Have you been watching John Oliver’s takeover of The Daily Show this summer?
He’s adorable. And British.
But my favorite thing? There’s much more dancing on The Daily Show with John Oliver as host. This is just one example:
IMO, the only thing that Jon Stewart has over John Oliver at this point is interview skills, so when Jon Stewart comes back this fall, here’s the format I’d like to see:
Jon Stewart is still billed as host. John Oliver sits next to him at the desk. Jon Stewart still delivers his fine commentary on current events and the state of the world. Jon Stewart still interviews all the guests.
And in between segments and as they go out for commercial breaks, John Oliver dances.
That will be the perfect news show, don’t you think?
Update: NPR published this interview with John Oliver the same day I published this post.
