John Oliver Takes Over for 'The Daily Show'

by Kaitlin Reilly

Jon Stewart is taking an eight-week hiatus from The Daily Show this summer. while his may have you imagining Stewart spending a lazy summer sipping Pina Coladas on the beach, Stewart is actually taking this vacation from the show to direct his first feature film Rosewater. (If I were famous, I'd be spending the summer laying out in the sun on St. Bart's and being fanned with palm leaves, but whatever. His call.)

This summer, Jon Stewart's hosting gig will be taken over by John Oliver, one of the writer's of the show... and he's pretty excited about it. Check out the video below in order to watch Stewart's goodbye to his viewers... and Oliver sticking Stewart's pens down his pants. It's going to be a great season.
