central, and everyone at ‘The Daily Show’ for the best seven and a half years of my life,” Oliver said. “But most of all, I’d like to thank Jon Stewart. He taught me everything I know. In fact, if I fail in the future, it’s entirely his fault.”

There was no word yet from HBO on a producer or target premiere date for the series.

Oliver gained notice in the U.K. a decade ago with a series of performances at the  Edinburgh Festival and other comedy fests. He and longtime collaborator Andy Zaltzman co-write the weekly satirical podcast “The Bugle.”

John Oliver's new HBO show has a name and a premiere date

HBO has finally told us what we should call John Oliver’s upcoming late-night series, besides The Reason There Are No Charming British People On The Daily Show Anymore. Instead, we’ll be asked to call it Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, in reference to how it will look back at the events of the last week, tonight, with John Oliver. Furthermore, HBO confirmed an April 27, 11 p.m. premiere for the first of 24 ordered episodes—a number that will surely grow if the combination of Oliver and The Daily Show’s former head writer Tim Carvell continues to yield the sort of entertainment it did during Jon Stewart’s hiatus over the summer. Now the rest of us just have to do things they can make fun of.

show is definitely funny but hopefully as time goes on he'll get more comfortable because he still seems rushed/nervous at times...his Miss America bit was great though as well as the Ferguson stuff I definitely enjoy watching the show when I catch it but its not something I watch every Sunday

Wow no one talks about this... the recent episodes about the French elections and Gerrymandering have been spectacular and all the Trump Troll commercials should have this thread booming
