    Piers Morgan is a tool.

    I think it's clear he's playing a joke to a joke, and he's just not any good at it.

    I can't stand Piers. He's ruined that show.

    Well, no, old whatsisname killed the show.

    Surprisingly, I'm having just the tiniest bit of trouble transitioning back. It has less to do with Stewart than the subject matter (Syria.)

    All the ludicrous stuff happened this summer. I would have given anything to see JS cover the Carlos Danger story.

    Same here. I miss John Oliver though.

    For some reason, I am having a hard time getting back in the swing of things with JS as well.

    I love John Olive dancing whenever he says Carlos Danger.

    Oh good. I'm not the only one. The subject material definitely didn't help John Stewart's transition back into the show. Once John Oliver hit his groove, he was (is) really fun to watch.

    Loved Oliver's Brit redrawing the middle east. Good stuff!

    I'll just say, I'm happy to have Jon back though. I thought the into on Tuesday, trying to get Jon back in shape, was way funny. They had a great time with his beard!

    Agreed. All the different phases of shaving that he did were hilarious, and they didn't really even highlight it. You had to be paying attention to see all the different versions. The only one that was obvious was the Hitler one.

    It's nice to know that if JS takes a break, that JO is there to take over. JO was one of the pleasant surprises this summer. To me it felt a little weird that first night with JS back, but I'm already back in JS mode. I'd be surprised if someone doesn't talk to JO about his own show at some point.

    Yes, choreographed well. Someone spent some time figuring out what different shaves and characters you could do and in what order.

    Well he has his own comedy show, but overall I thought that was pretty bad. I stopped watching it a couple weeks ago. Of course that is more the talent they have on then then JO himself.

    I suspect he won't be around long enough to take over for JS again. I hope I'm wrong.

    Well I mean more of a talk show type of thing than hosting a stand up show. I figure someone like FXX or, why not someone like NBCSN who just got the English soccer deal? I don't know if he's a soccer guy (I am guess in he is), but they could do some tie in stuff.

    Last night's episode had Michael C Hall (love him!) as the guest, so if anybody didn't catch last night's Daily Show, you might want to look for this one. They re-air each episode a few times.

    Yeah, he seemed more on last night.

    I think Syria is bumming everyone out.

    It always took Johnny Carson a few shows to get his timing back after being away for a few weeks.
