John Oliver to take over 'The Daily Show' host job on June 10
We all knew John Olivier was going to guest host The Daily Show in Jon Stewart's absence this summer, but now we know when to potentially start watching Friends reruns (more than usual, anyway). Oliver's stint will begin June 10, Comedy Central reports.
While Stewart is off making the decidedly unfunny Rosewater, Oliver will take the anchor desk while also hosting the fourth season of John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show, notes Entertainment Weekly. Stewart will be back Sept. 3.
”Don’t worry, it’s still going to be everything that you love about The Daily Show, just without the thing that you love the most about it," Oliver said in a press release. Oh, come on, anyone who can almost injure a camel on assignment in Wisconsin is worth at least a four-day trial period.
