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 don;t know, but they have run their Comedy Roasts late at night 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.

I'd say they did this obliquely, with the Moment of Zen being his "Moment of Zen" from the show where the studio electrics went out.

My total guess would be during the months when Real Time isn't on?

I'm guess concurrently. Real Time is on Friday nights, J.O. is going to be on Sundays.

I hate when they promote shows so early, like I can set up a season pass right now.

I know!


I end up creating a task on my phone's task app that is hidden until a week before the airdate.

I watch enough on HBO that I'll catch the trailer a few times and it will remind me. I will bet that Oliver makes an appearance on TDS to plug the show. He and Stewart are pretty tight so I imagine it will happen. From the trailer it looks like it's going to be REALLY good.
