    I'm ready for it. I missed all the political comedy shows over the break. Glad they are coming back.

    Sunday nights are weird without Oliver closing the week. Not that I want him doing 52 shows a year... but you definitely feel it when he's not there.

    Also glad the show w/b back. I don't think I really gave Oliver much attention until he hosted TDS for Jon Stewart, when he was out making a movie. He handled that brilliantly and when he got this show I was definitely in.

    I compensate by watching episodes of Hasan Minoji's Patriot Act. Very similar deep-dives but often with a PoC spin.

    I've said it before, but it's funny that ex-Daily Show-ers are doing similar shows.. This one, Samantha Bee's show.. and both of them do far fewer episodes.

    At least they've had plenty of time to come up with a new batch of "The Trump Presidency, or as we like to call it, _____."

    John has been making the rounds on the talk shows this week. He‘s put on some weight and looks considerably older than he did on his last episode.

    Three months off and his top two topics on his first show back were Brexit and New Zealand. Huh?

    I can see Brexit...that's a much, much bigger deal than the US press seems to understand, since the failure of the Brexit could (probably will) have serious negative impacts on the entire world's economy. So I think it's good that he's trying to keep us current on the impending disaster.

    As for New Zealand, well, that's exactly the kind of weird, inconsequential story he loves! I half expected him to put a map of something other than New Zealand up, and eventually say "And that's NOT New Zealand!" ;)
