He broke the show!!!
That was awesome!!!
The Moment of Zen was outstanding. :up:
I loved the pure coincidence as John was talking about how the news team on Sorkin's show isn't necessarily better than a real life news team, as a staffer crawls under the camera shot to pick up John's notes and hands them to him from off camera. Neither of them could help laughing at that.
Oliver has had a recurring role on about a dozen episodes of "Community". I can't believe that he is just 36 years old ... I thought he was in his forties for sure!
Yep! I loved how Aaron couldn't stop laughing, "It's not like we intend to show you how to do a show..."
I loved his comment of "I did it, I broke the show"
I'm wondering why they couldn't use the handheld cameras on the main desk set.
Maybe they couldn't get the lights close enough.
It looks like they used a boom mic (you can see at the end) because the wireless lapel mics were also dead.
I think it had to do with lighting as well. I wonder if they had that all planned as a contingency or they just winged it.
I love Oliver "singing" TDS theme during the Moment of Zen. Freakin' hilarious!!
I absolutely loved his 'Jon - this is your moment of Zen', sweeping the view of the powered down studio. Also loved his apologies to Jon for breaking the Daily Show. Made me smile.
It looks like the wireless mics worked but they were way out in front of the set:
One of the writers manned a camera. I bet they don't have camera staff because the cameras are fixed and controlled remotely from the control room. A union grievance is being writ as we speak.
Look down at John Oliver's right ankle - there is a wired mic that an audio engineer is holding out on a boom pole, indicating that the body mics weren't working.
Moment of zen was so funny. Bravo, John.
Yeah. I missed that. That's the mic that pops up into the shot at the end.
They really did use a field setup.
It makes sense because the wireless receiver(s) is probably mounted in the sound console in the control room.
John Oliver did a great interview with Helen Mirren ("Dame Helen Mirren to us!") tonight. Also, perilously close to a wardrobe malfunction with John's adult diaper there!!
I'll be happy when Jon is back, but John is doing a great job.
Ha! Loved the 'broke the show' episode!!
I'm so glad I've hung in there. I had considered taking the summer off while JS was gone. Shame on me!
Haven't seen last night's episode yet (I'm always one day behind with this show) - sounds like another winner!
Oliver shines when he is improvising. The whole broken show bit, the closing to that show, and his interview with Dame Mirren were all terrific.
Darn it. Oliver proves as good as Stewart in getting me to REALLY REALLY WANT TO READ A BOOK RIGHT NOW!!!111!!
Zealot will probably be my next purchase.
I was thinking how different that interview would have gone with Stewart there. Olivers Christianity allowed him to treat the book differently than a non-Christian might have (I certainly would have treated it differently). Stewarts Judaism likely would have caused him to ask different questions.
But that's just a surmise.
I thought the same thing as well. Being Jewish, I look at Jesus differently than a Christian would. I'm sure Jon would has well.
