John Oliver Leaves Jon Stewart for Own Show On HBO

As a fan of Jon Stewart's Daily show you know that Daily Show correspondent John Oliver was hosting the show during last summer. Jon Stewart was out directing his first movie. The performance of John Oliver was excellent and now it pays off big time for the comedian. What I still remember most is John Oliver's hilarious dance move when Carlos Danger came up. Watch a compilation of that below. HBO announced that John Oliver gets his own weekly satire show starting next year.

The new John Oliver Show will like the Daily Show take a satirical look at news, current events and politics. It is supposed to get a Sunday evening slot. HBO specifically said that they wanted John Oliver because of his performance sitting in for Jon Stewart. 

HBO has already a satire news show hosted by the great Bill Maher. I am totally looking forward to the new John Oliver Show.

Should companies have the same rights as people? That's been the issue at the heart of the US Supreme Court's ruling on Monday that corporations are not required to provide contraception coverage for their employees.

Yahoo! Screen is picking up the series for a 13-episode sixth season, and is apparently interested in wrapping up the show’s “Six Seasons and a Movie ...

Sunday saw nation-wide gay pride parades bring to a close a month of celebrations recognizing the impact LGBT individuals have had on society. In honor of the occasion, John Oliver dedicated a lengthy segment to looking at the progress that has been made for equality at home, and the not progress that has taken place elsewhere, particularly in Uganda, thanks in no small part to American and British influence.
