John Oliver is a Christian?
Well, he's not Jewish.
I think he did a good job. I think Stewart would have done a good job. It's interesting to think about.
Given how giddy he was and how much he talked about his feelings about Christ, I would assume so.
Is this some sort of trick question, where people claim that the Church of England isn't a Christian church or something? Am I missing a joke or reference?
Oh, I agree. I wasn't trying to say anything negative about either guy, I was just thinking out loud how different it might have been with Jon, but only because of his Judaism and thus a different perspective than John Oliver has. Not that either would have been necessarily better or worse than the other, simply different.
Oh sure. I get that. It was interesting to think about once you mentioned it.
I'm getting a little tired of the nightly opening segment disclaimers about why Jon Stewart isn't there. I get it. He's off doing a movie. He'll be back.
I've seen him live. If he is, he isn't very religious.
I still think it is funny to see what other outrageous things they come up with. It's 10 seconds of the show.
I like it too. It's a running gag.
I like it too. It seems to me the right way to go for this show. At least he's not just saying the same thing and it's a new gag each time.
Not to take ANYTHING away from Stewart, but I'm surprised at how much I'm liking Oliver hosting. I didn't not like him before but I was just mostly 'meh' about him. As a host he really shines. Of course I miss Stewart, but he could not have done better for a sub. I think it was a great choice, rather than having different guest hosts all the time.
I agree 100%!!!
I always liked John Oliver and he is doing a fine job as the host!
I love the running gag at the top of each show, and that the art department has gotten into it and is photoshopping Jon's face onto funny pictures. They'll continue this until September when JS is back, so if you don't like it, no point in complaining about it.
I know quite a few christians who aren't particularly religious. But that doesn't alter that their perspective on the story of Christ would be different from someone who was never a Christian.
I like Oliver just fine but then again, I like most of the crew that they have now (I'm *sooooo* glad they got rid of Oliva Munn) so I probably would have liked whoever got picked. Especially since the writing staff is intact.
Actually, now that I think about it, it would have been better to give each of the crew a week at the helm. It would been nice to see Sam Bee & Jessica Williams at the desk. Besides Chelsea Handler, are there any other female hosts?
I like it better they gave it to Oliver the whole summer. I think there's more continuity that way, and I'm not sure that the others could do it. I think Sam Bee could. Not sure about the others. Although a week with Lewis Black as host might have been interesting!
Cardiac arrest before the first Thursday show.
I can take Lewis Black in small doses. But as the host? I think I'd hate it.
What was the reference for the pic of JS they showed at the beginning of Monday's episode?
I liked his "Root of all Evil" show.
