Yes, we’ve lost Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, and it’s hard facing a world without him.
But it’s really not that bad, in fact it’s great, because not one, but two extremely talented people have already stepped into the void.
John Oliver is doing a show on HBO – Last Week Tonight – that delves deeply into topics we don’t normally think about, and I don’t think Comedy Central would have let him do that show. Certainly not without commercial interruption.
Also, Stephen Colbert is bringing his incredible intelligence and humor – and his Colbert Report writing staff – to a massive mainstream audience on CBS he couldn’t dream of reaching on Comedy Central.
So, Jon, enjoy your rest. Stephen and John have got this.
