Weiner should legally change his name to Carlos Danger and try running for Mayor of LA

Quick CSB time.

Funny part about all this is I have a cousin who's actual name is Carlos Danger. People keep trying to interview him about NYC politics and his election campaign. My cousin lives in Florida.

I missed John Stewart at the helm, but Oliver did a bang up job.  He was true to the Daily Show, but didn't try and just do a John Stewart impersonation.

/Well done

I totally agree. He made it his own without in any way slagging off Jon. I really hope he gets his own show so we can have an hour and a half of glorious comedy/commentary/interviews from Stewart/Colbert/Oliver four nights a week.

If you're not careful, Comedy Central will have to split off a new 24 hour comedy news channel.

/come to think of it, I'd watch that
//It'd probably also have the most integrity of any privately owned news network in the US

I also loved the one recently where they were talking about NYC's Hispanic voters, and Al Madrigal was doing the dance to "Peligro!"

I actually found myself enjoying Oliver more than Stewart after Stewart came back. I don't know why, but it just seemed like he was having more fun. Maybe it's just because of years and years of watching Stewart use the same voices and expressions and whatnot, it was a breath of fresh air.

Infamous for his https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4o-TeMHys0 "the rent is too damn high" spiel, former Damn Rent Party gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan threw his support to Weiner on Thursday.

"We all are freaky," McMillan told the New York Observer. "He just exposed his freaky-ism in the wrong way."

Shiat, if his endorsement made the big news sites, Weiner would've won.

I wanted Stewart to come back from making his movie, hand the keys over to John Oliver, and then ride off into the sunset.

I agree! It's good knowing that Stewart can take a long absence and the show can still go on and be awesome.

I disagree. I think what John Oliver needs is a morning news show.

Actually, they should just turn The Bugle into a morning tv show. John and Andy on The Morning Bugle would be the best morning show on television.

aaand now it's been overdone./how bout olliver hosting fri-sun and doing shows all week?//ok I guess the rest of the staff needs breaks

I saw an article that said that John Oliver's work as host made them appreciate Stewart  less, because it showed just how damn good the writers are.  I was marginally concerned at the outset, but Oliver did a great job.  Helps that the tale of Carlos Danger is late-night comedy gold.

/Also, probably would have been tough on Stewart to riff on Weiner for that long, since they're friends from pre-fame days.

They get the best writers now, but that's only because Jon built the show from a two-bit knockoff of SNL's Weekend Update to getting sitting heads of state in for interviews. Also, check out some of the "The A Daily Show" episodes back during the writers strike where Stewart was, by union rule, not allowed to prepare any scripts. They're not the same as with his writing staff, but they show Jon isn't just an anchor.

Having a stack of jokes in front of you isn't all there is to comedy. The guy that decides what gets aired and what goes in the round file is critical to the show's success. I assume Jon has veto power over pretty much everything.

Plus it's important to know how to deliver the joke. A few of those first Daillivers (can I call them that?) had some awkward timing moments before John Oliver finally settled in.

According to an article I read about Stewart and the Daily Show a couple years ago, that's correct. Stewart goes in a room and does a run through of the show, during which, at a very rapid fire rate for producing television, changes bits around, throws some things out, adds others in, etc.

I feel the same way but to be fair, Jon Stewart has been covering the absolute inanity of American politics for so long he is just beyond bitter and disappointed.  John Oliver was just taking in the opportunity and having a hell of a time.

Both fair points.  I guess the point is that while Stewart is absolutely to be praised, there are a lot of good people over there behind the scenes too.

It's a little bit more complicated than that, though, because John Oliver wasn't allowed to strike with the rest of the writers due to being on a work visa.  So, during that run he and Jon Stewart were just about it on the Daily Show.
