    I felt like he was getting back in to it with the lighter stuff Thursday.

    I mean, seriously, this whole Syria thing just sucks and with kids dying, it's hard to find an amusing take on any of it.

    Odd timing that the picture for The Daily Show on the TiVo switched to a picture of John Oliver right as Stewart came back.

    It's had Olivers picture for some time on my Dish Hopper. I wonder how long before it goes back to Jon Stewart.

    Congrats to John. Hopefully he'll be just as funny on his new HBO show as he was on TDS this summer. It will really all depend on the writers.

    Good for him...he deserves it!

    Bad for me, as we don't get HBO...

    I think it's great. This means we get to see both Stewart and Oliver hosting their own shows. Good for him - he was given an opportunity and knocked it out of the park.

    It will be interesting to see him in action without the shackles of censorship of regular cable.

    This. He did such a great job this past summer, I figured it was inevitable. I'm glad it's HBO since he can pretty much do anything he wants. I'll definitely be watching.

    Sad to see him leave TDS, but I noticed he hasn't been on all that much.

    TDS is interesting in that it really isn't censored in that they are still allowed to say what they want, cursing and all, they just bleep out the curse words. It's still REALLY obvious what they are saying though. Last night they had a story about the Toronto mayor who said something using a slang term for the female genitalia, and while they bleeped out the word, it was obvious what he said.

    On HBO no bleeping.

    Didn't TDS, at one time, run its late night repeat without bleeping?

    I think what happened is that TDS didn't bleep MILD cursing during its late night repeats. But the strong stuff was still bleeped.

    Aw dammit. It's dusty in here.

    Although I do wish they;d mentioned how completely awesome he was as Stewart's replacement.

    And I wish I got HBO.

    Anyone know when Oliver's HBO show is starting? All I know is "Sundays in 2014".

    Was looking for that yesterday; no date appears to be out there. Doesn't seem like it could be any earlier than March 16.

    I'm looking forward to Oliver's show on HBO. Did John do similar sendoffs for other popular cast members? Carell, Colbert, etc? I don't recall them. Oliver's was hysterical. Jon did all he could to keep it together.
