John Oliver’s Summer Stint As ‘Daily Show’ Host

by Daina Amorosano, Viacom

After much buzz, it’s finally happening: John Oliver is taking over as host of The Daily Show for the summer, starting tonight at 11/10c on Comedy Central. Stewart passed the torch to Oliver this weekend, and if the farewell bit (above, and definitely worth a view) is any indication, we’ll be informed and amused until Stewart’s return.

As a primer, you can also check out some of the best of Oliver’s correspondence, below, and his Q&A with the NY Times, in which he talks about the preparations he’s been taking (an extremely strict physical regiment, he says).
